September 26, 2007 -- OFS has introduced its V-Linx Spool & Play Solution, designed for fiber-to-the-Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) deployments.

Developed as a part of the company's Access Advantage FTTH System, the new product can speed and simplify fiber installation in typical low, medium, or high-rise MDUs, reducing both labor costs and used space by up to fifty percent, contends the company.

"The V-Linx Solution can help our customers deploy a full spectrum bend-optimized optical path to each MDU living unit faster, at a lower total cost, with less inventory," comments Bill Kloss, NAR President, Cable, Connectivity and FTTX, at OFS. "This solution demonstrates that OFS is committed to helping improve the ROI of MDU fiber deployments for carriers and deployments of all sizes."

According to the company, the V-Linx Solution includes four simple components that can flexibly adapt to nearly any MDU environment in both existing and new buildings; all components can be quickly deployed and connected in a plug-and-play manner. The components are as follows: the EZ-Plug FDH; EZ-Spool Combiner; EZ-Spool Terminal; and EZ-Reach Drop assemblies.

All V-Linx components support the company's AllWave FLEX bend-optimized singlemode ZWP fiber.

The V-Linx Solution will be showcased at the FTTH Conference 2007 in Orlando, Florida, September 30 - October 3.
