Megladon Announces New Product Release of Full CWDM, DWDM and Splitter Line with Angle Polished HLC® ScratchGuard(TM) Connections

Austin, Texas, October 2, 2009 - Megladon Manufacturing Group adds to their durable fiber optic product line for the CATV and video transmission market. Megladon now offers CWDM, DWDM, coupler and splitter products terminated with angle polished HLC connections. This completes a suite of products that includes all passive fiber optic products from the Node Tail, WDM or coupler inside the node to the WDM , coupler, patchcords, trunk cables and patch panels in the head end. The end to end solution allows customers to mate matched connectors and achieve the highest possible performance.

With the growing video on demand and streaming video content on the web, a need arises for high quality fiber optic products capable of withstanding this trend. Industry leaders and providers are having to transition into a more competent network infrastructure to conform to the now industry standard of high performance fiber optic networks.

The SCRATCHGUARD(TM) Fiber Optic DWDM, CWDM, coupler and splitter (by Megladon Manufacturing Group) is a critical step forward in quality. The fiber optic connector is a crucial component and the "gateway to the fiber optic cabling network". Damage to the connector due to repeated use has been the biggest problem for network managers, until now. The patented SCRATCHGUARD(TM) Fiber Optic terminations have virtually eliminated the problem.

Megladon's SM APC HLC SCRATCHGUARD terminations are ideally equipped for network installers that are utilizing high speed video networks. The HLC technology provides mating surface durability and low loss; paired with an Angle Polish Connector we now have a product that significantly reduces reflection, cutting down on interruptions in any given network.

The CWDM and DWDM products are manufactured in a variety of standard and custom configurations including hybrids for the more complex CATV networks. Standard lead times are 2-3 weeks and most customers experience a 20% - 30% cost reduction. The value proposition includes both front end savings and back end reliability making the switch to Megladon products and easy decision.

"We have successfully married the HLC technology with high end passive products to protect the integrity and performance of these devices," said John Culbert, President of Megladon. "These are business critical parts of a fiber optic network. Why wouldn't you want to maximize their lifespan and reliability? The value proposition we offer saves our customers a fortune from implementation to long term maintenance".
