Leading international manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, HUBER+SUHNER, today announced the launch of IANOS®: a new, class-leading, future-proofed fiber management system, at Data Centre World in London.
The new IANOS® concept facilitates Base-2, 8, 12 and 24 pre-terminated cable systems for best in class density, speed of installation, handling and scalability, all of which are key factors in future-proofing data centers.
With future-proofing of data centers becoming nothing short of essential, IANOS® is a unique fiber management system designed to accommodate a quick, simple and inevitable upgrade path from 10G serial to 40G and 100G parallel optics.
“This is undoubtedly our most advanced and adaptable fiber management system to date,” said Urs Ryffel, COO Fiber Optics at HUBER+SUHNER. “We chose the name IANOS® – derived from Janus, the Roman deity that looks both to the past and the future – as it reflects the system’s ability to both improve existing data centers when retrofitted and provides the most effective, efficient solution possible for new builds.”
By using IANOS®, HUBER+SUHNER customers are able to occupy as little space as possible with passive equipment and deploy more means of generating revenue in their data centers. IANOS® offers the highest possible packing density without compromising handling.
The highly scalable nature of IANOS® allows customers to ‘pay as they grow’, adding modular components as and when they are required. Modules of different application, sizes and connectivity types can be mixed and matched, while likelihood of human error is reduced thanks to colour coding of components and universal adaptors.
“We have chosen Data Centre World as the launch platform for our new solution which will become the focal point of our growing data center portfolio,” said Ryffel. “As the world’s largest gathering of key players in the data center field, this is the perfect stage. We are very excited to showcase it and demonstrate what it has to offer to our customers.”
The Switzerland-based company unveiled IANOS® as part of its building blocks exhibition at stand N75 – a wide portfolio of the components needed to create a data center that will stand the test of time.
Data Centre World visitors can view IANOS® and other HUBER+SUHNER products at stand N75, ExCeL, London, on the 12th and 13th April 2016.
