Spartanburg, SC (PRWEB) August 04, 2014
AFL is launching its newest addition to the Premise MicroCore product line, Sub-unitized Premise MicroCore 3.0. Ideal for data centers, central offices and other high performance applications, MicroCore 3.0 provides greater fiber density in a compact and easy to manage 3.0 mm frame. By utilizing a 24-fiber loose tube design, MicroCore 3.0 can house up to 288 fibers while maintaining a flexible form, thereby optimizing space in a new or existing routing infrastructure.
“The release of this new product set affirms AFL’s position in the marketplace as a leader in providing innovative technologies that provide real value to both our direct customers and to consumers in general by continuing to take measures that reduce the overall cost of network connectivity and access.”
MicroCore 3.0 provides end users with a 400 percent increase in pathway capacity as compared to a 900 µm tight-buffered solution, and the loose tube design allows for greater fiber management than stacked ribbon cables. Through its use, the cable’s smaller diameter optimizes data center airflow and provides greater cooling efficiency.
As with all MicroCore products, each loose tube sub-unit is independently qualified as a standalone interconnectivity cable suitable for direct termination with a round boot MTP or used in complex routings of top-of-rack or side-rack installations.
