Lite Linke Products
GEM Cable MTP® Lite Linke products are categorized under three main sections; Cassettes & Chassis, Assemblies, Accessories. Please expand the items below each section for more information, including our links for each item on our Product Depot and their spec sheet.
CHASSIS PATCH PANELS & CASSETTES
The Lite Linke MTP® chassis patch panel options are either in a 1U or 3U format, and are both housings for the premium grade, Lite Linke 24f MTP® ½U cassettes, delivering high density fibre distribution. Both options provide a highly efficient fibre optic connectivity solution using MTP® to LC presentation. The tool-less and pluggable network eliminates the need for expensive on-site splicing and greatly reduces installation time. *MTP® is a registered trademark of US CONEC Ltd.

The Lite Linke MTP®* Solution is a premium grade, hyper high density 19” cassette and chassis system. It operates on similar lines to conventional networks, insomuch as a trunk cable, patch panels at each end and jumper cables patching to the operating hardware. Lite Linke MTP® solutions provide a more efficient, condensed method – a tool-less and pluggable *high density population fibre optic network, without the need for expensive on-site splicing and thus reducing installation time.
*As the solution is designed for High Density applications, Lite Linke LC HD assemblies must be used in conjunction with the cassette.
MTP® Lite Trunk Cable Assemblies are of a lightweight single jacket construction, designed to optimise space saving of trunk patching. The 12f cable has a 3.2mm outer diameter while the 24f version being marginally larger at 3.6mm. These compact cables are packed with Kevlar® which provides the necessary endurance for routing and patching purposes, though best used within a Comms Room or Data Suite environment.
MTP® Tuff Trunk Cable Assemblies are of a Robust Double Jacket construction, designed for longer length trunk patching. Incredibly, the provision of a second jacket benefits the cable by an additional 500N of crush resistance to an overall total of 1000N. The cables retain their compactness with only 4.7mm O.D for 12f and 5.4mm for the 24f version. These cables are packed with Kevlar® which provides the necessary endurance for routing and patching purposes, providing links between Comms Rooms or Data Centres.
MTP® Multi-Lite Trunk assemblies are a neat solution for providing up to four MTP®-MTP® links within a compact, high density ruggedised cable.
The cable construction consists of four ruggedized 12f tubes over-sheathed with a LSZH jacket. Two layers of Kevlar® form the reinforcement and provide ample mechanical resistance beyond expected installation handling.
MTP® Multi-Tuff Trunk assemblies offer exceptional fibre counts from 48f up to 144f, all contained within one robust trunk link assembly.
Typical configurations of up to 12x 12f MTP® to 12x 12f MTP® or 6x 24f MTP® to 6x 24f MTP® assemblies can be provided. The Multi-Tuff trunk provides exceptional durability when compared to traditional MTP® trunk cable, with a crush resistance of 2000N and tensile strength in excess of 1500N.
Ruggedised Harnesses or Fan-outs, as they’re sometimes known, allow the direct connection between MTP® adapters and other connector types.
Typical use for these assemblies is for QSFP 40G SR4 connectivity where the break-out units split into 8x fibres or 4x 10G channels and are interoperable between differing QFSP manufacturers. Other configurations are MTP® 12/24f into 12/24 sub-unit tails.
Utilising the feature packed LC HD Switchable Uni-boot connector on your assemblies offers the most efficient use of rack space.
Combining two fibres into a single round 3mm jacket can save up to half the patching cable space while the disconnection latch makes for easy removal of the assembly without disturbing the neighbouring ports.
