Racks and cabinets

HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of Optical Distribution Frames (ODF) and 19" equipment cabinets to meet all requirements. HUBER+SUHNER’s comprehensive range of equipment cabinets is designed to fulfil the diverse needs of the typical data center operator. The cabinet range is based around a common construction of anodised aluminium extrusions which match the innovative CDR passive optical rack system.

NGR - next generation rack

NGR - next generation rack

Designed in collaboration with installers and operators, the NGR incorporates many features not possible when using conventional 19" cabinets and splicing panels. For example, the NGR is only 300 mm deep and its "c-shaped design" allows unrestricted access to all internal elements from the front side. This not only reduces installation and servicing time, but offers customers the opportunity to position NGRs back-to-back for double density within a 600 mm standard footprint. In addition, the c-shaped design also allows cables to be patched from the NGR directly to adjacent switch equipment without the need to enter the raised floor void or overhead containment system. This reduces CAPEX and OPEX especially in small POP stations in which only a few racks are located.

HUBER+SUHNER’s NGRs are configured using modular and scalable sub-racks. This "building block" approach offers maximum flexibility with the option of matching fiber upgrades with customer take-up rates. Termination modules support all connectivity types and offer a wide array of applications in a single generic footprint so that one product covers all existing and future customer requirements.

Indoor cable systems

SMARTLINE break-out

SMARTLINE break-out

The SMARTLINE break-out cable is suitable for shorter link lengths and it is commonly used as a «multi-patch» cable for point-to-point connections in the following areas:

  • Installation inside buildings
  • Data cable in distribution networks
  • For horizontal cabling and collapsed backbones

Multifiber cable systems (MTP)

HUBER+SUHNER designs and manufactures every component within its high performance cable systems. This allows us to increase performance by as much as 50 % so that our customers can achieve the optical budgets required for 40 GbE and 100 GbE applications without losing any of the flexibility required for evolving data centers.
 

Optipack MTP-MTP trunk cables

Optipack MTP-MTP trunk cables

Optipack trunk cables are high density multi-stranded cables which form the backbone of the data center. Available in different fiber-counts up to 144 fibers, the Optipack trunks reduce the installation time by consolidating multiple sub-units into a single cable. This approach significantly reduces the overall diameter of the cable and provides much better space utilization of cable routing channels.

Optipack trunk cables are available with 8, 12 and 24 fiber sub-units so that users can deploy Base-8, Base-12 or Base-24 infrastructures to suit their MTP connectivity requirements.

LISA - side access fiber management systems

LISA is a dedicated high-density fiber management system commonly used as a centralised cross connect in the main distribution area (MDA) of large data centers. With a 300 mm depth and full access from the front side; LISA cabinets can be positioned against unused walls, at the end of cold aisles or back-to-back on a single floor tile.

LISA racks have a density of 1500 LC ports per rack or 3000 LC ports per tile when placed back-to-back. For MTP applications the density is 1080 or 2160 MTP ports respectively.
The main difference between LISA and conventional 19" panels is the fact that LISA is fully accessible from the front side. This means that users can install, patch or remove fiber trays simply by sliding out the tray. This feature is much more attractive than 19" panels which generally require access to the rear side of the cabinet. Patching to the LISA rack is fast and easy and a dedicated slack storage area for jumpers allows users to make "any-to-any" patching with just two lengths of cord.

LISA - front access fiber management systems

The LISA front access system is focused on speed of installation and network security during installation or maintenance. The LISA front access system represents a modular group of products that enables seamless connection of passive optical networks especially in central office environments. Reliability and performance are key to the success of our industry which is why we have ensured that the highest level of fiber protection and bend-radius limitation are standard across all front access system solutions. The center piece of the front access system is a unique and versatile compact module that can be used for pigtail, direct cable splicing or for the integration of pre-connectorised passive components such as splitters.

LISA compact modules for MultiCircuit (MCM) applications combine simple installation and maximum security within an optical network. An integrated loose tube storage facility in each module allows easy removal of the splicing machine without disturbing neighbouring modules. In telecommunication environments, the compact module is particularly suitable for simple physical connections between the equipment and the passive infrastructure by means of inter-connect or cross-connect.

BTU - break-out termination unit

BTU - break-out termination unit

The LISA BTU enclosure is a suitable sub-unit for accommodating patch cords, manifold cables or breakout cables such as SMARTLINE or MASTERLINE cables. Pre-terminated and thus factory-tested cable systems allow high fiber count links between the equipment and the passive infrastructure which can be installed on site in a matter of minutes. Breakout cable ends such as SMARTLINE cables can be securely housed in BTUs.

The rack mount slide-out type BTU enables distribution, termination, patching, storage and management in one unit. The BTU supports cross-connect architecture and provides the transmission of the equipment interface in a passive network equipment rack. Each distribution enclosure incorporates a slide-out drawer to allow full frontal access and operation. The distribution enclosures use a fiber guide mechanism which guarantee fiber bend control. Horizontal cable guides are also incorporated on the front of the patch panel to allow the horizontal routing of patch cords. The fiber distribution enclosures can be mounted in standard 19" equipment rack or in the LISA NGR, respectively CDR rack platform.

CTS - customer termination shelf

CTS - customer termination shelf

The CTS splice box is the ideal product for connecting micro-duct systems or loose tube cable installations. With the modular LISA ACS cassette system, the options between SingleCircuit, MultiCircuit, splitter or combined applications are easy to realise. As the CTS is designed as a pure splicing device, it offers the possibility to connect blown-in fibers with cable pigtails in a simple way. A further benefit of the CTS is the hinge system which turns up to the front and allows optimal access to all installed cassettes.

fiberframe patch panel

fiberframe patch panel

The fiberframe is a 19" patch panel made from aluminium which allows the user to splice or patch various cables and cable systems in a standard 1U height 19" frame. It can accommodate up to 24 adapters such as LC, LX.5, SC and E-2000™. In addition, maximum flexibility is ensured thanks to exchangeable front plates for a wide range of supplementary adapter types. The panel has a density of up to 48 fibers using LC/LX.5/ E-2000™ connectivity and allows the user to bring various different cables and cable systems into the back of the panel, fixed with easy exchangeable back plates. A telescopic drawer ensures the access to the back of the connectors as well as to the splice cassettes and offers a storage area for loose tubes which is separated from the splicing and patching area inside the housing. For splice applications, the well-known ACS splice cassette accommodates up to 24 fibers per cassette using either heat shrink or sandwich splice protectors. The cassette allows the user to store fiber overlength neatly and securely within the cassette and the hinge mechanism ensures access to any cassette without tools. Each housing is delivered with a mounting kit (M5), designation strip, Velcro straps and cable ties.

MCM splitter module

MCM splitter module

HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of high-quality splitters with pre-terminated fiber ends integrated in modules. Such modules are either used for monitoring applications or in PON networks having a low split ratio with a maximum of 2:16 per module.

FO standard assemblies

The HUBER+SUHNER standard assemblies portfolio for fiber optics includes all most common patch cords and pigtails.
