ADC (NASDAQ: ADCT – News)(www.adc.com) will highlight its fiber leadership through its expanded OmniReach® FTTX portfolio, including the Rapid Fiber System and RealFlex™ 5 Drop Cables for MDU applications, at the SUPERCOMM 2009 Conference & Exposition, booth #3726, at McCormick Place in Chicago, October 21-23.
ADC’s OmniReach Rapid Fiber System is designed specifically to assist service providers in deploying MDU optical fiber distribution networks for a variety of architectures – in less time with less total cost on a consistent, high-quality basis for every building. The Rapid Fiber System, the ultimate plug-and-play solution for delivering fast, durable and reliable service for MDUs, is available in multiple configurations to meet the unique requirements of each building.
In addition, the RealFlex 5 drop cable is ideal for demanding installation environments such as MDU buildings because it optimizes fiber performance so service providers can meet consumers’ consistent bandwidth demands. In space-challenged structures, or environments where the cable path requires sharp turns and bends, the RealFlex 5 drop cable provides increased flexibility without any sacrifice in optical performance. This connectorized cable solution ensures rapid service turn up and easy reconfigurations.
“As carriers build out fiber networks to meet the constant demand for more and more bandwidth, many are finding that a connectorized approach versus labor-intensive splicing saves time and money in the deployment of future-proof FTTP and FTTH networks,” said Jaxon Lang, vice president of Global Connectivity Solutions-Americas for ADC. “Connectorization provides a fast, easy, and reliable end-to-end, plug-and-play architecture that significantly aligns cost to revenue, grooms the network for long-term growth and enhances customer satisfaction – definite competitive advantages.”
