Panduit Corp., a global leader in Unified Physical InfrastructureSM
(UPI)-based solutions, announces the expansion of its QuickNet™ Cassette
line to include tapped fiber optic cassettes, which work with diagnostic
and test equipment to provide visibility into network traffic. These
tools help data center managers troubleshoot networking problems,
monitor network performance to optimize operations, and maintain
compliance with regulations such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.
Tapped fiber cassettes operate like standard cassettes, but also feature
a passive fiber optic splitter to send a copy of all link traffic to
diagnostic and test equipment. Panduit tapped fiber cassettes feature a
thin-film filter-based optical splitter technology that provides the
most accurate split ratios and lowest insertion loss in the market
today. Competitive offerings may employ splitters based upon fused
bi-conical taper technology which produce less accurate split ratios and
higher insertion losses, degrading network performane.
"Filter-based optical splitters are the most accurate at optical
monitoring," said Jack Tison, Chief Technology Officer, Panduit. "Data
center managers can install this technology with confidence that the
tapped fiber cassette will provide both a monitoring link and live link
with the performance they expect from Panduit, without disrupting
Several configurations of the tapped cassette are available,
facilitating deployment in different applications, including designs for
use with crash cart applications or with rack-mounted monitoring
equipment. Panduit tapped fiber cassettes are available with both LC and
MTP connectivity, and with front and rear-mounted connectors. For more
