In September, the Opt-X SDX Mini Wall-Mount Fiber Optic Enclosure was recognized by the annual Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards program for offering expanded networking possibilities. The mini enclosure — part of the flexible SDX enclosure line — provides a compact, zero-RU patching field for a wide range of applications and environments, including the Internet of Things (IoT), fog computing, and micro data centers. The space-saving footprint enables applications ranging from traditional telecommunications room patching in an enterprise setting to the implementation of small-scale edge data centers. Its compact 6-inch by 6.25-inch size lets network designers construct innovative remote environments, putting micro data centers for storage and processing networks in new or unconventional locations to support the latest IoT applications.
"It's a big honor to receive this award," said Leviton Senior Product Manager Tony Yuen. "We're all very proud because this product is genuinely innovative, and there's a real need in the industry for the unique, user-focused capabilities it offers. What sets it apart from other enclosures on the market is its density — up to 24 fibers — in a highly compact footprint, the fact that it can be stacked on top of other SDX mini enclosures for added space, and the additional security provided by the optional locking feature."
The Opt-X SDX Mini Wall-Mount Enclosure offers a range of mounting options including wall-mount, surface-mount, DIN-rail, and even cubicle walls. The enclosure accommodates up to 24 fibers (using LC), 12 fibers (using SC), 144 MTP fibers, or 6 ports (using copper), and enables easy network expansion by ganging multiple enclosures.
