Siemon launches 40/100G fibre cabling solutions

LONDON, July 23, 2015

Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has launched its 40/100G fibre cabling solutions that provide a fast, simple and economical upgrade path from 10-gigabit to 40 or 100-gigabit applications.

Part of Siemon’s LightHouse advanced fibre optic cabling solutions, the extended range includes a variety of equipment cords that will allow customers to maintain and fully utilise their existing Siemon Plug and Play enclosures and trunks for next generation 40/100-gigabit performance in network, server and storage applications, said a statement.

To connect MTP trunk backbone cabling to active equipment via Siemon’s Quick-Pack or ultra-high density LightStack MTP adapter plates that offer easy pass-through connectivity within Siemon’s fibre enclosures, the new 40/100G fibre cabling solutions include conversion cords that transition two 12-fibre MTP connectors to three eight-fibre MTP connectors, ensuring 100 per cent utilisation of the 12-fibre MTP backbone trunks, it said.

Charlie Maynard, fibre optic product manager at Siemon’s global headquarters, said: “Current 40-gigabit transmission and upcoming 100-gigabit transmission are both based on eight fibres, leaving 33 per cent of 12-fibre backbone trunks unused. Our conversion cords transition two 12-fibre MTP connectors to three 8-fibre MTP to prevent having unused fibre.

“Incorporating the conversion into the equipment cord is a more cost-effective, lower-loss option than purchasing and installing separate conversion cassettes that introduce extra mated pairs into the channel.”
The new 40/100G fibre cabling solutions also include single MTP jumpers, conversion cords that transition two 12-fibre MTPs to one 24-fibre MTP for use with current 100-gigabit channels based on 20 fibres, and LC to MTP four x 10G hybrid cords that transition one MTP to four duplex LC connectors for use with 40-gigabit applications based on aggregation of multiple 10-gigabit ports.
To upgrade from 10-gigabit to 40 and 100-gigabit applications, customers can simply swap out existing Siemon MTP to LC modules with the MTP adapter plates and then select the 40/100 equipment cords that best suits their application.

The cords have been made with Siemon’s smaller diameter RazorCore cable that will make it easier to access connections while reducing congestion in horizontal cable pathways for improved airflow around the equipment. - TradeArabia News Service
