Our Philosophy
As a leader in the enterprise cable industry since our inception
over three decades ago, we can help you implement the
solution that will work best for your cabling infrastructure, not
just today but into the future as well. We began by supplying
used replacement parts for mainframes, and have continued
to expand our expertise into today’s data center systems.
With our trademark Technology @ Your Pace® philosophy, we
handle legacy equipment, as well as leading-edge solutions
to 10-gigabit and beyond. Plus, we always keep in mind
methods of future proofing and implementing scalability in
any cabling solutions we provide. Our Skinny-Trunk™ fiber
trunking, modules and enclosures offer you condensed, highperformance solutions that feature reduced size and easy
installation.
We design and provide customizable enclosures and cabling
options. Plus, we stock a wide variety of network, SAN,
mainframe and other cables to meet all your connectivity
requirements. And we can provide you with custom cables
and other value-added services that make your job easier,
like custom labeling, inventory tracking, special packaging,
design, fabrication and installation.
We have Registered Communications Distribution Designers
(RCDD) on-site and we're corporate members of both the BICSI
Data Center Standards Committee and AFCOM. The more you
get to know us, the more you’ll realize that we’re the right
partner to help you devise the customized solution you need.

Fiber Trunking
SKINNY-TRUNK™
MICRO-CORE DESIGN
FURCATION POINT
High-performance furcation
point minimizes dB loss.
Smaller diameter allows for
enhanced underfloor airflow
Fiber trunks are a convenient and economic
alternative to running multiple jumpers through
your data center. Trunks offer easy cable
management as well as significantly reduced field
installation times. They’re easy to unplug, recoil,
and reuse in the event of any moves, additions or
changes.
Our Skinny-Trunk™ fiber optic MTP® trunks
provide high-density connections in the smallest
space possible. These assemblies can be up to
60% smaller in cross-sectional area and 1/5 the
weight of distribution/MIC trunking, making
them ideal for all your Skinny-Trunk design needs.
And because they’re factory terminated and
tested, you can save yourself the trouble of field
terminations and install with confidence.

MTP® connections can
terminate 12 optical fibers
in a single ferrule connector.
Utilizing condensed, SkinnyTrunk technology allows
users to reduce the cabling
footprint, rack space, as well
as other costs associated
with wiring your data center
without sacrificing quality.
You still get the same high
performance and low loss as
with your standard jumpers or
trunks.
Our Skinny-Trunk solutions
offer trunking from 4 to 144
fiber count.

Harnesses
Ideal for data center
applications, fiber optic
harnesses convert MTP®
terminations to simplex or
duplex fiber connectors such
as LC or SC. They allow for
maximum fiber density within
a limited space. Our factoryterminated harnesses can also
reduce installation times by
up to 75%.
