Based on years of experience, the handbook serves as a reference work on relevant standards, technical terms, trends, and applications. It helps customers achieve an optimum data centre layout and to plan cabling architecture as well as reduce energy needs and select security solutions. The document offers practical solutions for next-generation 100, 200 and 400G networks.
As everything from the network to the applications themselves, relies on the physical layer, it is crucial that this is designed to meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs of the data centre.
‘We have been providing leadership to the network cabling industry for more than five decades and have helped hundreds of companies worldwide deliver optimum performance and reliability of their data centre network,’ said Dr Thomas Wellinger, market manager data centre at R&M. ‘Through this experience, we learned that data centre professionals could benefit from a primer on how to navigate through ever-increasing complexity. We have dedicated an entire chapter to “Automated Infrastructure Management” to share our working knowledge of data centre operations strategies and the best practices to realize maximum impact from more automated data centre operations.’
