Siemon Adds LC Fiber Optic Adapter Lock to its LockIT™ Line of Secure Network Accessories

Innovative adapter lock can be used to secure LC optical fiber ports in data center equipment, patching fields and work areas

Watertown, CT — Siemon, a global leader in network infrastructure, announces the launch of its LockIT LC optical fiber adapter lock. Joining Siemon's LockIT line of secure network connectivity, this new, tamper-proof adapter lock protects against unauthorized access to unused LC ports. The adapter locks require no special connectivity and can be utilized to secure nearly any LC optical fiber-based network infrastructure. The LockIT system is designed to provide physical layer security without adding complexity or impacting overall functionality and density.

The LockIT adapter lock snaps securely into any industry-standard LC port, blocking cord access and preventing tampering. Removable only with a specially designed key, the lock fits flush within the port, providing full access to adjacent ports regardless of density, and it is brightly colored to allow network personnel to quickly identify locked ports. These new secure components are system and cabling performance independent, allowing it to secure any active equipment LC port, or passive LC patching, plug and play or work area port..

The Siemon LockIT product family also includes a comprehensive line of secure copper RJ-45 network connectivity, including a tamper-proof RJ45 outlet lock and lockable patch cords in shielded and UTP 10Gb/s category 6A and category 6 configurations. The LockIT RJ-45 copper outlet lock, patch cord and new LC fiber adapter lock all utilize the same universal key, included with the system.

"The obvious benefit is a very cost-effective and easily-implemented deterrent against malicious access to the network through unsecured connectivity," explained Tony Veatch, Siemon Director of Product Management. "But LockIT is also an excellent way to protect against accidental connectivity errors, acting like a 'lock-out/tag-out' system for the network infrastructure. We see great interest in such a solution in public areas including conference rooms, airports and classrooms. This simple, effective product is suitable for industries such as transportation, finance, retail, hospitality, and education, as well as in mission critical data center applications."
