The Need for Speed: CommScope's New High Speed Migration Platform Prepares Data Center Managers for Decades of Increased Bandwidth
As the world embarks on a potential fourth
Industrial Revolution, it is the 30 to 50 billion connected devices
that will spur the unprecedented growth in bandwidth. The next few
years are critical to building the networks that will meet the demand.
In anticipation of this need, CommScope,
a leader in communications network infrastructure solutions, is
introducing its High Speed Migration platform that assists data center
managers with building faster, more agile, high-density migration plans.
"With our High
Speed Migration solutions, we're able to help data center managers
accelerate the growth of their DC capacity and the speed of their
digital transformation initiatives," said John
Schmidt, vice president of Global Data Center Solutions at
CommScope. "We are quickly moving from 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s to 100Gb/s,
400Gb/s and beyond. The more data consumers and network users need, the
more services they expect, the more critical speed becomes. This is a
global phenomenon and one of the top challenges that data center
managers will face."
CommScope's High Speed Migration portfolio works for duplex and parallel
applications and allows customers to decide on the best approach to
architecture. It also supports higher speeds and emerging applications
without having to rip and replace. More than that, the platform allows
CommScope to act as a trusted partner with our highly trained team of
network architects who understand a customer's business needs and
provides insight to future data center ecosystems and technology trends.
The following innovative solutions are part of the first phase of the
High Speed Migration platform and support current and future high speed
MPO connectivity options: 24-fiber connections that ensure
lowest first cost duplex deployments with a single connection,
12-fiber to support the seamless expansion of legacy 12-fiber
infrastructures, and 8-fiber support QSFP technologies, providing for
customers utilizing this parallel optic configuration.
Fiber optic panels: Ultra- and high- density panels
that simplify management of duplex and parallel ports for dynamic
migration and flexibility.
Ultra-Low Loss (ULL) performance: Ultra-low loss pre-terminated
components enable longer link spans with more connectivity options and
guaranteed support for attenuation-sensitive applications.

As part of CommScope's entire High Speed Migration strategy, solutions
include all fiber types (multimode and single mode), intelligence and
customized connectors for all data centers.
Delivering connectivity resources at scale has become a competitive
differentiator, per Jennifer Cooke, research director in IDC's
Datacenter Trends and Strategies group. Digital transformation
initiatives are built on making data-driven decisions, and the
ever-increasing need for speed will challenge network and data providers
"Preparing to meet this challenge requires not only investment, but a
strategy and vision to transition when and where resources are needed,"
"CommScope's high-speed migration services meet a critical need in the
market by providing a bridge between current and future demand and
supporting a strategic vision for data center and network
