10 Gigabit Copper Cabling, Adding Wings to Data Centers

Throughout the development of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, it is closely related to the rapid increase in business needs of enterprises. Under the background of the continuous emergence of multimedia applications such as IP-based new Internet telephony, video streaming, live broadcasting and monitoring. With the rapid development of the data center market and the evolution of related technologies such as virtualization and cloud computing, high-density data services have become a new trend, and the wide application of 10 Gigabit copper cables has a solid foundation.

However, in contrast, despite the annual growth of server and storage capacity by 40% to 70%, its utilization rate is only 15% to 25%; operation and maintenance costs account for 30% of data center costs; 54% of Network failures are caused by human factors; a new application takes 60-80 days to implement and deploy; 50% of traditional data centers will be abandoned within 24 months. Faced with ever-increasing data pressures, IT managers face many challenges. The importance of ensuring optimum speed, reliability and cost-effectiveness is increasingly prominent.

Build a More Efficient, Smarter Data Center

well known. Data centers are the main application places for 10G copper cables. 50% of people are most concerned about how to get better management, 20% of people care about servers, and 10% to 15% of people are concerned about energy consumption.

In addition, although the investment in cabling only accounts for 5% of the total investment in the data center, 50% of network failures are caused by cabling problems.

Therefore, how to rely on innovative integrated cabling system products to solve various problems in the overall cost, availability and flexibility of enterprise data centers. become a key consideration in data center solutions.

Specific to the data center integrated cabling solution, QSFPTEK recommends a solution of 10 Gigabit optical cable + 10 Gigabit copper cable on the backbone wiring from the main distribution area (MDA) to the horizontal distribution area (HDA).

Among them, as the connection core Switched networks and backbone systems of converged switched networks. It is recommended to use the Cat6A system to support network transmission. In order to provide scalable transmission bandwidth, leave enough space for future upgrades, and ensure maximum smooth upgrades.

In the main distribution area and the horizontal distribution area, high-density solutions are recommended, such as high-density MPO pre-terminated optical cables or high-density copper cables.

The latter’s patch panel can obtain 48 RJ45 ports in a 1U space, and with QSFPTEK 10GBASE-T transceivers, it greatly saves the space occupied by the cabinet, while maintaining port operability and identification functions.

It should be reminded here that try to separate the optical cables and copper cable distribution frames in different cabinets for easy management.

The horizontal wiring part mostly adopts a star topology. The connection port of each equipment wiring area is connected to the horizontal wiring area or the main wiring area is cross-connected to the wiring module through a horizontal cable.

To meet business needs, the planning and design of the horizontal cabling system are also as easy to maintain as possible to avoid future re-installation of equipment.

Therefore, it is recommended to use a 10 Gigabit copper cable or optical fiber solution. In addition, this solution can realize the mixed use of optical fiber and copper cable on one patch panel, and adopts modular design information port, which can be applied in horizontal distribution area and equipment area, helping users to flexibly combine modules and brackets, Avoid wasting port resources.

Optimize Data Transmission, Product Guarantee

Integrated cabling system has always been one of QSFPTEK’s core businesses, including comprehensive cabling solutions such as 10G optical cable, 10G copper cable, high-density MPO, and high-density copper cable. The 10 Gigabit copper cable system products, including Cat6A copper cables, 10GBASE-T, are designed to support 10G and faster Ethernet, providing long-term reliable protection for the infrastructure.

QSFPTEK believes that, considering the importance of 10 Gigabit copper cables in data center network connections, product design should be user-centric, safe and stable, powerful, easy to use, and advocate super applicability, so that users can enjoy intelligent technology provide assurance.

In fact, the final planning and design point is to realize the simplicity, flexibility, scalability, modularity and practicality of the system. Experience has shown that having enough room for expansion is crucial for the installation of additional equipment and service facilities in the later stages. All this means that 10G copper cables will have a broader market space in the future.
