Black Box Offers Custom Pre-Terminated Fibre with Instant Online Quote Generation

May 2017 - Black Box is introducing a line of made-to-order pre-terminated fibre cables which can be configured and quoted online in seconds at

With just a few clicks, the configurator walks users through cable types, cores, connectors, and other options, including breakouts and pulling eyes. The configurator builds a custom SKU and provides end-users with a price for instant ordering.

Pre-terminated fibre cable saves IT professionals, resellers, integrators, and infrastructure contractors time and money on enterprise fibre deployments. Lead times are greatly reduced. The company can build and ship the cables in as little as 2 days. Black Box fully tests and labels cables before shipment so they arrive plug-and-play ready. Installation time can be reduced by as much as 70% by eliminating long field termination times and errors.

Pre-terminated cables are quite economical too. Black Box estimates that users will save money with pre-terminated fibre cable compared to buying the bulk cable and terminating it themselves. Users will eliminate costly fibre waste, consumables, expensive termination equipment, and the labor needed to terminate the cable.

"The new pre-terminated fibre offering is in response to customer demand for faster, easier data centre deployments," says Ryan Hopkins, Cable Product Manager at Black Box. "Pre-terminated fibre gives users a no-hassle, error-free way to install and change enterprise fibre without worrying about the cost, time, or reliability of field terminations."

Pre-terminated fibre cable options include:

  • Five cores: OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, and OS2
  • Five cable types: indoor (tight-buffered), indoor/outdoor (loose-tube and armoured loose-tube), and zipcord
  • One jacket: LSZH
  • Six connectors: LC and SC in both APC and UPC polishes, ST in UPC polish, and E2000
  • Multiple strand counts from 2 to 24. Other counts are available on request.


Black Box's pre-terminated fibre assemblies can be configured and quoted online in seconds.
