The IANOS® 4U chassis is designed for high density applications where connections to high density blade servers and switches are required in the same or adjacent racks. Generally mounted above or below switches, the IANOS® 4U chassis supports up to 576 fibers (288 ports) per 4U of rack space. The IANOS® 1U chassis is designed for medium to high density applications where connections to servers and switches are required in the same or adjacent racks. Generally mounted at the top of equipment cabinets, the IANOS® 1U chassis supports up to 144 fibers (72 ports) per 1U of rack space.
The IANOS® patching module is a straight through MTP or LC patching field which allows trunk cables to be connected directly to patch cords or harnesses. In Base-2 singlemode applications the IANOS® patching module provides a fast „plug & play“ alternative to fusion splicing, and for MTP multimode applications the patching module is designed to facilitate „end-to-end“ parallel optics using Base-8, Base-12 or Base-24 connectivity.
IANOS® transition modules convert MTP backbone cables to LC connectivity at the front of the module so that LC patch cords can be connected to nearby active equipment. Generally used for lower data rates such as 1G, 10G or 16G. IANOS® transition modules offer users the possibility to upgrade their LC based links in the future simply by replacing the transition module with an MTP based „conversion module“, „patching module“ or „conversion harness“. Transition modules are available in „single“ or „double“ versions and are suitable for Base-8, Base-12 or Base-24 MTP backbones.
IANOS® conversion modules provide an easy upgrade path for users who want to convert their pre-installed MTP backbone cables to match new transceiver requirements. This process allows users to get full fiber utilization from their existing backbones without any existing fibers. For example, two Base-12 backbone trunks can be can converted to three Base-8 MTP connectors (40G SR4) or alternatively they can be converted to a single Base-24 MTP connector (100G SR10).
The IANOS® pre-terminated module is a „single“ module which is pre-connectorised directly with a length of cable. The pre-terminated system can be supplied with a module at both ends or alternatively at one end only for fusion splicing to pigtails. Pre-terminated modules reduce the installation time considerable compared to spliced pigtails and they also help data center operators to achieve near-perfect length management of cables between racks.
HUBER+SUHNER designs and manufactures every component within its high performance optipack cable systems perfectly tailored to for IANOS®. Optipack cable systems allow us to increase the performance by as much as 50% so that our customers can achieve the optical budget requirements without losing flexibility for evolving data centers.
