Legrand | Ortronics Introduces Mighty Mo® Fiber Raceway

A Dedicated Pathway for Critical Network Cabling

NEW LONDON, CT--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) - Legrand | Ortronics, a global leader in high performance network infrastructure solutions, introduces Mighty Mo® Fiber Raceway, a dedicated pathway for critical network cabling. It is a unique overhead system that routes and protects fiber optic cords between termination equipment, patch panels and fiber optic splicing cabinets or frames. Fiber Raceway is simple to configure and install above equipment racks, below runway or cable tray. It provides an easily accessible solution to any situation.

Mighty Mo Fiber Raceway is made from Noryl®, a halogen free, zero dust plastic. It is certified to the UL2024A standard. Fiber Raceway is fire retardant, metal free and RoHS compliant. The selection is extensive: Legrand | Ortronics carries 300 SKUs across 23 product groupings. There is a range of 5 sizes available to provide a more customized solution for data centers, telecommunications exchanges, universities, hospitals or anywhere fiber optic cabling is present. Mighty Mo Fiber Raceway is a flexible and modular data center cabling solution that allows additional pathway elements to be easily and safely added in the field, even after fiber optic cable has been installed.

Mighty Mo Fiber Raceway supports and complements the OptiMo® Fiber Optic product line and Mighty Mo racks and cabinets. Together, the Legrand | Ortronics physical infrastructure and pathway products provide complete cable management solutions to route and protect fiber, resulting in improved network performance.

Mighty Mo Fiber Raceway is part of Layer Zero®. Layer Zero is the proposed infrastructure layer for the ISO/OSI model introduced by Legrand | Ortronics. Layer Zero -- the Infrastructure Layer™ -- addresses the critical role that the physical infrastructure plays in network performance. Layer Zero solutions encompass the entire physical infrastructure that supports your network, including aisle containment, racks, cabinets, advanced cable management, copper and fiber pathway solutions, underfloor and overhead systems. By recognizing the importance of the underlying infrastructure layer and emphasizing best practices in pathway and physical support design, a new level of stability can be created for the network.
