Norcross, Georgia – October 9, 2019 – OFS, a leading innovator of fiber optic products, announced today that three of its fiber optic solutions have been named as among the best in the industry by the 2019 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards. OFS was recognized as a Gold Level honoree for its R-Pack Rollable Ribbon Backbone Cable, AccuTube+ Rollable Ribbon Cable, and InvisiLight Solutions.
“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate OFS on their Gold-level honoree status,” said Cabling Installation & Maintenance’s Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin. “This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most original and innovative products in the industry.”
Patrice Dubois, OFS President and CEO, stated, “We appreciate this recognition of our products by the 2019 Innovators Awards Program. These solutions reflect our company’s ongoing commitment to developing industry-leading fiber optic innovations that meet the needs and expectations of our customers while also positively affecting the lives of end users around the globe.”
As bandwidth demands continue to explode, data center and system operators need cabling solutions that can provide greater fiber density in limited space. Specifically designed to offer the highest density possible relative to their size, the R-Pack Rollable Ribbon Backbone Cable and AccuTube+ Rollable Ribbon Cable offer the benefits of fiber ribbons and loose fibers in one cable.
The resulting cables are ultra dense yet require less space than other solutions, helping installers to double the fiber density of existing pathways when compared to standard indoor cable designs.
The InvisiLight Optical Solutions for Home and Business help service providers to offer 100X faster speeds for the Internet. The InvisiLight Indoor Living Unit (ILU) Solution enables fast, easy-to-install, and almost invisible fiber drop connections for ILUs or fiber-to-the-desk (FTTD) services. The InvisiLight Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) Solution uses the same technology to make optical fiber readily available to each resident or tenant in a multi-unit building. In this way, these solutions can help to ensure reliable, ultra-high-speed internet and other services while significantly helping to improve the consumer experience, reduce costs, and speed installation.
The stellar third-party judging panel for the Innovators Awards included cabling and communication system specifiers, designers, integrators, and managers with vast professional experience.
