Dortmund/Germany, March 19th 2018. The cabling systems tML, tSML, tBL and tDF by tde – trans data elektronik are now available with the new OM5 fibre. As a result, these highly flexible plug-and-play platforms offer even more options when migrating to higher transmission rates. For better differentiation, the network specialist designed its LC and MPO connectors as well as the corresponding adapters as LC quad and LC duplex versions in the officially standardized OM5 cable colour „Lime green“. As the only supplier on the market to date tde has equipped the adapters with self-closing dust and laser shutters as standard.

All tde cabling systems with the new OM5 fibre are now available. The network expert has integrated the cables with the officially standardized colour „lime green“ into his proven systems. This includes the successful modular and semi-modular plug-and-play platforms tML and tSML, the tBL product line for classic cabling and the modular and centralized fibre optic distribution frame tDF. As with previous OM fibre classes, tde has also designed the LC and MPO connectors and the corresponding adapters in the OM5 cable colour „Lime green“.

„For network engineers, it is particularly important to be able to distinguish the OM classes of multimode fibres by the colour of the cable jacket and the connectors. This provides greater clarity during installation and patching. This has proven itself since the introduction of OM3,“ says Andre Engel, Managing Director of tde.

Highly innovative: adapters with integrated shutter

tde offers the adapters as LC Quad and LC Duplex versions. They integrate self-closing dust and laser shutters made of metal as standard and ensure the transmission quality of fibre optic cabling maintaining a high packing density. „We are very pleased to be the only manufacturer on the market to offer adapters with integrated shutters. This underlines once again our high level of innovation,“ explains Andre Engel. tde now also provides all common cable types, patch and trunk cables with the OM5 fibre.

Since the OM5 fibre is optimized for Short Wave Division Multiplexing (SWDM) technology, customers receive even more options for migrating to higher transmission rates. Suitable SWDM transceivers for transmission rates of 40 and 100 GBit are already available on the market. „The use of the OM5 fibre does not conflict with the MPO connection technology,“ explains Andre Engel and continues: „The MPO connector is still the first choice for rear cabling and fully exploits its advantages in terms of fast installation. As there will be solutions in the foreseeable future to combine SWDM technology with parallel optics, companies should already rely on the OM5 fibre today. By this they remain future-proof and keep all future possibilities. In the rear area of our tML24 cabling system, SWDM technology already achieves 1.2 Terabit via a 24-fibre MPO connector.“

The tML – tde Modular Link-System

tML is a patented, modular cabling system consisting of the three key components module, trunk cable and rack mount enclosure. The system components are 100 percent manufactured, pre-assembled and tested in Germany. They enable plug-and-play installation on site – especially in data centres, but also in industrial environments – within the shortest possible time. The system is characterized by highest packing density and highest flexibility during migration to higher transmission rates. Fibre optic and TP modules can be combined in one rack mount enclosure. 96x fibre optics LC Duplex or 96x MPO connectors can be used modularly on a 19-inch height unit. Thanks to its patented polarity and dark fibre modules, the tML system offers the simplest migration options to 100G and more.

tde presents new tML-Xtended cable system for an easy and fast migration to 40/100 GbE

tde presents new tML-Xtended cable system for an easy and fast migration to 40/100 GbE

tde – trans data elektronik expands tML – tde modular link system with new fibre optic module for high transmission rates

Dortmund, Germany, 1 October 2014. tde – trans data elektronik, pioneer in the field of multi-mode fibre optic technology, now offers the successful tML – tde modular link cable system in the expanded version tML-Xtended. The patented system is equipped with a new fibre optic module which ensures the extremely easy and fast migration to 40 and 100 GbE. The special feature: before and after the migration the network technician can work with identical components and patch cables on both sides. This facilitates the stockage and also the handling of the network. Thoughts about polarity are no longer necessary.

Migration made easy

„With our new tML-X module we meet the demands of our customers to facilitate migration to higher transmission rates“, Andre Engel, CEO of tde, says. So far, users had to work with the familiar normed module polarity methods A, B and C with different modules or patch cables. In practice, this resulted in an extremely complicated handling prone to errors. „This is where the tML-X module comes in with its new innovative polarity. The result is an equal polarity of the modules and patch cables on both sides – even after the migration to 40 or 100 GbE. The customer no longer has to think about polarity“, Engel adds.

Fibre optic module for high transmission rates

The tML-X module is based on the tML-HD module. It has 12x LC duplex connectors at the front and 2x MPO/MTP connectors with 12 fibres each at the back. The 12x LC duplex connectors are arranged in two mirrored rows with 6x LC duplex connectors each. The tML fibre optic cables MPO/MTP are used with type B polarity. The polarity in the module corresponds to the method B according to EIA/TIA 568.C. tde has now integrated both different polarities in one module for an easier handling. The type B polarity of the trunk cables later ensures the easy migration to 40/100GbE.

„We have achieved the desired crossing of the fibres by installing the module turned by 180 degrees on one side and by swapping both MPO connectors at the back. Since one fibre each has to run from the sender to the receiver of the transceivers, a crossing of the fibres is always achieved in the fibre optic link“, Andre Engel explains. „The tML-Xtended once again adds a further unique characteristic to our successful tML cable system. There is no other comparable product on the market. The packing density of 96x LC duplex ports on one height unit is unrivalled“, Engel continues.

The tML – tde modular link system

tML is a patented modular cabling system consisting of the three main components module, trunk cable and module rack. The system components are a 100% made, pre-assembled and tested in Germany. They ensure a plug-and-play installation on site – especially in data centres but also in industrial environments – within a very short time. The core of the system is the MPO/MTP and telco connector at the back, which can connect at least six ports with 10 GbE or GbE performance all at once. Fibre optic and TP modules are available which can be used together in one module rack with a very high port density.

tde – trans data elektronik GmbH is an internationally successful company, which has specialised in the development and manufacture of scalable cabling systems for highest packing density for more than 20 years. Amongst others, the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN relies on the competence and know-how of tdeꞌs technology-leadership in the multi-fiber-technology.
