Wave2Wave Launches Robotic Cross-Connects for Data Centers PDF Print E-mail

Wave2Wave introduced two large robotic fiber switches to its ROME product family, ROME MAX and ROME MAX-T. Both switches offer large fiber port counts in a full rack configuration within a standard 19-inch footprint. This drives both efficiency and simplicity for data center operators and allows them to roll out Layer-0 automation using a plug-and-play approach.

With IoT, 5G, edge computing and the software-defined transformation of networks, fiber connectivity has become the nervous system of every data center and telco infrastructure. Automation of fiber management is critical for the networks to scale, evolve and become future-proof.

The ROME MAX series of products offer factory integrated or field-installed options to give the customer flexibility to maximize its space usage. ROME MAX is in a seven-foot tall rack, while ROME MAX-T extends to eight feet to provide the highest fiber count. This product series removes the complexity of installing and managing a CLOS design by building it into the solution.

"Robots are here, robots are in the data centers, and ROME will be a key evolutionary solution in today's transforming network," said David Wang, Founder and CEO of Wave2Wave. "Data center operators are constantly seeking new ways to differentiate themselves from the competition, whether that's by providing more timely service offerings, improving the accuracy of data center recordkeeping, or finding other innovative ways to help their customers grow. The latest additions to our ROME portfolio address these needs by speeding up and simplifying the way Layer-0 services are rolled out."

As with the entire ROME portfolio, the ROME MAX series provides standard APIs for network management software integration, allowing customers the ability to virtualize physical networks on a global scale. Layer-0 powered by software control extends automation to the physical network
