February 3, 2014 – Sumitomo Electric Lightwave will debut its 4th Level DataCentre Solutions LGX and High Density (HD) patch panel product line—which claims to be the industry’s first LGX and HD panel in one—at this week’s BICSI Winter Conference & Exposition in Orlando, Fla.

The 4th Level 1, 2, 3, and 4RU patch panels can be configured for various module footprints including LGX and HD, an option for both in the same panel. The 2RU can be configured with up to 288 LC connectors. By simply interchanging faceplates and standard cassette products from different manufacturers, users can now experience increased flexibility, versatility in their network design, and hardware cost savings, says the company. The 4th Level panels are suitable for data centre, storage area network (SAN), and local area network (LAN) applications.
