Blog Entry: Fiber Closure Is Mostly Installed In 19-Inch Relays In many cases, Fiber Closure racks are preferred where the power line is close to the data cable to avoid electromagnetic crosstalk immune to the fiber optic rack. If there is an air conditioning and/or fan motor that may be required by the computer system and is close to the data cable, the use of a fiber optic rack will avoid crosstalk interference with the data signal. Distance considerations are also important in the setup of the computer room data system. With fiber optic racks, we can extend the distance to run high-speed data compared to copper. If the traditional copper cabling system must remain operational, a media converter connects the fiber optic system to the MTP 12 fiber quality termination connector port and has multiple RJ 45 ports on the front for copper cabling. Also available is a smaller media converter that can be connected to one or two copper duplex ports at the input and convert the signal to one or two fiber duplex output ports for 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Network system. By utilizing these devices, existing legacy systems can be extended to interface with more remote systems that were previously possible. Fiber distribution frames are mostly mounted in 19-inch relay racks, but they can also be mounted on free-standing rails, cabinets and walls. For fiber-optic cabling installations, you should carefully plan the location of the fiber-optic connection hardware, including the fiber distribution frame. You can choose between direct cross-connects and patch panels. If you choose to use a fiber optic panel, you must also arrange the routing and trimming of the fiber patch cord. In the meantime, you can also choose to use fiber optic rack management brackets to avoid hanging fiber jumpers. They are used for horizontal wiring as well as for lightwave device connections. You should carefully plan the layout of the wiring so that you can easily arrange these panels to get the proper fiber jumper length. Both types of panels should be as close as possible to each other. In large installations, there may be several patch panels in the fiber patch location. They are usually placed side by side, so the fiber jumpers can be cross-connected directly without climbing the rails through the path through the top of the rack. If you have hundreds of copper cables from the server to the switch, it may block air flow under the floor of the computer room. If you're working on a smaller, thinner fiber rack, you won't have too much blocking on the airflow. If you have to pass the wall between the computer rooms, the necessary holes are much smaller and easier to stop. The weight of the cable held by the track at the top of the cabinet is also quite small. And the volume is much smaller.
