LISA - centralised cross-connects
LISA (Leading Interconnect System Approach) 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 depth of 300 mm and full access from the front side, LISA racks 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 maximum density of 3600 LCD ports per rack (100 cassettes with 36 ports each) or 7200 LCD ports per floor tile when placed back to back.

LISA differs from conventional 19" panels in that it is fully accessible from the front. This means that users can install, patch or remove LISA fiber cassettes simply by sliding them out, without having to access the rear of the cabinet. Patching to the LISA rack is fast and easy and a dedicated slack storage area for patch cords allows users to make "any-to-any" patching with only two lengths of patch cords.
 
IANOS® - high-density connectivity system
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" (inspired by the Roman god Janus) 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.
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.

Optical Distribution Frames (ODF)
HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of Optical Distribution Frames (ODF) to meet its customers' requirements. The comprehensive range of Cable Distribution Racks (CDR) is designed to fulfil the diverse needs of the typical data center operator. The modern cabinet range is based on anodised aluminium profiles (C-frame) with tool-free, quick-release doors and side panels.
Cable Distribution Rack (CDR)

Cable Distribution Rack (CDR)

The CDR (Cable Distribution Rack) is a purpose-built high-density fiber management rack which serves as a central cross-connect in the main distribution area of data centers. With a footprint depth of only 300 mm, the CDR is fully modular and scalable up to 1620 ports (3240 fibers) using LC connectivity and 1080 ports (25920 fibers) using MTP connectivity. Users benefit from a C-shaped construction that allows all internal sub-elements to be installed and accessed from the front side. This important feature means that CDRs can be placed back to back on a single floor tile or, alternatively, against an unused wall for minimal space consumption.

The CDR is the most flexible and scalable fiber management system on the market. Different fiber performances, connectivity types and applications can be mixed and matched in the same cabinet, which enables the overall solution to evolve at the same pace as the data center. 

The CDR rack adapts to any environment and can be configured to meet any requirements. Its large range of accessories facilitates fiber management and improves cabling.

Wall boxes
The metal boxes WBH and WBC use the LiSA side access technology and give the installer a consistent modular system from the Central Office to the In-house area. These high quality lockable metal boxes are easy to install and internal fiber trays enable a flexible and modular expansion to any network. The LiSA side access system is focused on speed of installation and speed of access. The LiSA fiber tray can be installed safely and quickly, and access can be made at any time without the need for tooling and without the need to disrupt pre-installed live fibers. Reliability and performance are key to the success of our industry.

The highest level of fiber protection and bend-radius limitation come as standard. The LiSA fiber tray is supplied with up to 36 × pigtails which have been pre-stripped and neatly stored ready for connection. Because the pigtails are pre-stripped (outer coating removed), we are able to store longer pigtail lengths inside the tray and the process of fusion splicing is more consistent and repeatable.
Enclosures
Wall boxes act as the interface between the optical access network of the service provider (drop cable) and the internal "In-the-Home" network. A passive connection enclosure at the Building Entry Point (BEP) is used for splicing, routing or connecting fibers.

The Optibox family of products from HUBER+SUHNER offers a comprehensive enclosure portfolio to address a large variety of applications. From large buildings such as multi-dwelling units (MDU) to single family homes, with patching, splicing and splitting capabilities, the Optibox family satisfies the most demanding applications.
