» Application examples for hyperscale data centers include equipment backplanes, panel patching, cabled backplanes, high- fiber-count hydra assemblies, high-density trunk connector assemblies, and equipment plug-to-plug patch cords in single-mode and multimode OM4.
» An emerging hydrophobic and anti-static end-face treatment called the Lotus Effect employs a bonded plasma coating that creates a hydrophobic property on the connector end face, achieves high surface tension and anti-static properties, and makes it difficult for liquid and debris to accumulate and stick. Lotus Effect technology can be applied to single-ferrule connectors, but its current focus is on multifiber connectivity for single-mode and multimode applications.
