Optipack trunk system (MTP-MTP)
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.
- Fast access and high packing density
- Base-8 ready for SR4 applications
- Reduced cable diameter
- Combine with IANOS patching modules for simpler upgrades
Base-12 trunk cables
Base-12 Optipack trunks allow users to build 10G links today which can easily be upgraded to 40G or 100G links tomorrow using conversion modules, harnesses or jumpers. This approach will result in a 33 % fiber wastage for 40G links because the transceiver requires only 8 of the 12 fibers in the cable.
Base-24 cable systems
Base-24 Optipack trunks allow users to build 10G links today which can easily be upgraded to 40G or 100G links tomorrow by using conversion modules, conversion harnesses or jumpers.
Base-8 trunk cables
Base-8 Optipack trunks allow users to build 10G links today which can easily be upgraded to 40G links tomorrow using 8 fiber MTP connectivity.
