Data center cabling specialist Opticonx has announced Xtreme+, which it describes as an FTTx fiber-optic cable line for entering such buildings as data centers, customer premises, head-ends, and colocation points.
Xtreme+ line includes trunk, splice, and pigtail cassettes that combine to form an end-to-end fiber cable system based on low-loss fusion-spliced cables. Each cassette offers protection, strain relief, and fiber routing of individual fibers; a see-through cover supports easy fiber mapping and identification, the company says. Technicians can install the cassettes from the front or rear of the panel enclosure and nearly eliminate panel dress out and the associated risk of damage to individual fibers and connectors, Opticonx adds.
The new line includes:
- Xtreme+ Trunk pre-terminated or pre-stubbed cassettes with multi-fiber indoor OFNR/OFNP cables support routing and splicing to building entrance splice vaults. Xtreme+ Trunks can also be spliced to Xtreme+ Splice cassettes for inter-or intra-building networks.
- Xtreme+ Splice cassettes are pre-packaged splice cassettes with 250-µm single fiber or 12-fiber ribbon for splicing to multi-fiber intra- and inter-building cables. Xtreme+ Splice cassettes can be mounted in any Opticonx patch panel or housing and can be made LGX compatible with optional mounting brackets.
- Xtreme+ Pigtail Splice cassettes come with either 250-µm single fiber or 12-fiber ribbon for splicing to multi-fiber intra- and inter-building cables using a separate splice tray.
The Xtreme+ product line also includes patch panels and breakout kits.
