Megladon intros Bit Error Rate certified 10 Gigabit fiber assemblies
Megladon Manufacturing Group announced the release of its Bit Error Rate tested and certified 10GIG HLC fiber patch cables.
Austin, Texas -- Megladon Manufacturing Group announced the release of its Bit Error Rate tested and certified 10GIG HLC fiber patch cables. This product line ships with an eye diagram and Bit Error Rate test data which enables the installer to deploy with confidence, says the company.
It is the company's contention that, as the migration to 10 Gigabit Ethernet continues in fiber optic networks, installers and maintenance personnel may feel challenged when they realize a percentage of the laser optimized fiber optic patch cables ordered either have a high bit error rate when mated or develop intermittent issues in a short period of time. What may not be known is that many products sold as “10GIG patch cables” are not bit error rate tested using an actual 10GIG signal, claims Megladon. Instead, the standard insertion loss performance is often considered the pass/fail criteria. This does not guarantee an acceptable bit error rate.
“The market has been taught that any multimode fiber patch cable with an aqua jacket will perform in a 10GIG system. The truth is the glass is designed for such a system but the finished patch cable has not been tested with a bit error rate tester. We have not found one manufacturer that will provide bit error rate data with the product. That changed today,” stated John Culbert, president of Megladon.
Megladon says that its HLC SCRATCHGUARD connection technology is known for its durability and repeatable performance, enabling business critical applications to operate with minimal connectivity issues. The repeatability of the cables' Hardened Lens technology and its properties also allows Megladon to bit error rate test and certify the terminated product with an extremely high first pass yield, added Culbert.
