ODF solutions for reliable low-latency connections with reduced network cost
Meet-me rooms (MMR) are a critical point for uninterrupted Internet exchange and ensure smooth transmission of data between tenants and carriers. Colocation customers benefit by establishing a direct connection with their partners and service providers. In comparison with the total colocation facility, MMRs are small but a very important space as this is where cloud providers, telecommunications carriers, etc. converge to interconnect or cross-connect with one another and exchange data before distribution of services to other areas of the building.
Inside the MMR, R&M enables increased fiber density and IoT-driven Smart Networks while protecting your customer’s critical cross connects. Our high-density ODFs, modular fiber panels and preterminated fiber solutions maximize your patching capacity without sacrificing scalability or ease of use. As the fiber density and complexity in the MMR grow, our Smart Networks solutions let you track and document every connection in real time. Our modular fiber raceway solutions ensure the fiber network remains contained, orderly and protected.
In the MMR, ultra-high-density solutions are best for connections between colocation sites. When managing higher-fiber-counts and numerous patch panels is a priority, the Netscale 72 solutions are the appropriate choice. Unique design allows for balance between effective cable management and unprecedented finger access. R&M’s patented Type S polarity solution reduces risk by ensuring the correct fiber polarity throughout the entire system. Netscale 72 offers the best of high-density fiber management with field-termination capabilities or simplified connections to the cage with MPO-to-LC harness solutions.
High-density ODFs and field termination are still the most popular choice and are ideal for lower-fiber-count cables. For these cases, the ODF SCM solution is the best bet. It allows efficient cross-connects and interconnects through LC-to-LC patch cords and supports splice, splitter and WDM inserts inside the MMR.
