MX Xpress Application and Installation

All connectivity options. No fuss, no mess.

Top-of-Rack | Distribution Area | Up to 100G

For Top of Rack and Distribution Areas
The MX Xpress Fibre System is designed to connect all areas of your data centre.

For example, connecting the access layer of your network can be completed with Top-of-Tack (ToR) 1U MX panels. These can be connected back to a central rack or an end of row rack distribution area using multimode 12 core or 24 core LC Duplex MX Xpress cassette to cassette units. Where demand for ports is higher the MX 2U housing panel can be used to gain maximum port density per 1U.
As you move up your network to aggregation and core layers and the requirement moves to higher data rates, the MX Xpress System’s pre-connnected 40G and 100G links will meet these needs.

For low density fibre areas

The MX 1U housing panel can be used as a distribution panel and can connect to up to 5 server racks with 12 LC ports in each server rack.
