HUBER+SUHNER LiSA Fibre Optic Systems

HUBER+SUHNER LiSA fibre optic systems are commonly used as a centralised cross-connect in the main distribution area of large data centres or enterprise IT environments.

The HUBER+SUHNER LiSA fibre optic system consists of Cable Distribution Racks (CDRs), or Optical Distribution Frames (ODFs) as they are also known as, Fibre Trays, Patch Panels, Distribution Units and a Fibre Containment Raceway system for routing and distributing fibre cables from one area to another.

With a 300 mm depth and full access from the front side, LiSA CDR cabinets can be positioned against unused walls, at the end of cold aisles or back-to-back on a single floor tile. LiSA racks have a density of 1500 LC ports per rack or 3000 LC ports per tile when placed back-to-back, in MTP® applications the density is 1080 or 2160 MTP ports respectively.

The main difference between LiSA and conventional 19″ panels is the fact that LiSA is fully accessible from the front side. This means that users can install, patch or remove fibre trays simply by sliding out the tray. This feature is much more attractive than 19″ panels which generally require access to the rear side of the cabinet. Patching to the LISA rack is fast and easy and a dedicated slack storage area for jumpers allows users to make “any-to-any” patching with just two lengths of cord.

The HUBER+SUHNER LiSA fibre management system allows complete access to all incoming and outgoing fibres from the front side, unlike conventional systems that require access to the rear of the cabinet. This innovative approach allows operators to position LiSA racks back-to-back on a single floor tile for increased density, or alternatively against an unused wall. LiSA racks can also be placed against the side of equipment cabinets or at the end of cold/hot aisle containment systems.

The LiSA side access system benefits from integrated cable service loops that facilitate “anytime access” to all cables and connectivity enabling quicker and more intuitive access to connections without risking any pre-installed fibres. While LiSA fibre trays are available in different colours for faster identification and traceability.
