Upgrade to 40G / 100G Networks with High-Density Fiber Enclosures


1The migration to 40G/100G networks will drive a number of changes within the data center and pave the way for the ever-increasing bandwidth needs of cloud computing, web services and virtualized applications. At the top of the list of these changes is the considerable challenge of cabling and cable management in a high-density computing environment. As we know, the cable plant for 40G/100G is different from 10G networks, leading to an overabundance of fan-out cables with different legs and connectors to meet the needs of devices of varying speeds. Without some type of convenient patching solution, the result will be a cluster of cables that make it difficult to install, maintain and upgrade network equipment.

High-density fiber enclosures can connect different generations of equipment such as 10Gb, 40Gb and 100Gb in a simple panel-cassette system. No tools are required to install the cassette in the panel enclosure. Each cassette features factory terminated connectors that reduce the time and labor required of field connector terminations. In a word, high-density fiber enclosures can simplify cabling systems for your data center projects and make your fiber systems easy to order and easy to install.


How Does It Work?
There are 4 MTP HD cassettes loaded into a rack enclosure. It consolidates all the high-bandwidth connections to a single point. Then, you can simply patch the 40G MTP cables at the back and the standard LC cables to devices in the front of the cassette. Every MTP HD cassette is loaded with 12 LC duplex connector on the front side and 2 MTP-12 connector at the rear. Then the high-density fiber enclosure is loaded with 48 LC duplex (96 fibers) connector on the front side and 8 MTP-12 connector at the rear. As a result, you can achieve 320G in a 1 1RU rack mount, which provides the highest fiber densities and port counts in the industry contributing to maximizing rack space utilization and minimizing floor space. Without this solution, the IT staff would have to pull a new fan-out cable each time they needed a new connection. Modular cassettes allow you to expand as you need to accommodate the necessary bandwidth and connectors.


FS.COM High-Density Fiber Enclosure Solution is ideal  for consolidating dozens of fiber cable runs into an easy and manageable, high-density, patching system. It’s easy to manage, easy to grow as your needs expand, and most importantly, easy to convert when you add 40/100G switches, giving you the flexibility to adapt as your technology changes.

Several Fiber Adapter Panels

Fiber Adapter Panel is used for patching fiber cable to the termination enclosure like fiber wall cabinets, rack mount fiber cabinets or rack mount fiber shelf. It enables you to make quick and easy fiber patch panel connections as they can snap into the enclosures easily.

Fiber adapter panels are with different connection types, such as FC, SC, LC, ST, MTRJ and MTP. What’s more, there are unloaded and blank fiber adapter panels. Fiber adapter panels can be divided into single-mode and multimode, and fiber ranges from 6 to 360 in each panel. According to working ways, fiber adapter panels are divided into simplex and duplex. FiberStore Fiber adapter panels have the features as following.

. Loaded with FC, SC, LC, ST, MTRJ and unloaded blanks
. Simplex and duplex (3-pack, 4-pack, 6-pack, 8-pack or 12-pack)
. Metal, Plastic, or Ceramic sleeves
. Ideal for 6-fibers, 8-fibers, 12-fibers, 24-fibers and 72-fibers applications
. Compatiable with all ICC’s rack, wall mount fiber enclousures and fiber patch panels
. LC and SC adapter housing colors follow the TIA/EIA-568-C.3 suggested color identification scheme.
