Patch Panel: used to connect and manage incoming and outgoing cables

How to Prepare for Server Rack Installation

High-density cabling in data centers is increasingly tied to the server rack. Because server racks make it easy to manage cabling systems and protect fibers from external mechanical damage. However, this is only possible if server racks are properly installed and used. In this post, some tips and accessories for server rack installations are listed. Choose the Right Server Rack…

Rack and Wall Mount Fiber Patch Panel

Introduction to Fiber Patch Panel

People always say that the patch panel is the “unsung hero” in the data center. It’s pretty vivid. Because there is no doubt that the patch panel is an indispensable component of the simple and tidy cable management. Usually, it is used in two kinds of cabling system, fiber, and copper cabling systems. Therefore, it can be divided into two…

10G ISCSI Switch

Why Choose 10 Gagibit ISCSI Switch for SAN?

With the development of technology, many users are considering upgrading to 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch. Of course, when it comes to the edges of the fiber switch, the obvious advantage of the Gigabit switch is the speed. The Gigabit Ethernet and 10GbE switch can also bring other advantages, such as reducing cabling and bottlenecks. In addition, another important advantage is…

Understanding the Modular Patch Panel

Cable management is a significant part of a network which is designed well. Managing cables have contributed to maintaining the essential function of data centers and protect devices from airflow blockages caused by unorganized and disordered cables. Therefore, users usually solve cabling problems with fiber patch panel, splicing fiber enclosure, server rack and other cable management methods. Among them, fiber…

Fibre Channel SFP

Fibre Channel SFP: Why Fibre Channel?

With the advent of SFP transceiver communication, there have been many different standards. In network hardware, the advantage of SFP transceivers is that they allow a single device, such as a switch, to support different cabling and transmission formats. However, when you try to find out which optical transceiver type you need, you will encounter problems. Because there are several…
