NAMEX datacenter is provided with a distributed meet-me infrastructure that enables any two racks in the data center to connect each other both in fiber and copper technology.
In order to activate new cross connections to other racks, each newly installed rack has to be connected to the nearest meet-me room terminal by means of structured cabling that include an optical/electrical trunk terminating on aa demarcation patch-panel. All cross-connects will then be realized inside the meet-me room infrastructure, as fiber or copper patches between demarcation patch-panels.
Structured cabling setup
NAMEX uses MPO (multi-fiber push on) technology to optimize occupation, setup and traceability of cross-connects between patch-panels. Structured cabling from racks to meet-me room terminals are realized by NAMEX according to customer requests, connections available are:
- – Single-mode OS1 fiber / LC connector
- – Multimode OM4 fiber / LC connector
- – Cat6 Copper / RJ45 connector
Minimum order quantity is 12 fiber pairs or 5 copper cables, each 1RU patch-panel can host up to 48 fiber pairs or 20 copper cables.
