ADC Introduces Solutions for Fiber Cable Management
ADC (NASDAQ:ADCT) (www.adc.com), today announced that it has expanded its industry-leading FiberGuideÃ® and RiserGuideÃ® product family with the release of its higher-capacity 24-inch FiberGuide Fiber Management System. This product will be featured at NXTcomm, June 19-21, Chicago, in ADC's booth #5107.
ADC's comprehensive FiberGuide is now available in a 24-inch by four-inch system, doubling the network capacity and flexibility of traditional 12-inch systems. FiberGuide is a fiber management system used to protect and route fiber optic patch cords, multifiber cable assemblies and intra-facility fiber cable to and from fiber splice enclosures, distribution frames and fiber optic terminal devices.The addition of the 24-inch system to ADC's FiberGuide system further expands the broadest product offering in the market today. This comprehensive solution drives down installation time and provides easier fiber cabling deployment. The system also ensures that a two-inch minimum bend radius is maintained throughout for cable protection. The FiberGuide cable raceway system is a complete suite of products designed to ensure off-frame protection and ease of use for advanced fiber management providers who run large quantities of fiber and anticipate future fiber deployments.
"Fiber densities continue to increase in today's data centers, creating demand for increased cable management and protection," said Dave Rapp, senior product manager, Central Office Products for ADC. "ADC's fiber solutions must meet consumer demand for speed of installation, speed of deployment, raceway flexibility and fiber protection."
Complementing FiberGuide, ADC's RiserGuide is an on-demand cable management system designed to enable full network optimization. Bracket-like hardware devices guide fiber cables to appropriate locations or hold bundles in place for optimal organization. RiserGuide is modular and easy to install and remove. Components such as storage spools, radius limiters and cable guides can be installed anywhere on the riser, which can then be mounted within and between racks and cabinets.
"In today's environment, cable management and protection are paramount," said Rapp. "The increased capacity of the FiberGuide and the flexibility offered by the RiserGuide meet these criteria, and help companies manage infrastructure for network optimization and future growth."
