Cupertino, CA - Panduit Corp., a leading global provider of data center solutions, today announced the launch of its new HD Flex™ 2.0 Fiber Cabling System. Engineered to provide high fiber density and serviceability for high-performance data centers, HD Flex™ 2.0 will debut at Cisco Live 2016, July 10-14, in Las Vegas, NV.

The latest addition to Panduit’s expansive line of fiber solutions, the HD Flex™ 2.0 Fiber Cabling System, has been designed for ease of integration with existing fiber infrastructure by accommodating fiber cassettes and fiber adapter panels (FAPs) with different port counts within the same innovative enclosure and panel.  6-port or 12-port cassettes and FAPs can be deployed in virtually any combination to achieve up to 144-fibers (LC) or 864-fibers (MPO) per rack unit.  This solution enables seamless port migration from 10G to 25/40/50/100G in the same RU space without replacing existing fibers and provides substantial savings.

“Today’s IT managers are increasingly tasked with providing higher data speeds while controlling costs by maximizing return on assets”, said Marc Naese, Senior Vice President of Panduit’s Data Center Business Unit. “Panduit’s groundbreaking HD Flex™ Fiber Cabling System achieves both. It is designed for optimum serviceability and manageability, providing the scalability to increase density as business demands evolve.”

The HD Flex™ 2.0 Fiber Cabling System also provides a clear path for adopting Cisco Nexus* 9000 Series Switches and ACI* 40Gig and spine-leaf architecture with a reliable physical infrastructure. It offers the lowest installation and test costs through the utilization of 12-port cassettes, as fewer cassettes are required per RU of rack space.

Ron Cauchi, Vice President & Managing Partner of Ewing-Foley says “The New HD Flex Fiber Cabling System from Panduit comes at the perfect time in the next evolution of data centers. Our customers are being asked to do more with less, optimize their space, and increase productivity. This new solution from Panduit helps our clients achieve their IT goals and business objectives.”

Available for immediate delivery, Panduit’s HD Flex™ 2.0 easily integrates with current and future systems through a full line of fiber enclosures, patch panels, cable managers, and zero RU brackets, which allows end-users to deploy HD Flex™ cassettes and FAPs anywhere within the organization.
