  • Publication number: 20190075676
    Abstract: A fiber panel system includes a chassis and at least blades configured to mount to the chassis. Each blade is moveable relative to the chassis between a retracted (closed) position and at least one extended position. Cable slack is managed at the front and/or rear of each chassis to facilitate movement of the blades without pulling or bending the cables beyond a maximum bend limit. Each blade may be locked into one or more positions relative to the chassis.

  • Patent number: 10101542
    Abstract: In managed connectivity systems, media reading interfaces at adapter blocks read information from storage devices attached to plug connectors. Media reading interfaces include one or more contact members. The contact members of certain types of media reading interfaces are held together by a base body to be handled as a unit. Certain types of media reading interfaces have support contacts that increase the beam length of the contact members. Certain types of media reading interfaces rock within the adapter block.

  • Patent number: 9974200
    Abstract: A universal cable bracket that enables one or more cables to be secured to a telecommunications chassis accommodates cables of various sizes and styles. The cable bracket is configured to be mounted in one of multiple orientations relative to the chassis. One or more fasteners can be inserted through apertures in the bracket and a chassis mounting surface to secure the bracket into the desired orientation. Cables or fanout arrangements can be secured to a platform of the bracket via cable ties or other windings.

  • Patent number: 9778433
    Abstract: A blade arrangement for use in a bladed chassis system includes a splice module coupled to a blade. The splice module includes a splice region, a storage region, a first enter/exit region at the first side, and a second enter/exit region at the second side. Either of the enter/exit regions can be faced towards a rear of the blade when the splice module is mounted to the blade. The splice allows unterminated optical cables routed to the rear of the blade to be optically spliced to connectorized pigtails that are received at rear ports of optical adapters on the blade.

  • Patent number: 9549484
    Abstract: A fiber panel system includes a chassis including a backplane; and at least a first blade configured to mount to the chassis. The first blade is moveable relative to the chassis between a refracted (closed) position and at least one extended position. The first blade includes a coupler arrangement for connecting together media segments. The first blade remains electrically connected to the backplane of the chassis when moving between the retracted and extended positions.
