FD panel, multimode MPO-8 breakout panel
CommScope is adding a multimode version to its recently introduced FD panel. The FD fiber patch panel interfaces with MPO-8 ports including QSFP to easily break them out into LC connections. 1U panels have 10 MPO-8 connections and 2U panels have 20 MPO-8 connections.
This is a great panel to use for port replication or mirroring when connecting to a spine switch. The MPO and LC ports are both front facing and bundled for easy mapping and patching.

New fiber splicing panel: SD-4U-SPLICE
The CommScope SD-4U-SPLICE is a 4U splicing panel which allows up to 1728 fiber mass fusion splicing. It features a sliding tray and easy to access splice trays. The panel holds six, 288f mass fusion stackable splice trays which can be added as your data center needs grow. This panel is ideal for densities lower than the FEC. It can be used as an in-row or Entrance Facility splicing solution.

Ultra Low Loss LC Uniboot patch cords
The latest in fiber optic LC Uniboot connector design is equipped on CommScope's new ultra low loss (ULL) patch cords. This new offering is comprised of multimode OM4, OM5 wideband, as well as singlemode G.657.A2 fiber cabling types. Patch cords using Uniboot technology combine modularity and flexibility with connectivity ease of insertion and removal. The Uniboot connectors feature an adjustable polarity via a manual and independent rotation of each individual connector body without exposing the fibers, as well as, a push-pull mechanism.

12-port, 8-foot antenna addition to NNH4 family
Region: North America
The NNH4 family of 12-port antennas has expanded to include an 8-foot model (NNH4-65C-R6-V3) that features a tilt range of 0-10°, providing improved interference performance—particularly in the 1695-2360 MHz band. This antenna is designed with superior sector power ratio (SPR) and consistent pattern performance across all tilts and all ports to reduce cell overlap, minimize noise in the network, and ensure high data throughput.

12-port, side-by-side antennas — new to NNH4 family
Region: North America
Two new additions to the NNH4 family of 12-port antennas feature 4 ports for Low Band and 8 ports for High Band, providing complete 4T4R capability in a single antenna for Band 14, AWS, PCS and WCS band applications. Models NNH4-65A-R6H4 (4.5 ft.) and NNH4-65B-R6H4 (6 ft.) are side-by-side (non-stacked) high band array designs that deliver higher gain with a narrower vertical beamwidth than traditional antenna designs. These antennas offer superior sector power ratio (SPR) and consistent pattern performance across all tilts and all ports to reduce cell overlap, minimize noise in the network, and ensure high data throughput.
