HUBER+SUHNER - High density fibre connectivity for the evolving SAN network
News Release from:
15 October 2010
Connectivity specialist HUBER+SUHNER has now incorporated 'plug & play' MTP connectivity to its class-leading LiSA Fibre Management System. The MTP 12 fibre and 24 fibre connectors allow high-density connections within the same footprint as a standard SC connector and can reduce installation and servicing times by up to 75%.
This trend towards higher density connections not only reflects the demand for higher bandwidth, but it also provides a manageable solution in otherwise over-congested blade servers. MTP jumper cables provide a link from the main LiSA cross-connect rack to the SAN Director and short MTP to LC fan-outs provide the final link to the SFP.
MPO/MTP connectivity is now being recommended by standardisation bodies for the first time and as datacenters migrate to 40G and even 100G transmission speeds, the need for a low-loss connection is critical. The MTP Elite combined with HUBER+SUHNER’s premium LC connector allows the overall link loss to be reduced substantially. Standard MPO-LC modules which reached a maximum loss of 0.75dB can now deliver losses as low as 0.5Db.
HUBER + SUHNER has been involved in creating fibre optic solutions for the data centre sector for many years and its LiSA (Leading Interconnect Systems Approach) data centre product portfolio represents the company’s latest thinking on fibre management.
The LiSA offering comprises “end to end” fibre management systems that are fully modular and scalable and offer users the highest packing density currently available. Incorporating HUBER + SUHNER’s class leading cable systems, LiSA offers high performance products that are easy to install, simple to maintain and quick to deploy. LiSA systems can be easily upgraded or reconfigured as the user’s future requirements change.
