HD8² High-Density Fiber Optic Deployment Solution

Increase your data networking capacity with HD8² High-Density fiber optic data center solutions. Current fiber optic connectors use a standard of 12 channels of glass with 4 channels being wasted! Our HD8² connectors and cassettes use a base of 8 channels of glass and none are wasted. Data centers operate based on a base of 8 fibers so they can use our HD8 high-density products to pack more fibers into less space and save money while doing it. The 8 and 16 fiber channels and connectors we provide can accommodate 100G, 400G, 800G, and TeraBit speeds. HD8 products are perfectly aligned with hitting 800G speeds for existing and future gigabit fiber switches including Cisco Nexus 9500 fiber switches and other data center fiber optics network equipment.

For every fiber optic standard, we’ve got the glass to handle it.

The new HD8² High Density Fiber Optic Deployment Solution is the MTP fiber patch cable system that meets these needs. It includes a rack mountable chassis capable of accommodating up to twelve rear entry molded cassettes in a 1U space. The reduced footprint cassettes are completely customizable at the front and rear points of entry, have an internal strain relief ring, and an external HDReadyPull® snap-on pulling eye cap for ease of installation. Most of today’s high density data center “targeted” patching systems have a cassette format attempting to maximize chassis density, but they are not conducive to easy installation and cable routing through existing ladder racks, innerduct, and raised floor systems due to size. HD8² cassettes are rear entry loaded and can be “hard wired” with the HDReadyLink® utilizing terminated optic fiber cable and a Heyco® strain relief. A pulling eye cap facilitates the installation of the cassettes through ladder rack, innerduct, or raised floor applications. The internal strain relief and eye ring are used in conjunction with fiber optic cable Kevlar to provide strength. The cassettes can also be loaded with internal fiber harnesses connected via a separate terminated elite trunk cable.
