Nexans, one of the worldwide leaders in cables and cabling systems, has announced the launch of ultra-low loss performance for multimode MTP connectivity.
New high-speed protocols for multimode resulted in a reduction of optical budgets. With normal off-the-shelf cabling products data centre managers and designers would face limitations when designing new facilities or upgrading existing ones to the next speeds.
With the improvements in
optical performance LANmark-OF OM4 ENSPACE overcomes these challenges.
Years of production experience with the MTP connector resulted in a tighter control on the insertion loss limits of ENSPACE Pre-Terms and modules. These are now equipped with Ultra Low Loss performance.
- ENSPACE OM4 MTP-LC module: Total insertion loss reduces from 0,5 dB to 0,35 dB
- MTP trunks: Insertion loss for MTP connections reduces from 0,3 dB to 0,25 dB
- LC trunks: Insertion loss for LC/LC connections reduces from 0,3 dB to 0,25 dB
Data centre managers are preparing for the introduction of 100G in their core network. IEEE has approved a second generation of 100G, 100GBASE-SR4, in the IEEE802.3bm task force.
The new standard allocates only 1,9 dB channel attenuation with a reach of 100m. With the newly introduced Ultra Low Loss performance Nexans can now guarantee up to 6 MTP Ultra Low Loss connections in a channel and maintain a reach of 100m.
