EDGE8® Solutions Make the Future Accessible

EDGE8® Solutions Make the Future Accessible

Our EDGE™ solutions are the industry’s first preterminated optical cabling systems specifically designed for the data center environment. They were built with proven EDGE technology and offer world-class density, network uptime, speed, and simplicity with a clear migration path to meet future requirements.

Modern technology roadmaps clearly indicate that transmission speeds ranging from 4G to 400G will be based on either 2- or 8-fiber connectivity solutions. That’s where the benefits of EDGE8 solutions become evident – all the value of our original EDGE solutions, with added network scalability, improved link performance, and the 100% fiber utilization of a base-8 design.

EDGE8 solutions strengthen your data center in three key areas:

  • Increased asset utilization, with reduced jumper complexity and the elimination of stranded cabling assets
  • Improved technology adoption, due to 100% fiber utilization without the need for conversion modules, which leads to cost and loss savings
  • Risk avoidance, providing a simple path to 40G, 100G and even 400G.

Do you have questions about your data center or base-8 technology? Do you want to know if EDGE8 solutions are right for you? Contact us today. We can help you make sure your data center is future-ready.

Faster Deployments That Save Space: Advantages of the MTP® Connector

Seasoned industry professionals may recall the excruciating, painstaking days of installing and connecting countless fibers, one at a time. As the number of data centers grew exponentially in the 2000s, designers and installers were tasked with managing hundreds and even thousands of single- and 2-fiber connector solutions. To accommodate the high volume of connectors within ever-tighter space constraints, installers and designers were forced to create more elaborate storage and routing solutions that came with their own set of challenges.

Fortunately, those days are long gone – thanks in large part to the emergence of the multi-fiber push-on (MPO) connector. The MPO format...

The Economics of Port Breakout

The Economics of Port Breakout

Port-breakout deployments have become a popular networking tool and are driving the large industry demand for parallel optics transceivers. Today, port breakout is commonly used to operate 40/100Gbps (40/100G) parallel optics transceivers as four 10/25Gbps (10/25G) links. Breaking out parallel ports is beneficial for multiple applications, such as building large scale spine-and-leaf networks and enabling today’s high-density 10/25G networks.
