Key features transition modules
MTP 10G systems that are upgradeable in the future
- Transition modules using MTP connectivity at the rear of the module allows users to build an upgradeable backbone suitable for 40G or 100G in the future. Deploying MTP in the backbone also offers users a high degree of flexibility when connecting different types of interfaces and equipment.
Single and twin modules for increased flexibility
- Having the flexibility of a single or a twin module in the IANOS portfolio is crucial for many applications. The twin module offers improved routing space and handling when splicing cables and it also allows high fiber-count trunk cables to be better utilised in chassis. A Base-8 twin module supports a trunk cable that has 24 fibers and splits to 3 × 8 fiber MTPs at the rear of the module. This reduces the size and installation time of the cable and also provides 100 % port density in the chassis.
Low-loss performance 0.35 dB
- As data rates increase in a data center, the distance over which you can transmit data is reduced significantly. Furthermore, the total optical loss budget also comes down at higher data rates. To compensate this effect, operators need to deploy super low-loss components in all areas of the link so that flexibility can be maintained without compromising performance
Base-8 for simpler upgrades
- Base-8 transition modules are designed for environments requiring LC connectivity today, and SR4 compatibility tomorrow. Deploying eight fibers from day one, allows users to upgrade their existing LC links to SR4 parallel optics without wasting any of the fibers inside the cable.
