Innovative module enables patching with maximum packing density in the rear area

Equal port density in the rear area and in the patch area: tde presents tML Reverse Module 

Dortmund/Germany, 25 April 2024. tde – trans data elektronik GmbH is adding a pioneering innovation to the tML system platform: with the new tML Reverse Module, the network specialist is the first manufacturer to offer a module that can be fitted on the platform in two directions. Meaning that patching is now also possible in the rear area. The same number of ports can be integrated at the front and rear with maximum packing density. The module is compatible with all standard connectors, including the new highly compact MDC connector.

Constantly growing data volumes and transfer rates mean ever greater challenges for data centres worldwide. The limited and expensive space in data centres play an important role in this. For many years tde has been making it possible to optimise the use of available space or even reduce space requirements with the help of the tML system platform. The network expert is now presenting the latest addition to the platform: the tML Reverse Module can be fitted in two directions – at the rear as well as in the patch area. “Servers and storage devices have connectors at the rear. It therefore makes sense to move patching to the rear. Thereby the patch cord lengths become shorter and the cable volume enclosed, is reduced. With the new Reverse Module, it is possible to also equip the front side with the orientation to the rear. This gives the user an additional degree of flexibility on site”, says André Engel, Managing Director of tde.

Reverse Module enables maximum port densities
The module also offers the option of realising the same port density in the rear area as in the patch area. Applications such as Cross Connect, Spine Leaf or even splitter modules are therefore made possible with maximum port density. For example, twelve LC duplex ports can be integrated into one module, both at the front and at the rear. Eight modules on one height unit result in 96 LC duplex ports at the front and rear. With the MDC connector, the packing density can be duplicated again. Good to know: The new MMC connector can also be integrated into the tML Reverse module.

Conclusion: The innovative tML reverse module can be combined in a variety of ways. All standard connectors can now finally be integrated. In addition to the MMC, LC Duplex and MDC, these also include ST, SC Duplex, E2000, MPO, SN and CS.

The tML – tde Modular Link System
tML is a patented, modular cabling system consisting of three key components: the module, trunk cable and rack mount enclosure. The system components are 100 percent manufactured, pre-assembled and tested in Germany. They enable plug-and-play installation on site – especially in data centres, but also in industrial environments – within the shortest possible time. Heart of the system are the rear MPO/MTP or MMC and Telco connectors, which can be used to connect at least six or twelve ports at a time. Depending on the module configuration, transmission rates of up to 800 G are currently possible. The fiber optic and TP modules can be used together in a module carrier with a very high port density.
