Wirewerks: your trusted partner for Data Center Solutions

Data Center Solutions


Wirewerks systems and solutions are widely installed in a variety of data center environments

Our systems and solutions will benefit to Enterprise Data Centers, Internet Data Centers (Hosting), Multi-tenant (MTDCs) & Colocation (COLO) Data Centers, Edge Data Centers and SANs. Wirewerks fully supports ANSI/TIA-942-B Data Center Cabling Standards, and all Wirewerks products and systems recommended for Data Center installations comply with TIA-942-B requirements as well as applicable ANSI/TIA-568.x-D Series Component Standards.

Wirewerks believes that standards compliance creates open architecture networks that provide the best protection for your cabling system investment through interoperability, design flexibility, brand independence and forward compatibility with ever- evolving technologies.

Superior Data Center Solutions

While our commitment to industry standards is clear, we also believe that standards compliance should not limit customers to ‘cookie-cutter, me-too’ products, or restrict our drive to innovate beneficial new product features that ‘go beyond’ standards.

Wirewerks’ NextSTEP Technology™ fiber management system for data centers is a prime example of feature-rich innovation within a standards-compliant framework.

The NextSTEP fiber system meets all mandatory TIA-942-B requirements, and goes beyond those requirements — and the competition — with support for many of the new non- compulsory recommendations suggested in the standard.

A powerful example of this can be seen in NextSTEP’s modular architecture that fully satisfies TIA-942-B’s newly added recommendation for the “ability to insert and remove cords (fibers and fiber modules) without disrupting existing or adjacent connections”.

The NextSTEP fiber system’s ability to install/manage/repair fibers with little or no impact/ downtime on adjacent fibers (users) in high-density data center applications is a powerful competitive differentiator that is unique in the industry today.
