March 10, 2009--3M Communication Markets Division's Quick Connect System 2810 is designed as a tool-less copper block for OSP connections in the embedded plant, enabling deployment of VDSL2 into copper twisted-pair cable. This system enables high-speed Internet services, such as data access, video-on-demand, and video conferencing, over existing copper plant.

March 10, 2009--3M Communication Markets Division's Quick Connect System 2810 is designed as a tool-less copper block for OSP connections in the embedded plant, enabling deployment of VDSL2 into copper twisted-pair cable. This system enables high-speed Internet services, such as data access, video-on-demand, and video conferencing, over existing copper plant.

The QCS 2810 is especially suited for building entrance terminals (BET/PET), network interface devices (NIDs), cable terminals and drops (buried, pedestal, strand or DP mount), cross-connect cabinets, and remote terminals.

Featuring Category 5e performance, the RoHS-compliant QCS 2810 system is designed to provide high-speed data transmission exceeding VDSL2 frequencies. It is available in models and frames for a variety of applications, including two field cable termination options and a pre-terminated option. Termination blocks are available for pre-terminated applications in a 50-pair increment or field-terminated applications in a 10-pair strip. In field-terminated applications, the block fits on standard 3M frames, and is capable of terminating cable-side either with thumb actuation or with a punch-down tool.

The QCS provides visual validation of the IDC connection, helping to assure network integrity. In addition, high-reliability gel encapsulation protects against moisture and corrosion and is designed to remain in place after multiple wire insertions.
