Corning Optical Communications LLC, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, will showcase its Pretium EDGE® optical cabling and connectivity solutions needed to support Top of Rack (ToR) designs that utilize 40G electronics at the 2012 BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition, in Orlando, on Feb. 12-15.
The following Pretium EDGE Solutions will be featured in the exhibit:
• Hardware required for proper ToR setup and deployment
• Cabling required for 40G connectivity, including 40G jumpers that help transition from the uplink switch ports into the structured cabling infrastructure
• Proper cabling techniques that improve airflow around the switches
• Modular components that allow for easy migration to 40G
Introduced in 2009, Pretium EDGE Solutions for data center applications provide ease-of-use, scalability, termination density and technology future-proofing, while offering excellent total cost of ownership. Enabled by Corning® ClearCurve® bend-insensitive OM3 and OM4 multimode fibers, Pretium EDGE Solutions allow for easier migration to 40G and 100G; up to 35 percent faster deployment; enable up to 25 percent faster moves, adds and changes (MACs); and offer up to 100 percent more density than traditional preterminated solutions.
Pretium EDGE Solutions are available and easy to order from Corning Optical Communications’ nationwide fiber optic distribution channels. To be one of the first to see the solutions, visit Corning Optical Communications’ booth #1101 at the 2012 BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition in Orlando.
