Data centre solutions
At Salumanus Ltd, we have over 20 years of experience in delivering efficient and cost-effective data centre solutions to help businesses remain competitive and secure.
Information services have permeated society and commerce, with data centres playing a vital role in supporting business applications and protecting companies’ most precious asset — information.
As the size and number of companies choosing to host their information at data centres grows, the demand for stronger capabilities, high speed and higher bandwidth increases too. Data centres need to be equipped to respond to the connectivity requirements of a small enterprise but also those of a multinational company.
Companies are not only looking for data storage capabilities, but for full-scale connectivity and disaster recovery services. We are able to support enterprises throughout the whole process using cost effective solutions, ranging from muxponders and transponders, DWDM technology and our broad range of optical transceivers.
Data centre interconnect
Spreading the data over a few data centres is a good strategy to increase security. To do that, we provide a reliable and cost-effective data centre interconnect (DCI) package. Data Centre Interconnect is a technology to connect data centres over short, medium and long distances with the use of packet-optical connection.
Using Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) equipment, data centres can virtually multiply their existing fiber backbone infrastructures, meet their customers’ demands for bandwidth and speed and interconnect over large distances.
DWDM and CWDM
Nowadays, the two main WDM variants, Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) and Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technologies, are widely used.
The main function of WDM systems is collecting a variety of data streams and transmitting them over a single optical fibre, each on a separate wavelength. Depending on the technology applied, we can transport 96 or more independent transmission channels where the capacity of a single channel may equal 200Gbps or more. A great advantage of WDM systems is their scalability, understood not only as the ability to support additional channels, but also as aggregation of lower bit rates to a single lambda with the use of muxponders working in Layer 1.
WDM technology gives you the opportunity to optimise the leasing cost of optical fibres on the one hand, and maximise the profit from your optical network infrastructure on the other.
The role of muxponders
A company’s DCI strategy can be strengthened by high-capacity muxponders. At Salumanus Ltd we offer a wide range of muxponders for all your applications, manufactured in house by our brand, GBC Photonics, or by our experienced partner PacketLight Network. You can find out more about them on our products page.
The last requirement for a solid DCI strategy is adding optical transceivers. SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) optical transceivers are mainly used in Ethernet standard and enable data transmission up to 1.25 Gbit/s. They are available in both single mode and multimode type and transmit data over a pair of optical fibres (duplex) or over a single optical fibre (simplex), and also in CWDM/DWDM technology.
By installing a transportation solution directly in such devices, users can eliminate additional hardware and significantly lower the costs of implementation and network maintenance.
Modern data centres require modern and advanced solutions. They are no longer seen as just locations for storing data, but increasingly as a viable solution for scaling up businesses and improving customer satisfaction by offering them secure and easy access to their data.
We want to help businesses achieve their connectivity goals using our expertise in telecommunications and data centre solutions. Our products are designed by leading equipment manufacturers and tested in our cutting-edge laboratories. We also offer pre- and after-sales technical support and sales and technical trainings for prospective end-users.
