Air-blown fiber connectors

This family of connectors, harnesses, and tubes is designed to extend the company`s FutureFlex air-blown fiber system to the desk. The connector designs support 12- and 2-fiber ribbons that are blown to fiber termination units at workstation clusters or to individual workstation wall plates. They extend the air-blown fiber technology to horizontal systems using zone or centralized network architecture topologies. In a 12-fiber ribbon MPO configuration, bundles of three 4-fiber ribbons encased in a special sheath are blown in a splice-free, stress-free run from the computer room to termination units, and the connectors are installed on location. In a 2-fiber CNA configuration, air-blown fiber tube cells are routed to each workstation.
