OFS, a leading manufacturer of innovative fiber optic products today launches two new InvisiLight products for the Indoor Living Unit (ILU).
The InvisiLight solution portfolio from OFS is well known globally with a widely installed customer base. The single and two-fiber InvisiLight ILU Solution is designed for the residential unit and the 4, 8, 12 and 16-fiber count InvisiLight MDU Solution is deployed inside building hallways and risers. In addition, indoor/outdoor rated InvisiLight Façade Solutions, with 12 and 24-fiber counts respectively, can be installed on building facades when an indoor solution is not possible. This portfolio is well integrated with OFS’ equally diverse SlimBox™ portfolio for indoor and outdoor installations.
Today, OFS is launching two new InvisiLight ILU products, which continue providing the same benefits that InvisiLight is known for: a simple, fast, non-disruptive and almost invisible installation with a unique slack management feature when exact installation path lengths are not known. One product is a pre-connectorized wall mounted module with a dual layer spool. This module allows up to 40 meters of 900 µm OFS EZ-Bend® Cordage to be dispensed on the bottom layer, using the same InvisiLight installation process, and up to 1.5 meters of 3 mm OFS EZ-Bend cordage on the top spool layer. With this design, this product provides an easy way to connect the module to an indoor ONT. This further simplifies and quickens the current installation as it helps eliminate an optical connection. In addition, with one less connector, attenuation loss is also decreased. Additionally, this product can easily be self-installed by an end-subscriber.
The second product is the InvisiLight EZ-Hide Faceplate that installs flush to the wall, maintaining discreteness while providing a behind-the-wall concept for a safe optical connection. With this concept the optical installation remains hidden and allows for an OFS EZ-Bend Jumper to be stored inside the ½-inch deep faceplate. This product is also design compatible with the dual layer spool. The EZ-Hide Faceplate with dual layer spool can be installed during new building or home construction, when the indoor wiring phase is being completed. This product enables quicker FTx deployment than the current installation of indoor fiber, making the new home construction attractive as it will be fiber ready prior to home ownership.
