Data center connectivity product supplier Panduit Corp. has introduced the HD Flex 2.0 Fiber Cabling System to provide high fiber density and serviceability in high-performance data center networks.

The new fiber cable line is designed to be easily integrated with existing fiber infrastructure. It accommodates fiber cassettes and fiber adapter panels (FAPs) with different port counts within the same enclosure and panel. The system offers 6-port and 12-port cassettes and FAPs that technicians can deploy in various combinations to support up to 144 fibers (LC) or 864 fibers (MPO) per rack unit. The result is seamless port migration from 10G to 25/40/50/100G in the same RU space without replacing existing fibers, Panduit asserts.

The HD Flex 2.0 Fiber Cabling System also is designed to enable adoption of the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches and ACI 40-Gbps and spine-leaf architecture with a reliable physical infrastructure. The use of 12-port cassettes in such applications lowers installation and test costs, Panduit says.

The HD Flex 2.0 Fiber Cabling System is available for immediate delivery.
