How much difference can a millimeter make in your data center? A lot!
We recently reduced the diameter of the legs on our Skinny-Trunk fiber optic harnesses to 2mm (left) from 3mm (right). That’s a 33% reduction! While 1 millimeter may not seem like a lot, it adds up with each harness – particularly when multiple harnesses are used in a cabinet:
How can you save even more space in the data center?
Harnesses are already a great way to save space in a data center cabinet – they reduce cabling bulk up to 66%. But you can see that the fiber optic harness with the 2mm legs (top) takes up even less space than the harness with 3mm legs (bottom). Data centers are constantly struggling with space issues, so the less room your cabling infrastructure takes up, the more flexibility you’ll have when making moves, adds and changes to your network.
