The data center is the heart of every enterprise network, enabling the transmission, access and storage of all information. Here, cabling connects enterprise local area networks (LANs) to switches, servers, storage area networks (SANs), and other active equipment that supports all applications, transactions and communication. It also is where the LAN connects to service provider networks that provide access to the Internet and other networks outside of the facility.
As the amount of information and applications continues to grow, data centers are expanding their capacity to house increasing amounts of active equipment and more links than ever before while also needing to enable high-bandwidth, low-latency data transmission to and from equipment. Proper data center design involves maximizing space to allow for growth and scalability, making sure cabling pathways are manageable, improving efficiency and ensuring overall performance, reliability and resilience.
