Vodafone implements cabling patterns from Siemon for its Milan campus
One of the global giants in the industry of mobile communications, enterprise Vodafone, has selected a dedicated Siemon category 7A optical cable inf4rastructure for the network building and design at its brand new almost 70,000 square meter headquarters in Milan, Italy.
This telecommunications hub is the scalable, promising geographical location, was officially opened at the very beginning of 2013 by Italian governmental officials. Some 20,000 outlets of the category 7A TERA , as well as almost 1000 km of 1000MHz category 7A TERA cabling were installed to put the connectivity and network in framework of the new freshly build system, which keeps Vodafone's whole regional Italian employees. Most modern IT infrastructure was urgently needed to cover all regular business and entrepreneurial activities and provides working connectivity for several thousand employees in compenis, call centers, disparate places thru the huge proprietary campus, also ensuring telepresence and conferencing for a 400-seat hall for international events. The IT platform and dedicated infrastructure to ensure the platform for this massive step ahead was the result of leadership from Vodafone's IT and VoIP network ops manager Marco Lavia,. He explained a future-proof concept of a cabling solution, as the means of the putting the brand new IT network cabling sufficient to support Vodafone's IT initiatives in the future. As he stated, "Being confident, that we desired to implement a platform with the good endurance, Siemon's completely standards and regulations compliant category 7A product, named TERA, with its extended predicted lifecycle, was the apparent selection to boost our expected ROI." Vodafone has deployed TERA's cable sharing features, which makes one cable to support up to four individual Single-pair or Double-pair data or VoIP processing engines to a unified regional outlet. As stated Vodafone officials, this product has proved extremely operationally convenient within the call center platforms, where VoIP telephones are in dynamic use. "Current single TERA outlet works for two VoIP telephones (two-paired services) across 2-pair hybrid attached cords, thus minimizing the amount of built outlets by impressive 15 per cent," continued Marco Lavia. "Minimal amount of cable patches means better efficiency of deployed pathways and more protection to the environment." Within the office environment, regular 4-pair cords are used, making Vodafone to use all the benefits of a future 10Gb/s traffic. Having more than 20,000 outlets deployed, Vodafone was extremely anxious about the port density, and in order to resolve this challenge, Siemon worked out a format of innovative and unprecedented RJ45-style patch cords represented in a Blade Patch design. Such kind of cording can be attached and removed without the cumbersome operations with the external latch and do not need much 'finger space' for particular patch cords, thus completely resolving density issues.
