CommScope Enterprise Solutions, a division of CommScope, Inc. (NYSE:CTV), has introduced the InstaPATCH® 360 System, the newest installment to its next-generation SYSTIMAX 360TM solution platform. Developed by CommScope Labs, InstaPATCH 360 is a factory-terminated and -tested modular fiber connectivity solution that enables installers to simply and quickly connect system components together, ultimately resulting in improved density, performance and reliability.

“Our SYSTIMAX 360 products are turning heads around the world because it’s the first solution platform that seamlessly integrates copper, fiber and intelligence to form the ultimate network infrastructure solution,” said Luc Adriaenssens, senior vice president, R&D and Technology, CommScope Enterprise Solutions. “With the addition of InstaPATCH 360, data center designers now have a system that further improves density and system performance in the data center while keeping costs lower–completely redefining expectations for the data center.”

Created under the revolutionary SYSTIMAX 360 design philosophy, the InstaPATCH 360 System includes modules and pass-through panels which offer improved density, are reverse compatible with standard SYSTIMAX 360 shelves and are intelligence-ready. The trunk cables, rugged fan-outs and array cords are constructed with an industry leading loose fiber cable design, minimizing stress on the optical fiber. In addition, the cable assemblies are terminated with CommScope’s patented process for application of the MPO connector to a round cable sub-unit.

Smaller and more compact than its industry counterparts, each InstaPATCH 360 Modular Panel comes enhanced with key features intended to provide simplified cable management and maximize air flow within the data center.

Other key features of the InstaPATCH 360 System:

  • Incorporates SYSTIMAX LazrSPEED®, OptiSPEED® and TeraSPEED® fiber technologies – including LazrSPEED 550, whose performance specifications are reflected in the recent OM4 standard – to support today’s most demanding applications, while allowing easy migration to next-generation technology.
  • Modules are equipped with translucent integrated dust covers that will help simplify connecting fiber components and can have up to 24 fibers.
  • Modular system approach enables up to 96 fibers to be ready for service in the time it takes to make a single fiber connection with traditional systems.
  • Compatibility with the SYSTIMAX® G2 Modular Cassette System (and some SYSTIMAX® InstaPATCH® Plus components), providing customers with the capability to reduce shelf volume and achieve 96 LC connections in a one rack unit (1U) shelf.
  • For ultra high density solutions, MPO adapter panels and ruggedized fan-out or array cable assemblies can be used to reach a density of 384 fibers in one rack unit (1U) shelf. The 4U Modular Shelf can accommodate 1152 fibers. CommScope plans to extend the 4U Modular Panel fiber count to 1536 fibers before year end.

“InstaPATCH 360, like our original InstaPATCH Plus system, enables installers to simply and quickly connect system components together,” added Kevin Paschal, product manager, Fiber Optic Solutions, CommScope Enterprise Solutions. “However, the new solution comes equipped with design features that provide enhanced cable management capabilities while minimizing restrictions to air flow that is vital for cooling. Ultimately, with InstaPATCH 360, we are reducing the bulk of system components, improving the life of electronics and reducing power consumption and system costs throughout the data center – all considerations that are vital in today’s data center environment.”

The InstaPATCH 360 System will have its first public appearance at the IP Expo - Europe's leading IP and Convergence event – in London on October 7. The solution will also be featured in addition to the other SYSTIMAX 360 solutions, at the CommScope 360 Roadshow Series which kicks off in Los Angeles on October 13. This Roadshow Series will take in 13 cities in the North America region, designed to showcase the latest innovations in copper, fiber and intelligent network infrastructure solutions.
