FTTH Connect 2016, Booth 306, Nashville, Tennessee, June 8, 2016 – OFS, a leading manufacturer of innovative fiber optic network products, announces new products for Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) applications, including the SlimBox™ 64, 24 and 12-fiber Wall Mount Modules and two significant improvements to the InvisiLight® MDU Solution.
Service providers are often allotted small spaces for their equipment in crowded MDU telecommunication closets. For these applications, OFS is introducing modular and compact additions to the SlimBox family of enclosures.
The SlimBox 64, 24, and 12-fiber Wall Mount Modules are ideal building entry interconnect devices and can also be used for in-building distribution. All have the capability of housing splices from incoming cables and connecting to building distribution cables, with or without splitters. They are available in a variety of different configurations, including a choice of connector types, and with or without adapters and splitters.
For fiber deployments up risers and in hallways, the popular InvisiLight MDU Solution has two new upgrades – first, the InvisiLight Multifiber Unit has been upgraded to a cord with strength elements and carries both the OFNR (US) and FT-4 (Canada) fire ratings. In addition, a new compact Point of Entry (POE) module, the transition point between the InvisiLight Multifiber Cord installed in the hallway and the single fiber InvisiLight ILU Solution inside the residential living unit, is 40% smaller in size than the current POE version. This reduced size makes the module even less visible while remaining easy to install and improves the aesthetics of the fiber entering the module.
The SlimBox 64, 24 and 12-fiber Wall Mount Modules and the improved InvisiLight MDU Solution are being presented at FTTH Connect conference June 13 -15, Gaylord Opryland, Nashville, Tennessee, OFS booth 306.
