SMART LC-MPO Cassette Panel



  • Very high density panel, supports 48 duplex LC adapters (96 fibers) in 1U of rack space

  • Simple assembly and installation: the cassettes are mounted to the panel separately

  • Pre-terminated MPO cables are connected directly to the cassettes

  • PatchView and non-PatchView options






    PatchView™ Capability (for panels with cassettes) 

    • Special SMART MPO Cassette Panel, when used in conjunction with RiT's PatchView System, can scan the wiring center configuration and subsequently report the connectivity status
    • Patching information is displayed on the management station for cabling management and control
    • LED indicators on cassettes identify any two ports patched together
    • Computerized LED-displays guide the technician through performing Moves, Adds and Changes (MACs) 

    The SMART LC-MPO Cassette Panel is a high-density fiber optic patch panel that offers a real-time physical network management option with RiT's PatchView system. 


    The LC connector is used as patching interface. The MPO connector connects horizontal and trunk cables on the back of the panel. Together these are quickly becoming the answer to the market's demand for increased optical port density. Utilizing the MPO cassettes' density, the SMART MPO Cassette patch panel supports up to 96 fibers in only 1U of rack space. 


    The cassettes are sold separately and can be individually mounted to the panel. This provides the user with maximum flexibility regarding the number of required ports.   


    A special panel model can be connected to the RiT PatchView system. The system continuously scans the connectivity configuration of all the patch cords, and reports the status back to the network administrator's management station using a SNMP interface. 


    RiT's LC SMART Jumper™ patch cords must be used in order to benefit from the advantages of the PatchView system. These cords, described in greater detail in the Fiber Optic Cables and Cords section, feature a duplex fiber cable and single copper wire in a common jacket, and an LC duplex connector with an extra spring-loaded copper contact. Regular LC patchcords can be used when PatchView scanning is not desired.
