Understanding Fiber Optic Cassettes

Understanding the role of fiber optic cassettes will become increasingly important as companies move toward 40G/100G, and managing the cable plant becomes more complicated. Fiber optic cassettes are modular components that take fibers from a trunk cable and distribute them to a duplex cable. They help manage the fiber connections by simplifying cable management without running new cables. In high-density network applications, cassettes ensure the efficient use of space and enable quick deployment, high reliability which eases moves, adds and changes and allows network administrators to refresh frequencies.

Fiber optic cassettes help manage the fiber connections by simplifying cable management without running new cables. In high-density network applications, cassettes ensure the efficient use of space and enable quick deployment, high reliability which eases moves, adds and changes and allows network administrators to refresh frequencies. In this webinar, we will review the types of cassettes available and how they will help the migration to 40G/100G networks.

Sumitomo Electric, Senko partner on AirMT noncontact multi-fiber connector technology

Sumitomo Electric and Senko have partnered on new AirMT multi-fiber optical connectors which offer an alternative to physical contact multi-fiber optical connectivity, as found in such formats as MPO connectors. AirMT connectors eliminate the problem with  traditional MPO connectors, which require high spring force to achieve physical contact for MT-to-MT ferrules, and suffer from high sensitivity to dust contamination.
