Customers increasingly need to support higher-demand devices on their twisted-pair Ethernet networks. The GigaSPEED XL5™ technology is CommScope’s new multi-patented solution for customers needing to step up from 1 Gbps copper before making a commitment to 10 Gbps copper. The GigaSPEED XL5 solution supports applications such as multigigabit backhaul connectivity for advanced wireless access points. This new solution supports 2.5/5 gigabit Ethernet applications in 4-connector, 100m channels with bundled cables, while maintaining the ease of installation of our GigaSPEED XL® solution.
CommScope’s new VisiPORT™ solution is an automated copper and fiber port status and capacity monitoring system that improves efficiency, reduces errors and removes the need for ongoing database maintenance. Using real-time data to lead decision-making reduces errors; the VisiPORT solution detects and transmits events upon the insertion or removal of a plug and can provide alerts on unexpected or unapproved patching activity. The solution is easy to deploy and provides instantaneous port status and port capacity information with the ability to set user defined thresholds for action. The VisiPORT solution is comprised of intelligent copper panels and fiber shelves with built-in port sensors and system controllers. The solution leverages the port-sensing technology that is foundational to CommScope’s comprehensive imVision® Automated Infrastructure Management (AIM) solution. In a fast-changing environment, data center and facilities managers need simple real-time insights to improve efficiency and reduce connection errors. The SYSTIMAX VisiPORT solution meets this need.
