Molex OptoConnect Custom Optical Enclosures
Molex OptoConnect Custom Optical Enclosures offer a high-density fiber optic routing management solution that integrates sophisticated fiber circuitry features.
Molex Incorporated launched its OptoConnect Custom Optical Enclosures, which are designed to simplify complex fiber optic mapping issues. The OptoConnect fiber-routing system uses integrated FlexPlane circuitry for a complete end-to-end optical management system for high-density telecom and datacom equipment used in communication systems for aerospace and defense networks.
“Advanced network architectures are driving complex fiber optic interconnection topologies, which are nearly impossible to implement with patch-cord-based connections,” said Tom Marrapode, director of marketing, Molex.
Fully tested and NEBS-compliant, OptoConnect custom fiber optic enclosures handle the most complex routing schemes to greatly reduce intra-system cabling footprints and increase system reliability. By integrating high-density fiber optic circuits, interconnects, and optional passive components, the sophisticated OptoConnect enclosure system can streamline complex ingress and egress fiber port mapping for interconnect-intensive technologies, including mesh networks, wavelength selective switching, and software-defined networking/network function virtualization topologies.
Complementary products such as MPO and LC loopback connectors and MTP/MPO LC cable assemblies fill out the offering to provide a complete optical interconnect solution set. Customers also have the option to have Molex design an enclosure to meet their product specifications or use their own internal design that complements their equipment styles.
