Sumitomo Electric Lightwave has introduced its 4th Level DataCenter Solutions LGX and High Density (HD) patch panel product line, an LGX and HD panel in one. The new panels are being unveiled at the 2014 BICSI Winter Conference & Exposition in Orlando, FL, this week.

The 4th Level 1, 2, 3, and 4RU patch panels are designed to be configured for various module footprints including LGX and HD, an option for both in the same panel, and other customized configurations. The 2RU can be configured with up to 288 LC connectors. The panels are designed to allow interchanging faceplates and standard cassette products from different manufacturer.

Other features include shelf tray tilt or rear slide out for cable management access, heavy gauge powder coated aluminum construction, and mounting brackets that allow forward and backward adjustments within a standard 19-inch relay rack. They're intended for data center, storage area network (SAN), and local area network (LAN) applications.
