NOVEMBER 12, 2007 -- Tyco Electronics (search for Tyco) has reached agreement with Huber+Suhner (search for Huber+Suhner) to become an alternative source for ODC fiber-optic connector cable assemblies. The ODC connector and supporting optical cable is gaining popularity in 3G, 4G, and WiMax base station remote radios and fiber-to-the-antenna applications.

With this agreement, Tyco Electronics is able to expand the ODC connector brand globally. Tyco Electronics and the Huber+Suhner Group will work together to expand the ODC product line and applications.

The ODC product range incorporates precision-machined rugged brass housings with two or four optical terminations in both singlemode and multimode fiber. The environmentally sealed, fixed and free connectors are supported by a range of crush resistant, high-tensile-strength "tactical" style cables.

Tyco Electronics will commence supply of ODC cable assemblies January 2008, following compatibility and interoperability qualification with HUBER+SUHNER.
