NAMEX datacenter is provided with a new distributed meet-me infrastructure that enables any two racks in the datacenter 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 a structural 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.
Structural cabling setup
NAMEX uses MPO (multi-fiber push on) technology to optimize occupation, setup and traceability of cross-connects between patch-panels. Structural 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
- Multi mode OM4 fiber / LC connector
- Cat6 Copper / RJ45 connector
Minimum order quantity is 6 fiber pairs or 5 copper cables, each 1RU patch-panel can host up to 48 fiber pairs or 20 copper cables.
Single cross-connects are realized by NAMEX: according to NAMEX official price list 2018, all cross-connects passing through the new MMR/MPO infrastructure are charged a recurring fee of €60/month, cross-connects internal to the legacy MMR infrastructure are charged a non-recurring fee of 150€. All prices excluding VAT.
