Sumitomo Unveils LGX-HD Patch Panel Product Line

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC — Sumitomo Electric Lightwave, a developer and manufacturer of optical fiber and connectivity solutions, announced its new 4th Level DataCenter Solutions LGX and High Density (HD) patch panel product line. According to the company, this is the industry’s first LGX and HD panel in one.

The primary differentiating factor from preexisting patch panels in the industry is that the 4th Level 1, 2, 3, and 4RU patch panels can be configured for various module footprints including LGX and HD, an option for both in the same panel, and other customized configurations. The 2RU can be configured with up to 288 LC connectors. By simply interchanging faceplates and standard cassette products from different manufacturers, installers and network technicians can now experience increased flexibility, versatility in their network design, and hardware cost savings. Prior to the 4th Level innovation, network installers would have to purchase a separate patch panel for LGX applications and another patch panel designed for their HD connectivity projects.

Other features of the panels include a user friendly design with shelf tray tilt or rear slide out for easy cable management access, innovative tray stop design that prevents unplanned tray egress from the patch panel, rugged construction of heavy gauge powder coated aluminum for extended product life, and mounting brackets that allow forward and backward adjustments within a standard 19” relay rack. The 4th Level panels are an ideal solution for data center, storage area network (SAN), and local area network (LAN) applications.
