Legrand | Ortronics Introduces OptiMo® HD Fiber Optic Solutions

High Density Solutions Provide Space-Savings for Data Center Environments

NEW LONDON, CT--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) - Legrand | Ortronics, a global leader in high performance network infrastructure solutions, introduces OptiMo High Density (HD) fiber optic solutions. OptiMo HD solutions include high density rack-mount fiber enclosures, adapter panels, and pre-terminated cassettes, all specifically designed for space-constrained installations.

OptiMo HD rack-mount enclosures are available in 1U, 2U, 3U, and 4U versions. The enclosures accept reduced-width adapter panels and cassettes, allowing for a 33 percent increase in terminations per unit of rack space over standard density products. A complete OptiMo HD solution can provide up to 384 fibers in a 4U enclosure, saving valuable rack space for active equipment.

OptiMo HD solutions include Momentum 4 (M4) pre-terminated cassettes and HDFP-series adapter panels in LC-quad and MPO configurations. Ortronics high density fusion splice tray and heat shrink sleeves provide additional protection and storage for fiber cables and splices. Using a comprehensive OptiMo HD solution provides a complete fiber patching solution that is ideal for data centers and SAN environments where space is at a premium.

OptiMo HD solutions provide the same premium performance and reliability of Ortronics standard density fiber products and are optimized for use with Ortronics® Mighty Mo® equipment racks and cabinets.
