AFL to launch Xpress Fiber Management (XFM-28) dual access module panel. Designed to maximize module capacity through both front and rear access in four rack units (RUs), the panel is billed as ideal for use where additional rack space is unavailable. The XFM-28 doubles the capacity of traditional 14-slot, front-access only 4RU panels and offers 28 slots to accommodate AFL’s LGX modules (14 front and 14 rear). Lightweight and robust, the panel offers routing flexibility.
The introduction of 200µm coated fibers in the market is causing a paradigm shift in cabling and splicing technology. These smaller fibers are found in loose fiber cables, and offer many benefits compared to standard 250µm loose fiber cables. The only real disadvantage is that currently most 200µm fiber applications can only be spliced one fiber at a time. If a technician wants to ribbonize these 200µm loose fibers for mass fusion splicing, the simplicity is lost.
This guide aims to provide an entry-level understanding of the term and what it means in the context of the data center market and global IT landscape.
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.
