Commercial Overview   DC Session 1   Introduction To Cabling Standards And The Impact Of Data Centres On The Ict Industry Commercial Overview DC Session 1 Introduction To Cabling Standards And The Impact Of Data Centres On The Ict Industry Presentation Transcript

  • Introduction to Cabling Standards and the impact of Data Centres on the ICT industry 23rd November 2008 Paul Mathews MInstSMM Global Channel Manager
  • Structured Cabling Need for Structured Cabling – 1836 Telegraph – 1876 Telephone – 1911 Automatic switch – 1948 Transistor – 1950 PABX – 1960 IBM S360 Computer – 1980 PCs (Apple IBM) – 1980 LANs (Ethernet ) – 1980 Telephone Switches – 1990 10BASE-T – 1995 100BASE-T – 1999 1000BASE-T – 2000 Video distribution – 2000 Convergence – 2006 10GBASE-T 1985 TR-42 Cabling Standards
  • Cabling Standards Cabling Standards 16 MHz • CATEGORY 3 – NOW ONLY USED FOR HIGH PAIR COUNT BACKBONE TELEPHONE CABLES – SOMETIMES CALLED CW1308 IN UK 20 MHz • CATEGORY 4 – NOW RETIRED IN MODERN STANDARDS 100 MHz • CATEGORY 5 – THE MAJOR PRODUCT IN STRUCTURED CABLING – CAT5 WAS UPGRADED TO “CAT5e” IN 2000 and revamped again in 2002 250 MHz • CATEGORY 6 – A NEW STANDARD PUBLISHED IN 2002 500 MHz – CAT 6A WAS RATIFIED 2008 • CATEGORY 7 – A NEW STANDARD PUBLISHED IN 2002 600 MHz • CATEGORY 7A – DRAFT STANDARDS BEING REVAMPED FOR CLASS FA 1000 MHz
  • Cabling Standards Cabling Standards ISO/IEC 11801 Information Technology – Generic cabling for customer premises TIA 942 DATA CENTRES ANSI EIA/TIA 568-B EN50173 Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard Information technology. Generic cabling systems. General requirements and office areas
  • Cabling Standards Cabling Standards • ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A – first ratified in 1991 with the goal to specify a structured cabling system with a projected usable life on at least 10 years • 1995: TSB-72 introduced ‘Centralised fibre optic guidelines’ • 2001: TIA-568-B.1 incorporated centralised cabling into the standards • 2005: TIA-568-B and 568-B.1 Addendum 5 added Telecommunication Enclosures (TE) that enable optical fibre to be used and connected within zone cabling • New addendums added Gigabit Ethernet, Cat 6 and 850nm laser- optimised 50um fibre
  • ICT Evolution ICT Evolution • The need for faster and more bandwidth (such as video streaming content) • The need for more space as computer rooms evolve, caused by larger storage areas for: Servers and communications cabling Routers and switches, fibre channel SAN equipment, storage devices, keyboards and monitors The BAD Security, access and CCTV equipment old days… Racks • See Connectix Article 6 – Server cabinet installation • See Connectix Article 21 – Why choose Cat 5e, 6 or 10G
  • ICT Evolution ICT Evolution • The average lifetime of cabling systems is 3 years The new ICT age…. • Is the end user maximising their return on investment? • Company expansion • Development of standards, education and best practice installation
  • The datadata centre? What is a centre... • “A building or portion of a building whose primary function is to house a computer room and its support areas,” according to TIA 942 • Includes redundant or backup power supplies, redundant data communications connections, HVAC, fire suppression and special security devices • Tier 1 – can be as small as a normal computer room • Tier 4 – mission critical computer systems such as ISP hosting, financial services and emergency services infrastructures
  • Driversdata centres Drivers for for DC's • Disaster backup – 9/11, Buncefield Oil depot, Hurricane Katrina • Data protection legislation – Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II • Growth in online businesses – Mail-order, internet gambling • Growth in financial sector – Share dealing, internet banking, credit card transactions • Competition amongst universities for ‘distance-learning’ students • Corporate organisations requiring security, storage, resilience and back-up • EU Data Retention Directive (Aug 2007), 2 years of call records
  • DataData Centre Dynamics Ctr Dynamics 1.0 Physical location of the data centre 2.0 Physical sizing and capabilities 3.0 Electrical systems to and within the data centre 4.0 Fire minimisation, detection, alarm and suppression 5.0 Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) 6.0 Communications Cabling within and to the data centre 7.0 Cabling containment within the data centre (including raised floors) 8.0 Equipment racks and cabinets 9.0 Information Technology equipment 10.0 Security, Access and CCTV 11.0 Project management 12.0 Ongoing maintenance
  • Tier Performance Data Centre Tier Performance Tier Classifications per TIA-942 Standard Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Site availability 99.671% 99.749% 99.982% 99.995% Downtime (hours 28.8 22.0 1.6 0.4 per year) Operations Centre Not required Not required Required Required
  • New technology New technology and techniques • Connectix Express range offers preterminated, pre-tested links that exceed the performance requirements – Express preterminated are available for Net 10G, Net 6 or Net 5E and Fibre including Lightspeed • Removes on-site termination, massively reducing the time required to install • Excellent performance is assured because all the terminations are carried out by skilled personnel in the UK Pre terminated • Full performance testing of every link is carried out prior to dispatch copper and fibre • Pre-labelled with the required scheme systems
  • Starlight MTP Starlight MTP • Pre terminated MTP high density fibre optic system for high speed networks • 80% quicker to install over traditional pre terminated fibre optics • Supports future transmissions of 40Gbit and 100Gbit/second • Will provide 12 – 96 cores in 1u of rack space (3mm diameter cables – less cable tray, less air flow obstruction, easier cabinet entry and easier fire-stopping)
  • Quality control Quality control • Working within an ISO 9001 quality regime Connectix controls quality right from the start • A unique 100% testing programme – Only Inferometer measuring equipment in the UK for Lightspeed – 12 months developing / training and equipping – £80k investment in new facility in Braintree • Connectix controls quality all the way outstanding through the supply chain by only using quality and trained system integrators approved and performance authorised and qualified distribution warranty… partners
