Press release date: June 23, 2014

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - FTTH Conference, Booth 401 - OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fiber optic network products and solutions, introduces three new products to its broad FOX Solution® Home and Business portfolio that enable deployment of fiber to and into the home or business. Designed and manufactured by OFS, these components continue to reinforce OFS as a trusted solutions business partner.

OFS announces the FDH64, a new 64 fiber distribution hub for the fast growing multiple dwelling unit (MDU) market. The compact FDH64 easily connects fiber optic building cables with OFS' direct connect low loss splitters through a pivoting patch panel, helping to save space while easing fiber management and provisioning.

The new EZ-Bend® Toneable drop assemblies announced today build on the success of OFS' EZ- Bend ruggedized 4.8 mm drop cable.  The plug and play factory terminated cables feature EZ-Bend fiber with a ruggedized 4.8mm jacket, enabling the cable to be routed from the outside into the home or building and stapled around corners.  The new integrated toning wire allows for easy location detection.  With over half a million of customers connected by this technology, EZ-Bend cables greatly simplify installations with reliable connections to the home or MDU.

PowerGuide® DT All-Dielectric, Self-Supporting (ADSS) cable, also announced today, expands the span length range of OFS' popular PowerGuide DT ShortSpan gel-free ADSS cable.  As a gel-free design, PowerGuide DT ADSS cable is up to 15% lighter than OFS' gel-filled designs and can provide significant time savings during cable prep.   PowerGuide DT cable is available with OFS' award-winning AllWave® ZWP family of single-mode fibers.

"OFS continues to innovate and develop its FOX Solution Home and Business portfolio, being responsive to customer needs and supporting them with complete solutions," says Pierre Marty, Vice President Global Marketing and Sales for OFS.

The FDH64, EZ-Bend Toneable assemblies, and PowerGuide GT ShortSpan gel-free ADSS cable will be presented along with the FOX Solution Home and Business portfolio at the FTTH Conference, OFS booth number 401, held in Fort Lauderdale, June 23-25.
