The New HD Flex Fiber Cabling System… Making Fiber Connectivity Easier to Manage
Reshaping the Traditional High-Density Fiber Enclosure
The system marries a high-density enclosure to optimize data center space, with innovative cable management, making the HD Flex Fiber Cabling System the most serviceable and manageable on the market today.
- Easy access to connections from front or rear of cabinet.
- Each half of the split tray operates independently, minimizing disruptions.
- Allows easy access to connections on rear of enclosure, with cables routed to the side instead of the back.
Why It’s Better
- Adaptable between 6 and 12-port configurations
- Amplify space and minimize costs
- Ultimate freedom and flexibility to use anywhere
- Front and back access allows infrastructure MACs without disturbing adjacent connections
- Split tray operates independently, protecting connections from disruption meaning increased uptime and reliability
- Deployment made easy!
Drawers slide out into locked positions for easy MACs, and house cassettes and FAPs, trunks, connectors, and patch cords. Available in 1-RU, 2-RU, and 4-RU and 1-RU options, and can be reconfigured
to accept 6-port or 12-port, cassettes or adapter panels.
Pre-terminated PanMPO™ Trunk Cable Assemblies allow rapid gender and polarity changes in the field for standards-compliant cable plant migration from 10G Ethernet to 40G/100G Ethernet. Available
in multimode or singlemode, 12-fiber, 24-fiber, and 48-fiber assemblies.
Available with Push-Pull LC Duplex or MPO Interconnects, in a variety of jacket, cable, and fiber types to meet any application.
The Split-Tray Helps Eliminate Circuit Disruptions
Front and Back Cassette Accessibility. Cassettes can be installed from the front or the back of the enclosure. With a split-tray design, described on the following page, they simply slide in and are locked into place. This not only speeds serviceability and deployment, but also streamlines migrations from 10G Ethernet to 40G/ 50G/100G Ethernet, when cassettes are replaced with fiber adapter panels.
Accessibility = Serviceability = Flexibility
Cassettes install easily from the front or the back to speed serviceability and deployment. The lift-out design of the cassettes means patch cords can stay in place, limiting disruptions. The unique split tray feature allows each half of the tray to be pulled out independently, decreasing the likelihood that connections will be disrupted.
10G to 40G/50G/100G Migration
Cassettes are easily switched to fiber adapter panels when it is time to migrate to 40G, 50G or 100G. When paired with the PanMPO Fiber Connector, migration to higher data speeds becomes a snap.
Cable Management – Innovative cable management sets the HD Flex™ System apart from the competition. The rear trunk cable manager and plate provides a template for mounting of cables and side cable managers direct
cable away from the rear of the enclosure, allowing easy access to critical connections.
