German term or phrase: LSA+ Leisten
There is a reference, in an inventory of electrical and telecoms installations, wiring etc. for a construction project, to laying a telephone cable on these:

Telefonkabel auf LSA+ Leisten auflegen.

And, not being as technically aware as I had hoped, I have no clue what is meant here...(other than that LSA+ is possibly a company) Help!! :)

LSA+ strips
Explanation:
LSA+ is a trademark of Krone, so if the system in question specifically uses Krone products, it should remain as is in the translation.

'LSA' apparently stands for 'löt-, schraub und abisolierfreie Anschlusstechnik' -- see:

Abkürzung: LSA
LSA ist eine Anschlusstechnik die mit Schneidklemmen arbeitet. Dabei wird die Ader mit einem speziellen Anlegewerkzeug in eine Schneidklemme gepresst. Die Klemme durchdringt die Isolierung und stellt so die Verbindung her.

I have the impression that 'LSA+' is often used (incorrectly in legal terms) in a non-proprietary sense, in which case 'IDT connector strips' would be a reasonable translation.
