CommScope introduces Propel
CommScope has introduced Propel, a high-speed fiber platform designed to help data center managers respond to the exponential increase in demand they are experiencing for computing power. This new technology facilitates the migration to Terabit speeds, by providing reliable connectivity and a robust network infrastructure that aligns with rapidly emerging data center applications, enabling faster, more efficient access to data.
Propel facilitates the modernization of the network. Propel introduces 16-fiber cabling to support the fast growing 400 Gbps and 800 Gbps speeds, as well as emerging 1.6 Tbps speeds. This enables leading edge network architectures to deliver greater capacity to end devices with increased efficiency, saving time and energy while also greatly reducing the cost per gigabit.
Propel modules are available in four different interchangeable sizes with matching cable constructions to easily scale applications with system architectures. All components are ultra-low loss for optimal performance and have a specific QR code for performance tracking and online instructions.
Backed by CommScope’s industry leading SYSTIMAX Application Assurance Warranty, Propel encompasses the industry’s first Multifiber Push-On (MPO) 16-fiber platform and includes the following:
Panels: 1U, 2U, 4U
Adapter Packs: LC, SN, MPO
Modules: Singlemode and Multi-mode: 8,12, 16 and 24 fibers
Cable Assemblies: MPO8, 12, 16 and 24; SN and LC Uniboot
“CommScope’s Propel solution was engineered to ensure data center operators can maximize existing infrastructure investments while preparing for future applications in a smarter and more efficient manner.” said John Schmidt, senior vice president, CommScope’s building and data center business.
