FlexiBend MPO/MTP flexible-boot cable assemblies

Molex has introduced FlexiBend MPO/MTP flexible-boot cable assemblies, designed to optimise cable routing and support low profile installations where cabinet doors or front panels might interfere with traditional straight style bend limiting boots. These optical cables can be used in datacom, telecommunications, medical, and industrial equipment cabinets and rack-to-rack applications, the company says. 

The assemblies feature flexible bend limiting boots which allow cable exits in varying positions from straight to a 90-degree angle. 

SFP+ Direct Attach Copper Cables (DAC)

R&M has introduced a new line of small-form high speed copper assemblies. Data centres increasingly need higher speeds, design flexibility and a cost-effective migration path. A new family of Small form-factor pluggable plus transceiver (SFP+) Direct Attach Copper Cables (DAC), also known as Twinax cables, has been designed to meet these requirements.

ADSS cable

m2fx has launched its All Dielectric Self Supporting (ADSS) cable. Designed to speed up the last mile of fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) deployments, ADSS’s ultra-lightweight, durable construction means it can use existing poles and fittings, without expensive and time consuming survey, planning and remedial civil works or the need for costly blowing equipment.

CAB-LN1

Laser Components has introduced the CAB-LN1 series of low noise cables from Femto, designed to counter triboelectric and microphonic noise improving sensitive current and charge measurements. Using a semi-conductive layer between the dielectric and shield layers combined with high quality components which guarantees an insulation resistance >1014 Ω.

PM fibre range

Fibercore, a UK-based provider of specialty optical fibre, has announced two new fibres in its Telecoms PM range for OFC 2014.

The PM Fibre range has been extended further to include up-rated variants of HB980T(6.6/125) and HB1250T(9/125). These new designs maximise the fundamental benefit of the Bow-Tie structure to deliver a 40 per cent increase in birefringence when compared with more conventional PM fibres.

MXC multi-fibre connector

US Conec has announced that the availability of the MXC multi-fibre connector will coincide with OFC 2014.  Compared to existing optical connector solutions, the plug and receptacle design provides increased density, lower cost, and fewer components – making it suitable for new equipment card edge requirements driven by implementation of embedded, mid-board optics modules, the company says. PCB space consumption on the inside of the equipment is minimised by combining the traditional adapter and on-card plug into one simple, condensed, single piece housing.

FA-1 North submarine cable system

Reliance Globalcom, a provider of managed network and communication services, and Ciena, the network specialist, have upgraded Reliance Globalcom’s FA-1 North submarine cable system with 100G capacity.

Coax Link Controller

InCoax Networks, a provider of IP over coax solutions, has introduced its next-generation Coax Link Controller, which is the fibre extension over the existing coaxial cabling inside apartment buildings.
 
The company says the new Coax Link Controller can provide up to 1.4 Gbps over the in-building coaxial network and is a cost-effective and competitive solution that makes it possible for operators to ensure network capacity and quality of service for all network subscribers.

FDP optical fibre

Polymicro Technologies, a subsidiary of Molex, has announced improvements to its FDP optical fibre. The latest enhancements improve solarisation of the fibre in deep UV (ultra-violet) applications (190 – 325 nm).
 
'The introduction of fibre FDP revolutionised UV applications. We are pleased to bring customers enhanced FDP fibre with even better qualities to withstand UV exposure,' said Teodor Tichindelean, global product manager.
