Superior Essex Releases New 6-, 12-, 24-Single Mode Fiber Breakout Cables and 12-Fiber Ribbon Interconnect Cable for Data Centers
Atlanta, GA, July 20, 2011
Superior Essex today announced the availability of four new Single Mode Fiber (SMF) cables designed for central offices and data centers: 6-, 12-, and 24-Reduced Water Peak (RWP) SMF Breakout cables and a 12-RWP SMF Ribbon Interconnect cable.
The Breakout cables consist of 6-, 12-, or 24- 2 mm simplex interconnect cable subunits supported by a central strength element. Each subunit is surrounded by aramid yarns and a flame retardant PVC riser-rated jacket, and is ideally suited to be attached to small form factor connectors.
The Ribbon Interconnect cable is designed to connect directly to an MPO/MPT-style array connector. It can be used with array connectors on either side for a ribbon jumper cable, or as a transition cable with the array connector on one side and a high fiber count cable on the other. The cable consists of one 12-fiber ribbon surrounded by aramid yarns and a flame retardant PVC riser-rated jacket.
Both the Breakout and Ribbon Interconnect cable designs are fully compliant to GR-409,
Issue 2 and ICEA-596.
