HiLOC:
Harness in Lieu Of Cassette
The HiLOC harness is
used as the interface
from the trunk cable
to the switch or other
device, taking the place
of the cassette.
No other media can provide more
bandwidth in the data center for your
high performance networks than
optical fiber. Even so, the data center is
being squeezed to produce more with
less. System loss budgets are growing
increasingly tighter and designing
a fiber optic system has become a
balancing act, with fiber loss having
the greatest impact on the overall
system performance. In order to help
conserve this fiber loss, Legrand has
created an alternative to the traditional
MTP®-to-LC cassette: the Harness
in Lieu Of Cassette, or the HiLOCTM
system. The Ortronics® HiLOC system
harness is used as the interface from
the trunk cable to the switch or other
device, taking the place of the cassette.
THE HiLOC SYSTEM
Traditionally, a trunk cable is plugged
into an MTP®-to-LC cassette, and then
LC-to-LC patch cords are connected
from the cassette to the device.
Installing an MTP-to-LC HiLOCTM
harness, instead of a cassette, allows
a connector pair to be eliminated from
the link. Not only does this conserve
.75dB of ‘loss’, but eliminating
this connector pair allows for an
additional connection point to be used
elsewhere in the system. This is the
quintessential production of ‘more
with less’.
Using the HiLOC solution to eliminate
a cassette and the accompanying fiber
cords means that space is saved:
A single 12-fiber 3mm microdistribution cable takes much less
space (1/6th the space) than six
separate patch cords. This creates a
neater and cleaner installation, while
saving space and maximizing air flow
in the pathway.
HiLOC is a completely integrated
system. It includes a configurable
harness with a physical support
mounting element, a mounting panel
and a 2U enclosure designed to
maximize the harness features.
A HiLOC harness directly interconnects
MPO cassettes, panels or backbone
assemblies with active equipment.
This saves rack space, in addition to
allowing better fiber management.

A twelve fiber cassette is attached at each end with LC
patch cords to support six channels. An optional 24-fiber
cassette can also be used.
For applications with high-density core switches where
patching is not needed, one of the cassettes and its
associated LC patch cords are replaced with a 12-fiber
harness and an MPO adapter panel.

HiLOC HARNESS
The HiLOC
pre-terminated
harness is
customizable and
nearly infinitely
configurable. It can
be created to exactly
suit your installation. Customizable
features include:
TM
The cable length from the
MTP® connector to the HiLOC
furcation shell
■■
The length of the breakout tube
from the HiLOC shell to the
LC connector
■■
The breakout legs can either be
staggered or not to match the pitch
of the switch port locations
■■
The MTP connector can be fitted
with or without pins (male
or female)
■■
The harness jacket can either
be plenum-rated (OFNP) or
a low smoke, zero halogen
(LSZH) material
■■
The harness is designed for strength
and durability. The cable assembly
is constructed with 3mm round,
high-density distribution cable on
the MTP side and 3 mm aramid fiber
strengthened breakout tubes on the
LC side.
HiLOC SHELL
One of the
remarkable
features about the
HiLOC system is the
breakout element –
the HiLOC furcation
shell. It organizes
and protects the cable as it transitions
from the (typically) 12-fiber MTP
cable to the duplex breakout legs.
The HiLOC shell provides a physical
support connector for the harness
cables, relieving strain on the cables.
The furcation shell is constructed
with a foot so it can be toollessly
mounted to a variety of Legrand
cable management elements. It has
been designed to integrate into other
connectivity equipment by locking into
the HiLOC Multi-Use Panel.

HiLOC MULTI-USE PANEL
harness mounting solution.
An additional
element of the
HiLOCTM system
is the MultiUse Panel. The
panel has female
channels that are
designed to accept up to 4 HiLOC
shells, providing strain relief for each
harness. The Multi-Use Panel is
designed to be an independent cable
management element and can be
locked into place onto a Mighty Mo®
10 cable management cage or in any
Cablofil® cable tray product. It can
also be attached through 4 pre-drilled
holes. This array of flexibility creates
the opportunity for a zero rack unit

the front of the enclosure to manage
the MPO-to-harness cable slack, as
well space provided in the rear of the
enclosure to secure the backbone
cables and routing cable slack.
