Belden Delivers Seamless Appearance for Fiber Connections in the Data Center

ST. LOUIS--()--Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has introduced two new fiber solutions that deliver a seamless appearance and improved aesthetics for data center connections.

“As the most important space in the digital age, today’s enterprise businesses want their data centers to be a professional-looking showpiece. However, maintaining a seamless appearance is not always easy with diverse-looking copper and fiber connections needing to reside in the same cabinet and newer components needing to blend in with legacy equipment,” says Dwayne Crawford, Belden product line manager for fiber connectivity solutions.

FiberExpress Ultra Angled Cassettes support angled pre-terminated fiber connections that feature the same low-profile shape as Belden AngleFlex copper patch panel inserts, delivering a seamless appearance for fiber and copper connections residing in the same cabinet.

FX Ultra Angled Cassettes come in the latest OM3 and OM4 multimode fiber types, including an optional Erika Violet color for OM4 cassettes to eliminate the chance of accidentally mixing the two fiber types. The OM4 cassettes are also available with a low insertion loss performance value of 0.35 dB to support multiple connections and migration to advanced higher-speed 40 and 100 gigabit fiber applications. Available in right or left angles, the cassettes support 48 LC-type duplex fiber connections or 24 SC-type duplex fiber connections per rack unit.

“In addition to the seamless appearance, the FX Ultra Angled Cassettes also provide a lower-profile design than traditional ‘v-shaped’ angled connections for more room inside cabinets and more labeling space while ensuring fiber bend radius protection for reliable performance,” says Crawford.

New black FiberExpress UHD Housings and Shelves provide a consistent look with other black data center equipment such as racks, cabinets and copper panels. Augmenting the existing light-colored titanium finish, the black FX UHD Housing and Shelves provide protection for both field and pre-terminated fiber connections. These lightweight, easy-to-install rack-mount fiber connectivity systems feature sliding and tilting drawers to access the fiber connections, clear visible labeling to identify ports and support for up to 72 LC-type duplex fiber connections per rack unit.
