Part of its LANscape® Pretium™ Solution, Corning Cable Systems Plug & Play Universal Systems include pre-terminated optical fiber trunk cables, modules and harness assemblies that greatly reduce the amount of space occupied by the cabling infrastructure within a cabinet. The factory-terminated trunk cables provide TIA-942 compliant connectivity to cabinets containing switches and cabinets housing servers and storage devices via cross-connections in the data center’s Main Distribution Area (MDA). Each end of the high fiber count trunk cable is furcated into multiple 12-fiber legs, factory-terminated with MTP® connectors. In lower density applications for servers and data storage equipment, the MTP trunks attach to Plug & Play Universal Systems CCHmodules. In high-density applications with Brocade 48000 and Cisco MDS 9513 SAN Directors, Corning Cable Systems offers customized, space-saving harness assemblies that are factory-terminated with an MTP connector on one end and six LC duplex connectors on the other end. The harness assemblies mate to trunk cables via high-density MTP adapter panels mounted in CPI’s N-Series TeraFrame™ Cabinet using the CPI Fiber Management System. The harnesses require less physical space inside the cabinet than individual fiber optic patch cords making it easier to trace and manage connections.

The CPI Fiber Management System is comprised of five main support components: the Fiber Trunk Cable Manager, Vertical Furcation Bracket, Horizontal Furcation Bracket, Universal Accessory Rail and Fiber Module Bracket, as well as two accessories for the Universal Accessory Rail: the Fiber Module Adapter and the Swivel Cable Spool. The system supports and provides for attachment and strain-relief of the Plug & Play Universal Systems trunk cables, as well as mounting of Plug & Play Universal Systems Modules and/or high-density MTP adapter panels in the 0 RMU space between the cabinet frame and side panel.  The N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet is designed to support high-density cabling and thermal management for modular switches, such as the Cisco 9500 series SAN Director and Brocade 48000 SAN Director.

CPI Fiber Management Components 

Item 1  Universal Accessory Rail  The Universal Accessory Rail attaches to the vertical frame upright of the N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet and supports Corning Cable Systems high-density MTP adapter panels, Fiber Module Adapters and Swivel Cable Spools in the Zero RMU space between the cabinet frame and the cabinet side panel.

Item 2  Vertical Furcation Bracket  The Vertical Furcation Bracket attaches to the side of the N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet and supports Corning Cable Systems Plug & Play Universal Systems trunk cables.


Item 3  Fiber Trunk Cable Manager   The Fiber Trunk Cable Manager attaches to the side of the N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet and supports Corning Cable Systems Plug & Play Universal Systems trunk cables. The Fiber Trunk Cable Manager cannot be installed with the Horizontal Furcation Bracket.


Item 4  Horizontal Furcation Bracket   The Horizontal Furcation Bracket attaches to the Universal Accessory Rail in the N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet.  The Horizontal Furcation Bracket can be used to secure trunk cables in the vertical orientation as the cables enter the cabinet or as a horizontal (front-to-rear) support for the furcation legs of the trunk cable.  The Horizontal Furcation Bracket cannot be installed if a Fibert Trunk Cable Manager is present.

Item 5  Fiber Module Adapter  The Fiber Module Adapter mounts to the Universal Accessory Rail in a N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet and supports a single Corning Cable Systems Plug & Play Universal Systems CCH Module in the Zero RMU space between the cabinet frame and the cabinet side panel.

Item 6  Swivel Cable Spool  The Swivel Cable Spool attaches to the Universal Accessory Rail in a N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinet and helps manage optical fiber harness assemblies as the assemblies transition from connector matings on the Universal Accessory Rail to connections in rack-mount equipment.  The spools are recommended next to modular SAN switches, like the Cisco 9500 series and Brocade 48000 Directors, to manage cable slack where large numbers of harness assemblies are installed in a small number of RMU spaces.

Fiber Module Bracket (not shown)   The Fiber Module Bracket attaches to the side of the F-Series TeraFrame Cabinet and supports Corning Cable Systems Plug & Play Universal Systems CCH Modules and fiber optic patch cords in the 0 RMU space between the cabinet frame and the cabinet side panel.
