Data Center Systems Delivers
Critical Cable Infrastructure
The investments you make for higher performing servers, director-class switches, storage won’t help you if your network can’t keep up. The quality of the connecting fiber cable infrastructure must keep pace and provide no margin for error. DCS technicians, with decades of experience, custom manufacture fiber cables for each project.
Intelligent Cable Connectivity
Quality fiber cables are just the first step. They provide reliable communication, but they do not deliver agility. Unlike endpoint connectivity, data center connectivity is always evolving during Moves, Adds, and Changes (MACs). Design and layout are critical. True Structured Connectivity delivers agility.
Our True Structured Connectivity Methodology
What is True Structured Connectivity?
True Structured Connectivity Solutions allows you to represent all ports on all devices on the front patch panel at the Central Patching Location. This approach facilitates moves, adds and changes reducing, or even eliminating human error, and more importantly it lowers link loss concerns by reducing the number of connection points.
True Structured Connectivity Benefits
A DCS True Structured Connectivity design results in avoidance of handling active equipment during a move, add, or change. It also significantly reduces the time it takes to move new equipment into production because of our proactive strategy to scaling infrastructure and its connectivity.
Solutions for Brocade and Cisco
Solutions for Brocade DCX Director Class Switches
Our 10U Brocade Patch Panel has eight vertical blade slots to provide up to 512 fiber channel ports. These ports mirror the blade slots and port count on the DCX Director. For each new port module the Brocade DCX accepts, DCS develops a patch panel coupler strip that matches the port count on that blade.
Solutions for Cisco 9710/9513 Directors
DCS design for the 10U Director Patch Panels for Cisco Director Class Switches gives a visual of your director at the central patching facility. When you look at the Director Patch Panel, each slot and port number is the same as the slot and port number on the actual director.
Simplifying Data Center Cable Infrastructure
IT is rapidly modernizing the Data Center, part of that modernization effort has to be the cable infrastructure. DCS’ True Structure Cabling provides the low link loss reliability that higher bandwidth and port count architectures need while increasing IT ability to respond to organizational changes that impact the data center.
