Hellermanntyton Expands Fiber Optic Solution with High Density 144 Strand MTP Cassette

576 Fibers in ONE rack unit of space!

Milwaukee, WI – HellermannTyton (www.hellermann.tyton.com), a global manufacturer and supplier of network cabling solutions and cable management accessories, introduces an addition to the MTP™ VHD high-density patching cassette that supports the management of densities up to 576 fibers in a single rack unit (1RU). The smaller footprint offered by this modular solution permits rack consolidation, reducing cable congestion in pathways and spaces within densely populated network areas. This robust cassette is the most recent addition to the HellermannTyton high-performance RapidNet® factory-tested and pre-terminated network connectivity product line.

The MTP™ Very High Density (VHD) Fiber Cassette accepts smaller diameter cables (7.0mm/72 fiber; 9.1mm/144 fiber) that provide more flexibility and better bend radius. This cassette allows for easier connection access as it requires two less mated pair connections with direct terminations, accommodating any future need to make adds, moves and changes. Additionally, this connectivity option comes standard with the low loss Elite® MTP™ Connector that features a floating ferrule design that guarantees fiber contact integrity.

The MTP™ Very High Density (VHD) Product Line offers the added benefit of meeting 10GbE support required today by data centers as well as providing the ease of migration for the potential of higher levels up to 100GbE.

This new offering is available in a variety of fiber types: OM3, OM4 and OS1.
