Siemon, a leading global fiber optic network infrastructure specialist, is pleased to announce its new LightStack™ Ultra High Density Fiber Plug and Play System. Siemon's LightStack end-to-end fiber system combines superior performance and density with unmatched accessibility in a sleek, modern enclosure that easily supports today's advanced data center and storage area network environments, while providing fast, seamless migration to advanced 40 and 100 gigabit applications.
LightStack features an innovative patent-pending rack-mount enclosure with the capacity to house 144 LC fibers or 864 MTP fibers in a single rack unit. Its revolutionary horizontal cable management handles both traditional and uni-tube jumpers and features easy-unlatch, swing-open management clips for full access to the jumpers. Innovative swivel cable tie-down points on the rear of the enclosure maintain proper bend radius.
With a rear bottom tray that slides inward for easy access to the connectivity while the enclosures are stacked on top of each other, LightStack offers best in class accessibility compared to any other high-density fiber enclosure on the market. In the out position, the rear tray acts as a cable partition between stacked enclosures. Low-Loss Plug and Play Modules are also easily inserted or removed from either the front or rear of the enclosure and the visually appealing easy-open magnetic door eliminates harmful pinch points and offers high-visibility drop-down labeling.
Available in OM4 multimode and singlemode, the ultra-slim LightStack LC-to-MTP Low-Loss Plug and Play modules offer the industry's lowest loss performance of 0.35dB for flexible fiber channels. Fully ready to support 40 and 100 gigabit applications, LightStack low-loss 0.2dB MTP pass-through adapters are available in 2, 4 and 6-port designs and they are offered in both aligned and opposed key orientation to accommodate all polarity methods. Unlike other fiber solutions on the market, LightStack also supports 12-fiber LC pass-through adapter plates for current 10 gigabit Ethernet or Fibre Channel SAN applications.
"As today's high-density data centers migrate from 10 to 40 and 100 gigabit speeds, they require low-loss fiber connectivity to support multiple mated connections for flexible patching options over a wide range of distances and configurations while remaining within link loss budgets. At the same time, these connections need to be easily accessed and managed to quickly and effectively make changes," explains
For backbone links, the LightStack Fiber System includes next-generation and traditional MTP trunk cables available in OM3 and OM4 bend insensitive multimode fiber and singlemode fiber. Siemon's LC BladePatch featuring Siemon's revolutionary push-pull boot design perfectly complements the ultra high density of the new LightStack system improving accessibility even further. Ideal for connecting to active equipment from interconnects or cross connects such as in SAN applications, LightStack also offers LC BladePatch®-to-MTP hybrid trunks for precise control and easy insertion and removal. LC BladePatch jumpers and trunks utilize a smaller diameter uni-tube cable design which reduces cable pathway congestion improving air flow and increasing energy efficiency while simplifying overall cable management. The low loss 12-fiber LC BladePatch®-to-MTP hybrid trunks are available in both multimode and singlemode, as well as in a variety of staggered lengths to support a multitude of active equipment including Cisco Nexus, Cisco MDS and Brocade.
