OFS Fitel, LLC Key Developments

OFS Expands All Dry Cable Solution Into Microcable Product Line

OFS expands its totally dry cable solution into a new microcable product line. OFS' totally dry MiDia® Dry FX microcable can help reduce fibre cable installation costs and improve safety and productivity in several ways. Cable preparation is streamlined since the fibres emerge from their buffer tubes ready for fusion splicing or optical testing, eliminating the need for cleaning products and leaving the work area and tools safer and cleaner. This entirely dry cable technology replaces the gel-based filling and flooding compounds traditionally used to prevent the spread of water in outside plant cables. MiDia Dry FX microcable is the latest innovation in OFS' extensive line of totally dry outside plant cable products, building upon OFS' expertise in the development and expansion of dry cable technology. MiDia Dry FX is currently available in three constructions containing up to 144 fibres and comes standard with OFS' bend insensitive AllWave® + fibre.

OFS Announces Launch of its New LC Crimp

OFS announced the launch of its new LC Crimp and Cleave connectivity solution for Industrial Networks. The LC Crimp and Cleave Connector takes advantage of the advanced optical and mechanical properties of HCS (Hard Clad Silica) and Graded Index HCS optical fibers, attaching to the cable through mechanical means rather than traditional epoxy/polish methods. Fast (100 Mb/sec) and Gigabit Ethernet (1,000 Mb/sec) data rates in industrial networks demand higher bandwidth and real-time, low-latency communications. The increasing use of intelligent electronic devices, utility-grade rugged Internet Protocol routers, and Ethernet switches is driving IP-based communications on the production floor and new demands in factory automation and industrial networking applications. A high bandwidth, rugged, and reliable cabling solution is indispensable for the growing demand in Industrial Networking applications as data rates in industrial settings grow. OFS' GiHCS optical fiber in a Low Smoke Zero Halogen cable construction with easy-to-use Crimp and Cleave LC connectors allow technicians an easy-to-learn connector installation for harsh environments.

City of Sandy Uses OFS Professional Services to Build FTTH Using OFS FOX Solution(R) Home and Business

OFS and the City of Sandy announced a fully underground Fiber to the Home (FTTH) network build using OFS' Professional Services to bring super high speed connectivity to businesses, institutions, and residents throughout the community of 10,000 citizens near Portland, Oregon. The City of Sandy serves as the gateway to Mt. Hood and several recreation opportunities that the area offers. The City has been operating an Internet Service Provider (ISP), known as SandyNet, for the past 10 years using a combination of fiber access for businesses, WiFi and resold DSL. OFS' Professional Services assembled a complete team of business partners to create a complete FTTH outside plant network for the City. OFS provided an efficient network design using OFS' FOX Solution for Home and Business that met the City's budget by reducing labor and material while providing ultra-high speed network capabilities. The OFS team also arranged financing with a business partner to help the City with a flexible payment schedule that could be balanced with expected revenue streams. In continuing the network roll-out process, OFS also developed and provided growth options for the network to quickly adapt to future demand.
