FEBRUARY 19, 2008 -- ADC (search for ADC) says it will unveil its expanded line of OmniReach fiber-to-the-x solutions at the 2008 OFC/NFOEC Conference, held next week at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.
ADC will introduce the OmniReach 4x3 configuration MultiPort Service Terminal (MST) and the OmniReach plug-and-play WDM modules at the conference. These new FTTX offerings, along with the company's portfolio of fiber-optic network equipment, will be featured at booth #3538.
"Our new OmniReach 4x3 MST and plug-and-play WDM modules are the latest innovations in our comprehensive line of FTTX solutions," reports Jaxon Lang, vice president of global connectivity solutions americas for ADC. "As with all of our OmniReach FTTX solutions, these new products are designed to help simplify FTTP network installation, maintenance, and management and to provide increased flexibility to transition to new technologies in the future."
The company says the new OmniReach 4x3 MST continues its innovations in fiber access terminals. In providing a compact, yet technician friendly terminal, carriers can optimize installation and customer turn up expenses in the deployment of FTTP services. ADC's family of MST products incorporate hardened connector technology, providing a durable, reliable, and cost effective plug-and-play service connection in the outside plant/drop segment of the network, note company representatives.
The OmniReach plug-and-play WDM modules are designed to allow providers to deliver higher data rates and additional services to customers. CWDM and DWDM devices in ADC's plug-and-play package enable such applications as WDM-PON, dedicated Gigabit Ethernet, fiber-to-the-cell-site, FTTN node splitting, and remote DSL applications. Plug-and-play WDM modules can co-exist in traditional GPON/BPON networks to expand services provided, says the company. The modules are easy to insert and remove without affecting existing customers, and their rugged package is designed to protect delicate WDM devices from mishandling and extreme outside plant environments.
