Small Satellite Conference 2019
Small Satellite Conference 2019

During the Small Satellites conference, the discussion will be around the technical issues, development considerations, and new opportunities that result from an ever-growing trend toward missions using tens, hundreds, or even thousands of small satellites.

IANOS® modules

IANOS modules are interchangeable connectivity blocks that can be inserted into all IANOS chassis. A wide range of different modules is available to cover many different applications such as patching, splicing, transition and conversion.

IANOS® TAP/splitter modules

IANOS® TAP/splitter modules

The IANOS TAP/splitter module allows a large variety of tapping/splitter applications such as network analysis or splitting of the signal into several ratios. The offering allows single-mode and multimode, the use of SC, LC or MTP® connectivity, and input and output ports either on the front or rear side of the module. Colour-coded ports ensure simple and intuitive handling.
 

IANOS conversion modules

IANOS conversion modules

The IANOS conversion module provides an easy upgrade path for users who want to convert their pre-installed MTP® backbone cables to match new transceiver requirements. This process allows users to get full fiber utilisation from their existing backbones without adding any new fibers. For example, two Base-12 backbone trunks can be converted to three Base 8 MTP connectors (40G SR4) or a single Base-24 MTP connector (100G SR10).

IANOS patch modules

IANOS patch modules

The IANOS patching module is a straight-through MTP®, LC or SC simplex patching field that allows trunk cables to be connected directly to patch cords or harnesses. In Base-2 single-mode applications, the IANOS patching module provides a fast plug-and-play alternative to fusion splicing, and for MTP® multimode applications the patching module is designed to facilitate end-to-end parallel optics using Base-8, Base-12 or Base-24 connectivity.

IANOS pre-term modules

IANOS pre-term modules

The IANOS pre-terminated module is a "single" module which is pre-connectorised directly with a specific cable length. The pre-terminated system can be supplied as follows:

  • With a module at both ends
  • With a module at one end and a harness assembly at the other end
  • With a module at one end and the other end loose for fusion splicing
Pre-terminated modules reduce the installation time considerably compared to spliced pigtails. Furthermore, they help data center operators achieve a near perfect length management of cables between racks. Generally, the pre-terminated module will be placed in a server rack and the other end will be spliced into a high-density LISA cross-connect rack. Pre-terminated systems can also be used to reduce the optical loss across a link by reducing the number of mated connector pairs, but care should be taken not to compromise flexibility if the infrastructure is upgraded to higher data rates at a later stage.
 

IANOS splice modules

IANOS splice modules

The IANOS splicing module is a double module which facilitates the fusion splicing of 24 individual heat-shrink splices or sandwich splices. The splicing module is suitable for all Optipack 8, 12 and 24-strand cables and can also accommodate bend limiting.

IANOS transition modules

IANOS transition modules

The IANOS transition module converts MTP® backbone cables to LC or SC simplex connectivity at the front of the module so that patch cords can be connected to nearby active equipment. Generally used for lower data rates such as 1 G, 10 G or 16 G, the transition module enables users to upgrade their LC-based links in the future by simply replacing the transition module with an MTP®-based conversion or patching module. Transition modules are available in single or double versions and are suitable for Base-8, Base-12 or Base-24 MTP® backbones.
