BOTHELL, Wash., September 23, 2015 / PRNewswire / – Leviton Network Solutions today announced that its OM4 + purple fiber cabling system, installed in eBay data centers, has been recognized as one of the best in the industry by the judges of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2015 Innovators program Awards. The jury consisted of designers, designers, integrators and managers of cabling and communication systems with extensive professional experience.
Leviton Network Solutions and eBay were recognized as Gold recipients.
“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovator Awards, I would like to congratulate Leviton Network Solutions and eBay on their Gold level award status,” said the editor of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Group. Alain bergstein. “This competitive and impartial program celebrates the most innovative projects in the structured cabling industry. We are thrilled to celebrate Leviton Network Solutions and eBay Gold status and recognize their contribution to the structured cabling industry.
As part of its technology roadmap for data centers, eBay was planning to move to 40 GbE on its servers. In order to meet the demands of the new design, it needed a cabling solution capable of supporting extremely long multimode fiber paths (up to 500 meters long) and enabling migration to future speeds of 100 GbE and 400 GbE bandwidth.
The company tested the Leviton OM4 + Premium Violet Data Center fiber optic system with 40GBASE-XSR4 extended range transceivers. Although these transceivers have a maximum distance stated by the manufacturer of 400 meters, the channel has been successfully tested beyond this length without error or loss of packets when transmitting over 500 meters. Testing then led eBay to install the OM4 + system in four of its data centers. The system uses all OM4 + cabling and connectivity, including Leviton Opt-X Unity trunks, harnesses, network cords, and cassettes.
