Tripp Lite has introduced two sets of OM3 fiber-optic jumpers. The N836 series facilitates mini-LC-to-LC connection, and the N838 series facilitates mini-LC-to-mini-LC connection.
Tripp Lite says the cables are suitable for use with high-speed applications using mini-SFP transceivers, such as the Brocade FC8-64 High-Density 64-port Fibre Channel blade. The jumpers are available in five lengths, ranging from 1 to 10 meters.
David Posner, product manager with Tripp Lite, said, "Many networking hardware manufacturers will be deploying mini-LC connections in their equipment, allowing higher port counts in less rack space. Tripp Lite mini-LC fiber cables are available in a variety of stock lengths, as well as custom configurations, to allow our customers to maximize this new technology."
