R&M unveils highest-density fiber cable management solution


R&M announces the introduction of Netscale, claimed to be the world’s highest-density fiber cable management solution, and the first to feature integrated intelligent infrastructure management functionality.

With growing Datacenter infrastructural and operations demand, the new rollout is reported to boast up to 67% higher density than its competitors and promises to eliminate a host of cable management problems that plague data centers today.

The Swiss communication technology major has tailored its new solution with fiber optic solution comprising next-gen features which saves considerable amounts of – costly – space at large companies in the financial, pharma, colocation and telecom segments as well as edge data centers.  The solution offers a lower cost per port than existing platforms, and provides a flexible upgrade path to accommodate needs for many years to come.

Currently available high-density fiber solutions for data centers generally offer up to 72 LC duplex ports per rack unit and pose great difficulties for management.

  • Integrateing a next-gen R&MinteliPhy technology, Netscale delivers a density of up to 80 RFID-monitored LC duplex or MTP ports, and even 120 standard LC duplex or MTP ports per rack unit.
  • The innovative rear-cabling manager makes it truly easy to manage connections, alleviating risk during MACs and migrations.
  • Modular components and best-in-class network scalability makes it possible to accommodate the unique infrastructure requirements of each data center.
  • In most edge data center cases, Netscale’s unmatched density makes it possible to consolidate all servers of the PoP into a 1U housing, leaving more space for switching/routing gear.
  • The high density makes it possible for colocation providers to minimize meet-me-room footprint thereby freeing up space for more racks and switches.
  • While the typical 10 to 15 cm draw-out-length of trays places stress on patch cords, Netscale’s industry minimum of 5.5 cm and its innovative approach to slack-management mitigate cabling damage and thus reduces the risk of downtime.
  • R&MinteliPhy automates the tracking of network cabling, thereby ensuring the data integrity of the documentation.

The Automated Infrastructure Management (AIM) solution can be retrofitted on Netscale which allows customers to gradually extend the features and functionality of their investment while managing costs. With the Netscale patch cord, the solution also features R&M’s new LC quick release connector in combination with the smallest available diameter uniboot patch cord and cable access from the rear and front, writes in a release.

“As an innovative company with challenging data center projects, we are dependent on scalable fiber solutions that can be deployed in confined spaces.  We have beta tested Netscale because it supports us in the fully automated operation of our cloud”, said DrMarius FeldmannCOOCloud&Heat.

Additionally, the new solution sets the bar for the industry and finally promises IT managers relief from the data center cabling challenges they have faced for years.
