Real Time Tracking of Optical Cabling using RFID

McReynolds, Alan; Robinson, Ian; Connors, Tim; Tourrilhes, Jean


Keyword(s): cable; RFID; location

Abstract: Managing cable infrastructure within a data center is an important and difficult task. The ability to locate cables and, more importantly, their interconnections would be very helpful. The extremely dense packing and wide variety of connector designs makes it difficult to provide an all encompassing tracking solution. We have addressed this problem through tagging cable ends with generic RFID tags and the development of a fine grain RFID location system. This location system uses several novel designs to support industry standard cable densities of as many as 48 cables ends per 1U slot.
