Tailoring Our Cabling Specs to Your Needs: Part Two

R-Diaz Ricardo Diaz April 28, 2015
Pink_Tape_MeasureI recently wrote a blog post explained the benefits of our new Copper Performance Specifications document. The new copper specifications document provides readers with a comprehensive compilation of the copper cabling specs we released during the past few years, as well as some our latest applications. In this blog, I will explain the benefits of our new Fiber Performance Specifications document.

This customizable document is a compilation of technical specifications created by CommScope engineers and includes supported distances for 109 applications (for example, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, Infiniband, OIF, ESCON and IEEE 1394).

With more than 730 tables in 178 pages, this incredible amount of data is difficult to skim when you are searching for the supported distance for your channel configuration. With our new customization form, you can pick the applications you use more often, discard the others or create your own specs document for future use.

You can also filter by:

  • Connectors types
  • Fiber types
  • Unit lengths
  • Solution type (with or without MPO connections; with or without TAP modules)
  • Optical split at the TAP modules

We are trying to target worldwide users so you can save your customized document in A4 or letter format. We hope the new formats and features to enable users to make the most of the document.

We expect both the copper and fiber performance specifications documents achieved our objective, but we won’t know unless you tell us. Please post a comment below to let me know.
