Ultra high density is only valuable in an optical distribution frame (ODF) if circuits are readily accessible and fiber optic cabling is well protected to prevent unnecessary strain.
With HyperX, Amphenol Network Solutions addresses these crucial requirements, reducing the overall footprint of the ODF, while engineering in unparalleled bend radius protection and strain relief. The result is a hyperdense ODF solution that’s significantly more manageable and usable than traditional frames.
Hyperscale and Tier 1 Solution
Today’s datacenter fabric requires more and more fiber connectivity. Circuit counts are so high (and ever-increasing) that port count per square foot of facility space is among the top priorities of network engineers. Managing and maintaining organization of that fiber is paramount.
HyperX addresses this challenge directly, but also incorporates a higher degree of usability through comprehensive cable management and port accessibility when used with the C2X fiber distribution panel. Populating the HyperX frame with Amphenol Network Solutions C2X panels maintains density while incorporating efficient, market leading cable management to enable the best port access.
In this configuration, HyperX supports up to 5,760 (LC) terminations in the 56” frame, or approximately 617 connections per square foot. (This includes cable management panels on each side of the frame, which effectively handle the large volume of optical cabling created in a high-density installation.)
Improved Cost per Square Foot
Calculating the overall investment of an ODF is a complex proposition. Do you include warehouse storage of unused patch panels waiting to be deployed? Does cable management and protection from damage fit into the equation? Does the added cost of difficult circuit access and additional maintenance time contribute to overall cost?
Taking a holistic approach, HyperX lowers the total ODF cost (again, per port, per square foot) through its enhanced usability, the best cable management, and modular functionality—while still exceeding density expectations.
With cable managers on both sides of the frame, the width of the HyperX footprint is slightly wider than traditional ODFs, but this enables significantly higher density and delivers clear improvements in usability which more than make up for this difference.
“Proper cable management is absolutely essential for keeping your fiber network operating at peak performance,” said Peter Adams, Amphenol Network Solutions product manager. “Network maintenance becomes more efficient when your cable is clearly routed and when your network techs have easy access to individual fibers.
