LC reversible uniboot patch cords are terminated with premium grade zirconia ceramic ferrule connectors and supplied with either a single 2.4 mm or 2.0 mm diameter duplex cable to improve space saving and flexibility in your #datacenter
AFL was awarded 12 patents over the past quarter for technology and product developments in fiber optic cabling, fusion splicing, test equipment and connectivity.
Gold-level awards are earned by organizations whose innovations are judged to be excellent, and whose benefits are clear. Each gold-level innovation makes a substantial improvement over previous methods employed, approaches taken, or products and systems used. 2019 Cabling Innovators Gold Awards include products and customer use cases from AFL, Belden, Chatsworth, CommScope, Corning, Credo Semiconductor, Esticom, Fluke Networks, Drybit, Jonard Tools, Legrand, Leviton, OFS, Panduit, R&M, Rosenberger, Senko, Siemon, Softing, Sumix, Sunbird, Superior Essex, and Wirewerx.
During the 2019 Cabling Innovators Awards ceremony, the final set of awards presented, the Platinums, have been judged to be superb innovations, characterized by a groundbreaking approach to meeting a need, or establishing a new level of performance, efficiency, ease-of-use, and other beneficial qualities. Here the 2019 Cabling Innovators Platinum Award honorees including: AFL, Belden, Cailabs, CommScope, Dura-Line, Cable Ferret, Fluke Networks, Panduit, and the Siemon Company.
Download this editorial guide to learn about the trends impacting data center interconnects. The data center interconnect space has seen a wealth of innovation – which means a lot of choices for network operators. From the physical layer to the application of artificial intelligence and open system concepts, the data center interconnect space is rapidly evolving.
AFL has received Construction Products Regulation (CPR) certification for certain fiber-optic cables including its Sub-Unitized MicroCore 2.0 and MicroCore 3.0, plus its Ruggedized MicroCore, product lines. CPR, often recognized as “CE marked,” defines minimum cable fire safety standard (EuroClasses) based on installation and type of building. Each country sets its own minimum EuroClass requirements for installation cables.
When you compare the Bluetooth-enabled splicer/cleaver combination to a traditional splicer-cleaver combination, you realize a 76% cost of ownership reduction and weeks of time reclaimed. Read the cost study to learn more.
Ultra High Density Modules provides an interface between MPO Trunks and LC interface of active equipment. This UHD module with its unique footprint provides scalability for high density fiber optics infrastructure with up to 288 fibers inside a 2U space. Pre-assembled MPO modules improve the speed of installation and because they are so compact, the improve space management in a high fiber density environment.
Join AFL for Webinar Series that begins on August 1st. The first of a four-webinar series, From Theory to Troubleshooting—Fiber 101, will cover the basics of a fiber optic network, both point-to-point and FTTx. The theory of light transmission and network performance including loss, reflection and dispersion will be discussed. Basic terminology and units of measurement will be defined. Fundamentals of fiber cable design for utilities as well as commissioning, maintenance and troubleshooting concepts will be introduced.
With hyperscale data centers driving the need for extreme high density fiber cabling, the market has responded with new products that pack up to 3,456 fibers into a single cable. Such density affects the installation of these cables. This article overviews some of the high-density fiber-optic cables available today and their suppliers’ comments and recommendations regarding installation practices.
