Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company, has released Micro Data Centre Plenum (MDP), a new fiber optic design that targets the data centre/storage area network (DC/SAN) market.

MDP incorporates Berk-Tek’s patented dry loose-tube technology in a smaller O.D. in order to adapt it specifically for the indoor-only DC/SAN and building backbone environment.

The new patent-pending construction provides a 50% smaller cross sectional area than equivalent fiber count indoor cables, the company says. In addition, the cables can help prevent cabinet and pathway congestion, which enhances airflow and facilitating more efficient cooling.

According to Berk-Tek, the new line of MDP cables is available with plenum ratings up to 72 fibers, and allows for significant cost reduction over traditional indoor cable design options.
