MDC (VSFF) connector supports all 3 IEEE 802.3db Use Cases

Current duplex connectors do not support 4 duplex connectors in a single QSFP-DD package and 2 duplex connectors in a single SFP-DD package. A smaller format duplex connector is needed to support QSFP-DD/OSFP 4:1 and SFP-DD 2:1 breakout applications.

MDC (Very Small Form Factor) connectors support these new breakout applications and allow four connectors to be fitted within the QSFP-DD module, which LC duplex connector cannot accomplish.

The MDC connector is a Very Small Form Factor (VSFF) duplex optical connector designed for termination of single-mode and multimode fiber cables up to 2.0mm in diameter. It is a 2-fiber connector using proven 1.25mm LC ferrules, providing 3x density over LC. Adapters use the same port cutouts and sizes as LC, allowing current designs to transfer from LC to MDC. MDC solutions include uniboot style jumpers, harnesses, trunks, panels, and many pre-terminated MTP® options.

MDC connectors are installed and removed using a push-pull strain relief boot. The boot assists in very dense applications providing easy extraction from adapters and ports. Polarity is easily changed without the need of a tool or exposing fibers, by simply pulling back the strain relief and rotating around the connector body. Jumpers are exclusively micro-size cables, and are available with alternate connectors on the other end, such as LC, for connecting to existing infrastructure.

Using the existing families of Classic, PRM, and LGX compatible panels or modules allows end users to upgrade in fiber density without the added cost of buying a new hardware enclosure or system. Simply swap out the existing panel or module to an MDC and plug in the additional fibers required.

Panels use an MDC adapter to accept a jumper or pre-terminated trunk on each side of the panel, up to 48 fiber per Classic panel.

Modules use a denser MDC adapter to achieve higher fiber counts over panels. A standard Classic MDC module provides 72 fibers, using 12 MDC adapter ports at 6 fibers each, with 6 MTP® ports on the back. Standard modules use pinned (male) MTP connectors and should be mated with non-pinned (female) trunk cables.

OFNR vs. OFNP

Cable jackets are comprised of different materials based on different applications. Plastics used in the structure of plenum cable in the United States are regulated under the National Fire Protection Association standard NFPA 90A: Standard for the Installation of Air Conditioning and Ventilating Systems. All materials planned for use on wire and cables to be placed in plenum spaces are intended to meet rigorous fire safety test standards by NFPA 262 and outlined in NFPA 90A.

OFNR (Optical Fiber Non-conductive Riser)

Used in riser applications or spaces inside a building in pathways that pass between floors, such as a vertical zone or space. They are engineered to prevent a fire from spreading from floor to floor within buildings. OFNR cable is resistant to oxidation and degradation. It gives off heavy black smoke, hydrochloric acid, and other toxic gases when it burns. It is fine to use as a patch cord or for single in-wall runs. If you want to use it in a building, the building must feature a contained ventilation system and have good fire exits.

OFNP (Optical Fiber Non-conductive Plenum)

Used in plenum applications or inside buildings in plenum areas, the areas between a ceiling and the floor above it, where space is reserved for the circulation of air. They have the highest rated fire retardant which emits little smoke during combustion. The non-conductive element within OFNP means they contain no electrically conductive components. OFNP cable has fire resistance and gives low smoke when it burns. It can be used as a substitute for PVC (OFNR) cable since its fire resistance is the highest. It’s designed for the movement of environmental air and is commonly used for vertical runs between floors.

DMSI utilizes UL-listed cables in all our products. UL-listed cables are fully traceable and guarantee high quality and safe product. To combat counterfeit offshore cables, we recommend asking your suppliers for a certificate of compliance, or proof of where your product is coming from.

Why 5G Wireless Need Lots of Fiber?

To be fully functional, 5G will depend on fiber.

The most recent development in wireless network infrastructure is a fifth generation, AKA, 5G. This will cover up to 100 times more connected devices, including both mobile and fixed network infrastructure.

Superficially, people would think that 5G technology will eliminate the need for fiber cables. Quite the reverse, the future 5G’s success significantly depends on fiber.

Fiber is Substantial to Increase the Speed

5G promised to increase to speed up to 10 Gbps, which is ten to a hundred times higher than 4G. Among all mediums, fiber is the best future-proof choice that is capable of transporting data at a long distance and high bandwidth.

Better Performance Requires Fiber

The goal of the 5G network to accomplish diversity, availability, and coverage can be achieved by wider deployment of smaller cell sites/distributed antenna systems (DAS) interconnected by fiber instead of a few larger ones in favor of utilizing the capabilities in an area. To meet this goal, there will need to be more fiber used worldwide because copper or air options will not be able to sustain this.

Affordability

Fiber is the best all around option because of its cost-effectiveness and durability.

