White Space - Huber + Suhner





Structured cabling enables you to make the most out of your white space through straightforward and high-density fibre cable management. Our pre-selected cabling solutions maximise the performance of your set-up and save you time through easy installation and reduced maintenance needs. Our versatile and scalable solutions are ready for direct deployment into your white space. You will be able to set up a hassle-free and efficient cloud infrastructure, secure the efficiency of your investment and set your system up for growth, all while focusing on your core business. 



Within our data centre portfolio, we offer solutions specifically developed for structured cabling in your white space. By deploying our fibre management solutions into your dedicated white space, you enable a simple, stable and upgradeable physical layer that lasts. The white space of a data centre refers to the area that holds the tenants' IT hardware. Grey space, in turn, is the area reserved for supporting engineering infrastructure. Customers manage cabling in the Zone Distribution Area (ZDA). The data centre operator then takes overall responsibility for the backbone cabling and connections into the ZDA. Carriers and dark fibre providers install their cables within the Meet-Me Room (MMR) or Building Entrance Facility (BEF). 



  • Optimise your space  - Make the most out of your white space with high-density cable management solutions that keep your white space neat and organised. 
  • Boost performance - Improve the performance of your system by deploying simple solutions that are easy to maintain and manage. 
  • Hassle free-procurement -  Benefit from our one-stop-shop offering for cable management solutions and set up your white space with the right cabling from the get-go. 


Elements needed to set up structured cabling in your white space:

Modules and panels:

Modules are needed to build permanent links between racks. They provide adapter interfaces to the end of the cables which connect the modules. Patch panels are enclosures for modules of different sizes and numbers. Typically they are mounted on the top of the racks. 



Your structured cabling setup has to match the specifications of the transceivers in your system (type of connector, single mode or multimode and operating distance). The main distinction is between duplex and parallel transceivers. 


Fibre optic cables:

Different types (length, number of fibres) of cables are used in the white space. They need to be spliced and are used together with splice modules to build links. 


MTP Pro jumpers 

To be used outside the rack with transition modules and patch modules to build links between frames. For extra strength and better fire protection, they are thicker than MTP Pro patch cords. 


Patch cords and assemblies 

Duplex assemblies are used inside racks for in-rack and direct connections and also together with patch modules to build links between racks. MTP Pro patch cords are used inside the racks. Harness cables connect parallel to 4 duplex transceivers and are used in direct-connect breakout applications scenarios inside the same rack. 



MTP Pro tools ensure compatibility and allow more cabling scenarios. Cleaning tools clean the end faces of fibres if needed.
