    Preparing for the Future withBelden FiberExpress Solutions

    Belden has been involved in the development ofoptical fiber components since 1972 evolvingto its present status as an international supplierof high quality, cost-effective optical fibercabling systems.

    The FiberExpress Solution is the culminationof Beldens experience in the optical fiber arena,offering users a complete, high-performance,end-to-end cabling system that supportsboth centralized and fiber-to-the desk (FTTD)topologies, as well as in-building or campusbackbone cabling configurations.

    The FiberExpress Solution is, however, muchmore than an assemblage of top-performingproducts. It represents a complete approachto the methodology of fiber optic cabling, i.e.,FiberExpress systems are unique in their abilityto offer both superior performance and amore cost effective, speedier and less complexinstallation process than traditional fiber opticcabling systems.

    Belden developed the FiberExpressSolution to assure the smooth operationof your network and to provide for efficientnetwork management while continuallyreducing your total cost of ownership andpreparing your system for the future.

  • FiberExpress Solutions consist of a fullrange of multimode and single-mode cables,connectivity hardware, patch cords, cableassemblies, field connectors and a numberof work area outlets. These solutions arecharacterized as fiber-to-the-desk systems,pre-terminated systems and in-building orcampus backbone systems.

    FiberExpress Pre-terminated Systems

    The ultimate in quick, easy and reliable opticalnetworking is the FiberExpress Pre-term System.All components are factory connectorized andfully tested to ensure fast deployment andtremendous reliability. This flexible solution canbe deployed for traditional LAN systems, as wellas in specialized applications such as Data Centersand Storage Area Networks.

    The FiberExpress Pre-term System is alsowell-suited for temporary situations, such asdisaster recovery installations or conventioncenter services.

    FiberExpress Backbone Systems

    In todays environment, cabling networkbackbones are typically designed using acombination of both multimode and single-modefiber cables. Configuring the right fiberbackbone for your unique premise or campusapplication is a complex process. An inadequateor improperly installed network backbone canseverely limit overall network performance and,therefore, your businesss productivity andefficiency. Fortunately, selecting the right fiberbackbone cabling solution is comparatively easywhen you specify Belden FiberExpress Systems.

    Many factors will influence the design ofyour specific optical fiber backbone infrastructureand the appropriate mix of single-mode andmultimode fiber products and technologies.

    FiberExpress Fiber-to-the-desk(FTTD) Systems

    Whether for horizontal distribution or centralizedcabling, FiberExpress solutions include a widerange of products such as work area outletsand large-capacity fiber management productsdesigned to make FTTD applications a costeffective reality.

    FiberExpress solutionsare for fiber-to-the-deskor centralized cablingapplications and thebackbone infrastructure.FiberExpress Pre-Terminated systemsare the ultimate solutionfor quick, easy, andreliable installations.

    Key Design Criteria

    Capacity and Topology Planning

    Deployed Belden Horizontal UTP SystemsThe role of the network backbone is to supportthe deployed or planned horizontal cablingsystem. Higher bandwidth horizontal systems,such as Belden's IBDN System 10GX or 4800,may indicate use of single-mode fiber in the back-bone for superior overall network performance.

    Horizontal to Backbone Data Rate RatioTraditional design guidelines use a 1:10 data rateratio; indicating, for example, that when 1 Gb/sapplications such as 1000BASE-T Ethernet areoperating across the horizontal, the backboneshould be capable of supporting throughputsof 10 Gb/s or more.

    Distances and TopologiesThe effective capacities of single-modeand multimode fiber channels have distancelimitations. Generally speaking, single-modefiber channels can operate at greater speeds overgreater distances than multimode fiber channels.Distance considerations will be important criteriain campus or MAN backbone design, and mustalso be considered for in-building backbonesand centralized fiber network topologies.

    Return on Investment

    Legacy Networks and Active EquipmentWe seldom have the luxury of designing anddeploying networks with a clean slate andaccommodating existing cabling infrastructuresand active equipment must be factored intobackbone design considerations and mayaffect the single-mode/multimode mix.

    Cost of OwnershipAt first glance, fiber channels are typically moreexpensive than UTP channels; while single-modefiber channels are typically more expensive thanmultimode channels. But, cost must always beconsidered in the context of performance, featuresand benefits and ultimately in terms of value.

    Future-proofingCabling infrastructure design must considernot just current requirements, but also futuregrowth, capacity and new applications. The sameis true with fiber backbone planning and design.A marginal increase in investment today canextend the operational lifespan of your backbone,thereby increasing the return on your backbonenetworking investment.
