Belden is bullish in its view of the colocation market. They’re seeing customers investing in both existing facilities as well as new campuses. Belden’s goal is to provide support for colocation providers as they try to meet increasing customer demands for speed and bandwidth. The company’s vast infrastructure networking experience allows them to evaluate various options for the clients and advise them on the best path forward.

“We are seeing more clients building a single mode backbone, trying to future prove their network and wanting to make sure that what they're building now is going to be still relevant in 5 to 10 years. And they're going to be able to cope with the next generation of the great switches that our active OEM counterparts are working on.” Denis Blouin, Field Application Engineer, Belden
