TE Connectivity launches core Vertical Switch Management VSM platform
By Anthony Capkun
April 17, 2013 – TE Connectivity is offering a new application-driven solution for the cabling challenges presented by vertical blade-based core switch systems. The core Vertical Switch Management (VSM) platform routes cables directly from switch ports to patch panels above the switch, providing space, access and maintenance benefits. In this core VSM platform, all patch cables—whether fiber or copper—are managed vertically, and just one length of patch cord is required to patch within a frame, simplifying the build process and ongoing logistics. The design consists of a cable management guide that fits above the switch, and copper or fiber modules that provide connections for blades of either media. The complete core VSM platform can be installed within an 800-mm wide cabinet.
