Data Center Cable
NORCROSS, Ga., Sept. 16, 2016 — OFS Fitel LLC has announced AccuRiser Indoor/Outdoor Ribbon Cable designed to offer high-fiber density and speed of deployment in the backbone of data center and central office networks.
The cable allows engineers and technicians to bypass the building entrance terminal and route the cable directly to where it is needed. The gel-free construction of the AccuRiser Cable also has the benefit of helping to reduce cable preparation time for splicing. Technicians can open and prepare the device for splicing by up to 90 minutes faster than comparable gel-filled outside plant (OSP) cabling. The cable is designed as a high-fiber-count solution ranging from 288 to 864 fibers supporting modern data center structures. The high-fiber count capacity allows a single solution to be used for data centers by eliminating the need for multiple runs of smaller fiber count cables.
Ideally suited for data center interconnect applications, the AccuRiser Cable supports campus interconnections between data center buildings while also eliminating costly splicing between OSP and indoor cables. It meets the demands of the outdoor route between buildings while providing the fire rating needs of indoor installations.
