CABLExpress® Lowers Maximum Insertion Loss of Fiber Optic Assembly to Industry Best 0.25dB

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Maintaining its position as a leading manufacturer of high-performance cabling products, CABLExpress® lowered the maximum insertion loss of its Skinny-Trunk® fiber optic cables to an industry best 0.25dB per mated pair. Fitted with MTP® connectors, the Skinny-Trunk fiber optic assembly will enable data centers to stay within loss budgets while running networks at 10G, 40G and eventually 100G Ethernet.

"2012 will be the year where 10G attached servers become the norm which in turn will drive demand for 40G and eventually 100G within the enterprise data center," said Mark Fabbi, VP, Distinguished Analyst, Gartner, Inc. "Enterprises are encouraged to rethink the physical data center architecture and prepare for increased fiber deployment to support 40/100G backbone requirements."

This is the second time in as many years CABLExpress lowered the insertion loss of its Skinny-Trunk fiber optic assembly. It previously held an already industry best of 0.35dB loss. However, improvements to the cable manufacturing process and extensive production testing produced a maximum rate of 0.25dB.

"The Skinny-Trunk fiber optic cabling system consistently outperforms the competition in terms of dB loss," says Peter E. Belyea, President. "As data rates increase and loss budgets decrease, increasing performance is critical. Our product development team continues to focus on improving existing dB loss rates in an effort to provide customers with the best data center cabling solution on the market."

The Skinny-Trunk fiber optic assembly comes standard with a lifetime warranty.
