Corning Cable Systems LLC and Chatsworth Products Inc. (CPI) are collaborating to simplify the data centre design and installation process.

The product set incorporates Corning’s new Zero-U System into CPI’s TeraFrame line of cabinets for cable management and ease of connectivity in high-density storage area networks (SANs).

The two companies plan to introduce a product set that manages optical fiber trunk cables, harnesses and modules within the data centre cabinets that house SAN electronics.

In traditional installations, the jumper cables needed to make port connections are routed along the side of the cabinet, which can block airflow and make it difficult to administer moves, adds and changes (MACs).
