TE Connectivity (TE) has been selected to support Telx’s new data center campus in New York City.
Telx provides global interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and 100 percent uptime SLA data center facilities.
TE Connectivity’s high-density data center solutions help alleviate equipment congestion and provide the means to install cable faster and more efficiently. Data center providers can install cable faster and more efficiently and help customers meet their immediate and long-term revenue objectives.
Telx chose TE’s portfolio of high-density fiber products including the NG4access ODF, Rapid Fiber panel, FiberGuide raceway, MPO and microcable solutions. The NG4access ODF handles the carrier connections on each end of the data center line-up.
When considering both current and projected fiber density, the NG4access ODF was a clear choice for Telx. The optical distribution frame holds 3,456 LC fiber terminations and features ample trough space and protection for cables and connectors.
TE’s Rapid Fiber panel facilitates faster service connections between the active equipment and the NG4access ODF cross-connect line-up. Utilizing TE’s unique RapidReel fiber cable spool, the Rapid Fiber panel pays out dual 12-fiber 3 mm microcable to the desired length.
The MPO connector architecture helps Telx route and install new equipment faster and more efficiently, while simplifying their overall cable inventory requirements.
TE’s FiberGuide raceway system was installed throughout the data center to protect and route the fiber optic patch cords and intrafacility cable (IFC) to and from the NG4access ODF, Rapid Fiber panels, and active equipment racks.
This raceway ensures a two-inch minimum of bend radius is maintained throughout the system – ensuring uninterrupted, optimal fiber performance.
The combination of TE’s microcable and MPO connector solutions help minimize cable congestion in the FiberGuide raceway and ladder racking systems, and reduce the need for slack cable storage.
