Corning Pretium Edge

LAN2235

At Vision Technologies, we have been helping commercial and federal clients drive business transformation with our award winning IT Services for over a decade. Leveraging our expertise, experience and certifications, we are now offering a data center solution that will take your business to the next level! Corning LANscape Pretium EDGE Solutions will help to increase your revenue, minimize risks, reduce your expenses and manage all of your information efficiently without fear of downtime.


The data center is the central hub of your optical network – transmitting, storing and protecting the information upon which your entire business relies. Vision provides end-to-end data center operations to migrate, process, maintain and meet your information processing needs.


The faster the network is installed, the faster it can start bringing in revenue. Vision Technologies can install the EDGE Solution 35% faster than traditional cabling systems, enabling the network to generate revenue faster than ever before. The reduction in installation time is due to the trunk cables featuring a newly designed pulling grip that can be routed faster and can be quickly removed when installation is complete. With a new and innovative hardware design, the EDGE modules can be installed by Vision Technologies in the front or rear of the housings, enabling our technicians to deploy the network in the fashion we find most efficient and from one cabinet row. Click here to find out even more about how quickly the solution can be installed.


LAN2236

Not only is the EDGE Solution quickly installed, it also enables you to manage moves, adds and changes (MACs) 25% faster to ensure the network stays up and running while simultaneously updating. This is due to the EDGE Solution including a truly unique hardware design with housings containing individually sliding trays (three trays per 1U of space) into which the modules are loaded. These individual trays make it easier and less time consuming to add trunk cables during MACs.


Because data centers are being tasked with managing more and more data, owners and operators are placing increasing importance on the equipment density. The EDGE Solutions feature industry–leading density with 100% more than current systems. The 4U housing can manage up to 576 fibers, while the 1U housing manages 96 fibers. The trunk cables are also 30% smaller in diameter and the jumpers are 50% smaller which means more cabled can be routed and stored in the same amount of space without interfering with the initial installation or MACs.


The requirements for data centers are always changing and evolving, and the EDGE Solution will meet the requirements of 100 G Ethernet when necessary, and universally wired components provide a simple upgrade path between two fiber and parallel optic applications.


Vision Technologies and the EDGE are the perfect solution for your data center needs. It is a revolutionary approach to network deployment and operation. With Vision Technologies installing your EDGE Solution, you can be sure that your network will overcome the challenges of today’s data center requirements while also preparing it for future growth.
