IANOS Chassis – Fibre Optic Management for High Density Fibre Applications
IANOS chassis provides fibre optic management for high density fibre applications with 72 ports per 1U of rack space. This extreme packing density reduces the total cost of ownership and allows valuable 19in rack space to be occupied with revenue generating active equipment. IANOS chassis has been specifically designed for server and switch applications. The 1U chassis is ideal for low to medium density, while the 4U chassis is for high density SAN switches.
IANOS chassis is constructed with three sliding trays on the left and right sides of the chassis. Each tray can be slid out independently for quick and easy access to patch cords, with minimum disruption to pre-installed cords. The split design of the IANOS chassis also facilitates separation of cables entering or exiting the chassis, enabling redundant cable paths to be created, with clearer identification of live / redundant traffic.
IANOS modules can be inserted from the front or rear of the chassis and it is possible to mix and match any of the IANOS single or twin modules in the same individual chassis. The central door system of the IANOS chassis further provides clear separation between the two sides of the panel, and prevents users from crossing fibres from one side of the chassis to the other.
