CommScope's SYSTIMAX 2.0: Next-gen connectivity solutions

CommScope launched the next generation of its SYSTIMAX building and data centre connectivity portfolio which provides customers with the latest structured cabling solutions

“With the SYSTIMAX 2.0 enhancements, CommScope is expanding its support for future customer needs with continuous technology innovation, world-class performance and reliability, application assurance and unrivalled global support,” stated Luc Adriaenssens, vice-president of Enterprise Product Management and R&D, CommScope. “We will be evolving the SYSTIMAX portfolio of products and services to ensure we continue to meet those needs.”

Two new innovative solutions 

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 fibre 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 consists of intelligent copper panels and fibre 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 centre and facilities managers need simple real-time insights to improve efficiency and reduce connection errors. The SYSTIMAX VisiPORT solution meets this need.
