Siemon introduced an extended-depth version of its VersaPOD data centre cabinet solution to support deeper networking, server and SAN equipment. Like the 1000-mm depth VersaPOD VP1, the new 1200-mm (48-in.) deep VersaPOD VP2 integrates bayed data centre cabinets with Siemon’s ZERO-U vertical patching and cable management capability. The VersaPOD VP2’s combination of additional front-to-back cabinet space and ZERO-U patching is ideal, says Siemon, for high-density data centre environments. The VP2 retains the same standard 760-mm width as the original version, leveraging the vertical space between bayed cabinets for patching, cable management or standard 19-in. vertically mounted PDUs without consuming horizontal mounting space for connectivity. The ZERO-U vertical copper and fiber patch panels (VPP) provide up to 24 U of mounting space between every two cabinets, while end-of-row panels offer an additional 8U of vertical space for end units.
