With a wide range of indoor and indoor/outdoor fiber cable types, cable assemblies, enclosures, jumpers, pigtails and field termination systems, Siemon’s fiber optic cabling systems are ideal for everything fiber—from the backbone to the desk.
Siemon XGLO Fiber Optic Cabling Systems utilize bend-insensitive laser-optimized multimode fiber and advanced bend-insensitive singlemode fiber to support the very latest fiber applications. Included in the XGLO family is Siemon’s innovative LC BladePatch® Uniboot Fiber Assemblies that ease access and removal in high-density environments and the LightBow™ Fiber Termination System that significantly reduces termination time and improves performance.
For companies that do not yet require speeds beyond 10 Gb/s, but still need a quality legacy fiber system to support Gigabit Ethernet applications, LightSystem 62.5 multimode fiber cable and assemblies are an ideal solution.
LC BladePatch Uniboot Innovation
A unique solution for high-density fiber optic patching environments, Siemon's LC BladePatch uniboot duplex assemblies provide superior performance for multimode and singlemode fiber applications. They feature a revolutionary and innovative push-pull boot design to control the latch, enabling easy access and removal in tight-fitting areas and a smaller-diameter cable design that reduces cable pathway congestion, improving air flow and increasing energy efficiency while simplifying overall cable management.
- Patented rotating latch design (multimode and UPC singlemode) allows for easy polarity changes in the field while eliminating potential fiber damage as only the latch rotates during polarity changes, rather than the entire connector. It also clearly indicates if a polarity change has been made.
- UniClick™ one-piece boot features an integrated switch to unlock the mechanism to allow polarity change. The compact boot design also optimizes side-stackability in high density applications
- Available in multimode and singlemode (UPC and APC) jumpers as well as LC BladePatch to LC BladePatch trunks and MTP to LC BladePatch trunks as a cost-effective alternative for a wide range of patching configurations and distances.

LightBow Fiber Termination System
A cost-effective mechanical splice system that cuts field termination in half with its lightweight, ergonomic, easy-to-use tool that combines splice activation and crimp into a single, robust process, LightBow offers enhanced performance and reliability of LC/SC multimode and singlemode fiber termination.
- Single-step termination supports Both LC and SC multimode and singlemode connector types with no time-consuming changeover
- Connector dust cap remains in place throughout termination, protecting performance-critical connector end face
- Bow feature maintains proper pressure of fiber ends during termination to eliminate air gaps
- Connectors feature a built-in verification window and the ability to reterminate
- LightBow Termination Kit includes a convenient carrying case with everything required for termination, including the termination tool, high-precision cleaver and 0.5 mW VFL
Fiber Enclosures, Management and Support
Siemon offers a wide range of rack-mount and wall-mount fiber enclosures and panels to support a wide range of densities and applications using a variety of modules and adapter plates.
- The Rack Mount Interconnect Center (RIC3) comes in 96-port (2U), 144-port (2U), 192-port (3U) and 288-port (4U) versions and is compatible with Quick-Pack™ adapter plates and modules, offering superior accessibility, cable management, port identification and security. They are also available preloaded with adapters and pigtails for patch and splice applications.
- The Wall Mount Interconnect Center (SWIC3) is a cost-effective, low-profile fiber enclosure designed to manage and protect fibers in areas where wall space is a premium. It accepts Siemon’s Quick-Pack adapter plates and comes in a variety of sizes including the mini SWIC3.
- RIC 19-inch rack mount fiber panels available in 1 and 4 RU sizes accept Quick-Pack fiber adapter plates and modules can be installed in racks, cabinets and enclosures to support various fiber applications in data centers, LANs and passive optical networks.
- Siemon’s Fiber Connect Panels (FCP3-DWR and FCP3-RACK) accept Quick-Pack adapter plates and economically connect, protect, and manage up to 72 fibers in 1U (up to 288 fibers with MTP to MTP adapters)
