ADC Telecommunications Inc. released a portfolio of data center-grade infrastructure products designed to meet the rigorous guidelines of data center design set forth by standards such as TIA-942.

The portfolio includes the TrueNet and CopperTen structured cabling systems, advanced fiber management and high-density fiber terminations.

“The data center is a key resource,” the company said. “Many organizations simply shut down when employees and customers are unable to access the servers, storage systems, and networking devices that reside there.

“Literally, millions of dollars can be lost in a single hour of down time for some businesses, such as large banks, airlines, package shippers, and online brokerages. Indeed, 70% of network downtime can be attributed to physical layer problems. Specifically, cabling faults and connection failures.

Moreover, it added, data centers are the central nervous system of enterprise applications. These critical applications include: Sarbanes-Oxley, Regulations compliance, Voice over IP, security, Wi-Fi, video conferencing, intelligent buildings, RFID, SAN, complex data modeling, real-time data processing, e-mail archival, and business continuity planning.

“The simultaneous use of these applications is driving the explosion for more bandwidth and putting increased pressure on the data center infrastructure,” ADC said. “Given their growing importance, reliability is a key data center attribute, as is having the flexibility to meet future requirements.”
