March 2011– Siemon, a global leader in network infrastructure, has announced the addition of several new OM4 fibre optic products to its comprehensive line of high-performance cabling solutions.
Siemon’s new OM4 Plug and Play fibre cable assemblies, pre-terminated duplex trunking cables and traditional field-terminated cable and connectivity provide an extended distance multimode option for 10Gb/s as well future-proof migration options for 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s application speeds.
“Over the past few years, we have built our OM4 product set and experience by developing and deploying Siemon OM4 systems globally on a customer-specific basis,” said Charlie Maynard, Siemon fibre optic product manager. “During this time we used customer feedback to refine and expand the product family. With the strength of our current OM4 offering, along with a clearer global OM4 standards picture from ISO and TIA, we knew the time was right to offer the Siemon OM4 solution set on a widespread global basis.”
Siemon’s enhanced OM4 Plug and Play system’s modules and adapters are supported by a wide array of factory-terminated cable assemblies that combine Siemon’s reduced-diameter RazorCore cable with 12-fibre MTP connectors.
These 40Gb/s or 100Gb/s-ready MTP-to-MTP cable assemblies can be ordered in custom lengths and are designed to be quickly pulled and connected to Plug and Play modules or MTP adapter plates. Available in 12 to 144 fibre counts in increments of 12 fibres, these assemblies are user-configurable to precise application requirements.
Siemon’s factory terminated MTP-to-LC and LC-to-LC or SC-to-SC fibre trunking cable assemblies are also available in OM4 configurations. 10Gb/s MTP-to-LC assemblies allow multi-fibre MTP connectors to integrate with LC or SC interfaces in current network equipment while the LC-to-LC and SC-to-SC trunks provide high-performance 10Gb/s fibre links without the complexity and performance variability of field terminations.
These turnkey OM4 solutions allow high performance data centre links to be deployed 75% faster than traditional field terminations. Beyond installation speed, Siemon plug and play and pre-terminated trunking products provide a “greener” approach, eliminating the waste associated with additional connectors, termination kits and other consumables.
Siemon’s core OM4 fibre line also includes 10Gb/s indoor tight buffer distribution cable, indoor interlocking armour tight buffer cable, indoor-outdoor tight buffer and loose tube cable all available with LS0H jacket.
