Legrand Data Communications and Fiber Mountain™: A Worthwhile Partnership (for many reasons)

Monday, February 27, 2017

A few months ago, Legrand  announced a partnership with Fiber Mountain, Inc., the Glass Core™ Company and provider of transformative software-defined networking (SDN) managed fiber connectivity for enterprise and colocation data centers.

 

This partnership allows Legrand to offer the Intelligent Cross Connect, providing our customers with a software-managed fiber connectivity layer with Legrand’s extensive range of fiber cabling and connectivity solutions.

 

The Intelligent Cross Connect provides a virtual connectivity fabric that enables dynamic layer 1 network switching, which, when used in conjunction with switch and router networks, provides the highest level of network control.

 

We’re already integrating the Intelligent Cross Connect into our Connected Infrastructure solutions to deliver dynamic and managed fiber connections to complement Legrand’s current data center offerings.

 

Why software based management? It delivers the ultimate in terms of:

  • Scalability
  • Error-proofing
  • Remote real-time visibility and monitoring
  • Automated network re-configurability
  • Remote network management
  • Optimized power and cooling for switching equipment

 

We expect these data center infrastructure connectivity offerings to provide significant benefits, including:

  • CAPEX/OPEX savings
  • Reducing or eliminating human errors
  • Reducing labor costs
  • Enhancing asset management
