Siemon Enhances Singlemode Fiber Offering with Uni-Boot APC LC BladePatch
October 11, 2018. Watertown, CT - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced that it has enhanced its comprehensive line of LightHouse™ Advanced Fiber Cabling Solutions with a new APC BladePatch® Uni-boot duplex singlemode fiber jumper in response to increasing fiber densities and the growing demand for APC connectivity that offers improved return loss performance for high-speed fiber links.
Siemon’s new LC APC BladePatch® Uni-boot duplex jumper features the company’s patented revolutionary BladePatch low-profile push-pull boot design for easy access and removal in tight-fitting areas such as high-density fiber patching for switches, blade servers and storage equipment. Utilizing ITU-T G.657.A1 bend-insensitive singlemode fiber and a smaller-diameter uni-tube cable design, the LC APC BladePatch reduces cable pathway congestion, improving air flow and increasing energy efficiency while simplifying overall cable management.
“In recent years, we’ve seen a growing need for better return loss performance and APC singlemode connectivity for connecting carrier services and supporting higher-speed protocols in data center, long haul and FTTX environments,” explains Kevin Stronkowsky, product manager for Siemon. “The fiber endface of an APC connector features an 8-degree angle that provides better reflection performance versus UPC connectors. We are extremely pleased to expand our APC singlemode offering with the patented push-pull design of our already popular LC BladePatch.”
Siemon’s LightHouse™ APC singlemode offering also includes fiber patch cords, fiber pigtails, pre-terminated fiber trunks and connectivity.
