AFL touts new closure for FTTH applications

JANUARY 18, 2008 -- AFL Telecomunications' LG-350-AC sealed dome closure is designed for aerial or underground drop access applications where a sealed closure is required but space is limited.

JANUARY 18, 2008 -- AFL Telecommunications (search for AFL Telecommunications) has introduced its new LG-350-AC sealed dome closure, which is designed for aerial or underground drop access applications where a sealed closure is required but space is limited. Over 25% smaller than the field-proven LG-350, the new closure is ideal for small hand-hole applications such as fiber-to-the-home (search for FTTH), say company representatives.

The LG-350-AC provides access for up to 12 drops and up to 72 single fused splices in a butt splice configuration. It supports standard loose tube, outside plant ribbon, and Uniflex fiber-optic cables in both dielectric and armored configurations. AFL says installation and re-entry is easy and only requires common hand tools. In addition, the LG-350-AC is fully sealed to protect fiber and splices, ensuring longevity.

Designed and tested to Telcordia GR-771 requirements, the closure is also RUS-listed.
