Nexans launches ‘ENSPACE’ at CeBIT 2016

A fibre system specifically designed for ultra high density data centre applications

EnspaceParis, March 14, 2016 - Nexans is today launching its new ultra high density LANmark-OF ENSPACE solutions for data centres. The range includes patch panels, cables and connectors which will help data centres meet the growing data demands. 

The new range of fibre panels features three individual sliding trays per height unit (‘U’). This format supports 144 LC connections per ‘U’ and each individual tray can be pulled forward to allow access for installing or disconnecting cords.

ENSPACE supports both LC & MTP pre-terms providing scalability, while the pre-term cables feature Nexans’ tiny Micro-Bundle cable design which can contain 96 fibres in a cable with a diameter of just 6.4 mm to save containment space. Patch cords feature highly flexible, bend insensitive fibre to accommodate the high density patching.

Features include:

  • 144 LC connections per 'U'
  • LC & MTP pre-terms supported
  • 10, 40, 100Gb/s and beyond
  • Fingertip access patching
  • Easy addition of ports

Joost Grillaert, Product Manager for Fibre LAN systems at Nexans Cabling Solutions: “The development of LANmark-OF ENSPACE was the logical next step for us and we have been refining it, by co-development with a large customer in the financial sector. ENSPACE brings a number of benefits to the end-user by optimising space usage and cable management. With ENSPACE we can offer end-users a fibre cabling solution that is able to reduce rack space by 50% compared to conventional fibre systems.”


Nexans is holding live demonstrations of the new LANmark-OF ENSPACE in Hall No. 12, Stand: C-17/1 at the DatacenterDynamics Pavilion at CeBIT
