SOMERSET, N.J.--()--Go!Foton Corporation proudly announces the introduction of its new Ultra High Density PEACOC™ Fiber Management Frame for data center and telecom applications. The Go!Foton PEACOC (Patch panel with Enhanced Access for Compact Optical Connectors) Frame boasts easy, tool-less access to 144 standard simplex LC terminations per 1RU for 19” racks and 162 standard simplex LC terminations per 1RU for 21” racks, an industry first. Higher density fiber distribution frames allow telecom and data center providers to more efficiently and more cost effectively manage the explosive growth of fiber connections. The PEACOC frame is scalable in increments of 1RU for “pay as you grow” convenience and cost efficiency. A single, fully loaded frame supports over 6000 fiber terminations using standard LC connectors. The port density can be increased even further with the use of smaller form factor connectors, or by using multi-fiber push-on (MPO) connectors. This novel design incorporates Go!Foton’s patent pending PEACOC technology, an innovative, “large finger friendly” fiber jumper management solution that requires no special tools. The Go!Foton PEACOC technology addresses the biggest drawback associated with the use of high density fiber distribution frames today, namely, the difficulty in handling the compact optical connectors to perform fiber jumper management. With PEACOC technology, each individual optical connection can be easily isolated from adjacent optical connections providing a generous region of unobstructed handling space for safe, error free fiber management.
“The Go!Foton Ultra High Density PEACOC Fiber Management Frame, which offers industry leading density, scalability, and accessibility is the right solution at the right time”
As fiber optic distribution frames become increasingly more densely populated with compact optical connectors, telecom and data center personnel experience great difficulty to isolate and manage the fiber interconnections. With Go!Foton’s PEACOC™ technology, 144 terminations using LC connectors (per 19” 1RU shelf) are arranged in six sub-groups of 24 terminations each. Each 24 count subgroup is accessible via a slide out tray. Within each tray, the 24 adapters can be conveniently “fanned out” for easy isolation and management by craft personnel, regardless of the size of their fingers. All fiber terminations are easily accessible from the front side of the frame to mitigate the potential for mishandling. Each 1RU shelf is rigidly attached to the frame providing durability under routine fiber management activity.
While the high frame density showcased at OFC 2013 in Anaheim is achieved with LC type connectors, an SC connector option is also available. Other available options include a full or partial pre-termination with standard or angled connectors assembled on state of the art 1.2mm fiber optic jumper cordage. The 1.2mm fiber optic jumpers are optionally available with ITU-T G.657 bend optimized fiber.
The PEACOC frame design is based upon the rigorous industry standards set forth in Telcordia GR-449, GR-63, and Verizon TPR.9464. Engineered jumper slack management hardware protects and retains the jumper slack during handling and tracing and assures that the minimum fiber bend radius is properly maintained during all phases of installation and routine management.
The explosive growth in data center construction driven by social media, internet commerce, digitization programs in healthcare/finance/consumer profiling, and the pervasive demand for ubiquitous upstream/downstream video over smartphones creates a fertile market for ultra-high density optical distribution frames in telecom and datacom equipment centers. With data storage growth rates in enterprise data banks growing at a rate of 50% per year, datacom managers will increasingly seek out space efficient equipment solutions in the never ending challenge to achieve the greatest value per cubic foot of equipment room space. “The Go!Foton Ultra High Density PEACOC Fiber Management Frame, which offers industry leading density, scalability, and accessibility is the right solution at the right time,” states Simin Cai, Go!Foton President and CEO. Simin continues, “From SELFOC micro lens technology introduced more than 40 years ago to PEACOC fiber management technology today, Go!Foton is a proven technology innovator in the optics industry to bring light to life!”
