AFL has used this week’s BICSI Winter Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, FL, to launch the ASCEND family of fiber housings, cassettes, and assemblies for high-density data center applications. The ASCEND line offers flexibility, functionality, and ease-of-use, AFL says. The ASCEND fiber housings come in 1RU, 2RU, and 4RU sizes to serve requirements for up to 144, 288, and 576 fibers, respectively. The housings’ front and back doors are hinged on the bottom, and back of the housing cover is removable for better access to fiber-optic connector interfaces. Routing rings at the front of the trays makes routing patch cords, easy, secure, and organized, AFL asserts. The cassettes that populate these housings are designed to offer a wide range of options, according to AFL. These include BASE-8 to BASE-24 for both single-mode fiber and multi-mode fiber applications. These include applications ranging from patch-th...
