Wirewerks adds Base-8 fiber management elements
The company announced the addition of Base-8 members to its NextSTEP Technology Fiber Management System.
Wirewerks announced it has added Base-8 elements to its NextSTEP Technology Fiber Management System. The NextSTEP 3-Series Modules (3S Modules) are designed to enable simplified cable management installations and maintenance via a fast, tool-less, slide-in/slide-out installation process and easy front panel port access, says the company.
“We are thrilled to now offer NextSTEP 3-Series Modules as part of our NextSTEP Technology and extensive portfolio of optical fiber connectivity solutions,” comments Jais Cohen, president of Wirewerks. “Our proven technology represents the natural evolution of fiber management systems that combines fiber patching, distribution, splicing, C/D-WDM, and 40/100GbE MPO/MTP."
There are two 3S Modules now available:
- The NextSTEP 3-Series Distribution Module is a slide-in fiber management module for Base-8 requirements that supports one to three MPO connectors at the rear of the cassette and up to 24 front-facing LC ports per module.
- The NextSTEP 3-Series Loaded Patch Module houses incoming pre-terminated cable assemblies or provides fusion splicing for up to 24 LC or 12 SC ports on the front of each module. It enables up to 96 LC or 48 SC ports in 1RU.
The 3S Modules feature factory-terminated and -tested low-insertion-loss fiber connections with the customer’s choice of fiber and connector types.
"The 3S Modules continue to deliver simplicity, flexibility, scalability, and adaptability while accommodating the surging demand of data center, enterprise LAN, and broadband network applications," concludes Wirewerks' president Cohen. He adds, "These modules are changing the landscape of fiber connectivity management -- and Wirewerks is receiving outstanding feedback from a Tier 1 carrier."
