Eliminate polarity, gender, and migration challenges
As data speeds increase, data center managers are faced with a multitude of design challenges. Maintaining fiber light path polarity is one such challenge.
There are three methods approved by data center standards documents. But each of these methods has limitations – and that’s what made a solution like our Multi-Path™ system necessary.
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has three approved polarity methods as standards, each specified in the ANSI/TIA-568.3-D document. These three polarity methods (Method A, Method B and Method C) define light path and connectivity methods for duplex and parallel signals.
Each method entails different gender requirements on the MPO trunks and/or jumpers for duplex and parallel signals. This forces you to carry different types of cables and cassettes in your infrastructure, and keep track of where each is located.
Multi-Path is a simple, effective system that can effectively handle multiple paths with very little disruption or added cost. The goal of the Multi-Path system is to simplify your cabling migration process and reduce the need for multiple transition components.
