Credit and information management company TransUnion has installed elements of the SYSTIMAX end-to-end connectivity line from CommScope (NASDAQ: COMM) in its new Northlake, IL, data center, the cabling and connectivity vendor reports.

The new data center is located within the recently opened CH2 data center facility owned by Carter Validus Critical REIT and operated by Ascent. TransUnion has installed CommScope's SYSTIMAX InstaPATCH 360 pre-terminated fiber connectivity products, based on the company's LazrSPEED multimode fiber. The fiber-optic cable infrastructure can support 10-Gbps transmission today while providing easy migration to support of 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps in the future, CommScope says.

"This new data center further strengthens our network and IT infrastructure with the best technology available. CommScope's high-speed connectivity solutions are highly reliable and we had a great experience working with them on this project," said Josh Neyer, global head of data centers at TransUnion. "We have a significant responsibility to provide our customers with a secure, efficient, and dependable service when managing their information. CommScope’s expertise in data center solutions has proven valuable in helping us carry out that responsibility."

"Consumer credit affects us all and the technology carrying our credit information has to be fast, reliable, and agile enough to support new technologies down the road," said Kevin St. Cyr, senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions, CommScope. "TransUnion continues to invest in their IT infrastructure, and we are glad they chose our connectivity products to see that through. I think that it’s reassuring to know that TransUnion’s network, and my credit information, runs on CommScope."
