Tripp Lite’s Mini Robotic Fiber Panel Systems optimize network management

Nov. 23, 2020
Requiring only 7U of rack space, as opposed to the product line's original 10U models, the Mini Robotic Fiber systems are billed as a better fit for containerized data centers, edge computing and remote computing sites.

Power protection and connectivity expert Tripp Lite says its new Mini Robotic Fiber Panel Systems stand to revolutionize the process of fiber network management. The rack-mounted patch panels use remote control and automated robotic latching functions to reconfigure Layer 1 fiber connections.

Requiring only 7U of rack space, as opposed to the product line's original 10U models, the Mini Robotic Fiber systems are billed as a better fit for containerized data centers, edge computing and remote computing sites, as well as for larger installations that have limited fiber connections.

As contended by Tripp Lite:

[The] Mini Robotic Fiber Panel Systems regularly reconfigure up to 102 duplex fiber connections to help optimize network performance and reduce the amount of time spent manually making and breaking connections. Available in a singlemode fiber model or a multimode fiber model, these systems use robotic latching technology to perform connections in 15 seconds, compared to the hours or days it may take waiting for on-site support. In addition to reducing IT support costs and downtime, the systems can reconfigure under-utilized or over-utilized connections to maximize infrastructure value.

Key benefits of the Mini Robotic Fiber Panel Systems, as enumerated by Tripp Lite, include:

  • Automated reconfiguration of fiber connections to optimize network performance while minimizing engineering time.
  • Robotic latching technology which is faster and more precise than manual connection.
  • 7U rack-mount units to conveniently fit in small edge network installations.
  • Software interface provides remote control from nearly anywhere.
  • Scalability up to nearly 500,000 ports promotes future-proof flexibility.

“The Mini Robotic Fiber Panel Systems are a powerful tool for resolving network connection issues,” concludes David Posner, Vice President of Product Marketing, Connectivity, at Tripp Lite. “They’re also a way to make a growing bandwidth-on-demand service more manageable, and to get a higher rate of equipment usage. These systems help IT professionals simplify the way they manage their fiber networks.”
