R&M Adds to Its Splice Closure Family for FTTH Networks

June 11, 2024
R&M adding the SYNO S-400HD and ZOONA STP12 makes it so the full portfolio of products for the FTTx market covers all network levels.

R&M claims that FTTH networks can be “increased further in density and expanded variably” with its new FO distribution splice closures, SYNO S Series and ZOONA STP12. These high-density models can offer two to three times the fiber capacity of standard distribution splice closures for FTTH connections.

The SYNO S-400HD works with 2,304 ribbon fiber and 384 single fiber splices. Though the SYNO S-500HD accommodates 3,456 ribbon fiber and 576 single fiber splices in a 25x70 centimeter housing.

The modular tray of the SYNO S series splice closures allows network operators to have flexibility in FTTH connections. Every tray can utilize holders for single fiber or ribbon fiber splices or splitters. On top of this, technicians can configure the splice closures on-site as required as the segmented cable entry bays have SYNO gel seals.

“This means that FTTH companies can implement all kinds of topologies and applications with a single system. You can plan the network with different cable types to suit the premises. In the future, cabling can be densified or changed quickly on demand, as the splice closures can be opened in just a few simple steps.”

The ZOONA STP12 is an outdoor splice closure with a 144 single fiber splice capacity. These splice closures are compact and are used in niches and shafts, as well as in masts and facades. The ZOONA144 can gradually expand or quickly increase the density of the FO infrastructure on the last mile to customers.

R&M considers the ZOONA to be best suited for time-critical roll-outs since technicians can prepare the splice closures for installation in minutes, without utilizing special tools or specialist training.

“The new high-density splice closures SYNO S-400HD and ZOONA STP12 round out the R&M portfolio for the FTTx market. It covers all network levels from the central office and PoP to the service area interface.”