Fiber is Here to Stay

5G wireless and fiber will go hand in hand. Its placement will significantly depend on the availability of fiber infrastructure. In the future generation of wireless network, fiber will be valuable with an improvement of capacity and lower latency.

Why You Need Low-Loss Fiber Connectivity

In any data center, the key for each manager is to maintain efficiency and set your network up for optimal connectivity. However, things do not always go to plan every single day, and you have to factor that into your business. There are plenty of factors that contribute to link loss, such as the length and type of cable, or the number of connectors. Low-loss MPO or MTP connectors will give you greater adaptability and flexibility. The biggest thing to remember with any type of fiber optics product is that your daily tasks will be made simple. Processes that used to take up time will now be done in a much more efficient manner. With low-loss connectivity, your functionality will increase, such as expanding the distance of your network due to the number of connections possible.


With low-loss connectivity, your functionality will increase, such as expanding the distance of your network due to the number of connections possible.

How Will It Help?

As with anything in this sector, or any sector really, the key is to minimize risk. By using low-loss fiber connectivity, you’re effectively shrinking the risk that would’ve been there. In today’s data centers, optical insertion budgets are shrinking. It’s also important to recognize that much of the architecture for layouts has become flattened. Considering LANs now have higher port densities, flatter networks have become more prevalent. So, this isn’t necessarily something you have to do, but it would bring you incredible value.

What Are The Benefits?

The benefit of having low-loss fiber connectivity is that it gives you a greater amount of connection points. Specifically, more connection points in 10, 40, and 100 gigabit Ethernet channels. Another main benefit of using this type of technology is how much easier it makes for simple processes. With the low loss, fiber makes it much easier (and faster) to change your server connections between ports.

Why Fiber Optics Will Lead The Future Of Communication


Fiber optics will be the center of communication in years to come.

In the world of technology, updates are constantly occurring. Nothing ever stays at the forefront for too long, as trends are always changing. One piece of tech that is revolutionizing the market would be fiber optics. Many experts believe fiber optic technology is the future of digital communication. They aren’t wrong with that assessment, as fiber optics allow processes to occur faster than any other piece of equipment. It legitimately moves things at the speed of light, due to its unique glass composition (compared to a copper cable).

A Brief History

The process of fiber optics began in the 1800s, with contributions from multiple scientists. While the French Chappe brothers invented the first optical telegraph, the work of John Tyndall, Alexander Graham Bell, and William Wheeler took the industry to new heights. Eventually, based on their work, researchers would soon discover fiber optic wires.

How Do Fiber Optic Cables Work?

Essentially, the fiber optic connection is powered through elongated glass fibers. The cables transmit data signals at a fast speed, connecting to the internet. Due to its durability, lightweight and small size, the fiber optic cable effectively provides a high-speed connection while increasing bandwidth. It gives you a reliable setup at a worthy cost.

Why Will They Lead The Future?

Durability

In comparison to metal wiring or copper wiring, fiber optics are much more reliable. The metal wires create heat when transmitting information, and this heat eventually damages them, causing a need for replacement. Fiber uses light, which decreases the damage and constant need for replacement.

Energy Consumption

Fiber optic cables use less energy compared to copper wires. This ability to use a smaller amount translates into a more efficient product, and a more cost-effective approach.

Already In Use

Many companies are starting to make the transition to a fiber optics system, for security and speed. Fiber optics can be found in industries where you would never even expect them. Eventually, you’ll start to see more and more businesses make the jump.

The Advantage Of Media Converters

Media converters are a beneficial tool to have when assessing today’s networks. In the past (and somewhat still in the present), copper cabling was a dominant force in the technology field. At its core, a media converter is used to connect two devices that are not entirely relatable. The reason this type of product is important is due to the unique function it gives us. With a media converter, you have the ability to fiber systems with copper-based setups. This increases the overall functionality and usability of other products.

With a media converter, you can connect fiber systems with copper-based setups. This increases the overall functionality and usability of other products.

The Process Of Speed

With any product, the hope is that it will help you accomplish your tasks in the fastest manner possible. A fiber-based media converter can help you achieve that type of goal due to its versatility. By reducing any potential interference and increasing the distance, it can theoretically support an above-average network speed. Not only do they take in a greater amount of speed, but media converters can give you more flexibility.

Expansion

When you employ this device, one of the things you’ll notice is how it expands the reach of the network. Because a media converter is essentially two transceivers passing data back and forth to each other, it gives you stronger access and a smaller chance of losing any connection. The reason for this is due to how local area networks are brought together. When the reach of local area networks expands, it gives way to multiple LANs forming what is a conglomerate of a network.

Cost Effective

The beauty of media converters is that they can also save you money. One of the primary perks of fiber technology is that it can withstand high bandwidth features, like a streaming application. A media converter saves you money in terms of making the fiber-to-desktop process easy.
