-- Plug-and-play solutions for the central office and outside
plant help increase fiber capacity and speed service turn-ups --
TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, introduces new
passive fiber optic solutions at the 2014 FTTH Conference & Expo, held
June 23-25 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center in Florida.
Driving innovation in the central office environment, TE expands its
NG4access value-added module (VAM) portfolio to include splitter modules
with 1x32 split ratios, and dense wavelength division multiplexing
(DWDM) modules to meet 40-channel applications. For the outside plant,
TE unveils the coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) module for
use in fiber distribution hubs in 8-, 10- and 16-channel configurations.

“Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) operators face the challenges of maintaining
their competitive position in the marketplace, while simultaneously
being tasked to deliver more services over their existing fiber
infrastructure,” says David Brown, vice president and CTO of TE
Broadband Networks. “TE’s passive fiber optic solutions help mitigate
these challenges by offering easy-to-install optical components that can
be fully integrated into all areas of the FTTH network. Plug-and-play,
fiber optic solutions enable faster service turn-ups and offer a
cost-effective approach for adding fiber capacity at critical network
VAM product family is comprised of monitor, splitter, CWDM and DWDM
optical components. With one click, VAMs effortlessly install into the
NG4access universal chassis – which features ones of the highest
connection densities in the industry – for adding fiber capacity,
troubleshooting or distributing optical signals to multiple subscribers.
The newly designed splitter VAMs are available in split ratios of 1x2 up
to 1x32 configurations. In addition, higher channel count DWDM modules
have been added to the VAM portfolio and include 16-, 20- and 40-channel
CWDM modules are designed to fit in all TE fiber distribution hub
3000 cabinet sizes. The module can multiplex two or more signals with
different wavelengths in one common fiber, or separate wavelengths at
the remote location. The ruggedized cable protects from repeat handling
and extreme temperatures from minus 55 degrees C to 85 degrees C.
Factory-terminated plug-and-play SC/APC connectors ensure fast
subscriber turn-ups, saving operators time and cost. Available in 8-,
10- and 16-channel configurations, the CWDM module offers a simple way
of adding more services and bandwidth to outside plant applications.
