Modular connectivity, we talk about it all the time – but what is it? A modular connectivity solution, by definition, is a rack-mounted housing or chassis that securely holds cassettes or modules of a certain footprint.
Modular connectivity solutions offer a whole host of benefits to data center networks. Fast-to-install and easy-to-use, they provide the flexibility and capacity customers need to be able to scale their infrastructure, ensuring they can meet the bandwidth demands of today and tomorrow, and future-proofing their networks.
There are currently four AFL Hyperscale modular connectivity solutions available and we have made these solutions easier to understand, so you can make more informed decisions about what is right for your requirements.
Our modular connectivity solutions include:
Scale your network with the most flexible, high-density modular connectivity solution available. Consisting of high-capacity housings, easy-to-install cassettes, and high-performance assemblies, the U-Series enables you to scale your network, with fast, easy, plug-and-play installation.
Grow at the pace your business requires with a clear migration path from 40Gb/s to 400Gb/s and beyond and, all the while, have the assurance that your critical infrastructure is built on one of the most reliable, high-performance network solutions in the world.
The U-Series is the ideal high-density connectivity solution for data centers, helping to address the need for ever-increasing bandwidth posed by the Internet of Things (IoT), implementation of 5G, and the continued growth of cloud computing.
Maximize floor space with a 260mm shallow-depth, all front-access, cassette-based solution. The H-Series by AFL Hyperscale has been developed for data center and telecom networks to effectively and efficiently manage interconnections in the data center physical layer.
Comprising an easy-to-install, shallow-depth housing and front-access only cassettes, the H-Series can handle large volumes of data in a small footprint.
With a variety of flexible network connectivity options, high-performance, high-density networks can scale faster than ever.
Practical and easy to use for medium and low-density applications. Consisting of a versatile and comprehensive range of fixed and sliding patch panels, flexible wall boxes, and robust, interchangeable cassettes, the L-Series provides the ultimate in flexibility for your network.
Supporting a full array of connectivity types and with multiple cable entry points, the L-Series meets the needs for a variety of applications, where low to medium fiber density are required.
Easy-to-use, high-density, tray-based platform. The ASCEND platform is a modular, high-density, rack-mount solution designed for data centers, central offices, head-ends, and structured cabling networks. Whether supporting incremental growth or a full-scale deployment, our ASCEND solution delivers optimal fiber management in an easy-to-use, scalable platform.
Across high-density, tray-based, shallow-depth, and legacy applications, we have the perfect modular connectivity products and solutions to help you build a next-generation data center network.
