May 2007 - Preserving Network Infrastructure Survival, CPI's N-Series TeraFrame™ Network Cabinet

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., May 2007—Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI), a leading manufacturer  that sets the benchmark by providing superior structural support to organize, store and secure IT infrastructure equipment now offers the N-Series TeraFrame™ Network Cabinet to overcome thermal challenges associated with network switches with side-to-side airflow.

Network switches with side-to-side airlfow located in a hot aisle/cold aisle layout run the risk of re-consuming hot exhaust air, causing elevated equipment intake temperatures which ultimately results in equipment failure. CPI's N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet is engineered to solve these thermal challenges by using CPI Passive Cooling™ Solutions to manage high-density switches while maximizing the energy efficiency of the data center. Available in 10 heights and 11 depths, the N-Series TeraFrame offers the most comprehensive choice for supporting network switches inside enclosures, while also presenting advanced cabling solutions for greater cable capacity and management.

When deploying switches with side-to-side airflow, the N-Series TeraFrame can be equipped with CPI's Network Switch Exhaust Duct. The exhaust duct removes hot air by isolating and re-directing it out the back of the cabinet and into the hot aisle, minimizing hot air re-circulation and essentially converting side-to-side airflow into a front-to-rear airflow pattern. By running the entire height of the cabinet, one Network Switch Exhaust Duct can support exhaust from up to three network switches and provides freedom to organize and move equipment as needed. Serving as a complete and cost effective solution for high-density applications, this passive cooling solution allows customers to maximize energy efficiency by including no active components to increase maintenance cost and compromise redundancy, while decreasing total cost of ownership.

The N-Series TeraFrame features advanced cable management solutions that simplify installation and maintenance while providing maximum cable management capacity. The cabinet is designed to accept cables through openings located on the top and bottom of the cabinet, while special T-shaped cable guides and cable management spools align with each RMU, precisely dividing and organizing cables as they enter and exit the rack-mount space. With the ability to manage 48 Cat 6a UTP cables per RMU, the N-Series TeraFrame supplies abundant cabling opportunities.

In order to route and manage large quantities of cable, the N-Series TeraFrame contains Standoff Brackets that support offset doors and side panels, thereby creating added space between the cabinet frame, side panels and doors. Cabinet doors and side panels are easy to remove and provide full access to equipment and cabling, while the ability to route cables around the frame instead of through it offers a simple way to trace cables during moves, add and changes.

The N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet is designed to meet third party specifications for Cisco 6500 and 9500 switches and provides the ultimate network cabinet solution.
