Fiber Patch Panels

RAC-4X 12-Port Fiber Optic Patch Panel loaded with 12 MTP cassettes
MTP® brand cassettes are most often installed into rack mount fiber optic patch panels. For example, the picture to the right shows 12 cassettes with 6 LC duplex connectors in the front in a RAC-4X fiber optic distribution unit. This particular installation has 144 fibers (12 LC connections multiplied by 12 cassettes). It takes up 4 units of rack space and in a world where real estate is king, this is a very important technology. Hook up 12 12-Fiber MTP brand cables in the back and it lights up 144 LC connections. Use those 144 connections to supply data to a variety of high throughput switches, etc.

You only have so much space in your data center so why not this space-saving solution. You don't have to buy a RAC-4X, we also have the RAC-1X which can hold 3 cassettes and takes up only 1 RU, or you can get a RAC-2X which can hold 6 cassettes and takes up 2 RU. Depending on your application and how much fiber you need to distribute, we have the variety of products to suit your application.

RAC-1X - Holds 3 Cassettes - 1 RU RAC-2X - Holds 6 Cassettes - 2 RU RAC-4X - Holds 12 Cassettes - 4 RU

Choose the right one for you. They fit most standard 19" racks and are fully accessible from the back and from the top. To accommodate the cassettes, you can remove the wire managers inside the patch panels. Made of 16-gauge steel with a black powder finish coat, these fiber patch panels will compliment your rack and save time, energy, and most importantly: space.
