Procyon™ by OCC® offers a complete system approach to data center design and connectivity
Products include data center cabinets, copper and fiber panels with cable management, high-density fiber cassettes and more.
(Virtual Press Office) Optical Cable Corporation (OCC®) is proud to showcase Procyon™, a complete system approach to data center design and connectivity at the 2012 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition. The Procyon family of structured cabling products features industry-leading performance, density, accessibility and cable management features designed for use in many applications, including data centers.
"Our engineering team worked alongside IT professionals, data center installers and structured cable professionals, gathering information and listening to challenges about everything from power distribution to cable management to thermal cooling," said Dr. Ian Timmins, Director of Engineering. "From those conversations, we've learned what customers want; what works – and what doesn't - and put that knowledge to work developing OCC's next generation of structured cabling products. The result of this unified and comprehensive approach to product design is Procyon."
"The Procyon family of products offer a complete system approach that is rarely seen in the industry," added Timmins. "We didn't just create a single component. We developed a system that allows a single component to work better when combined with corresponding components, as well as on its own. When combined with OCC's full system; performance, functionality and versatility surpass all expectations."
"Procyon systems are designed for pre-configuration," said Stephen Porach, Manager, Business Development-Enterprise Solutions. "Plug-and-play is even easier for IT professionals when they can simply pull together all the components needed for installation."
"Procyon offers unprecedented integration of essential features and the highest density per rack unit on the market, clearly differentiating it from products offered by other manufacturers," concludes Timmins. "Others may have high-density, but lack effective cable management; or they may have cable management covered, but don't have the density or port count available with OCC products. With OCC, you get it all."
