Bothell, WA, United States, 2014/02/04 - HDF3168 Distribution System Consolidates Patching in Data Centers, Creates Cost Savings.
Leviton introduced the HDF3168 Fiber Distribution System, a high-density solution that consolidates fiber network patching in data centers. Ideal for large enterprise and cloud data centers, service providers and central office facilities, the HDF3168 System is used in the main distribution area (MDA) and serves as the main cross-connect patching location for all fiber channels.
"Leviton designed the HDF3168 Distribution System to provide the most fiber patching per square foot in the industry, greatly reducing space requirements and creating significant long-term cost savings," said Tony Yuen, senior product manager, fiber, for Leviton. "When used with Leviton 24-fiber MTP® connectivity, the HDF3168 system offers an ideal migration path from 10G to 40G to 100G and beyond."
Taking up only a single two-foot square floor tile, the HDF3168 reduces space requirements and allows for easy access to the space around it and beneath a raised floor.
The HDF3168 Fiber Distribution System employs a unique patch deck design. One frame holds up to 22 decks, each configured with fiber cassettes, adapter plates or splice trays. The frame has the capacity for 3,168 LC connections or 15,552 connections using 24-fiber MTP. It was designed to work with Berk-Tek Micro Data Center Plenum (MDP) cable, which offers an extremely small diameter for easier loading and maintenance.
The frame's open design cuts time and labor for maintenance, as it allows unobstructed access to patch cord connections on the cassettes and adapter plates. It also includes rear doors that lock to protect trunk cabling and locking front doors (sold separately) that include one transparent side to allow visibility.
