TE Connectivity Storage Area Management (SAM) System

TE Connectivity SAM System header

TE Connectivity's Storage Area Management (SAM) System can help data center managers and IT professionals optimize network performance and reduce the complexity of their data center environment. SAM's high-density cable management transforms data center cable clutter into an efficient, streamlined, eco-friendly network infrastructure. SAM delivers operational efficiency to Storage Area Network (SAN) cabling and helps de-clutter racks for a highly organized, eco-friendly network infrastructure.

SAM reduces the bulkiness of cabling and connectors in the data center by up to 80 percent and enables high-density deployment with fewer costly cabinet or infrastructure upgrades. SAM also saves time, reduces costs, maximizes efficiency, and opens up much needed space in a data center. It takes the complexity out of cable management and optimizes the performance of data center floor space, racks and electronics.

SAM can reduce the physical space requirements of SAN cabling by:

  • Managing up to 768 fiber ports within 2 rack units
  • Minimizing footprint – no additional front vertical, side, or horizontal cable management devices
  • Deploying in narrow cabinets or racks and limited space environments
  • Minimizing cable mass and slack management using linecard-optimized hydra assemblies
