Siemon introduces XGLO RazorCore fibre trunking assemblies

XGLO RazorCore

Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has expanded its comprehensive line of fibre trunking solutions with XGLO™ RazorCore™ assemblies. Siemon's RazorCore cables have a significantly reduced cable outside diameter (OD) for maximum space savings and optimised air flow.

Available in OM3 and OM4 laser-optimised multimode fibre and in singlemode fibre, XGLO RazorCore assemblies provide an efficient, cost-effective alternative to individual field-terminated components. By combining the performance of factory termination with the reduced OD of Siemon's RazorCore fibre, these new assemblies ensure both superior reliability and space utilisation in data centres, Storage Area Networks (SANs) and Local Area Networks (LANs), while offering up to 75 per cent faster deployment over traditional field termination. Compatible with all Siemon fibre enclosures, the new XGLO RazorCore assemblies feature an optional encapsulated protection sleeve with cable pulling eye to fully protect the fibres during installation.

"When selecting a fibre optic solution for our data centres, we wanted a solution that was fully scalable and allowed for the maximum density possible," says customer Jean François Tremblay, data centre manager at Orange Business Services (a subsidiary of France Telecom), who recently installed XGLO RazorCore fibre trunking assemblies. "With Siemon's reduced diameter RazorCore plug and play trunks we were confident that the product could accommodate future growth both in space, due to the reductions in tray and pathway fill, and bandwidth, as requirements approach 40 and 100 Gb/s, with a straight-forward upgrade path."

"Siemon precision cable assemblies are 100 per cent inspected for superior performance and enhance the installation method popular in today's data centres. By expanding our offering with smaller diameter RazorCore assemblies, our customers also obtain an average 50 per cent size reduction compared to traditional assemblies," says Kevin Stronkowsky, fibre optic product manager at Siemon. "This results in less cable tray fill, reduced pathway restrictions and better airflow - all of which support higher densities with improved efficiency and reduced cost."

Warranted for 20 years, XGLO RazorCore fibre assemblies come with 900µm simplex breakout, 2.0mm duplex breakout, simplex and duplex SC or LC connector types, as well as SC-LC hybrid options. The RoHS-compliant assemblies are available in a variety of jacket ratings, including riser, plenum and low-smoke, zero halogen. Available with 12, 24, 36 or 48 fibre counts, custom assemblies are easily created with Siemon's flexible part number scheme to meet specific customer specifications and performance needs. Each XGLO RazorCore assembly is designated for proper connector orientation, coded with a unique identification number and individually packaged with a dual shelf reel to protect connectivity during payout.
