Trunks, Connectors, Harnesses
CABLExpress trunking assemblies are made to be up to 60 percent smaller in cross-sectional area and 1/5 the weight of distribution/MIC trunking. They're factory termination and tested to eliminate the need for field terminations, saving the user time.

CABLExpress high density single mode MTP/MTP, 10-gigabit aqua LC/MTP and MTP/MTP connections can terminate up to 12 optical fibers in a single ferrule connector. Utilizing high density options allows users to reduce the amount of floor space, rack space, and other costs associated with wiring your data center without sacrificing quality. This allows for the same high performance and low loss as with your standard jumpers or trunks. CABLExpress branded trunking is available from 4 to 144 fiber count.

CABLExpress designs single mode, multimode, and 10-gigabit aqua LC/MTP direct attach harnesses for data center applications. Fiber optic harnesses convert MTP terminations to simplex or duplex fiber connectors such as LC or SC. This allows for maximum fiber density within a limited space. CABLExpress terminated harnesses are factory tested and can reduce installation time by up to 75 percent.
