Corning Cable System demos OptiTect Local Convergence Cabinet at OSP Expo

AUGUST 30, 2007 -- The OptiTect Local Convergence Cabinet, LS Series is ideal for customers looking for higher density, flexibility, and scalability, say Corning representatives. The new cabinet will be available in scalable sizes up to 864 fibers.

AUGUST 30, 2007 -- Corning Cable Systems (search for Corning Cable Systems), part of Corning Inc.'s telecommunications segment, is highlighting the latest addition to its OptiTect Cabinet family-- the OptiTect Local Convergence Cabinet, LS Series--this week at the 2007 OSP Expo in San Jose, CA.

With the continued rise of FTTx (search for FTTx) deployments, there is an increasing demand for equipment that meet the unique requirements of these networks. The OptiTect Local Convergence Cabinet, LS Series is ideal for customers looking for higher density, flexibility, and scalability, say Corning representatives. The new cabinet will be available in scalable sizes up to 864 fibers.

The company claims the LS Series Cabinet contains best-in-class fiber management with an innovative method of splitter module loading and parking. Its jumper routing and slack storage allow FTTx providers to install cabinets quickly and easily on day one, as well as maintain fiber organization and protection throughout the life of the network, say Corning representatives.

The OptiTect Local Convergence Cabinet, LS Series features "pass-through" patch panels for commercial services or customers who require dedicated fibers that bypass optical splitters. The cabinet allows for multiple feeder and distribution cables for added flexibility in network deployment. It also features a replaceable shell; if a deployed cabinet sustains exterior damage, the shell can be easily replaced without having to interrupt services and install a new cabinet, saving time and money, explains the company.

The LS Series Cabinet features what the company claims is a revolutionary splitter module design. The new modules, which are approximately 40% smaller than traditional modules, are more compact and robust to meet the requirements of even the harshest installation environments, says Corning Cable Systems. The new splitter modules are also backwards-compatible with other OptiTect Cabinet designs.
