June 8, 2004 Hickory, NC--Corning Cable Systems is launching the OptiSheath Advantage Terminal, designed for fast, reliable connection of subscribers in emerging optical access networks, such as fiber to the business and fiber to the home.
The OptiSheath Advantage Terminal allows interconnection of drop cables without the need to re-enter the terminal. Holding up to 12 OptiFit advantage drop cable assemblies, the terminal is able to accommodate the high number of drops essential in deploying next-generation networks. The ability to connect subscribers without re-entry into the terminal allows time savings of up to 50% compared with traditional installation methods.
Additionally, the OptiSheath Advantage Terminal also provides a safe environment for operators to deploy multiple passive devices - such as couplers/splitters and WDMs - in the outside plant environment, providing the flexibility to reconfigure or add upon those devices in the future with minimal complexity and cost. The terminal also provides easy-access network test points for verifying and troubleshooting fiber connections and optical performance.
The OptiSheath Advantage Terminal will be featured in the Corning Cable Systems booth (#1029) at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, June 15-18, in Orlando, FL.
