Furukawa, one of the largest manufacturers of infrastructure solutions for communications networks presents HDX, a new line of products consists of optical distributors, consolidation points, TeraLan cassettes and patch panels.
Furukawa introduced this new line supplementing the solution of ITMAX optical communications infrastructure for data centers. It has a modern design with a series of differential functions as a locking access to distributors optical fibers, the simplicity of insertion and removal of the cassette and ease for anchorage pre-connectorized cables.
This new product line represents a solution to the lack of space and the high cost of installation and construction, which are facing who carry out projects in datacenters.
According to Helio Durigan, Vice President of Engineering and Marketing at Furukawa, the new equipment for data processing and storage (switching, storage and processing) are becoming more dense and powerful, and new infrastructure projects for Datacenters need to contemplate such equipment installed in dense cabling networks with greater support broadband and facilities management and security. ”
So Furukawa constantly seeks to improve connectivity solutions and services, to ensure the functionality of the installed applications.
A recent market study from IMS Research’s (Electronics Market Research & Consultancy) indicated that at the end of this year, the Latin American market of data center infrastructure will exceed the total volume of $1 billion and should grow at an annual rate of 10% until 2016.
In Argentina, the data center market continues to grow, depending on the investments made in the fields of finance, industry, telecommunications, oil, mining and automotive and other industries.
“To compete in a global market, these environments must provide high efficiency in various aspects such as energy consumption for processing power, storage capacity, with trends of increased scanning efficiency and orientating this market,” said Durigan.
Japanese fiber-optic products manufacturer Furukawa will invest around USD 5 million by 2016 to build a fiber-optic cables plant in Colombia. The facility will be located in the municipality of Palmira, in the department of Valle del Cauca. Preoperational activities are expected to start in mid-August this year and the first production will be out in February 2014. The facility will be Furukawa’s third telecommunications plant in South America.
