R&M unveils cable routing system for cloud-grade modular switches

R&M, the Swiss developer and provider of cabling systems, is introducing the Netscale Blade Cabling Manager (BCM) to connect vertical and horizontal modular switches in cloud networks.

Cloud data centres are getting larger, and enterprises are embracing cloud networking for their private clouds. Modular high-density port switches are the building blocks for the modern cloud. The Netscale BCM is specially designed for modular high-density port switches and enables a reliable, flexible, and highly efficient cable infrastructure throughout the data centre.

Molex debuts flame-retardant Polymicro FR optical fibres

Molex has developed a flame-retardant version of its Polymicro optical fibres. Molex Polymicro Flame-Retardant (FR) Optical Fibres meet the UL 94 V-0 flammability standard for component materials used in telecommunications and industrial applications where a low flammability rating is essential.

Huber+Suhner shows high-performance E2000 connector

Connectivity specialist Huber+Suhner presented a high-performance E-2000 connector at ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden, this week. This premium fibre-optic connector with automatic metal shutters is suitable for more demanding optical network applications.

Fujikura 70S+ fusion splicer

Fujikura Europe launches smart fusion splicers

Fujikura Europe will be launching a new line of Bluetooth-enabled fusion splicers at ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden. These include the new core alignment single fibre optical fusion splicer, the 70S+, and the new twelve-fibre ribbon optical fibre fusion splicer, the 70R+.

The integration of Bluetooth allows the splicers to pair with the accompanying ‘Splice+’ smartphone application for easy control over settings, firmware and functionality. These smart splicers can detect cleave and strip condition, as well as monitor battery and power usage.

OFS doubles fibre count in AccuRibbon DC cables

OFS has expanded the AccuRibbon DC fibre-optic cable product range to include fibre counts up to 864 – up from the current maximum of 432. These 100-per-cent gel-free ribbon cables will be available in dielectric and metallic/armoured versions.

Sticklers WSC640 ClearWipes

Sticklers CleanWipes 640 cleans duplex connectors with one pass

The Sticklers fibre-optic cleaning line has expanded with the addition of the CleanWipes 640 optical-grade cleaning wipes. Engineered to deliver ‘perfectly clean’ at the lowest possible cost, the CleanWipe fabric is ideal for both cleaning fibre-optic connector end-faces as well as bare fibre prior to cleaving and splicing. The multipurpose wipe also perfectly clean lenses, mirrors, diffraction gratings, prisms and test equipment.

Harting expanded beam connector

Harting unveils expanded beam fibre-optic cable assembly

Harting has developed an expanded beam fibre-optic connector for providing high-bandwidth transmission in the harsh environments found in tunnel drilling and mining applications, where industrial Ethernet over fibre-optic cable is becoming the transmission medium of choice.  

The long distances involved, together with the high bandwidths that are required, make the use of fibre-optic cable essential, but since optical interfaces are very sensitive to contamination, a rugged and more reliable solution has to be devised.

R&M KombiModule

R&M launches compact fibre distribution housing

R&M, the Swiss provider of cabling systems for network infrastructure, is adding new options for equipping fibre-optic distribution racks and cabinets. Distributor housings are now available in two sizes compatible with standard 19-inch racks and cabinets.

The KombiModule comes as five units (5U) or 10 units (10U) high, to provide more options when building distribution sites for large networks. The 5U version is new to the range and offers space for up to 288 plug or 576 splice-only connections, while the 10U model can accommodate up to 576 plug or 1152 splice connections.
