August 30, 2007 -- OFS announced that it has developed "a new and improved solution" for installing fiber within Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs).

The company notes that service providers often encounter cost and space barriers when installing fiber to apartment and condominium units. The company holds that its MDU solution can help to win customers faster and at a lower cost, by helping to cut installation time, space and labor costs up to 50%, while supporting in-building PON or point-to-point fiber networks to each living unit.

"The new MDU solution will provide a fully standards-compliant 'plug and play' optical path from the cable entry point to the unit, within MDUs, utilizing new cables and components featuring OFS' bend-optimized AllWave FLEX ZWP fiber," says John George, director of FTTX Solutions at OFS. "AllWave FLEX fiber enables the system to route through tight bends in MDU buildings while inconspicuously fitting in compact spaces."

The full OFS MDU solution and its components will be displayed and commercially available at the FTTH Conference in Orlando, Florida, from September 30 – October 4, 2007.
