The new MRJ21 XG system from TE Enterprise Networks is a pre-terminated plug and play 10Gb/s copper cabling solution designed to support agility and save valuable floor space in the most demanding of data centre infrastructures.
This pre-terminated solution supports 10Gb/s throughput in all architectures where copper cabling is required and enables the data centre manager to quickly add capacity or services.
The MRJ21 XG system comprises pre-terminated trunks, panels and modular connectivity and is compatible with TE’s Universal Connectivity Platform (UCP). The unique MRJ21 XG trunk cable typically occupies 5 per cent less volume than most other zone cabling solutions and up to 37 per cent less than traditional twisted pair systems. This lower cable volume, when deployed in the data centre, can reduce containment costs, and presents less of an obstruction to the airflow entering and exiting the servers and switches. The result is a positive impact on both initial CAPEX and ongoing OPEX expenditure.
The system has the versatility to be deployed in traditional cross-connect architectures, office LAN environments and the latest server/core-switch configurations. In addition, it can support all data rates up to and including 10Gb/s, giving future proofed connectivity to environments where 1Gb/s servers may be substituted for 10Gb/s at a later date.
The unique MRJ21 XG plug design supports four separate 10Gb/s transmission channels over a single trunk cable, giving guaranteed throughput performance and quick installation. Direct connection to UCP compatible cassettes allows up to 32 RJ-45 ports (eight per cassette) to be presented in a 19 inch panel.
