To provide network visibility and security from data centre to desktop
TE Connectivity, a provider of network communications services, has unveiled QUAREO technology, which delivers the capability to electronically trace, monitor and authenticate every connection from the data centre to the desktop.
The new QUAREO connectors have an advanced chip technology that provides a unique "connection point identification" that records the real-time status of each fiber and copper connection point and its entire cabling pathway into a global database for access by upstream network management systems.
In addition, the offerings end-to-end network ecosystem manages configuration, information security, change management, physical security, asset management, performance, IT service continuity, risk management, and disaster recovery, said the company.
TE enterprise networks business senior vice-president and general manager Stephen Mitchell said the ability to query, view and manage Layer 1 in a manner that is integrated with current network management policies has not been possible with existing network management offerings that can only monitor, control and secure Layers 2 through 7.
"QUAREO technology shatters the barrier between Layer 1 and Layer 2, enables new, innovative applications and helps reduce network operating expense," Mitchell said.
Further, the QUAREO technology eliminates the need to manually ‘tone’ or ‘tag’ millions of miles of cables from large data centres to users’ desktops, saving man-hours inside data centres, server barns, hosting hotels, and offices worldwide.
