Norcross, GA – September 13, 2016 - OFS, a leading-edge designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fiber-optic network solutions, announced today that the Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2016 Innovators Awards Program has honored OFS's LaserWave FLEX WideBand Multimode Optical Fiber with a Silver-level award.

Presented annually, the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards Program reviews and recognizes the most innovative applications of cabling and communications technology products and systems in the structured cabling industry.

Dr. Timothy F. Murray, CEO and Chairman of OFS, stated, “OFS appreciates this recognition of our product by the 2016 Innovators Awards Program. The LaserWave FLEX WideBand Multimode Fiber reflects our company’s ongoing commitment to
developing industry-leading fiber optic innovations that exceed the needs and expectations of our customers while also positively affecting the lives of end users around the globe.”

Alan Bergstein, publisher of Cabling Installation & Maintenance, said, “This prestigious program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to showcase and honor innovation within the structured cabling industry. Our 2016 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact today.”

Designed to meet the demands of today’s OM4 networks, LaserWave FLEX WideBand Multimode Fiber uses short wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) to allow multiple lanes of traffic over the same strand of optical fiber. With this ability, this new fiber may
increase transmission capacity by up to 400 percent. This capability can help service providers to gain greater capacity and faster speeds using less fiber, and can help save them time and money while reducing cable congestion.
