The rise of connected technologies including 5G, telehealth and autonomous vehicles raises technical limitations such as latency. Edge datacentres have emerged to reduce the distances between end users, their devices, and the IT resources that support them. These edge facilities must support large data volumes at high speeds and they require a greater number of physical connections within a much smaller space.
Implementing high-speed interconnect solutions will support transmission speeds from 10Gbps to 100Gbps, whilst high-capacity fibre designs 144 LC fibres or 864 MTP within a 1U enclosure offer superior port density and provide easy ports access and cable management.
MPO-MTP technology makes it easier, cost-effective, less complex to deploy high-capacity backbone fibre links
As we see the demand for flexibility, scalability, higher bandwidth rise, fibre optic cabling is emerging as the dominant media type for datacentre infrastructure. Fibre application speeds are moving towards 200 Gbps and 400 Gbps, which leads to the adoption of MPO-MTP connectivity.
MPO-MTP technology makes it easier, more cost-effective and less complex to deploy high-capacity backbone fibre links and at the same time, it paves the road from current 10 to future 40, 100 and 400 gigabit Ethernet throughputs.

As today’s high-density datacentres migrate to higher speeds, they require low loss fibre connectivity to support multiple mated connections for flexible patching options over a wide range of distances and configurations while remaining within link loss budgets.
Over the years Siemon has developed an ecosystem of datacentre partners who are all specialists in what they do. Their complementary products and services combine with Siemon’s high-performance IT infrastructure solutions to deliver additional value and support to Siemon customers.
Siemon designed a new cabling architecture and installed high-performance cabling products at SurfSARA
Amongst them are global leaders in datacentre switching, cooling and cloud networking solutions. Siemon also partners with leading datacentre infrastructure management DCIM providers such as Graphical Networks and Maya HTT to help customers effectively manage, monitor, control and document their datacentre.
Siemon designed a new cabling architecture and installed high-performance cabling products at SurfSARA, a collaborative ICT organisation for Dutch education and research based in Amsterdam. The infrastructure comprises of a high-density plug-and-play fibre system that supports high-speed parallel optic applications at 40 and 100 Gbps or duplex applications at 10 and 25 Gbps. Low-loss fibre cabling ensure application support.

Siemon also installed its IT infrastructure solutions at the datacentre of the University of Sussex in the UK. Here, Siemon’s Z-MAX 6A F-UTP solution combines superb performance and unparalleled usability with security and robust noise immunity.
With its WheelHouse product portfolio, Siemon offers a complete range of advanced datacentre solutions to support the enterprise datacentre. Wheelhouse includes Z-MAX category 6A F-UTP, TERA category 7A and category 8.2 high-performance twisted-pair copper cabling systems as well as LightHouse advanced fibre optic cabling solutions which include Base-8 and Base-12 plug and play fibre systems.
High speed interconnect assemblies that support up to 100 Gbps applications are also part of the WheelHouse product range as well as a comprehensive line of datacentre cabinets and racks, power distribution and automated infrastructure management.
As capacity datacentres migrate to higher speeds, they require low loss fibre connectivity to support multiple networks over a range of configurations.
