Belden is a St. Louis-based provider of signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications. The company manufactures and markets dark cable, connectivity and networking products in such industries as industrial automation, enterprise, transportation, infrastructure and consumer electronics.
In an effort to provide a cost-effective way to deliver more bandwidth in data centers, Belden just announced the expansion of its line of data center solutions with SFP+ Direct Attached Cables.
Belden’s SFP+ Direct Attached Cables specifically deliver lower power and latency with higher density. Further, these cables are more cost effective than traditional fiber and twisted-pair copper cabling used in top-of-rack and middle-of-rack data center deployments.
As Belden offers SFP+ Direct Attached Cables in one-foot increments, cable management is significantly reduced in high-density applications with less slack and easier reconfigurations. SFP+ Direct Attached Cables are manufactured with Belden Lightskew series cable that offers intra-pair delay skew as low as 10ps/, silver-plated conductors, aluminum/Mylar foil and tinned copper braiding and an FT4/CL2-rated PVC jacket, so the solution meets the most stringent signal transmission performance requirements.
The zinc die-cast connectors with easy pull-to-release action are compatible with virtually all SFP+ Direct Attached compliant devices, the company said.
In another related announcement, Belden formed a partnership with industrial network solution providers to launch a program to design, install, configure and test companies' new or expanded industrial Ethernet infrastructures. The program will include certification of their performance and reliability using Belden's demanding standards and best practices as a benchmark.
Earlier in September, Belden announced that its Telecast Fiber Systems brand is being combined into its recently acquired Miranda brand. Telecast is now a featured product brand under the Miranda umbrella.
Telecast Fiber Systems from Belden provides intensive research in the field, and has offered a complete family of fiber optic communications systems delivering the transmission of virtually all the signals used in television broadcast production.
