Wave2Wave offers MXC connectors on EVO and EXO Platforms

Data center connectivity specialists Wave2Wave Solution now offers versions of its EVO and EXO platforms with MXC connector compatibility. The integration of the fiber-optic connectors extends optical backplane technology into structured cabling with expanded and collimated laser beams through the lensed MXC connectors.

Data center connectivity specialists Wave2Wave Solution now offers versions of its EVO and EXO platforms with MXC connector compatibility. The integration of the fiber-optic connectors extends optical backplane technology into structured cabling with expanded and collimated laser beams through the lensed MXC connectors.

Wave2Wave says it has optimized its MXC connector family for direct interface to equipment densely populated with mid-board mounted multimode or single-mode optical modules. The company says its plug and receptacle design provides increased density with fewer components than typical offerings. It supports fiber rows of up to 16 fibers, and up to four rows of fibers for fiber lane counts as high as 64.

The company's EVO panel family supports a wide variety of applications and fiber connectivity in telecom and the data center. EVO supports 3,840 fiber connections in its 1U chassis and more than 10,000 in its 2U version. EXO, meanwhile, EXO is a modular platform that supports a wide variety of connectivity types and applications in a 1RU chassis. EXO supports up to four cassettes and feed-through modules that technicians can mix to match specific connectivity requirements. There are modules for fiber, copper, wavelength, and optical power management.

"Incorporating MXC connectors into our EVO and EXO solutions offers a number of benefits to the data center network, including higher reliability via dust resistance, longer life cycle via non-contact, and space savings via high density," said David Wang, founder and chief executive officer of Wave2Wave. "By deploying these solutions, companies can experience greater efficiency, improved performance, and reduced capex and opex."
