Indoor/outdoor breakout; ruggedized splicers
Suitable for harsh environments, these indoor/outdoor breakout fiber-optic cables features a UV- and fungal-resistant semi-pressure extruded outer jacket. According to the company, the jacket extrusion technology is designed to provide superior crush resistance, protecting a helically-stranded core of sub-units that measure 2.5 mm and feature a water-blockingaramid. These riser-listed cables are available in fiber counts from 2 to 12.
FSM-60 (pictured) and FSM-18 core alignment and fixed V-groove fusion splicers are designed to withstand a 30-inch drop test and continue splicing. Ruggedized construction includes shock, dust, and moisture resistance, while new software provides the ability to download splice data and video images to a PC. Other features include user-selectable fiber clamping, simultaneous battery charge and splicer operation, automatic arc calibration and fiber identification, and auto-start tube heater.
Data center cabling
For data center networks using Category 6 and 6A cabling, the SYSTIMAX InstaPATCH Cu solution includes pre-measured cable, pre-terminated connecting hardware, pre-placed source/destination labels, prepared port configuration, and pre-bundled cables. Each system is designed to meet a customer’s specific requirements. Harnesses and ports are tested to ensure that each component meets performance requirements. Source/destination label, pre-termination, and plug-to-plug capability are designed to significantly reduce installation time. The flexible harness system is available in assemblies ranging from 1 to 24 ports on each end, while a SwitchPack combines multiple plug ends (4, 6, 8, 12, or 16)into a single unit that can bequickly plugged into a high-density switch or server.
COMMSCOPE ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS
This shielded version of the Category 6 EX-RJ45 connector with snagless boot is designed to exceed TIA/EIA-568-B performance requirements. It is suited for high-speed residential, telecommunications, and broadband applications where outstanding insertion loss, near-end crosstalk, return loss, and equal level far end crosstalk are required. In addition to preventing cable retraction snags, the snagless boot provides an extended release mechanism for the connector, plus supplementary strain relief. Boots are installed before crimping and become permanently affixed to the connectors.

Braided copper trunk
CABLExpress braided copper trunks for data centers are designed to reduce installation time by up to 80%. These plug-and-play products can be ordered with “staggered” ends to reduce excess cable. Trunk lengths range from 10 to 295 feet in 1-foot increments, and can be designed with “breakout” lengths that can be ordered in 1-inch increments. The assemblies are designed with a snagless boot designed to reduce wear on Ethernet ports. Cables come labeled, with customizable labels available. In addition, high-density patch panels are available in 24-port 1U or 48-port 2U versions.
Thin Category 7A
The Uninet 7120 Category 7A cable has a wire diameter of 0.58 mm (AWG 23). In combination with high-performance connectors, this high-speed cable can be used for up to 1000 MHz, enabling transmission of 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It is suitable for applications involving digital and analog voice, images, multimedia, and data signals, and as a space-saving solution in data centers. Attenuation is less than 60 dB, and NEXT value is 90 dB.
Triple-play tester;fiber network monitor
The AXS-200/650 triple-play tester is designed for assessing the quality-of-service (QoS) of IP-based voice, video, and data services in FTTx installations. The tester provides dual Ethernet interfaces for full WAN-LAN analysis of IP-basedservices. IP layer connectivity testing can be performed via various methodologies, such as IP PING, FTP/HTTP downloading, and trace-route measurements. QoS metrics include media delivery index (MDI), program clock reference jitter, stream-rate metrics, bandwidth utilization, and IP metrics on multiple MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 media streams. Critical VoIP metrics can also be monitored to ensure quality IP-based voice services. Thistriple-play test solution provides automated suites with intuitive Pass/Fail analysis.
Fiber Guardian is a remotely controllable unit placed along an optical network for continuous monitoring and troubleshooting. This standalone test system lets you monitor critical fiberalong the network without the need of a client-server remote fiber test system. Auto-discovery and provisioning functions are designed for fast set-ups, since connected fibers are automaticallydetected and fault detection routines are automatically programmed. Through a secure, multi-user web interface, users can access this remote test unit to view results, fault logs, and other data.
Locking wall boxes
The X Series large-capacity locking wall boxes are available in three sizes and four different interior configurations. They include two locks, installation brackets, and cover with a cable pass-thru, and a choice of interior brackets. Covers are available in white or black.
