Schomberg, Canada, December 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Mini-LC duplex and Corning’s Uniboot LC are now available.
Fiber Connections Inc., a manufacturer of custom active and passive optical connectivity solutions, announced today the availability of cable assemblies with the Corning Uniboot LC connector and with mini-LC connectors.
The Corning Uniboot LC features a changeable polarity option and a reduction in size, when compared to standard duplex LC options. The Uniboot LC has a single 2mm boot at the back of the connector. The standard round, 2mm diameter cable, combined with the single boot, provide a significant space savings. The ability to change fiber polarity is very useful in the field – eliminating the possibility of having to replace or re-terminate cables in the field due to fibers not properly oriented.
The mini-LC uses current industry standard LC connectors, but reduces the center spacing when the duplex clip is added. This results in a smaller duplex footprint – ideal for high density applications like Brocade’s high density data center solutions. The reduced overall dimensions of the mini SFP that these connectors plug into, enables up to a 33% increase in switch port density – a huge space savings in costly data centers.
“Adding 2 more small form factor connector options really rounds out our line of passive fiber optic products. As a Corning Gold supplier, we are able to be one of the few companies to offer the Uniboot connector – giving our customers a full range of LC connectivity options,” said Geoff Laycock, VP Sales and Marketing.
Fiber Connections Inc designs and manufactures a wide range of optical connectivity, distribution and media conversion/power over Ethernet hardware. Corporate headquarters is in Schomberg, Ontario Canada with a manufacturing facility in Prince Edward Island, Canada, a US office in Manassas, VA and an EMEA office in the Netherlands.
