Dubai, UAE, United Arab Emirates, 2014/10/09 - R&M believes the versatile solution will be ideal for distribution projects in larger buildings of all kinds, in data centers and in exchanges - RDM.com.
R&M, the Swiss structured cabling specialist, has launched its new CombiMODULE for 19" racks which is a new scalable, easy-to-assemble distributor solution. The broad-based usage scenarios for the versatile solution include distribution projects in larger buildings of all kinds, in data centers and in exchanges.
Fiber optic networks are being widely deployed by telecom providers across the Middle East to meet the growing demand for high speed connectivity. Shibu Vahid, Head of Technical Operations, R&M Middle East, Turkey and Africa said,“At R&M, we do our best to help operators expand their fiber optic networks more quickly and easily. Solutions such as a our CombiMODULE enable them to roll out fiber networks at rapid pace while eliminating any installation errors. The end result is reliable high performance connectivity that helps these operators reach a greater customer base and offer a significantly better quality of service.”
The CombiMODULE fits in street cabinets, where it supports full coverage fiber optic distribution in cities and residential areas. The housing occupies ten units in the 19” cabinet and the module accommodates up to 1152 spliced fiber optic connections or up to 576 Small Form Factor (SFF) or 288 Big Form Factor (BFF) plug connections. Quick mounting technology simplifies mounting from the front in standard distribution frames, whether for initial installation or for existing racks.
The two-part housing has room for any combinations of splice and patch units to connect and distribute optical fibers reliably. For splice cabling, R&M offers its single circuit management (SCM) system. It consists of easy-to-use trays for the management of fibers. The carrier tray can be folded out and serves as a work table during installation and maintenance. A splice unit can hold as many as 96 SCM trays for 1152 fiber optic connections.
The patch unit is the counterpart to the splice unit. It holds up to twelve inserts to accommodate a total of 576 plug connections. All types of coupling usual in the market can be used, e.g. LC duplex, SC, E2000 SCRJ or E2000 TM• compact. R&M also has inserts for processes involving splitter applications and multiplexing such as CWDM or DWDM. R&M makes available all variations completely pre-terminated as well.
The CombiMODULE is part of the ODF-SCM program from R&M. The ODF-SCM glass fiber distribution frame can likewise be equipped flexibly with modules and the SCM system. Almost no tools are needed for installation. In a configuration geared to the standards of ETSI (the European Telecommunications Standards Institute), up to 4608 splice or 2304 plug connections fit in a cabinet 900mm by 300mm by 2200mm in size. The ODF-SCM frame can be configured according to individual specifications, too.
The ODF-SCM program supports current expansion strategies of FO network operators such as point to point (P2P), point to multipoint (P2MP) or WDM-PON. The ODF frame is used in main distribution frame applications, exchanges, hubs or collocation rooms. The distribution frame consists of light-weight, easy-to-mount aluminum sections and sturdy metal rear panels.
