Fiber Trunks

Fiber Trunks

Fiber trunks are pre-terminated cable assemblies connecting switches, servers, patch panels, and zone distribution areas in the data center, or serving as the backbone of enterprise fiber networks. When compared to field-terminated cabling, there are many reasons to consider pre-terminated optical fiber trunks. Network deployments are faster since there are no field terminations and minimal testing is required. Jobsite clean up is easier as the amount of waste and packing material is greatly reduced. With the right fiber trunk backbone, you can migrate from 10 to 40, 100, 200 and 400 G/bs while reusing the backbone. That means no rip-and-replace and greatly reduced network downtime.

  • Connector Types
    Choose from MTP trunk cables, LC trunk cables or SC trunk cables. You may require different connectors on the first end as the second. Configuring your requirement is easy on the Leviton fiber trunk configurator.
  • Armoring
    In addition to non-armored trunks, ARMOR-TEK™ trunk cables are available through the fiber trunk configurator. ARMOR-TEK offers a unique spiral wrap armoring that preserves cable flexibility while offering durability for a range of installation environments. More information »
  • Field Termination Options
    In instances where final project lengths are uncertain or you have limited space in your cable conduit, a smart option is to order pre-terminated connectors on the first end of your fiber trunks and a blunt end on the second. This will make it easier to pull the fiber trunk through tight spaces, and then give you the benefits of a pre-terminated fiber trunk with the ability to trim and field terminate the second end as needed.
  • Polarity
    Maintaining polarity in your fiber network can be a challenge. Standard polarity on Leviton fiber trunks with MTP connections is Method B. For LC and SC connections, the fiber trunk standard is A to B polarity.
  • Breakout Length
    The Leviton fiber trunk configurator is pre-set with the recommended breakout lengths for a fully loaded Leviton enclosure, but your network might have different requirements. You can easily make adjustments while configuring your fiber trunk. For example, fiber trunks that will be installed into an HDX High Density Patching Frame should use 24-inch breakout lengths.
  • Pulling Eye
    The pulling eye protects fiber trunk connectors during installation. It completely covers the breakout length, transferring any pulling force from the assembly to the pulling eye sleeve. During fiber trunk configurations, you can specify which end to have a pulling eye installed.
  • Labeling
    To assist with network manageability, you can choose from standard labeling of cables and breakouts, or customize your labeling for consistency with existing cabling or labeling preferences.
