New data center infrastructure for Mobiltel

Customer: Mobiltel EAD (Mtel), Sofia, Bulgaria
Project: Upgrade of data center infrastructure, 2015.
Application: OM3 cabling, MPO and LC connectivity

To ensure further successful development and fulfill increasing customer requirements, Mobiltel required a new FO infrastructure in its data centers. This made it necessary to upgrade to category OM3 and MPO or LC connectivity to enable higher density in the patch panels and more efficient data transmission. The modernization and upgrade of the infrastructure was to take place in existing buildings. And that required corresponding adaptability of the cabling solution.

The Mobiltel specialists opted for connectivity from R&M. Product quality, port density in the racks, short delivery times and expert advice by a local R&M team were all compelling arguments. The specialists were able to see the outstanding R&M FO technology for themselves in the local R&M facility in Sofia.

The solution basically comprises:

  • 3U global racks and UniRack2 patch panels
  • MPO/MTP modules and LC-Duplex with OM3 fiber optics
  • OM3 trunk cables

Mobiltel now has data center infrastructure that provides plenty of scope for future developments: It is simple to migrate to 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet when required.
