Front access fibre management system saves space in data centres

Scalable fibre management systems from Huber+Suhner now include the SYLFA HD front access fibre management system which is modular in design. It provides a space-saving structured cabling alternative for WAN/access network, central office and data centre use, and is easy to install and manage, says the company.

The front access system maximises space with high port density and patch cord overlength support. The module design allows access incoming cables from the front or from the rear, boosting efficiency. The modules also provide a distinctive routing channel that respects the minimal banding radius and enables front accessibility without losing density.

Front access also eliminates the risk of cable movement and damage, removing the need to repair and replace parts of the system over the long term. This also reduces the extra effort needed for moves, adds and changes, points out Huber+Suhner, and enables quicker access to fibre optic cabling.

SYLFA HD ensures safe and simple patching via a patented LC-XD push-pull connector that can be used in combination with all Huber+Suhner patch cords and cable systems. It has pre-terminated connectivity and is designed for ease of installation. It can be upgraded easily as demands increase to allow customers to optimise ownership and lifecycle costs, points out Huber + Suhner.

The high density SYLFA HD offers greater bandwidth possibilities while saving much-needed space, leaving more room for performance- and revenue-driving active equipment, said the company.

Huber+Suhner has headquarters in Switzerland and develops and manufactures components and system solutions for electrical and optical connectivity. With cables, connectors and systems – developed from the three core technologies of radio frequency, fibre optics and low frequency – the company serves customers in the communication, transportation and industrial sectors. The products are claimed to deliver high performance, quality, reliability and long life even under harsh environment conditions.

The company has a global production network, combined with group companies and agencies in over 80 countries.
