Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies has announced an end-to-end fiber optic cabling system for data center networks. The system combines Berk-Tek’s Micro Data Center Plenum (MDP) cable with the new Leviton Opt-X® HD Enclosure System. The solution reduces pathway fill, improves airflow, and enables dramatically higher patching density in racks and cabinets.

“Opt-X HD Enclosures provide 33% more patching density over typical enclosures when using LC connectors, and up to 50% when using MTP® connectors,” added Tony Yuen, Leviton Network Solutions senior product manager, fiber. “The system also enables simple and cost-effective migration path to 40 GbE and 100 GbE networks.”

“Berk-Tek MDP cable, when combined with MTP connectors, provides the highest-density backbone connectivity available for data centers and SAN installations,” said Mike Connaughton, RCDD, data center market segment manager at Berk-Tek. “The patented MDP cable has the smallest outside diameter in the industry.”

Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies supports all data center systems with collaborative R&D teams and an extensive network of strategic account managers, specification engineers, data center specialists and manufacturers’ representatives. With technology-driven products, quality-assured solutions, uncompromised customer support, and a limited lifetime warranty for qualified installations, Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies delivers the highest return on infrastructure investment (ROii™) available.
