Cabling specialist receives award for the development of a new cabling system for the transmission technology 400GBASE-SR8
Augsburg, October 1, 2020 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), manufacturer of innovative fiber optic cabling infrastructures in Europe, announces that the PreCONNECT® SEDECIM cabling system was recognized among the best in the industry by the 2020 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards. Rosenberger OSI was rewarded as a GOLD honoree for the development of the new cabling system.
PreCONNECT® SEDECIM features 16 OM4 multimode fibers arranged in a row. This connector face enables data transfer of the 400 GBit/s via eight parallel full-duplex transmission channels (lanes) of 50 GBit each with PAM4 coding (8x50G=400G) over a range of up to 100 meters. The special feature of PreCONNECT® SEDECIM is that the ferrule endfaces of the MTP®/MPO 16 fiber multimode connector are 8° APC angularly polished. Due to this angled polish, the return loss could be significantly improved.
“The second GOLD award in a row makes us very happy and confirms another milestone in our product development. With PreCONNECT® SEDECIM, we are responding to the ever-increasing market demand for ever-higher transmission speeds and offer a high-performance infrastructure for data centers,” concludes Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director of Rosenberger OSI.
