3M™ Volition™ ENERGY EFFICIENT Fiber Solution
3M MPO Connectivity
3M offers a state of the
art connectivity for data center cabling. The patented modular
construction combines highest port density with the typical
3M ease of installation. The 19" sub-rack patch panel
accommodates up to 4 pre-connected modules with a port
density of 24 LC connections per module. A total of 96 LC
connectors can be connected on one height unit. The rear
side of the module has two entry ports for 12 fibre MPO
ribbon backplane cables. The strain relief of the MPO
backplane cable can be fixed with cable ties directly on the
backplane of the modules. This allows full front access
termination without the need to remove the 19" sub- rack and
does not require a two part sliding construction of the subrack.
These installer friendly modules are available as preterminated
12- port MPO/LC duplex or as 12 port LC/LC
duplex straight through versions. The connection between
two panels is done by either MPO/MPO or MPO/LC preterminated
backplane 12 fibre ribbon cables with 50/125μm
OM 3 fibres inside. The same fibre is used in the modules.
3M™ No Polish Connector (NPC) enables fast, on-site
installation of 250 μm and 900 μm connections utilizing a one
piece, pre-assembled design.
The SC/LC compatible connector consists of a factorypolished
ceramic ferrule, fiber stub and a mechanical splice
that is installed with a simple field tool. A bell-shaped boot is
attached to the connector body, minimizing the chance of
losing or forgetting to install the boot during the connection.
The no polish connector is tested for Premises and FTTP
applications for indoor and outdoor locations and is available
in SM, 50 μm LOMMF (laser optimized multimode fiber) for
10 Gb applications. The No Polish Connector meets EIA/TIA
568C and IEC requirements and is RoHS compliant.
Superior reliability and ruggedness make 3M Glass/Glass/
Polymer (GGP) fiber optic cable assemblies ideal for
applications requiring tight bends, durability and dependability.
Combine a low bending loss optical fiber with an
additional five micron permanent coating result the most
robust Glass/Glass/Polymer fiber. Its cable assemblies and
patch cords are ideal for applications requiring tight bends,
repeat bending or payoff movement . This new patch cord is
several hundred times more bendable and durable than
standard fiber patch cords.
Volition Network Solution from 3M includes horizontal and
backbone cable with OM3 multimode and 9/125um
singlemode fibre as part of 10G solution. OM3 laser
optimized multimode fiber achieve 10Gb/s serial transmission
at 850nm at distances up to 300meters which is enough to
wire in a building. The horizontal cable provides the physical
link between the fibre connector patch panel in the floor
distributor and the fiber connector in the outlet. Both Unitube
and tight buffer fibre cables are available and the cable jacket
can be LSOH, PVC OFNR (Riser rated) or PE for outdoor.
