New Ethernet cabling system
The AMP Netconnect business unit of Tyco Electronics announces the general availability of its reduced diameter MRJ21 Ultra Slim Gigabit Ethernet cabling system.
The trimmed-down MRJ21 Ultra Slim cable assembly is 9.14mm in diameter, weighs 40% less than comparable four-pair cabling systems, occupies 45% less rack space, requires 25% less power per port, and promises to help to reduce data-centre operating costs.
The MRJ21 Ultra Slim cable assembly is a major development in the structured cabling marketplace, especially for data-centre customers who are seeking to optimise space in the rack, on the floor, and throughout cable pathways.
“Our MRJ21 Ultra Slim cabling system is the thinnest copper Gigabit Ethernet solution available from Tyco Electronics”, comments David Richens, Senior System Application Engineer at Tyco Electronics. “We are excited to bring this innovative cabling technology to our customers and to the marketplace. It is the perfect solution for today’s server-crowded data centres where space is a premium.
“Tighter IT budgets coupled with escalating power costs are driving technology selection. In this context, the design of our MRJ21 ultra slim cable improves airflow, dissipates heat more efficiently and reduces overall power consumption.”
