OFS Access Advantage System supports 20km triple play fiber to the premises.

OFS, designer, manufacturer and supplier of leading edge fiber optic products today announced that its low-loss Access ADVANTAGE System supports voice, data, today's analog video, and advanced digital video over 20km Passive Optical Networks (PONs) in all popular configurations, including single fiber networks that place 1:32 splitters close to subscribers. This system enables lower system costs for service providers' FTTP networks.

The Access Advantage system reduces capital investment by enabling the use of lower cost active optical components for video, data, and voice services. Users of the Access ADVANTAGE system can save over $200 per subscriber by using low power to deliver high quality analog video, compared to high power analog video systems. It also provides 50% more bandwidth than conventional systems to enable low cost migration to future bandwidth demanding services such as High Definition (HD) Video Telephony, instant HD videos on demand, and HD interactive gaming.

"By lowering system loss and adding 50% more bandwidth, the superior transmission performance of the Access ADVANTAGE system extends reach, lowers cost, and supports existing applications. In addition the Access ADVANTAGE system provides a low cost upgrade path for future high bandwidth applications," said Paul Neuhart, President, Optical Fiber, Cable and Connectivity Division, OFS.

The Access ADVANTAGE system is the first end-to-end FTTP optical fiber cabling system that enables low cost for current and future PON applications, point to point, and mixed architecture networks, for analog and digital voice, data and video applications.
