The Xlight Fiber Optic product line addresses rising datacenter demand for higher optical port density and a rapid installation process, a trend which has developed in step with the datacenter increased use of MPO connections. Xlight is designed to bring the benefits of advanced fiber optic solutions to RiT's proven intelligent infrastructure management (IIM) concept to state-of-the-art datacenters, including, among others, its Automated Provisioning Tool, Active I graphical interface and strong reporting engine.
"We are very excited to launch this important new product - another industry-first in line with our commitment to bring leading hardware and software products to the market," commented Eran Ayzik, RiT's President & CEO.
"Since the beginning of the year, we have been rolling out our unique line of managed Xlight fiber optic components, including an intelligent LC-MPO cassette, LC-LC cassette and others, and customer reaction has been encouraging. The Xlight product family enables us to address some of the latest trends in infrastructure installation, and to solve the difficult management challenges of today's high-density, mission-critical datacenters."
In designing recent Xlight products, RiT leveraged the Company's industry-leading experience and multi-disciplinary know-how in the areas of IIM, fiber optic technologies and datacenter networking requirements. To support next-generation data rates, RiT's fiber optic solutions are offered in Multi-Mode OM4 fibers to increase bandwidth and long distance channels, and Single-Mode fibers with low-water pick and bend insensitive capabilities.
Xlight MPO-MPO Tray allows installers to work with MPO cords, FOCIS 5D standard compliant comprising 12 fibers, is fully compatible with 40G and 100G IEEE 802.3 applications, and is comprised of MPO adapters in 1U of rack space (key-up to key-down).
When inserting RiT's unique Xlight MPO-MPO Jumper into the Xlight MPO-MPO Tray port with PatchView capability, both optical and electrical connections are simultaneously made, allowing the RiT PatchView system to scan all the wiring center's fiber optic connections and report the connectivity results to the network administrator on-line and in real-time.
