OFS Expands In-Living-Unit FTTH offerings

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — FTTH Connect 2016, Booth 306 — OFS, a leading manufacturer of innovative fiber optic products announces three new Fiber in the Home Products – the InvisiLight® Drop Solution, the SlimBox™ Wall Plate, and an ultra-compact 80 x 80 Module for the InvisiLight Indoor Living Unit (ILU) Solution.

Service providers are installing fiber not just to the home but also inside the home to reach indoor Optical Network Terminals (ONTs). This poses unique challenges for service providers, which are addressed by fast, low skill installation that blends into the customer’s décor. To continue addressing these needs, OFS is launching three new compact solutions for the living unit.

The new InvisiLight Drop Solution enables a service provider to make a seamless transition from OFS’ EZ-Bend® rugged outdoor cable to the InvisiLight ILU Solution.  It offers a faster, virtually invisible way to extend OFS EZ-Bend drop cable from outside to inside the living unit by eliminating the demarcation point, for a more efficient overall installation. The installer simply removes a length of the EZ-Bend drop cable’s outer jacket to expose the InvisiLight fiber inside, then uses the existing patented InvisiLight installation process to reach a wall outlet or wall mount ONT.  

To terminate and connect the fiber to a desktop ONT, an installer can use the SlimBox Wall Plate. This discreet new wall plate serves as an indoor wall-mounted fiber termination point for up to two factory or field-connectorized drops or spliced pigtails.  It is compatible with common wall electrical boxes and offers flexible fiber routing options with access ports on the top, bottom and through the back of the module.

The new 80×80 (mm) Module is a 70% smaller version of the popular InvisiLight adapter module. It can hold a new smaller spool with up to 40 meters of fiber with a variety of spool options. OFS also supports a range of shuttered adapters. The new module is offered as part of a complete kit for the InvisiLight ILU Solutions.

The InvisiLight Drop Solution, SlimBox Wall Plate and 80 x 80 InvisiLight Module are being presented at the OFS booth, 306, at  FTTH Connect conference June 13 -15, Gaylord Opryland, Nashville, Tennessee.
