AFL’s new ASCEND™ solutions are not built for what you need today, but what you will need tomorrow. The ASCEND platform is a modular, high-density rack-mount solution designed for data center applications.
The ASCEND platform is comprised of four main elements: high density fiber housings, optical cassettes, patch cord assemblies, and trunk cable assemblies. ASCEND fiber housings are available in 1RU, 2RU and 4RU sizes with densities of up to 144, 288, and 576 fibers, respectively. ACSEND optical cassettes are available in fanout, patch, and splice modules, with more to come. ASCEND patch cord assemblies are constructed with AFL’s DUAL-LINK cable and terminated with a field-reversible LC Uniboot connector. ASCEND trunk cable assemblies provide a high performance plug-and-play solution for premise installations where space is a premium.
Whether supporting incremental growth or a full-scale deployment, our ASCEND solutions deliver optimal fiber management and ease-of-use.
