High-Density Fiber Optic Cables
Fiber Mountain is proud to provide its consumers with a wide selection of super premium fiber optic cables designed to facilitate all the configurations needed to run their various hardware and software applications. Their primary cable options include their single-mode 12-fiber cable, the multimode 24-fiber cable, and their single-mode duplex LC cable. All of their pre-terminated, multi-fiber cables are suitable to meet all possible data center cabling needs and can handle the high-speed demands of 10Gbps, 25Gbps, 40Gbps, or 100Gbps applications.
All of their single and multimode cables are available with either A, B, or C polarity. To comply with any environmental requirements, they include a range of UL-rated cable jacket options- including Riser, Plenum, and LSZH. Additionally, Fiber Mountain’s cables are ICID-enabled with NFC capability to help ensure they can meet all cabling demands within a data center while providing consistent and efficient data transmission.
J-Series Breakout Panels
Fiber Mountain’s specially designed J-Series Breakout Panels and cassettes allow for developing dynamic network layouts in 1RU space. They’re modular and permit users to combine multiple breakout and mapping options into the same frame. All of the J-Series cassettes are interchangeable so that data centers can use all eight at once or any other amount within the eight available slots. The cassettes are easy to install or remove from their modular panel to allow for low-maintenance steups. Depending on your data center’s unique needs and procedures, the J-Series cassettes are also available in MPO-8 configurations with several fiber mapping options.
It’s highly recommended that J-Series patch panels be deployed with Fiber Mountain’s AllPath Director (APD) orchestration software. Doing so provides an intuitive and effective way to manage the panels while providing optimal network-wide visibility and automatic documentation of physical layer performance.
SENSUS Premium Fiber Patch Panel
Fiber Mountain’s SENSUS Patch Panel is 100% passive and possesses active intelligence software, along with innovative hardware to help transform the effectiveness and transparency of data center network infrastructure. The system uses intelligent panels to aggregate and break out fiber connectivity from several trunk sources, including high-density MPO trunks, Duplex LCs, and MPO trunks. The panel is ideal for terminating data hall fiber runs, row-to-row, or top-of-rack connectivity, along with QSFP breakout for switches.
Every SENSUS Patch Panel is equipped with sensors to read ICID clips and detect cable presence, allowing system users to track free ports and the kinds of cables the panel is connected to at any time. The panel’s management module includes Near-Field Communications (NFC) technology that reads product information within the NFC tags of cables using ICID clips. It also possesses a four-inch LCD touchscreen that displays cable information and can provide detailed instructions of work orders to technicians.
Optical Path Exchange (OPX)
The Optical Path Exchange (OPX) system provided by Fiber Mountain offers low-latency, scalable, protocol agnostic, optical MUX capabilities that can help transform a data center’s network infrastructure. The system works seamlessly to combine all of Fiber Mountain’s other products and software solutions, including their Sensus and J-Series Panels, and the AllPath Director. The configuration of these systems allows for enhanced physical layer intelligence and transparent management of high-density fiber optics to enable a more dynamic, secure, and easily managed array of physical networks.
