Excel 1U HD MTP® empty patch panel

February 2013, Excel Networking Solutions, the copper and optical cabling infrastructure provider has completely revamped its MTP® offering to provide a wider choice of products with enhanced features and benefits.

The Excel MTP® Fibre Optic Cabling System provides a scalable, high density solution particularly suited for data centres or where space is at a premium and high availability is required. The system is suitable for OM3, OM4 and OS2 requirements.

Changes to the range include a new style 1U high density MTP® empty patch panel which offers an expandable fibre optic deployment with the ability to accept up to 5 MTP® cassettes. The front panel drops down to offer easy access and when closed provides protection to the installed patch cords and also a large labelling field. Once mounted, the panel can be pulled forward by releasing two side catches, to facilitate easy access to the LC connectors in the cassettes.

An Angled version of the patch panel has also been added which takes up to 4 cassettes presenting a maximum of 96 fibre cores in LC Duplex connectors. The advantage of the angle mounting of the cassettes is that it reduces the bend on the connected fibre cords and takes them naturally to either side of the cabinet.

Finally the new Excel MTP® to LC Fan Out Cables offer a flexible way to connect fibre optic equipment to MTP® Trunk Cables. Each fan out cable is constructed with mini break out cables so that the fibre is a single piece in the assembly. Customers can choose between a choice of 12, 24, 72 and 144 core cable assemblies with the length custom made to suit their exact requirements.

Commenting on the changes to the MTP® range, Simon Robinson, Excel Product Manager said ‘We’ve spent a considerable amount of time talking to our customers to refine and improve on our MTP® offering and we feel now that we have a robust solution that will cater for every customer requirement.’

Simon continued ‘The quality of the Excel MTP® solution is key and we have chosen to use the MTP® Elite connectors from market leader US Conec as they offer superior performance with low loss properties.’

The complete range of Excel MTP® products includes the High Density MTP® Fibre Optic 5 Cassette Empty Patch Panel, High Density MTP® Angled Fibre Optic 4 Cassette Empty Patch Panel, Fibre Optic MTP® Cassettes, MTP® Fibre Optic Trunk Cables and MTP® to LC Fan Out Cables.
