Reduce the complexity and connectivity costs for your data center fabric.
As networks grew to accommodate bandwidth demands, they also shifted from classical 3-tier network architectures to a flatter and wider spine-and-leaf topology. The fully meshed connectivity approach typical of spine-and-leaf architecture yields predictable high-speed network performance and reliability.
Using EDGE™ 4X4 Mesh Modules as a tool to build next-generation networks can reduce the complexity and connectivity costs for your data center fabric.
EDGE™ 4x4 Mesh Modules in the data center are used to break out four-channel parallel ports to create a duplex fabric, eliminating the need to break the MTP® into LC connectivity. The mesh modules contain four 8-fiber MTP's in the rear for mating to backbone trunks and break out to four 8-fiber MTP's in the front for connectivity to the electronics. Take advantage of higher port densities per switch with lower power consumption and a lower cost per 10G port, and improve the ability to create port diversification when using QSFP+ transceivers for 1-G applications.
