Switzerland-based Reichle & De-Massari AG (R&M) has announced that it is now offering its fiber to the home (FTTH) product lines and consulting services in North America, where it hopes to have similar success as it has found in Europe, South America, and Asia.

Key elements of the North American lineup, according to R&M, include:

  • The PRIME ODF dense cabling platform for optical distribution frames (ODFs). PRIME ODF modules can connect up to 5,376 optical fibers in an ODF rack.
  • ODF-SCM combines the ODF with the Single Circuit Management System (SCM) distribution line for central offices. The modular system includes SCM cassettes and ODF patch, splitter, and CWDM inserts.
  • The R&M Raceway System is made from PC/ABS plastic, which is environmentally friendly, halogen-free, shatter-proof, light-resistant, and flame-retardant. Technicians can install the raceway system place directly using snap-in connections rather than special tools.
  • The SNYO dome closure is available in three models (288F, 576F, and 1,152F) and accommodates single or rollable fiber cables. The SYNO dome closure features a modular system that eliminates the need to thread fiber-optic cables through the closure base or seal shrink tubes. The integrated blocks made from R&M's SYNO gel seal the splice closure.
  • The ZOONA outside plant closures are designed to speed roll outs, require less space, and save costs. The line can accommodate underground and above-ground requirements.
  • The Polaris-box family provides fiber-optic terminations for indoor or outdoor applications, from single-family homes to multitenant buildings. They support patch, splice, and splitter configurations as well as individual assembly.
  • Precon Networks, based on MPO/SC or SN harsh connectors, enable pre-connectorized networks from the output of the OLT port to the customer's home without a single splice, R&M asserts.

"R&M is proud to offer its high-end fiber-optic portfolio and international expertise in FTTH projects to North America, to help telecommunications customers meet demand for virtually unlimited bandwidth in the digital era," said Paulo Campos, executive VP Americas and president of R&M USA Inc. "In addition to products that provide end-to-end connectivity between the central office and the premises, R&M offers professional services with international success helping customers design and implement FTTH solutions."
