New London, CT— To help users achieve compliance with TIA/EIA-568-B.3-1 in support of IEEE 802.3ae's 10-Gigabit Ethernet, Ortronics unveiled Jan. 9 the latest addition to its OptiMo fiber-optic system. OptiMo's new fiber-optic assemblies include simplex and duplex patch cords, and 1-, 6-, and 12-connector pigtails in multimode 62.5/125, enhanced bandwidth 50/125, standard 50/125 and singlemode.

Ortronics reports its new fiber-optic assemblies provide guaranteed reliability, quality and performance for patching and workstation applications in networks running Ethernet, ATM and Fibre Channel applications. Ortronics also introduced its OptiMo 10G enhanced bandwidth 50/125 multi-mode assemblies, which are compliant with TIA/EIA-568-B.3-1 and ready to support 10-Gigabit Ethernet applications.

Ortronics adds that its fiber-optic assemblies ensure low insertion loss and robust transmission in structured cabling environments. Multimode assemblies have a proprietary physical contact (PC) finish, while Singlemode products are available in an economical PC and also Ultra Physical Contact (UPC) finish, exhibiting low return-loss characteristics suitable for demanding high-bit-rate optical networks.
