CommScope targets operators with new modular fiber-optic splice closures

Aug. 30, 2021
CommScope's new FOSC modular splice closure ensures reliability and versatility across a wide range of connectivity applications and cable types.

CommScope today announced the general availability of its Fiber Optic Splice Closure (FOSC) modular platform.

A newly introduced dome splice closure "builds on FOSC’s legacy of innovation and protection for billions of fiber-optic connections around the world," as noted by the company, by offering a new, modular seal design that leverages the company's NOVUX technology "to accommodate an unprecedented range of applications in fiber-deep installations and deployments," as stated by a company announcement.

According to CommScope:

The FOSC Modular Splice Closure is designed to speed fiber installation and facilitate the servicing and extensibility of these connections as operators build their networks of the future.

It [incorporates] a true, all-in-one closure design with a modular architecture made to simplify the planning and logistics of network expansion, while delivering unparalleled reliability.

Featuring a wrap-around mechanical seal and interchangeable base segments, the dome splice closure works with the widest range of cable types available and can even replace multiple closures.

“Our FOSC Modular Splice Closure is a breakthrough in versatility for fiber closures that will help accelerate the deployment of tomorrow’s high-speed broadband networks,” contends James DeCoe, vice president, Network Connectivity, CommScope.

DeCoe adds, “With its general availability, operators will be able to simplify their cable installations and have the peace of mind that their connections will continue to be protected as they evolve their networks.”

With a modular base composed of eight interchangeable cold-seal segments, the company says the new dome splice closure "offers unmatched protection and cable versatility while delivering easy access to individual fibers."

The closure allows cables to enter the chassis at several points—with no need for technicians to take apart and re-install the entire closure.

CommScope notes that, with the FOSC Modular Splice Closure, operators can select a single closure to cover a range of network technologies, topologies, cable types, and installation requirements for their feeder and distribution.

General availability for FOSC Modular Splice Closure is scheduled for November 2021. Learn more at
