TE Connectivity presents Rapid fiber products for FTTH deployments

The Rapid Fiber Panel combines IFC cables with fiber panels using TE's RapidReel fiber cable spools, designed to guarantee the cable is always the right length.

TE Connectivity (NYSE: TEL) will reportedly present its new Rapid fiber portfolio at this week's FTTH Council Conference in London (February 20–21). With applications ranging from central offices and data centers, to cell sites and customer premises, the Rapid fiber products offer extensive features and benefits, the company claims.

The Rapid Fiber Panel combines IFC cables with fiber panels using TE's RapidReel fiber cable spools, designed to guarantee the cable is always the right length. The microcable terminates to a multi-fiber connector or a breakout with single fiber connectors, which enables a plug-and-play connection to the main distribution frame or other point of connection.

The Rapid Box is designed for fast deployment in a multi-dwelling unit environment. By using the RapidReel fiber spool, a Rapid Box can be installed on each floor and connected to the building distribution enclosure with the remaining length coiled in the floor box. It reduces upfront deployment costs by eliminating site survey inspections, reducing labor hours, and streamlining cable requirements.

TE Connectivity says its Rapid fiber product range ensures fast fiber-optic cable routing and easy handling by technicians and offers maximum space savings for high-density fiber applications. The company is exhibiting at the FTTH Conference this week at London's ExCeL Exhibition Centre, booth G17. In addition to the Rapid product line, TE will present its hardened connectivity products with plug-and-play fiber-optic connectors, adapters, converters, terminals and pre-connectorized cables.
