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“, André 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”, André 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.
