Tripp Lite Releases Pre-Assembled 40 Gb to 10 Gb Breakout Fiber Patch Panels

The new rack-mount fiber patch panels offer a hassle-free alternative to breakout cables. By ChannelPro

Tripp Lite, a manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has introduced a new series of pre-assembled 40 Gb to 10 Gb Breakout Fiber Patch Panels that are populated with high-density breakout cassettes that include two-meter built-in MTP cables. These rack-mount fiber patch panels are designed for quick connection of 10 Gb equipment, such as servers, routers and firewalls, to a 40 Gb switch.

The MTP cables in Tripp Lite’s solution are integrated into the breakout cassettes and connect to the QSFP transceivers on a 40 Gb switch. The cassettes break out the 40 Gb switch connections into multiple 10 Gb connections. From there, off-the-shelf duplex LC cables are used to connect 10 Gb equipment to the 10 Gb ports on the cassette. This modular solution provides organized cable management, uses readily available LC cables, scales to accommodate growth, and supports future 100 Gb and 400 Gb network speeds.

Tripp Lite’s pre-assembled breakout fiber patch panels feature Base-8 cabling and are available in 1U and 2U configurations for singlemode (8.3/125) and OM4 multimode (50/125) fiber applications.
