Siemon's 4U LightStack optimises high density data centres
April - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has launched a 4U version of its LightStack™ ultra high density fibre system to house 576 LC fibre or 3456 MTP fibres in just four rack units of space while ensuring superior port access, cable management and fast, seamless migration to advanced 40 and 100 gigabit applications.
Part of Siemon's LightHouse™ advanced fibre optic cabling solutions, LightStack 4U is an innovative rack-mount enclosure with revolutionary horizontal cable management that handles both traditional and uni-tube jumpers and features easy-unlatch, swing-open management clips for full access to the jumpers. Swivel trunk cable tie-down points on the rear of the enclosure maintain proper bend radius, while sliding trays offer all-around better access than any other high-density fibre enclosure on the market. Modules are easily inserted or removed from either the front or rear of the enclosure, and the visually appealing easy-open magnetic door eliminates harmful pinch points and offers high-visibility drop-down labelling.
"Our 1U LightStack ultra high density fibre system is extremely popular among today's high-density data centres that require easy access and management of high density fibre connectivity with the capability to easily migrate from 10 to 40 and 100 gigabit speeds," says Charlie Maynard, fibre optic product manager at Siemon's global headquarters. "Our latest 4U version simplifies installation for high fibre count environments by supporting four times the density in a single enclosure while maintaining the best-in-class LightStack features that help data centres overcome current and future fibre connectivity challenges."
The LightStack ultra high density fibre system includes ultra-slim LightStack low-loss 0.35dB LC-to-MTP modules, 0.2dB MTP pass-through adapters that are fully ready to support 40 and 100 gigabit applications, and 12-fibre LC pass-through adapter plates for current 10 gigabit Ethernet or fibre channel SAN applications. Ideal for backbone and SAN applications, the system also includes trunk cables, including MTP trunk cables and LC-to-MTP hybrid trunk cables available in staggered lengths for connecting a variety of active equipment to interconnects or cross connects.
