Siemon highlights WheelHouse cabling solutions
New copper and fibre optic cabling designs showcased at DatacenterDynamics Converged MEA
Siemon showcased its WheelHouse portfolio of data centre solutions at the 2016 DatacenterDynamics Converged Middle East & Africa conference and expo that recently took place at the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel in Dubai.
The key focus at the Siemon stand was the company’s copper and fibre optic cabling offering designed to help clients save valuable space in their data centre, minimise installation time and increase accessibility without sacrificing density, the company says.
Amongst the products on display was an ultra-high-density plug and play fibre system that supports up to 40/100Gb/s applications. LightStack has the capacity to house up to 144 LC fibres or 864 MTP fibres within 1U and 576 LC fibres or 3456 MTP fibres within 4U and provides best in class cable management and user-friendly accessibility. Also on show was the LC BladePatch jumper, which features a push-pull latch to enhance installation and removal in high density applications.
Network monitoring and management was addressed with MapIT G2 automated infrastructure management. MapIT G2 is designed to deliver real-time tracking and management of the network-wide physical layer activity and IT assets to enhance network performance, security and control.
During the event Siemon technical experts were at hand to advise and guide IT network and data centre professionals through the process of selecting and designing a high performance infrastructure upon which their entire data centre can rely on today and in the future.
“We have witnessed a strong growth in the number of new data centres emerging across the Middle East and Africa region in the recent past,” comments Prem Rodrigues, director sales and marketing for the Middle East and India at Siemon. “Whether cloud, colocation or enterprise data centres, all facilities require a cabling infrastructure capable of delivering reliable, low-latency, high bandwidth connections to meet the increased demands for higher data throughput, processing, analysis and storage - much of which is driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data. Our advanced data centre solutions are very well aligned with these developments.”
DatacenterDynamics Converged Middle East & Africa conference and expo attracts a large international audience of senior ICT and data centre professionals bringing together carriers, ISPs, data centre operators, Cloud Service Providers, CDNs, regional governments and enterprises. According to the organisers, this year’s event aimed at increasing the discussions about the future of cloud and data centre infrastructure across the region and to address the needs of the digital economy in the Middle East and African market.
“We are delighted with the response that our solutions set received at the event which highlights the demand for products that address critical aspects in today’s data centres. This includes demand for high performance infrastructure, density and ease of installation. As a company, we have been at the forefront in providing cabling systems that deliver a scalable foundation to help future-proof these mission critical facilities”, concludes Rodrigues.
