Superior Essex Announces New Fiber To The Premises (FTTP) Closures and Fiber Distribution Hub
Atlanta, GA, March 28, 2012
Superior Essex announces the expansion of its FTTP product portfolio to include a new Fiber Distribution Hub Enclosure (FDH-288) and redesigned families of Fiber Dome Closures (FDC) and Fiber In-line Closures (FIC).
The FDH-288 exhibits convenient, cost-saving features such as a swing-out adapter panel that allows easy access to both Central Office and Distribution connections and cable assemblies, and an SC adapter panel designed for incremental capacity growth that offers “pay-as-you-grow” savings to the service provider. The FDH-288 also supports in-hub splicing and the use of custom, pre-connectorized cable assemblies.
The improved FDC closures have re-enterable/re-sealable cable port systems for easier cable installation and maintenance. To reduce customer inventory carrying cost and ordering errors, each closure supports multiple configurations such as express, branch, and drop terminal.
The two new closures within the FIC closure line accommodate pre-connectorized drops. This attribute eliminates the need to splice drops during service provisioning, thus saving time and labor costs.
The ever-increasing demand of consumers for more bandwidth and the looming recommendation of the National Broadband Plan to deliver 100 Mbps to the home by 2020 has motivated broadband service providers to maximize their bandwidth potential, future-proofing their network with FTTP infrastructure.
Lindsay Allen, Vice President of Marketing at Superior Essex Communications states, “We have successfully enhanced our portfolio of fiber enclosures in response to the increasing demands of our customers. To meet these demands while containing operating costs, Superior Essex has an improved product line that provides flexible configuration, timesaving installation, and quick maintenance to deliver simple, lower cost solutions for service providers.”
