September 17, 2008 -- ADC will be showcasing space-saving additions to its OmniReach FTTP portfolio, including its DLX Fiber Optic Connector System, Low Profile Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH), and FDH in pedestal, at the 2008 FTTH Conference & Expo, taking place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 21-25.
"Service providers want flexibility, reliability and speed in any build-out, and they need space-saving products, particularly with the increase in Multiple Dwelling Unit buildouts," offers Jack Field, VP of product management for ADC's global connectivity group. "ADC is known for working with service providers to provide solutions that accelerate network construction and deployment. Our OmniReach FTTP portfolio helps network planners build complete solutions for any application in the least amount of time and at the lowest possible cost."
Designed for outside plant (OSP) drop applications and multiple dwelling unit (MDU) environments where space is at a premium, ADC bills its DLX Fiber Optic Connector System as a plug-and-play solution that uses minimal space for connecting fiber drop cables between terminals at the street and at residences.
Unlike legacy hardened connector systems, the DLX connector can be used in smaller enclosures and multi-port terminals, which reduces the space required on poles, in hand holes and in optical terminal networks. The DLX connectors require smaller holes in walls for cable drops, which make them ideal for less intrusive routing.
At the FTTH Conference, ADC will also debut new additions to its Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) product line: FDH cabinets ideal for MDU and rural fiber network deployments. At less than eight inches deep, ADC's Low Profile FDH is designed for MDUs that typically have tight areas and limited wall space. The cabinet is configured for ADC's Rapid Fiber System for ease and speed of installation by service providers.
For growing rural fiber network deployments, ADC will also feature its new FDH in a pedestal product, which offers a smaller distribution count and lower upfront costs required for typical phased rural developments.
"ADC's comprehensive OmniReach FTTP suite of solutions enable service providers to move the idea of fiber networks to an attainable reality–no matter the environment," concludes Field.
