Fibre Connectivity: SC, LC & MTP
• LC (Lucent Connector)
– Where used: Datacom
– Most popular in data centres and telecom rooms
• Small footprint allows high port count switches, SAN directors, etc.
• Small form-factor pluggable (SFP, SFP+) optical modules use LC
• SC (Subscriber Connector)
– Where used: Datacom and telecom
– Losing popularity
• Size prevents high-density applications
• MTP (Multiple-Fibre Push-On/Pull-off)

Where used: Data centres
Terminate 12 or 24 fibres — High density
Is being used for 40G/100G Ethernet
Panduit’s has superior end face
• Important: Keeps the end of the fibres aligned – Less insertion loss

Vertical Exhaust System For Maximum Energy Efficiency
The Vertical Exhaust System:
• Removes heated air without additional
moving parts through a passive system
• Channels heat from cabinet directly to the
above ceiling return plenum increasing
cooling efficiency
• Enables increased server densities by
preventing hot and cold air mixing and
eliminating hot spots
• Dampens noise in data centre
• Can be applied as modular system at initial
installation or added when required as heat
densities increase
