The Microfox laser multiplexer offers fiber-in-the-loop T1 transmission from the central office to customer premises up to 45 km away. The device suits suburban and rural businesses as well as cellular-telephone antenna sites. Installing this multiplexer into a Microfox hub increases by four orders of magnitude the distance that telephone companies serve from the central office. Laser multiplexer cards and hubs are priced from $4200 and $5260, respectively.
