Pre-terminated copper cabling for data centre managers

TE Connectivity : 16 October, 2013  (New Product)
Pre-terminated cassette-based Sigma-Link copper cabling system from TE Connectivity (TE) has been upgraded to be compatible with the company’s Quick-Fit profile, making it compatible with TE’s Universal Connectivity Platform (UCP). As a result, Sigma-Link Quick-Fit housings can now be 'mixed and matched' with other copper or fibre connectivity in the same rack – and even in the same patch panel – providing designers and managers with more flexibility for future upgrades and reconfigurations.
Pre-terminated copper cabling for data centre managers
Sigma-Link can be deployed in any application that requires copper twisted-pair cabling and can be used to connect users to switches, switches to other switches, or for switch-to-server links. With its pre-terminated copper cable trunks, the Sigma-Link system enables the IT or data centre manager to quickly deploy a cabling channel.
Each pre-terminated assembly is factory tested, and the links are available in performance levels from Category 6 through to Category 7A, with a variety of configuration types and shielding constructions. The Sigma-Link system supports up to 10GbE (10 Gigabit Ethernet) transmission and beyond, allowing very high bandwidth applications and protocols to be supported in the future.
The UCP system is designed to deliver rack efficiency and supports multiple media deployment. It comprises a versatile range of components that include one common 19-inch patch panel (either angled or flat), subfloor and overhead panel mounts, as well as Xtra-U panels for side mounting. All panels can be used to accommodate both copper and fiber cassettes/modules, and the units can be installed within or outside the traditional 19-inch envelope.
Sigma-Link Quick-Fit supports business critical applications with guaranteed quality, fast deployment, and high-bandwidth delivery. The pre-terminated Sigma-Link system arrives at the installation location ready to work, with guaranteed levels of performance and quality. This removes working time for termination and eliminates the need to guess what the final transmission performance of a link will be. As a housing-to-housing system, it can be quickly located into UCP panels from TE, taking minimal time to deploy and configure a new channel in the network. Housing-to-plug and housing-to-jack systems are also available.
Available as a Class FA (Category 7A) system, Sigma-Link supports future “bandwidth-hungry” applications. Offering Class FA doubles the bandwidth capacity compared to what is being offered by class EA channels, giving a total of 1000MHz.
