Ortronics/Legrand Introduces Momentum® 3 Modular

New London, CT, January 11, 2008 - Ortronics/Legrand, a global leader in high performance copper, fiber and wireless structured cabling solutions, will introduce the Momentum 3 modular, pre-terminated fiber optic cabling system at the BICSI Winter Conference, January 13 - 16 at the Gaylord Palms Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

Momentum 3 is ideal for high density data center applications that require the simplicity and reliability of a plug-and-go installation. Designed for use in mission critical data centers and storage area networks, the Momentum 3 pre-terminated modular fiber optic system enables quick deployment, eliminates the possibility of optical performance flaws, and provides increased flexibility for network design. Momentum 3 makes moves, adds and changes quick, easy and error-free, and ensures unsurpassed optical performance with superior optical fiber and best-in-class pre-terminated connectors.

Available with LC or SC adapters, the Momentum 3 fiber cassettes are available for 50-micron laser optimized, single-mode or 62.5/125-micron fiber MTP/MPO® backbone cables. Momentum 3 also includes new premium performance low-loss LC 50-micron LOMF cassettes and patch cords. When used together, the low loss cassettes and patch cords provide a total cassette insertion loss of 0.5dB.
