CPI and Corning Cable Systems Collaborate on Fiber Solution

January 25, 2008

The new CPI Fiber Management for TeraFrame™ Family of Cabinets drew a lot of attention at this month’s BICSI conference and for good reason – this new solution addresses the challenges of managing large volumes of optical fiber cables and patch cords in high-density storage area networks (SANs).

By combining CPI's expertise in cable management and cabinet systems and Corning Cable System's expertise in fiber optic infrastructures an innovative solution was developed for your data center, designed specifically to integrate with the Cisco MDS 9513 and the Brocade 48000.


FIBER_MGMT_BROCDCAB_RGB72.jpg   The new CPI Fiber Management System, used with CPI’s TeraFrame™ Family of Cabinets supports Corning Cable Systems Zero-U System, a complement to Plug & Play™ Universal Systems, which includes pre-terminated optical fiber trunk cables, modules and harness assemblies. Together these solutions greatly reduce the amount of space occupied by cabling in cabinets, accelerate the initial speed of deployment for high-density SANs, improve air circulation and simplify future moves, adds and changes (MACs). In addition, these solutions can eliminate more than 70% of bulk cabling in the SAN director’s cabinet vertical managers and director backplane.


For additional information on the new CPI Fiber Management product, download Corning’s Zero-U System for use with Chatsworth Products, Inc. Cabinet System document. For additional information on the alliance between CPI and Corning visit the Corning LANscape® Solutions Alliance Program web page.
