On April 13, global network infrastructure specialist the Siemon Company announced the official release of its LightVerse High-Density Fiber Optic Cabling System, designed to improve fiber network performance, manageability, scalability, and flexibility in data center and LAN environments.
Engineered with a range of sleek enclosures and panels available, the company says the LightVerse system is "specifically designed to address today’s fiber installation challenges, while also providing a robust, quality foundation for evolving network requirements."
Available in 1U Core and Plus versions, and 1U, 2U, or 4U Pro versions geared to support a wide variety of applications, the LightVerse platform supports up to 96 fiber terminations in a single rack unit for any termination method, including pre-terminated, field terminated, and splice-terminated fiber deployments.
According to the manufacturer, the system’s wide array of transition modules, pass-through adapters, pre-loaded enclosed splice cassettes, and stackable translucent splice trays support unique network needs and multiple connector types, including LC, shuttered LC, MTP, SC, ST and FC interfaces.
Key features including integrated front and optional rear cable managers, cable strain relief brackets that can be mounted in different locations, and multiple cable entry points facilitate flexible design and installation options with maximum fiber manageability and protection.
Further, the LightVerse system's front- and rear-accessed high-contrast sliding tray and integrated label holder, which can be accessed when the door is closed, ensure easy access, inspection, and administration of critical fiber connections.
Siemon stated that the LightVerse enclosures and panels "have been designed with the user in mind, and as a result they can easily be installed by one person allowing easier and quick rollouts and moves, adds and changes."
Available with ultra low loss connectivity and support for multiple industry-recognized polarity schemes, the LightVerse modules and adapter plates combine with Siemon’s line of Plug and Play trunks, traditional LC duplex jumpers, and LC BladePatch fiber jumpers to deliver an end-to-end ecosystem that the company contends unlocks the potential of high-density fiber installations.
Tony Walker, global fiber product marketing representative for Siemon, commented:
“With the ability to support transmission speeds to 400G and beyond for current, emerging, and future applications, fiber has become the dominant media in today’s data center and is continuing to increase in LAN backbone environments. At the same time, businesses today are highly focused on avoiding risk, improving operational efficiency, and staying agile and competitive in the digital age. Built upon more than 20 years of Siemon high-density fiber experience, the user-centric design of the new LightVerse system delivers the performance, quality and reliability customers and installers expect from Siemon solutions, while also providing the ideal solution for protecting network investments, delivering exceptional ease of installation and flexibility to scale at speed.”
While designed to deliver excellent performance and usability, the LightVerse enclosures are also aesthetically pleasing by design, said Siemon. The platform's molded scratch-resistant transparent front and rear doors with tamper resistant latching provides a world-class appearance, contends the company, while keeping critical connections secure.
