Our EDGE8® solutions were the industry’s first preterminated optical cabling systems specifically designed for the data center environment, and the value that EDGE provides to the industry continues to be proven. Density, network uptime, speed, simplicity and a clear migration path to meet future requirements … EDGE addresses it all. However, 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 the motivation behind EDGE8® solutions. All the value of our original EDGE solutions, with the added superior network scalability, improved link performance and 100 percent 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
- Technology adoption due to 100 percent 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.
