ADC KRONE has announced the availability of a complete portfolio of data centre-grade infrastructure solutions. Designed to meet the rigorous guidelines of data centre design set forth by standards such as TIA-942 and the draft prEN 50173-5, ADC KRONE’s data centre product set is led by its flagship TrueNet Structured Cabling System. ADC KRONE say their line of TrueNet components offers data centre owners the best Zero Bit-Error Warranty available. Using high quality physical layer components, like those in the TrueNet portfolio, eliminates network infrastructure problems that leave data centres vulnerable to costly failure or early obsolescence.
The data centre is a key resource. Many organisations 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 percent of network downtime can be attributed to physical layer problems, specifically, cabling faults and connection failures.
Moreover, data centres 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 centre infrastructure. Given their growing importance, reliability is a key data centre attribute, as is having the flexibility to meet future requirements.
“Designing and building a data centre to meet these requirements is not a simple or insignificant task. Organisations such as businesses, schools and universities, government agencies and healthcare enterprises are increasingly pushing the performance envelope,” said Pat O’Brien, president of the global connectivity solutions business unit for ADC. “To address this critical need, ADC KRONE has developed innovative solutions designed to optimise data centres based on our proven experience in providing infrastructure for the world’s most elite class of data networks. Fortune 50 telecommunications providers rely on ADC KRONE technology and innovation to keep their networks running 24×7, 365 days a year, with astonishing availability.”
