Data center network cabling and connectivity vendor Panduit Corp. has unveiled the HD Flex Fiber Cabling System. The new line targets high-density requirements in high-performance data centers. The fiber-optic cable system's design enables technicians to perform moves, adds, and changes quickly and safely, without disrupting adjacent circuits, the company says.

"We found existing high-density systems on the market today were simply unmanageable. They weren't designed for easy moves, adds, or changes, and as a result technicians were disrupting circuits and experiencing very costly downtime," explained Khaled Nassoura, vice president of the Data Center business unit at Panduit. "The inflexibility of traditional enclosures was also making it difficult to migrate to higher data speeds. In a high-performance data center, which is constantly evolving, that's just not practical, which is why we developed the new HD Flex Fiber Cabling System."

Panduit touts several features of the new system that improve data center infrastructure efficiency. For example, the system offers fiber cable management that positions trunk cables away from the rear of the enclosure; this design improves access for moves, adds, and changes, Panduit asserts. Split trays located inside the fiber enclosure support safe moves, adds, and changes as well. And cassettes may be accessed from the front or back to ease installation and migrations from 10G to 40G/100G Ethernet.

The Panduit HD Flex Fiber Cabling System is available for immediate delivery.
