Following the Fibre Channel industry’s best practices when designing and installing the fiber optic infrastructure design for Brocade’s latest generation of hardware will help ensure optimal performance and reliability of your SAN network.
Is it possible to design a structured cabling infrastructure to support a life cycle of 10 to 15 years without having to reconfigure the physical layer infrastructure? It is possible, but there are several factors to consider.
When designing a structured cabling plant to run speeds of 40/100G for Ethernet and 32GFC and 128GFCp for Fibre Channel, one must review the latest published standards that apply. This paper shows you how.
When considering the impact hyperconvergence is having on cabling, it’s crucial to understand how data center topologies are evolving, and how spine-and-leaf cabling is replacing traditional three-layer design.
Many entities are awaiting the next big jumps in speed: 400 Gb/s Ethernet and 128 Gb/s Fibre Channel. Supporting these speeds requires critical fiber cabling considerations. A planned and properly implemented structured cabling solution can help.
Increasing data speeds have created challenges for data center managers designing fiber cabling topologies. One challenge in particular has been polarity, also known as light path. The goal of a multi-path™ system is to simplify the cabling migration process.
The rise of cryptocurrency has led to some new digital processes that require new computing needs. When this happens, cabling and data center infrastructures are always affected. This paper delves into the implications of the new computing processes involved in cryptomining.
Emerging data rates proposed by standards updates, as well as distance considerations and loss budgets in current and future high-speed links, create challenges that every designer needs to understand.
Historically, network designers considered active hardware to be the most critical network components. Consequently, the fiber optic cabling was an afterthought. This is a mistake designers can no longer afford to make.
The existing crop of standards commonly referenced in RFP documents has both minor and sometimes serious conflicts that leave designs and designers in jeopardy. Find out how you can avoid these conflicts.
Essentially, port replication™ is “mirroring” the ports of active fiber optic hardware in a passive component (fiber patch panel). Learn what port replication is and the benefits you can receive from utilizing it in your data center.
With the ratification of new industry standards and increased demands on data center throughput, 40/100G Ethernet will be an integral component of the next generation data center. Find out how to achieve 40/100G in this paper.
In today's high-density data center, a well-designed structured cabling system increases uptime, scalability and return on investment while simultaneously decreasing your technology footprint and operating expenses.
CABLExpress offers some simple tips for cable management with copper cabling.
We take a look back at what was happening in data center infrastructure cabling and a look at the future of cabling in the data center.
How to tell the difference between a male and female MPO (or MTP®) connector.
JT reminisces about the good old days, after a customer sent an old bus & tag cable tester to the team. This bus & tag cable ran a speed of 4.5Mbps. Currently OM4 fiber is running 100G Ethernet with higher speeds just around the corner. Also, a sneak peek into the future!
Reduced diameter 28AWG CAT6 copper patch cables can reduce congestion and improve cable management challenges.
JT has some fun getting pulled by a snowmobile machine by Rick Dallmann to demonstrate the importance of having a fiber optic cable assembly that can withstand the rigors of installation. It is critical for a fiber assembly to perform well after installation.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – CABLExpress, a division of CXtec, announced its new zClip™ harness solution to cable the IBM z15™ system. The zClip’s patent-pending design quickly connects to the spine of the z15 system, allowing precise positioning of CABLExpress Skinny-Trunk® harness fiber cable assemblies.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – CABLExpress, a division of CXtec, announced its new Easy Access (EA) Series patch panels. The EA Series patch panels are designed with no top or side coverings to get in the way when accessing fiber ports. They were developed to eliminate unnecessary obstructions and allow data center managers to easily access patch cabling in the front and rear of the patch panels.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – CABLExpress, a division of CXtec, announced its new standard maximum singlemode MTP connector insertion loss to 0.3 dB per mated pair. This benchmark is engineered to support the low channel insertion loss requirement of the QSFP-100G-PSM4 specification, or short-reach singlemode, which is set at approximately 3.3dB.
