Global network infrastructure specialist Siemon (Watertown, CT) has announced the release of its new Fiber Splicing Enclosure (FSE). The product is the latest addition to Siemon’s fusion and mechanical fiber splicing product line and is designed to offer flexibility and support for current and future fiber termination requirements.

The manufacturer contends that "whether the application is in a meet-me room within a data center or a building entrance facility, the Fiber Splicing Enclosure offers one of the highest fiber densities in the industry with a capacity of 1,728 fibers in a 5U footprint." The new enclosure can handle common, incoming high fiber count ribbon fiber cables of 864 and 1728 fibers that are transitioning to lower count cables within the building or data center.

Per Siemon:

The Fiber Splicing Enclosure has been designed to provide robust storage and protection of fiber splices in individually accessible splice trays.
The 5U unit can be rack mounted in either 19- or 23-inch equipment racks or cabinets and is ideal for handling the transition of outdoor to indoor fiber-optic cable at the building entrance, or for dismounting high fiber counts to multiple lower fiber count cables.
Each splice tray can support up to (12) 12-fiber ribbon splices in protective sleeves or (24) 250/900 um single splices, and the enclosure can house up to 12 trays for a maximum of 1,728 ribbon fibers or 288 single splices.

Siemon notes that the enclosure features a uniquely designed front panel, allowing for easy access to the splicing environment; this wide-open area gives the technician ample space to complete their individual or mass fusion splices.

The enclosure also benefits from open sides and sliding trays, providing easy access for cable routing and splice trays, enabling splicing outside of the enclosure and simplifying moves, adds and changes. Brush guard cable entry points with cable strain relief brackets facilitate loading and retention, while minimizing stress upon the fibers.

“With our new 5U Fiber Splicing Enclosure, we have a solution that provides Siemon’s famous levels of quality in a cost-effective footprint,” contends Tony Walker, Siemon's fiber product marketing manager. “It complements the existing range of fiber splicing solutions that we offer, and has been designed with the technician’s needs in mind, providing a high capacity option for fiber splicing while also delivering the accessibility and manageability needed for today’s patching environments.”
