R&M rolls out fiber optic outlets for living room.

Byline: Dubai

The Swiss cabling specialist Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) has developed a new outlet for fiber optic cabling for residential and commercial buildings: the FO splice outlet.

It allows net-work operators and homeowners to extend fiber optic broadband all the way into individual rooms, the company said in a press release.

The solution for the Swiss market focuses on the use of Internet TV, multimedia and high-capacity data transmission.

The FO splice outlet is a wall outlet with four ports and integrated splice storage for optical fibers. The ports can be fitted with two LC duplex, SC or SC-RJ connector sockets.

The R&M outlet also accommodates a standardized Cat. 5e or Cat. 6/RJ45 connection module, allowing the hybrid use of fiber optic and copper cabling providing maximum functionality in minimal space.

The splice storage unit can be mounted and opened with ease. Simple mounting shortens the overall time required for installation, the release said.

The construction ensures that the bending radius of the individual fibers does not fall below 15mm, thereby avoiding losses in the signal transmission.

With a surface of 88 by 88 millimeters, the new FO splice outlet fits in standard Swiss outlet frames. The front plate is 14 mm deep while the adapter is 34 mm. The housing has a modern de-sign.

The solution is ideal for retrofitting existing buildings, where space for additional installations is often at a premium and lean, easy-to-install systems are required, the release said.

The socket can be sealed and labeled. Colored dust caps can be employed to mark the individual ports. The adapters point down-ward to prevent any danger from laser beams.

The FO splice outlet blends well with the R&M copper and fiber optic home cabling systems already on the market.

With the FTTx and FTTH solutions from R&M, customers can modularly expand their systems for everything from Central Offices to individual homes, the company added.- TradeArabia News Service
