EDGE8™ Solutions Make the Future Accessible


Corning EDGE™ solutions were the industry’s first preterminated optical cabling systems specifically designed for the data centre environment, and the value that EDGE provides to the industry continues to be proven. Density, network uptime, speed, simplicity and a clear migration path to meet future requirements … EDGE addresses it all. However, technology roadmaps clearly indicate that transmission speeds ranging from 4G to 400G will be based on either 2- or 8-fibre connectivity solutions.

That’s the motivation behind EDGE8™ solutions. All the value of our original EDGE solutions, with the added superior network scalability, improved link performance and 100 % fibre utilisation of a base-8 design.

EDGE8 solutions features and benefits:

EDGE8 solutions strengthen your data centre in 3 key areas:

EDGE8™ Solutions Make the Future Accessible image
  • Increased asset utilisation, with reduced jumper complexity and the elimination of stranded cabling assets.
  • Technology adoption due to 100 % fibre utilisation without the need for conversion modules, which leads to cost and loss savings.
  • Risk avoidance, providing a simple path to 40G, 100G and even 400G.

Infinite Possibilities


How can you get your data centre to 40, 100 or 400G?

Technology roadmaps tell us that 40, 100 and even 400G transmission speeds will be based on either 2- or 8-fibre connectivity solutions, so make sure your data centre infrastructure is ready. EDGE8™ solutions utilise a base-8 design so you can be assured that your network is prepared for future innovation.


Limited time to complete your data centre deployment?

When deployment speed is essential, our preterminated EDGE™ solutions are the answer. The tool-less installation makes EDGE solutions 90 percent faster to install compared to field terminating. And with the superior fibre access and intuitive fibre management, moves, adds and changes have never been easier


Looking to reduce waste, loss and complexity in your data centre?

By utilising a base-8 design, EDGE8™ solutions eliminate stranded (or hanging) fibre assets. Optimised port breakouts and harness mapping yields 100 percent asset utilisation. Additionally, EDGE8 trunks are pinned for a single pinless patch cable deployment for all installations, which reduces stocking and deployment complexity.


Can you keep up with increasing transmission speeds?

For your business to remain competitive, your data centre has to keep up with ever-increasing transmission speeds. Make sure your infrastructure is up to the challenge. By installing a base-8 solution, you have a simple migration path to transmission speeds up to 400G. And the preconnectorized EDGE8™ solution offers best-in-class density that is easy to install and manage for future growth.
