Siemon is proud to introduce a completely new and expanded line of high-performance MTP plug and play fiber optic cabling solutions. Constructed of high-quality fiber optic cable and components for future-proof support of critical data center links including 10 Gb/s as well as future 40 and 100 Gb/s applications, the Siemon plug and play system's factory terminated and tested connections guarantee maximum channel throughput without the performance variability of field terminations. This turnkey solution can be ordered to fit the application then simply pulled and connected - a simple approach allowing high performance data center links to be deployed 75% faster than traditional field terminations. Beyond installation speed, Siemon plug and play products provide a "greener" approach, eliminating the waste associated with additional connectors, termination kits and other consumables.

The Siemon plug and play system includes new low-profile MTP to LC or SC modules, MTP pass-through adapter plates and an extensive offering of pre-terminated MTP to MTP, and MTP to LC cable assemblies.

Newly designed to be lightweight, low profile and easier to install, Siemon plug and play modules feature 12 fiber MTP connections at the rear of each module, providing up to 24 LC or 12 SC connections in the patching field via simple snap-in mounting within standard Siemon RICŪ and FCPT fiber enclosures and VersaPODT vertical patch panels. The modules provide optimized adapter spacing for easy finger access to fiber jumper latches in high-density patching environments as well as reduced mounting depth to maximize cable management space in fiber enclosures. In addition to plug and play modules, Siemon also offers "pass-through" MTP adapter plates, designed to support up to 6 MTP-to-MTP connections in a single adapter plate.

Siemon plug and play modules and adapters are supported by a wide array of factory-terminated cable assemblies that combine Siemon's reduced-diameter RazorCoreT cable with 12-fiber MTP connectors. MTP-to-MTP reels are designed to be quickly pulled and connected to plug and play Modules and MTP adapter plates. Available in 12 to 144 fiber counts in increments of 12 fibers and in custom lengths, these reels are user-configurable to precise application requirements and efficiently put high-performance, high-density fiber connections exactly where they are needed.

Siemon's plug and play cable assembly line also includes new MTP to LC trunking assemblies that offer a connectivity transition from 12-fiber MTP connectorized RazorCore cable to duplex LC connector breakouts. These trunks may be implemented with Siemon's MTP adapter plates to provide flexible direct MTP to LC patching options over a wide range of distances and infrastructure configurations. Additionally, Siemon offers a cost effective hydra option for creating direct MTP to LC equipment connections, typically in connections within a rack or cabinet. MTP to LC Hydras plug directly into an MTP reel via an MTP Adaptor and provide up to 12 jacketed LC (6 duplex) "legs", eliminating the need for fiber jumpers.

All Siemon plug and play products are available in Multimode (62.5/125, Standard 50/125 and Laser Optimized 50/125) and Singlemode fiber types. Assembly jacket ratings include riser, plenum and LSOH.
