Pre-terminated solutions are suited to data center environments
We can see that time is becoming an important factor in today’s ICT decisions. Pre-terminated solutions are starting to be implemented more regularly now, as these offer a number of advantages for a variety of different network installations, and are particularly suited to data center environments for reasons of time saving, space saving, cooling and security.
It is, however, important to recognize that to reap all the benefits that a preterminated solution offers, there is a serious amount of planning that needs to be carried out prior to installation. Attention to detail in the site survey process and the ensuing plan is critical or these benefits will be lost or additional costs will be incurred.
It can be seen that green data centers have become a necessary trend among organizations as they are looking for ways to reduce corporate energy consumption and be more environmentally responsible. Data centers are an integral part of many technology-intensive businesses. The appetite of data centers for energy, has made costs associated with data centers a significant concern.
Today, organizations are implementing more digital themes and to tackle this you require a stronger network infrastructure. Therefore there are conscious efforts being undertaken to improve the energy efficiency of data centers. Energy efficiency in data centers is a growing concern that all the organizations share.
Organizations should look at their requirement before they decide on the budget. We have seen on many occasions that price has decided the solution a customer has received. To enable to customer to get an optimum and future proof network they must first look into the requirement. Layer 1 infrastructure for the network is constantly overlooked even though it is a system that will serve the longest duration of time.
Future proofing a network is essential to any business because of the rapid expansions and growth of requirements, so it’s best to look at the future when implementing today’s solutions. It is important to ensure that if at any time there is an upgrade to be done then the previous layout will allow it.
