See how to connect a data center spine-leaf fiber link with Leviton. This walkthrough video covers solutions from patching at the core switches to end-of-row patching using Opt-X HDX connectivity and pre-terminated fiber cabling.
A spine-leaf network architecture features multiple connections between interconnection switches (spine switches) and access switches (leaf switches) to support high-performance computer clustering. In addition to flattening and scaling out Layer 2 networks at the edge, it also creates a nonblocking, low-latency fabric.
Look to Leviton for an ideal cabling infrastructure for spine-leaf designs. Our Opt-XTM HDX connectivity platform, including cassettes, enclosures, and fiber distribution frame — along with Leviton trunk cables and patch cords — provide pre-terminated solutions for simple deployment and manageability, while creating an ideal migration path for handling future data center tech refreshes.
This system makes it easy to migrate to 100, 200 and 400 G/bs networks to speed tech refreshes, reduce labor and minimize network downtime.
