JANUARY 26, 2007 -- The LightLink Poli-MOD is capable of supporting up to 144 patch and splices in a standard 4-U panel, say company representatives, resulting in 1,296 patch and splices within a seven foot rack (38-RU).

JANUARY 26, 2007 -- At the BICSI Winter Conference this week in Orlando, FL, AFL Telecommunications (search for AFL Telecommunications) demonstrated its recently released LightLink Poli-MOD, a patch and splice module that allows for increased patch and splice densities in an incremental growth platform.

Based on the LGX 118 footprint, the LightLink Poli-MOD is capable of supporting up to 144 patch and splices in a standard 4-U panel, say company representatives, resulting in 1,296 patch and splices within a seven foot rack (38-RU). Other features include front and rear accessibility, a secured environment for the spliced fiber, and easy fiber identification.

Available in single-slot (up to 12-fiber patch and splice) and double slot (up to 18-fiber patch and splice) configurations, the Poli-MOD system allows for ease in incremental expansion without concerns of damaging or disturbing existing components, claim AFL representatives.

The LightLink Poli-MOD comprises the module, cover, adapters, pigtails, splice sleeves, and all required hardware for installation.

According to the company, the new interconnect module is ideal for telecom closets, data centers, customer premises, LANs, WANs, central offices, hub sites, and remote terminals.
