FiberCon CrossCon®

Our patent for a structured data center infrastructure

As manufacturer of fiberoptic connection systems, FiberCon GmbH delivers innovative components for efficient data center operation. The new CrossCon® system is a highlight in this area, offering numerous advantages in structured data center cabling. The current norm for data center cabling, EN 50173-5, stipulates a structured topology with allocated local cabling and main distribution cabling. According to the norm, these divisions are to be realized with cross connects as patch distributors.

As integrated 19“ rack unit, the CrossCon® system enables standardized, structured, yet always flexible data center cabling. The system’s novel plugging scheme enables communication of every connected rack terminal with any other rack terminal of the complete cross connection scheme in the data center. Hence, after the implementation of the CrossCon® system every single connection of the connected rack is useable saving complex subsequent cabling as well as patching. The CrossCon® connection core shows its complete potential in scalability, particularly when applied in modern Gbps router topologies, such as fully crossed Spine-Leaf architectures.

Your CrossCon® advantages

  • The CrossCon® system can be adapted to your requirements at any time
  • Reduction of required fiberoptic rack connections
        • Cost reduction
        • Space optimization
        • Better heat dissipation in the cable duct 
  • Due to the full cross connection scheme, all fiberoptic rack connections are available without subsequent patching
  • Savings in time and costs for FO rack connections, as multi-fiber stub lines are laid once and do not need to be changed later
  • Cross connection structure is modular, comprehensive and, thus, inherently documentable
  • No complex subsequent re-wiring or patching
The CrossCon® was developed as fiberoptic connection system for standardized, structured, yet always flexible data center cabling. As integrated 19“ rack unit, the CrossCon® with its new plugging scheme for duplex data connections enables communication of every connected rack terminal with any other rack terminal of the complete cross connection scheme in the data center. This reduces the number of connections required for mutual communication of N rack terminals from N^2 single connections to N parallel connections.   
As single CrossCon® systems may be connected to each other in cascades, a subsequent implementation of new rack terminals is possible ad infinitum. This renders subsequent re-cabling and single-fiber patches obsolete. The CrossCon® connection core shows its complete potential in scalability, particularly when applied in modern Gbps router topologies, such as fully crossed Spine-Leaf architectures.   
The CrossCon® is a passive distribution system. The optical signal is not specifically converted into an electric signal.
