Augsburg, April 25 2017 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), manufacturer of innovative cabling infrastructure solutions based on fiber optics has been awarded with the 2nd place of the German Data Center Award (DRZP) 2017 in the category “ideas & research around datacenters”.This has been announced on April 25 in Darmstadt, Germany, during the “future thinking” event. A novel fiber optic cable with Lotus effect has been awarded preventing adhesion of any contaminations on the fiber end surface. The product is currently in prototyping status.
"A big part of the interferences with fiber optic cables is due to the contamination of the connectors. Our goal has been to develop a connector which eliminates the adhesion of particles on its surface. The elimination of staining increases the reliability of the optical fiber links which results in more stable networks and the reduction of unexpected downtimes”, explains Paul Maier, product manager at Rosenberger OSI.
