A rack mount fiber enclosure is usually designed for the standard 19-inch rack frame used in most data centers or telecommunication closets. All units are 19” wide, and some have 23” brackets for larger racks. Panels come in a variety of vertical footprints, generally specified as a rack unit (RU). For instance, a 1RU rack mount is 1.75” high and a 2RU rack mount is 3.50” high. However, depending on the number of connections, rack mounts can go up to 42RU (about 73 inches, the height of the full rack frame). 1RU, 2RU and 4RU are the most common sizes readily available.
A wall mount fiber enclosure features a more low-profile, compact design. Wall mount panels are a great choice for securing and protecting your fiber network in areas where space may be limited. Wall mount panels are designed to be fixed onto a wall where cable is entering a premises or termination point. Just as in a rack mount version, they provide a network termination point while maintaining organization and protection from damage.
The fiber optic adapter panel (also known as the fiber optic patch panel) is a tool often used in the distribution of fiber optic networks. These panels are commonly installed in rack and wall mount distribution panels in order to manage and organize fiber. As the fiber easily snaps into the panel enclosures, cables may be patched or spliced to create several connection points – this offers a simpler and more compact solution for connectivity.
High-Density MPO Fiber Distribution Cassettes
High-Density MPO Fiber Distribution Cassettes offer unsurpassed fiber density and are designed to be used in conjuction with High Density Panels. Each cassette contains a fanout assembly that transitions from a MPO 12 fiber connector to 6 LC duplex pairs. Cassettes are designed to be installed with LC Uniboot assemblies for the highest density available. Panel and cassette combination is capable of supporting 144 fibers in 1RU, 288 fibers in 2RU and 576 fiber in 4RU.
MPO Fiber Distribution Cassettes
Megladon MPO Fiber Distribution Cassettes are pre-terminated fanout modules that support the deployment of multifiber cables. The MPO cassette serves to breakout the MPO connector into simplex and duplex style connectors so that they can be connected to adjacent network elements. These cassettes are available in industry standard LGX footprints, and can be installed in Megladon Distribution boxes.
3D Printed MTP Fiber Distribution Cassettes
Custom 3D Printed MTP Fiber Distribution Cassettes support the deployment of multifiber cables and are designed to create a fully functional fiber fanout that matches your company’s themed branding. These fanout modules serve to breakout the MTP connector into simplex and duplex style connectors so that they can be connected to adjacent network elements via patch cords. Our cassettes can be made to fit any form factor and since these are printed on-demand using our Carbon M2 printer, maintaining your inventory should never be a problem.
MPO / MTP® Fanout & Trunk Cables
Megladon offers a full suite of MPO / MTP® Fanout & Trunk Cables that can be custom built for any application. All cables come factory terminated and pre-tested, ensuring top performance and ease of installation. Fanout assemblies can be built with any single fiber connector and any major fiber type. These cables are designed to work in conjunction without MPO Fiber Distribution products.
MPO / MTP® Fiber Patch Cables
Megladon manufactures MPO / MTP® Fiber Patch Cables to the highest standards, and utilizes the highest quality materials the industry has to offer. All cables are fully tested to exceed industry performance and geometry standards. Our MPO / MTP cables are designed to support high density deployments, and compliment our other MPO / MTP distribution products.
MPO Ribbon Pigtails
Megladon’s Fiber Optic MPO Ribbon Pigtails enable rapid deployment of a high-density backbone / horizontal cabling by significantly reducing installation time, cable / connector footprint and cost. This product enables you to splice into networks with ribbon splicers 12x faster than traditional connectors. MPO also offers up to 12x the density of standard connectors and reduces the amount of front patch panel adapter space compared to traditional discrete connectors as well. These MPO pigtail assemblies feature color coded fibers for easy splice identification, and the MPO interface is compatible with next generation networks and parallel optics protocols.
High-Density Rack Mount Fiber Management Panels
Megladon’s High-Density Rack Mount Fiber Management Panels offers unsurpassed fiber density and performance. Panels are capable of supporting 144 fibers in 1RU, 288 fibers in 2RU and 576 fiber in 4RU. The panels support High-Density MPO Distribution Cassettes that allow for scalable MPO deployments, and have built in fiber management components.
