Addressing Rising Power Densities in the Data Center Starts with an Integrated Cabinet Foundation Image

By Ashish Moondra Director of Strategic Alliances and Electronics & Software Product Manager and Sam Rodriguez Senior Product Manager, Cabinets, Containment & Industrial Solutions

As data centers deploy emerging digital services and high-performance computing (HPC) technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and advanced data analytics, they face rising rack power densities of over 20 kilowatts (kW), with extreme density racks reaching 80kW or higher. Increasing power density leads to higher heat generation, which demands more effective cooling solutions to prevent equipment failure and costly downtime. At the same time, data center cooling accounts for 30 to 50% of total energy consumption.

The demand for digital services and high-performance computing (HPC) technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and advanced data analytics is increasing rapidly. As a result, power density requirements in the data center industry are reaching new heights, rising from an average of 2.4 kilowatts (kW) in 2011 to 8.4 kW in 2020. 
Next-Generation Vertical Cable Management for the Digital Era Image

By Michael Moore, Sr Product Manager - Open Architecture

As enterprises digitally transform to remain competitive and meet customer and employee expectations, they demand high-performance, reliable, scalable and available networks that deliver the bandwidth and latency needed to support emerging technologies and an ever-increasing number of devices. With the average hourly cost of network downtime exceeding $300K for more than 90% of enterprises, according to ITIC’s 2022 Hourly Cost of Downtime Survey, cabling infrastructure that serves as the foundation of the network is the lifeline of business today.
Deploying Wireless Solutions in Today’s Advanced Healthcare Environments Image

By Scott Thompson; President, Oberon™, a Division of Chatsworth Products (CPI)

Wireless technology has been used in healthcare for the past two decades, initially used primarily for clinicians to digitally record and access patient information via handheld tablets. Now advancements in Wi-Fi technology and the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), combined with the need to cut costs and improve productivity, are giving rise to a broad range of wireless applications in the healthcare environment.
Optimizing Next-Generation Wireless Deployments for the Digital World Image

Scott Thompson; President, Oberon™, a Division of Chatsworth Products (CPI)

Over the past two decades, wireless technology has evolved as an essential means to provide internet connectivity and transmit voice, data, and video to and from people and devices. According to Statista, the number of wireless local area network (WLAN)-connected devices is estimated at more than 22 billion globally, with smartphone users alone surpassing 6 billion in 2022, equating to more than 83% of the world’s population. Now with trends like remote and hybrid working fueled by the pandemic, global e-commerce, and emerging Internet of Things/Industrial Internet of Things (IoT/IIoT) applications that are increasing demand for more wireless connectivity, it’s no wonder that a recent report by Markets and Markets estimates the wireless market to grow from $69 billion in 2020 to $141 billion by 2025.
How Power over Ethernet (POE) Will Impact Ethernet Networks and How To Support It In Premise Networks Image

By Michael Moore, Sr Product Manager - Open Architecture and Tom Cabral, Field Applications Engineer

According to the Cisco Annual Internet Report (2018-2023), global M2M connections will grow 2.4-fold, from 6.1 billion in 2018 to 14.7 billion by 2023, and there will be 1.8 M2M connections for each member of the global population by 2023.

Additionally, connected home applications, such as home automation, home security and video surveillance, connected white goods, and tracking applications, will represent 48 percent, or nearly half, of the total M2M connections by 2023. For the network engineers responsible for designing and managing the enterprise and premise networks upon which these and countless other connections will depend, especially when it comes to ensuring availability and speed of these networks to business users, there are a number of technologies that should be considered when planning network upgrades.

This white paper, by Chatsworth Products (CPI), summarizes one such technology—Power over Ethernet (PoE)—and its impact on the physical premise network, while highlighting the most recent advancements in cable management and equipment storage that will help with network upgrades and ensure a smooth, reliable deployment of PoE-enabled systems that are poised to become instrumental in the fast-rising world of M2M connections highlighted above and beyond.
Data Center Airflow Management Basics: Key Steps for Optimizing Cooling Performance  Image

By John Thompson, Field Applications Engineer, Chatsworth Products and Amir Radmehr, Ph.D. Director and Member of Technical Staff , Innovative Research, Inc. (IRI)

One of the main operational challenges in data centers is optimizing cooling performance. Optimizing cooling performance improves capacity utilization and may allow cooling system adjustments that reduce cooling costs and OPEX. In air-cooled data centers, the key is to understand how changes in the site impact cooling, and how airflow management can be used as a tool for optimization.

There are practical limits to how much power or air can be delivered to a cabinet depending on each room design. However, today’s average cabinet density of 8-10 kW is well within the cooling capacity of typical airflow supplied to the cabinet. With this in mind, it is likely many organizations still have some unused or possibly wasted cooling capacity in their air-cooled data center, especially if they do not practice a comprehensive airflow management strategy.
Global Insights Into How to Prepare the Data Center for a Remotely Working World Image

By Ashish Moondra; Sr Product Manager - Power, Electronics & Software

Although advanced technologies are taking a more prominent role in our day-to-day life, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry faced unprecedented challenges in 2020: how to immediately transition administrative and professional staff and students to remote work and learning, how to maintain the network with limited access to facilities? Reliable connectivity was no longer a privilege, but a necessity. For data centers, uptime became critical. And to support the huge amount of connected devices and sensors, edge deployments sprawled. As a result, critical factors such as power management, cooling capacity and physical security have now taken on even greater importance. How will these trends impact the ICT infrastructure in a post-pandemic reality?
Key Considerations for Remote Management and Operational Efficiency in Data Center Cabinets Image

By David Knapp Product Marketing Manager, Chatsworth Products and Ashish Moondra Sr. Product Manager Power, Electronics & Software Chatsworth Products

In an interconnected world, where organizations use a mix of enterprise-owned and cloud-based services, managing assets and white space remotely has become increasingly important. That process begins with a focus on the data center cabinet (rack) and gaining an understanding of how the subsystems in the cabinet form an ecosystem to support Information and Communications Technology (ICT) equipment.

By integrating the data center cabinet with hardware and software into a single platform, data center managers can truly gain visibility and understanding of the different dynamics within the data center to make informed decisions. Furthermore, the integration of IT infrastructure, hardware and software from the same manufacturer eliminates the challenges and confusion that result from pairing different products from different providers.

This white paper defines key considerations for remote management and operational efficiency in data center cabinets and shows how selecting an integrated solution will help simplify white space management.
