Fiber management in C-RAN HUB
HUBER+SUHNER provides a product portfolio that enables the deployment of future-proof and easy-to-install fiber management for both the data center, FTTH mobile networks markets.
The LISA side access system can accommodate up to 3000 fibers in a single 300 mm deep cabinet or 6000 fibers when placed back to back across a single floor tile. This packing density significantly reduces the total cost per port and limits the amount of space consumption within the building.
Coloured labelling identifies applications clearly and helps to provide error-free identification of ports. This reduces the time required to identify ports and also eliminates the risk of downtime caused by incorrect patching.
A wide range of fiber trays and simple installation from the front side allows users to grow their network as and when they need to. Different applications and connectivity types can be mixed together in the same rack, and customers can choose how and when they want to grow their infrastructure. This flexibility helps to spread project costs and provides users with peace of mind, knowing that as their infrastructure evolves, so will their fiber management system.
The IANOS 4U chassis is designed for high density applications where connections to high density blade servers and switches are required in the same or adjacent racks. Generally mounted above or below switches, the IANOS 4U chassis supports up to 576 fibers (288 ports) per 4U of rack space. The IANOS 1U chassis is designed for medium to high density applications where connections to servers and switches are required in the same or adjacent racks. Generally mounted at the top of equipment cabinets, the IANOS 1U chassis supports up to 144 fibers (72 ports) per 1U of rack space.
IANOS® high-density inter-connectors
The IANOS system from HUBER+SUHNER is a state of the art fiber optic management system which facilitates fast, flexible and future-proofed connectivity in the data center. As its name suggests "IANOS" (as in Roman mythology) looks to the past as well as to the future. This means that "IANOS" is a combination of previous experience and valuable insight into the future.
Data centers are constantly adapting to reflect the demands placed on them, and today's fiber management systems need to accommodate these changes with the minimum amount of cost, time and disruption. As data centers evolve, we see a broad mixture of applications and data rates depending on the location, the business model and of course the data demand. IANOS accommodates these changes by offering the widest range of connectivity scenarios in a single generic platform.
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.
