    The two core racks are interconnected to each other, utilizing both fibre optic cabling and copper cabling. As for fibre cabling, LC OM4 cables and OS2 cables are used to connect the LC adapter panels and MTP-12 Type B multimode trunk cables are connected between MTP up to up adapter panels. For copper system, the 24-port patch panels and Cat6 copper cables are connected. Furthermore, the connections of core racks and distribution racks are in the same way.
