Cable management to support a potentially unlimited number of fiber connections
Side-by-side, back-to-back and left or right configurations
4,608 fibers per frame; up to 55% higher density without compromising ease-of-use
Migrate from Base-12 to Base-8/16/24 without changing housings
Ever-increasing data center bandwidth requirements, IP migration in broadcast environments and new stadium technology deployments (such as 5G and IoT) all require more fiber connections. These fiber connections need to be supported effectively while also ensuring easy access to patch cords and trunk cables for quick maintenance and moves, adds and changes.
Achieve successful cable management, handle high amounts of fiber connections and add density to the optical distribution frame (ODF) with DCX’s one-of-a-kind innovations.
Maximum signal integrity through bend radius control for incoming and outgoing cables.
Simple patch cord access via pull-out trays and clearance around connector.
Futureproof functionality, supporting migration from Base-12 to Base-8, Base-16 and Base-24 without infrastructure changes.
Highest fiber termination density available in a small footprint 4,608 terminations per cabinet.
Flexibility of termination methods, including MPO trunk cables, multi-fiber trunk cables with LC connectors, fusion splicing with pigtails or splice-on connectors.
Unlimited Scalability with modular frames that act as building blocks.
DCX Cabinets are fully configurable, frontaccess cabinets that serve as a high-density fiber interconnect or the main building block for a large fiber cross connect. They protect fiber connections with a lockable front door and side panels that can be unclipped from the inside. Assemble side by side and back to back for scalability.Learn More
DCX Housing are available in left-to-right and right-to-left cable flow configurations for optimized management. The housing have a front-access design with 12 trays that pull out for easy access to cables connected to the back of adapter frames and cassettes. Modular cassettes can be mixed on the same tray (Base-8, Base-12, Base-16 or Base-24), enabling easy and cost-effective migration and preventing density loss.Learn More
DCX adapter frames and cassettes have a modular, compact design that allows for assembly of four (Base-12) or six (Base-8) cassettes per housing tray.Learn More
eStruxture, a network and cloud-neutral data center company, was looking for a networking manufacturer that could provide innovative, high-density fiber solutions for its 185,000-square-foot facility in Montreal, Canada. After analyzing several fiber systems, eStruxture chose Belden’s leading-edge DCX System: No other solution combines the same density capabilities with a proven track record of performance and quality. The DCX System was easy for operators to learn how to use and install; it also allowed eStruxture to save space inside tight rooms. James Beer, eStruxture senior VP of operations, says the company plans to roll out the DCX System across all data centers after its success in Montreal. Watch this short testimonial to learn more.
