TE Connectivity Launches Core Vertical Switch Management Platform
GREENSBORO, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
TE Connectivity (News - Alert) (TE) today announced a new application-driven solution
for the unique cabling challenges presented by vertical blade-based core
switch systems. The core Vertical Switch Management (VSM) platform
routes cables directly from switch ports to patch panels above the
switch, providing space, access, and maintenance benefits to
high-density core switches with vertical blade configurations.
In the new core VSM platform, all patch cables, whether fiber or copper,
are managed vertically, and just one length of patch cord is required to
patch within a frame, simplifying the build process and ongoing
logistics. The design consists of a cable management guide that fits
above the switch, and copper or fiber modules that provide connections
for blades of either media. The complete core VSM platform can be
installed within an 800mm wide cabinet, saving valuable white space in
the data center.
"The core VSM solution removes the need for cable management at the side
of the frame, bringing a number of benefits to the data center. Space
savings, cost reductions, and enhanced efficiency are realized by
ensuring clear representation of the switch ports and ease of access,"
says Ken Hall, national account manager within TE's Enterprise Networks
business. "These efficiencies help reduce Day 2 activities. Plus,
inventory is reduced by only having to stock a single patch cord length.
It all adds up to a powerful return on investment."
Main features and benefits of the core VSM solution include:
Cabling routes directly from switch to ports to patch panels above the
Logical representation of the switch ports and ease of access
Single patch cord lengths
Simplified blade changeover
Supports both copper and fiber cabling and facilitates the migration
from one to the other
Compatibility with the Universal Connectivity Platform- TE's advanced
modular cabling solution
