Enable fast, easy data center interconnect (DCI) deployments with the Corning EDGE™ Rapid Connect Solution – one step in Corning’s journey toward a Data Center in a Day.

Designed to facilitate DCI deployments and connections between data halls, EDGE™ Rapid Connect Solution utilizes trunk cables with the all-new Fast Track MTP® Connector. Developed by Corning and US Conec, the Fast Track MTP® Connector’s small profile enables preterminated trunks with a reduced diameter pulling grip that can be pulled through crowded conduits.

In outside plant environments, the smaller two-inch diameter pulling grip allows EDGE™ Rapid Connect Solutions to be easily pulled through existing conduits – streamlining installation and giving data center operators a new path to extreme density. The grip is waterproof, capable of handling up to 600 pounds of pulling tension, and compatible with MaxCell innerduct. Best of all, installation is straightforward – no special processes or equipment required.

EDGE Rapid Connect Solution Benefits at a Glance

 

Edge Rapid Connect

Generate Revenue Faster

Completely eliminate splicing for a typical four-trunk deployment and reduce project time from six weeks to two weeks – enabling the data center to generate revenue faster.
 
Edge Rapid Connect

Minimize Risk

Reduce the risk of not having enough splice technicians and working with sharp tools to prep fiber for splicing.

 

 

Edge Rapid Connect

Reduce Pathway Costs

Pull three 3,456-fiber trunk cables through a four-inch conduit to reduce the amount of conduit that needs to be placed in the ground – increasing the ROI on pathway investment.
 
Edge Rapid Connect

Simplify Cable Management

The Corning Consolidator Frame can cross-connect up to 34,560 fibers in one centralized location.
