R&M Netscale

R&M will be present at Data Centre World Asia, held on October 12-13 2016 in Singapore, at stand D5. Dr. Thomas Wellinger, Market Manager Data Center R&M, will host two sessions on Energy Efficiency and Cost Management & DCIM. The first is to be held on October 12 (11:10) and is entitled “The Future of the Data Center Physical Layer - Delivering the highest 10/40/100GbE fiber density and documenting it automatically”. The second - : “Data Center Growth – Got high density and automated infrastructure management?” - is to be held on October (13:45).

R&M will also present Netscale, the world’s highest-density fiber cable management solution, and the first to feature integrated intelligent infrastructure management functionality. This features automated connectivity tracking and innovative tray design, delivering the highest port density for 10/40/100G Ethernet. Netscale boasts up to 67% higher density than its competitors and promises to eliminate a host of cable management problems that plague data centers today.

Rapid growth in the volume of data being stored and managed in data centers in recent years has raised a clear need to realize maximum port density in the smallest space possible. However, increasing density often results in unmanageable cabling, making Moves, Adds and Changes (MACs), cable tracking and fault-finding impossible. Currently available high-density fiber solutions for data centers generally offer up to 72 LC duplex ports per rack unit and pose great difficulties for management. Thanks to R&MinteliPhy technology, Netscale delivers a density of up to 80 RFID-monitored LC duplex or MTP ports, and even 120 standard LC duplex or MTP ports per rack unit. Innovative rear-cabling management makes it easy to manage connections, alleviating risk during MACs and migrations. Modular components and best-in-class network scalability makes it possible to accommodate the unique infrastructure requirements of each data center.

Save space and reduce cost per port

In edge data centers, Netscale’s unmatched density makes it possible to consolidate all PoP servers into 1U housing, leaving more space for switching/routing gear. The high density allows colocation providers to minimize meet-me-room footprint, freeing up space for more racks and switches. While the typical 10 to 15 cm draw-out-length of trays places stress on patch cords, Netscale's 5.5 cm industry minimum and innovative approach to slack-management mitigate cabling damage, reducing risk of downtime.

R&MinteliPhy automates the tracking of network cabling, thereby ensuring the data integrity of the documentation. This Automated Infrastructure Management (AIM) solution can be retrofitted on Netscale which allows customers to gradually extend the features and functionality of their investment while managing costs. With the Netscale patch cord, the solution also features R&M’s new LC quick release connector in combination with the smallest available diameter uniboot patch cord and cable access from the rear and front.
