The NETpodium rack system provides the cable management necessary for the Cu and FO intensive areas of today's data centers. This innovative enclosure can accept 45 1HU patch panels, is equipped with 2 large vertical cable attachment ducts to store and attach Cu and FO cables. The use of the newly designed cable managers provides complete bend radius protection at every turn to ensure network performance and reliability. When used in conjunction with TE's Universal Connectivity Platform (UCP), NETpodium results in a significant increase in Rack Efficiency (RE) where rack efficiency is the ratio of percentage of available space used to the amount of usable space within the rack envelope.
- Storage:Two large vertical channels at the core of the frame allow installed copper and fiber cables to be correctly stored whilst maintaining correct bend radius and physical protection.
- Accessibility:Cable management arms specifically designed to organise patch cords for easy access and re-access during MAC work (Moves Adds and Changes), and to ensure bend radius protection during patch cord transition from the panel to vertical ducting
- Presentation:Multiple fixing locations allow accessories to be located exactly where needed along the entire 45U height of the rack. "Tool-less" fasteners for securing panels and accessories can be inserted in to a T-Channel in the vertical posts and guided to the correct location before being simply snapped into place.
- Efficiency:NETpodium when used in conjunction with TE's Universal Connectivity Platform (UCP), results in a significant increase in Rack Efficiency (RE) where rack efficiency is the ratio of percentage of available space used to the amount of usable space within the rack envelope. In addition to these four points NETpodium can be deployed to serve in many different functional areas of a data center. As a frame it can be bayed in a line-op or placed back-to-back with other NETpodium racks to be used as a cross-connect. Configured as a closed cabinet it can offer the physical security required for End of Row, Server Rack or Entrance Facility solutions. NETpodium deployed with UCP offers a versatile solution. Together they give the flexibility to deploy and then adapt a physical infrastructure to meet, as yet unforeseen, networking needs as they arise.
