The InvisiLight Solution portfolio from OFS is well rounded with the InvisiLight Drop Cable Solution to residential homes, InvisiLight MDU Solution for building hallways and the vastly popular InvisiLight ILU Solution for indoor living units. This portfolio is well integrated with the SlimBox™ branded portfolio of terminals and closures, offering a level of modularity demanded by the market.
The InvisiLight Drop Solution, virtually invisible
The InvisiLight Drop Solution offers a fast, easy, virtually invisible way to extend an OFS EZ-Bend® drop cable inside by converting it to the InvisiLight solution, to increase customer acceptance and eliminate the need for transition boxes.
The InvisiLight ILU Solution consists of a single optical fiber for fiber-in-the-home (FITH) installations
The InvisiLight MDU Solution offers virtually invisible and faster fiber optic installation than traditional fiber routing inside residential and business MDUs. This solution provides a complete in-building solution that can help accelerate the adoption of fiber optic service through faster and lower cost installation than traditional installation techniques with a virtually invisible result. These benefits, in turn, can result in higher subscriber acceptance and take rates.
The InvisiLight MDU Solution consists of a 12-fiber unit for building hallways
With the InvisiLight ILU Solution, the installer uses an innovative yet simple process to adhere a 0.9 mm diameter optical fiber into crevices along ceilings and walls or moldings and walls. In this way, the solution offers a safe, protected optical fiber link that blends seamlessly into the ILU, is virtually invisible to the eye and installed without disruption to the homeowner or décor. The InvisiLight MDU Solution helps meet the often difficult and expensive challenge of deploying fiber in hallways and between floors of existing buildings. This solution uses a fast, easy–to-install and practically invisible 12-fiber optical unit that can be surface mounted in hallways, on the exterior of each apartment or office and between floors to connect subscribers to ultra-high speed services.
The InvisiLight Facade Solution
The InvisiLight Façade Solution is offered with a twelve or twenty four fiber count indoor/outdoor rated cable, which can be installed on the face of a building or tucked behind other outdoor structures such as rain water downspouts. The two cables have a 3.0mm and 3.8mm diameter respectively and can be factory pre-terminated or connectorized on site with a fusion splice or a mechanical connector.
During installation, the cables are connected to an outdoor building terminal that is usually installed at the base of a building. From the terminal, the cable can be installed vertically on the face of the building into the attic and be connected to a distribution terminal from which EZ-Bend® cables can be fished down into living units. Alternatively, the cable can be placed along the building facade using clips to pass each living unit with compact slack loops placed outside or inside the unit. From this point, the optical fiber can easily be extracted to connect to the other InvisiLight solutions to reach the Optical Network Terminal (ONT). OFS’ class-leading EZ-Bend fiber is used in the InvisiLight Façade cable and all InvisiLight products. With its 2.5 mm bend radius, this fiber easily handles the sharp corners typically encountered when conforming the cable neatly to the building.
