Is the 24 fibre connectivity method really clear?

A number of legacy data centres were designed for 10G application where the backbone was based on MPO 12-fibre connectors. The previous version of the TIA standard (TIA-568-C3) described three basic connectivity methods A, B and C, which all companies adopted and implemented into their projects over time. The situation became more difficult when companies designed data centres for 40G and 100G and designed backbone networks with MPO connectors with 24 fibres.

CPR regulation goes into effect

CPR, also known as the “Construction Products Regulation” – one of the most recently discussed topics in the European fiber optic community – has been in effect since 1 July 2017.

CPR means Construction Products Regulation – a new regulation for cable usage

You may have heard about CPR in recent days; herewith we’d like to explain in a condensed form what CPR is and how this regulation impacts businesses with cable products.

24-fiber MPO/MTP solution – still an attractive approach

Multi-fiber connectivity is one of the hottest talking points in fiber optic connectivity. Many white papers, webinars and blogs lean heavily toward the 12-fiber approach. It can easily be overlooked that there are other multi-fiber solutions available as well. We can cite Cisco Systems as an example of an industry leader that decided to set up some new products based on 24-fiber MPO connectors. In this article we’ll take a look at the interconnection which forms the backbone of such a system.

New extension of Sylex’s premises

Sylex is pleased to announce that this year it has accomplished the first stage of its plan to extend the premises by investing more than 3 million €. The new buildings are integrated into the original premises and bring a capacity of 1100 pallet spaces in a new central warehouse, and a production floor space of 3.900 square meters, which corresponds to a production floor area increase of 150%. All this provides a great opportunity to achieve higher capacity, efficiency and productivity.

SYLEX fiber assemblies allow scientists in CERN to discover extremely rare physics events

SYLEX produced customized ribbon assemblies for high-speed computer card in order to support scientists in CERN to discover extremely rare physics events in CMS experiment.

Where are the IL limits for 10, 40 and 100Gbps applications

The increased demand for datacenters rose up the question about the connections performances necessary for two network point’s interconnection. This white paper deals with the present and future possibilities of managing a datacenter by using the available technology for interconnections based on multifiber connectors such as MTP®.
