Corning adds fiber distribution terminal to ClearCurve line

SEPTEMBER 26, 2007 -- Corning Cable Systems has introduced its ClearCurve Fiber Distribution Terminal, a rugged, low-profile interconnect between the distribution network and indoor/outdoor drop cables for fiber-to-the-home, and specifically MDU, applications.

SEPTEMBER 26, 2007 -- Corning Cable Systems (search for Corning Cable Systems), part of Corning Inc.'s Telecommunications segment, has introduced its ClearCurve Fiber Distribution Terminal, a rugged, low-profile interconnect between the distribution network and indoor/outdoor drop cables for fiber-to-the-home, and specifically multidwelling unit (MDU), applications.

The ClearCurve Fiber Distribution Terminal takes advantage of Corning's previously announced ClearCurve fiber and cable. ClearCurve, based on proprietary nano-structure technology, enables bend-insensitive optical fiber minimal attenuation loss at a minimum bend radius of 5 mm. The terminal, available with either 12 or 24 ports in a single low-profile footprint, accepts Corning's ClearCurve drop cables and field-installable connectors.

The terminal can be wall or pole mounted and is designed for indoor and outdoor applications. Its design is targeted at quick and easy installation, with simple fiber routing and preconnectorized inputs. The ClearCurve Fiber Distribution Terminal accepts preconnectorized or blunt-end drop cable through individually sealed ports, allowing additional drops to be added without disturbing existing customers. Microduct can be routed directly behind the terminal or within an optional skit, eliminating the additional cost and space for transition NEMA boxes.

A small footprint and removable cover minimize the wall space required to mount the ClearCurve Fiber Distribution Terminal, and a detachable mounting plate installs onto the wall without the terminal to eliminate the risk of damaging the factory-terminated cable during installation. The tamper-proof, removable cover locks the terminal and hides the mounting hardware to prevent unauthorized removal.
