“Network managers need rapid deployment and space efficiency to cope with the accelerated need for bandwidth due to increased mobile traffic, big data demands, and other factors,” said Jaxon Lang, general manager and vice president of Broadband Network Solutions for Central and North America, CommScope. “Our Enhanced High Density NGF system promotes speed and efficiency by delivering outstanding density and flexibility.”
CommScope has significantly enhanced its Next Generation Frame (NGF) portfolio by introducing
an Enhanced High Density NGF to help data center owners and operators plan and
deploy solutions for more bandwidth. The
new frame accommodates increased fiber density blocks to seamlessly add fiber
terminations without requiring significant changes to the data center layout
while conserving floor space.
The new frame is seven feet tall and 24 inches deep and can be installed
directly next to existing traditional 30-inch wide NGF frames. The
pre-terminated fiber blocks eliminate the need to individually plug in hundreds
of connectors at the rear of the panel, thus replacing a large number of
installation steps. Installers plug pre-terminated MPO assemblies directly into
modules at the rear, which distribute trunk fibers into 10G
or 40G channels at the front. All pre-populated blocks are factory tested, assembled,
and packaged to provide maximum craft friendliness. Pre-terminated blocks with
cable stubs are also available.
“Network managers need rapid deployment and space efficiency to cope
with the accelerated need for bandwidth due to increased mobile traffic, big
data demands, and other factors,” said Jaxon Lang, general manager and vice
president of Broadband Network Solutions for Central and North America,
CommScope. “Our Enhanced High Density NGF system promotes speed and efficiency
by delivering outstanding density and flexibility.”
The Enhanced High Density NGF and pre-loaded fiber blocks support rapid
and cost-effective deployment with the following features:
- Exceptional fiber density
with improved front and rear connector access, simplified patching and ample
cable management provisions
- Blocks are available in 288
count, LC-MPO and 288 count LC-stub versions.
- Single mode blocks are
available in 10, 40 and 100 G formats
- Assured performance – Each
module is pre-tested in the factory, and test data is traceable via a bar code
to a test database
- Packaging protects the
connectorized blocks and speeds “bolt-in” installation
- Modules are clearly marked
for simplified labeling and documentation
