Fiber modules have 0.4-dB insertion loss

CABLExpress says its low-loss MTP-to-LC modules improve data center performance immediately and for the long term.

CABLExpress has announced that its fiber-optic modules - including the MTP-to-LC modules in its Skinny-Trunk H Series and its RSD Series fiber enclosures - now have 0.4-dB insertion loss. "At 0.4-dB loss, CABLExpress modules allow customers to follow the TIA-942 design standard while keeping up with increasing network demands," the company said when announcing this new performance level for its products.

The company's president, Peter E. Belyea, said, "Not only does it immediately improve data center performance, but it also futureproofs our customers' data centers through multiple generations of hardware upgrades," adding that, "CABLExpress will continue to push the envelope in lowering the insertion loss of Skinny-Trunk products."

CABLExpress says its Skinny-Trunk H-Series Enclosure is ideal for condensed fiber applications and is available in both vertical and horizontal 1U, 4U, 6U and 10U mounting configurations. The RSD Series fiber enclosure is manufactured for structured cabling environments and open racks in telecom rooms, and is available in 1U, 2U and 4U. It comes with recessed sliding drawers for convenient access.
