Product Developments Allow for Increased Cabling Capacity in the Data Center

SYRACUSE, N.Y., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CABLExpress announced today at NY Tech Summit that it has reduced the diameter and weight of its Skinny-Trunk® fiber optic trunk cables to allow for increased capacity and ease of cable management in data center infrastructure systems.

CABLExpress Transforms its Skinny-Trunk Fiber Optic Trunks with 18 Percent Diameter and 47 Percent Weight Reductions

Changes in the Skinny-Trunk fiber trunks include:

  • Reduction in overall cable diameter by an average of 18 percent across all fiber counts
  • Decrease in weight of trunks by an average of 47 percent across all fiber counts
  • Reduction of MTP® breakout legs by 33 percent, from 3 mm to 2 mm

"These fiber trunks will help organizations maximize the overall efficiency of their data centers," said Lisa Belodoff, vice president of CABLExpress. "Our engineering team works in partnership with our customers to develop solutions for issues they're dealing with on a daily basis. These enhancements will not only make their jobs easier, but provide a clear benefit when evaluating total cost of ownership of the IT infrastructure spend."

In addition to the physical changes in the Skinny-Trunk fiber trunks, the enhancements also allow for a decreased bend radius of the cabling.

"The bend radius impacts overall performance because the lower the bend radius, the lower the potential for signal loss," said Kent Goldsmith, RCDD, DCDC, engineering manager at CABLExpress. "By reducing the opportunities for signal loss and network downtime, organizations are also minimizing the risk of disrupting the critical business processes that their customers, patients or students rely on."

The enhanced Skinny-Trunk fiber trunks are part of the CABLExpress Skinny-Trunk Solution.
