3M has signed a business alliance with FiberZone Networks, a provider of Automated Fiber Management products, to bring its AFM system to the data centre market.

“From always-on movies to data storage in the cloud to corporate and consumer digital archives, managing the data infrastructure has become a critical discipline for today’s enterprises,” the two companies said in a release.

According to 3M, the AFM system from FiberZone Networks enables remote provisioning of a data centre’s fiber network, avoiding the operational costs and downtime associated with manual operation of traditional patch panels.
