Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

Optical Fiber Communication Conference & Exposition

HICKORY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 18, 2004

Corning Cable Systems, an industry-leading manufacturer of fiber optic and copper communications network infrastructure solutions, introduces the newest additions to the OptiTect(TM) Cabinet family, designed for exceptional fiber management at the Local Convergence Point (LCP) within Passive Optical Networks (PONs).

An Evolant(TM) Solutions for Access Networks product, these cabinets optimize the integration of couplers and splitters for FTTx applications. The pole- and pad-mountable OptiTect Cabinets enable incremental addition and/or replacement of connectorized coupler/splitter modules. They are designed for craft-friendly re-entry, increasing the speed of subscriber connection.

The OptiTect Premiere FDH-HDF Cabinet houses interconnection points in high-density shelves. It offers coupler modularity, supporting up to 13 1x32 modules or up to 26 1x16 modules. The Premiere FDH-HDF Cabinet features 12 discrete 36-fiber termination fields housed in sliding shelves and individual connector access within those shelves. The cabinet is 32 inches wide, 48 inches tall and 19 inches deep.

The OptiTect Advantage FDH-SE Cabinet houses interconnection points in a patch panel configuration. Like the FDH-HDF Cabinet, it supports up to 13 1x32 or up to 26 1x16 coupler modules and features discrete termination fields and individual connector access.

The existing OptiTect Classic LCC Cabinet is the most widely used cabinet for PON applications. It supports the interconnection of up to 192 distribution fibers inside the cabinet in multiple variations of coupler modules.

All cabinets feature superb jumper management for easy routing and storage of all service connection leads as well as a storage panel for unused module outputs. The cabinets are scalable for efficient subscriber growth, and they minimize the time required for coupler/splitter addition and subscriber connection.

The OptiTect FDH-SE Cabinet will be featured in the Corning booth (#3227) at the 2004 Optical Fiber Communication Conference & Exposition (OFC) in Los Angeles, Calif., Feb. 24-26.

Evolant(TM) Solutions for Evolving Networks delivers network migration, design-through-installation expertise and tip-to-tip product and service offerings for access, CATV, data center, intelligent transportation system (ITS), metropolitan, long-haul and wireless applications.
