Panduit Corp., a provider of Unified Physical Infrastructure (UPI)-based solutions, will showcase how its products “help organizations become more agile and responsive to customer needs by implementing data center architectures that are optimized for both the logical and physical elements of the network” at next week’s EMC World gathering in Las Vegas.
Panduit will display what it says is the longest-distance Fibre Channel transmission of its kind – 16 gigabit Fibre Channel over 1 kilometer. This demo will feature QLogic’s new 16 gigabit Fibre Channel FlexSuite Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) linked to a SANBlaze VirtuaLUN Target Emulator with Panduit Signature Core multimode fiber cabling and connectivity.
The Signature Core Fiber Optic Cabling System maintains signal integrity beyond that of all other types of multimode fiber, according to Panduit company literature: “This technology provides network architects with the flexibility to deploy less expensive multimode fiber links versus more expensive single-mode links, a savings upwards of $1,000 per link.”
“As data centers evolve to support more service oriented, public and private cloud models, our customers are investing in virtualization technology and fabric-based computing. Signature Core multimode fiber helps provide the flexibility needed to maximize return on these investments,” adds Andrew Caveney, vice president/Global Marketing.
