Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has enhanced its comprehensive line of LightHouse advanced fibre cabling solutions with a new APC BladePatch Uni-boot duplex singlemode fibre jumper.
The new jumper has been developed in response to increasing fibre densities and the growing demand for APC (angled physical contact) connectivity that offers improved return loss performance for high-speed fibre links.
Siemon’s new LC APC BladePatch Uni-boot duplex jumper features the company’s patented revolutionary BladePatch low-profile push-pull boot design for easy access and removal in tight-fitting areas such as high-density fibre patching for switches, blade servers and storage equipment.
Utilising ITU-T G.657.A1 bend-insensitive singlemode fibre and a smaller-diameter uni-tube cable design, the LC APC BladePatch reduces cable pathway congestion, improving air flow and increasing energy efficiency while simplifying overall cable management.
“In recent years, we have seen a growing need for better return loss performance and APC singlemode connectivity for connecting carrier services and supporting higher-speed protocols in data centre, long haul and FTTX environments,” said Kevin Stronkowsky, Product Manager for Siemon.
“The fibre endface of an APC connector features an eight-degree angle that provides better reflection performance versus UPC (ultra physical contact) connectors. We are extremely pleased to expand our APC singlemode offering with the patented push-pull design of our already popular LC BladePatch.”
Siemon’s LightHouse APC singlemode offering also includes fibre patch cords, fibre pigtails, pre-terminated fibre trunks and connectivity.
