Data growth is boosting demand for efficiencies in the areas of energy management and operational efficiencies. Migration to 100, 200, and 400 Gbit per sec are ongoing. This is promoting the need for more cabling, ultra-high-density solutions, and Datacentre Infrastructure Management to optimise capacity and space usage.
Future innovation includes intuitive user interfaces and the use of artificial intelligence AI to keep infrastructure manageable. The trend towards using more fiber is increasing, with 40 and 100 Gbit per sec requiring eight fibers in parallel pairs and higher speeds requiring 16 or 32 pairs. Highly flexible two-layer leaf-spine architectures are replacing traditional three-tier architecture to avoid congestion, reduce latencies, and support high availability.

Simultaneously, we see enterprise datacentres increasingly moving into the cloud. This is bringing new demand and complexity in areas including security, rollout speeds, monitoring, data availability, expertise, planning reliability, and customisation.
An example of a global customer is Iron Mountain Datacentres, which operates a global colocation platform that enables customers to build tailored, sustainable, carrier and cloud-neutral data solutions. The company leads the datacentre industry in highly regulated compliance, environmental sustainability, physical security and business continuity.

The company was looking for a new optical distribution frame solution to centralise fiber optic management in a single cabinet that could hold everything. R&M delivered a configuration of the Optical Distribution Frames with a capacity of 2,304 optical fibers. Each of these consists of
inteliPhy net 3.0 incorporates simplifying datacentre design, planning, management with a centralised dashboard
ODF SCM modules and cable management, LC Duplex connectivity, Mixed splice and breakout cabling, designed to suit customer requirements, glass doors that provide a view of the entire fiber optic and patch management.
R&M introduced inteliPhy net 3.0 software for Datacentre Infrastructure Management.
R&M recently introduced inteliPhy net 3.0, software for Datacentre Infrastructure Management. This latest iteration incorporates a host of new features focused on further simplifying datacentre design, planning, and management via a single, centralised dashboard.
In addition to extensive monitoring functions, inteliPhy 3.0 enables users to create their own metamodels which can represent a pre-configured device with various plug-in cards or a completely assembled and wired cabinet. To aid datacentre planning and administration, this solution offers comprehensive work order management capabilities.
With the new 48 port panel, fiber optic and copper cabling can be accommodated within a single height unit saving half the rack space traditionally required
Another innovative datacentre solution that R&M introduce to the region this year has been our revolutionary mixed-use Netscale 48 patch panel. With this new 48 port panel, both fiber optic and copper cabling can be accommodated within a single height unit, effectively saving up to half the rack space traditionally required for a combination of both media.
Datacentres are moving into the cloud, which is adding demand and complexity into security, rollout speeds, monitoring, data availability, expertise.
