What are the decisive criteria for data center cabling?
Digital transformation, Internet of Things, Big Data, Mobility and, and, and..... in the IT environment the hype topics never run out. Some are disappearing again, others are establishing themselves around the globe as fixed applications in business life. The lynchpin of this development is and remains the data center. This is where the technical prerequisites for all solutions are created, where all the threads come together. The data center is the central platform on which business processes are provided and handled. And they are the most important node for data transformation and secure data transfer. Intelligent, future-oriented cabling ensures that everything remains in flux even with growing data volumes.
Crisp Research analysts, whose forecasts are based on figures from IT provider Cisco, confirm that digital transformation is giving data growth a new boost. In 2019, the amount of data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) alone will be 269 times greater than the data that end-user devices transmit to data centers. This IoT data will also be 49 times larger than all global data center traffic in 2019.
Infrastructure as strong as an ox is in demand
Without stable data center infrastructures, this increase in data volumes can no longer be managed. Requirements such as speed, reliability and safety are becoming even more important than before. This guarantees stable data traffic and reliable data processing.
In this context, special attention must be paid to the cabling. According to current knowledge, around 50 percent of all network problems result from a faulty cable infrastructure. Many data center operators are therefore switching to fiber optic cabling more and more frequently. With PreCONNECT® PURE, Rosenberger OSI has a solution that is ideally suited for use in demanding data center environments. In particular, two decisive uncertainties that often affect the quality of data communication in high-end data centers can be eliminated with the solution. These are the contamination on the contacts of the fiber optic connectors and the uncertainties with regard to the actual attenuation budget. With the PURE product line we offer these quality killers a compact and cost-effective alternative to conventional solutions.
