Siemon Launches the VersaPOD 4-Post Network and Data Centre Rack

VersaPOD 4-Post Network and Data Center Rack System

Siemon, the network infrastructure specialist, today introduced its VersaPOD 4-Post Rack, a new, adjustable-depth, 4-post rack system. Rapidly deployable, the VersaPOD 4-Post Rack integrates with the same innovative high density, space saving, Zero-U vertical patching and cable management as offered with Siemon's popular VersaPOD data centre cabinet.

VersaPOD 4-Post Rack can be assembled on site in less than 20 minutes to provide a stable platform for mounting extended depth active equipment and efficiently managing high-density cabling in both data centres and telecommunications rooms.

The VersaPOD 4-Post Rack's headers, 45U vertical rails and depth adjustment brackets all feature symmetrical designs to eliminate orientation errors during assembly. This design also self-squares the rack, saving valuable installation time.

VersaPOD 4-Post Rack is compatible with Siemon's Zero U vertical patch panels (VPP) for support of copper and fibre patching, providing up to 24U of Zero-U vertical patching space between each set of bayed racks, or 16U along both sides of a single rack.

Siemon's Zero-U and existing VPC and RS-CNL vertical cable management channels also integrate with the VersaPOD 4-Post Rack. Mounted between multiple racks or alongside standalone racks, these user-friendly vertical cable management options provide a high capacity, easily accessible and concealable cable pathway solution also referred to as 'cable highways' or 'zones'. By moving cabling out of congested equipment mounting areas and into dedicated cabling zones, air flow is improved for more efficient thermal management.

Explaining the applications for the VersaPOD 4-Post Rack, marketing manager Graeme Stoker commented, "This system delivers unique benefits in the data centre and the telecommunications room alike: By utilising the rack's Zero-U patching and cable management capabilities, more equipment mounting spaces are created without the need for additional racks. For example, baying two 4-Post Racks together creates an additional 40U of combined mounting spaces, nearly equivalent to adding another rack, without the additional cost or space requirements. This ability to support higher density infrastructures and reduce the number of racks required also translates into future scalability."

The 2.1m by 560mm (7 foot by 22 inch) wide rack features 45U of standard 19 inch (480mm) mounting spaces and is depth-adjustable from 22-36 inches (560-915mm) in 1inch (25mm) increments to accommodate a wide range of equipment sizes. The VersaPOD 4-Post Rack's all-steel construction utilises inward-facing header and footer bars to minimise floor space consumption, while maintaining full load capabilities and offers eight ground post locations for simple, secure installation.
