Product Spotlight: Tripp Lite Robotic Fiber Panel Systems
Typically, physical fiber connections in data centers and colocation environments are handled manually by on-site engineers. Unfortunately, this type of hands-on provisioning and the physical handling of adds, moves and changes of Layer-1 connections can create opportunities for costly human error. To remedy these issues, Tripp Lite has introduced cutting-edge Robotic Fiber Panel System technology that uses latching robotic technology to automatically create fiber connections in data center, colocation and telco facilities.
These optical switching systems automate the physical fiber connection process and help eliminate risk of physical damage to equipment, reduce data center congestion and accelerate response to disaster recovery. By enabling physical fiber connections to be made automatically, remotely, quickly and without on-site manual intervention, organizations can effectively reduce their capital expenditure and operating expense while simultaneously improving network reliability and security.
Defense in Depth Architecture Provides Enhanced, Multi-Layered Solution A well-known Texas university, particularly noted for its massive media department, needed to upgrade the cybersecurity on their pair of data centers to accommodate their ever-growing student population. In particular, they were concerned that their legacy firewall set-up was not providing them with adequate cybersecurity. What was…
