Connectivity solutions provider AFL Hyperscale, has introduced two new DCI solutions; Connectorised and Splice. Both solutions utilise AFL’s Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC) with SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR®) technology.

The company says its DCI Connectorised solutions allow operators to quickly and easily cross connect data centres, simplifying data centre design, build and deployment. Solutions include Ultra-High Fibre Count MPO Trunk Assembly, Ultra-High Fibre Count Patch Frame, MPO Trunk Assemblies, ASCEND® Housings and ASCEND MPO Patch Cassettes, ensure rapid and reliable communication throughout the data centre. This, says AFL, results in lower costs, reduced deployment time, the maximisation of pathway space and enhanced operational efficiency.

Designed to enhance network performance, future-proof and accelerate a network’s growth, AFL Hyperscale’s DCI Splice solutions provide connections across a campus or metro environment utilising WTC with SWR technology. AFL says this combination can be installed 60-75% faster when using mass-fusion splicing compared to single fibre. Data centre operators can achieve a DCI Splice link with Flame-Retardant RI Indoor, Flame-Retardant RIO Indoor/Outdoor and Outside Plant cable – all of which use WTC with SWR technology. Mass-Fusion Splice Cabinet and U-Series Front-Access V-Panel (FVP) 6RU are two other DCI splice solutions.

“We understand the need of cost-effectiveness and efficiency in business,” said Daniel Rose, commercial director of AFL Connectivity for Europe, Middle East and Asia. “That’s why our DCI solutions are specifically designed to facilitate rapid and effective data centre networking, improve operational efficiency, optimise data centre operations and maintain prompt project execution due to our comprehensive suite of products available worldwide, offering robust, high-quality infrastructure that consistently delivers superior performance and stability.”

“These innovative offerings allow customers to link multiple data centres, forming an integrated network that enhances productivity, balances workloads, and meets the demands of growing bandwidth and cloud migration requirements,” continued Rose.
