LAS VEGAS, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GARTNER Data Center Conference 2015 -- CABLExpress announced today from the Gartner Data Center Conference the launch of three fiber optic modules, which are compatible with Arista Networks (Arista) and Brocade solutions. The modules are ideal for port replication and enable improved efficiency in the data center, allowing organizations to maximize their technology infrastructure investments.

"The benefit of these modules is that they allow both Arista and Brocade users to replicate the existing footprint in their data centers, providing increased efficiency and easier cable management," said Peter Belyea, president of CXtec, the parent company of CABLExpress. "In addition, organizations that are in the process of migrating to higher speeds can maintain their current infrastructure where it makes sense and still effectively communicate with all devices."

The new modules are part of the CABLExpress Skinny-Trunk Solution, a high-density fiber optic cabling system:

The Skinny-Trunk modules are the latest in port replication products that CABLExpress has developed to help address the cable management issues and potential for downtime that arise due to higher bandwidth demands and increasing fiber optic port counts. CABLExpress also introduced its 10U 8-slot fiber optic enclosures earlier this year.
