OFS Expands Rollable Ribbon Solution to Include Connectorized Assemblies
Benefits of rollable ribbon at similar cost to flat-ribbon breakouts
Fiber Connect, Booth 1401, Orlando, Florida, June 3, 2019 - OFS is pleased to announce the expansion of its Rollable Ribbon Cable Solution to include connectorized assemblies.
Rollable ribbon fiber optic cables are one of the most exciting developments in outside plant (OSP) cabling technology in years. These cables can help users achieve significant time and cost savings using mass fusion splicing while also doubling their fiber density in a given duct size compared to traditional flat ribbon cable designs. Each OFS rollable ribbon within a cable features 12 individual optical fibers that are partially bonded to each other at predetermined points. These ribbons can be “rolled” into a flexible and compact bundle that offers the added benefit of improved fiber routing and handling in closure preparation.
The Rollable Ribbon Connectorized Assembly offers all the benefits of rollable ribbon cable including small outer diameter, tight bend radius and flexibility with termination counts of 24 – 864 fibers with the option of MPO, LC or SC connectors. The compact diameter of the OFS breakout design enables easy installation and pulling through cable trays. Breakout lengths are staggered for general use or customized for specific frame installation and one hundred percent factory tested.
This assembly will also be on display at the 2019 Fiber Connect Expo at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, in Orlando, Florida, on June 3-5, 2019. Please contact your local OFS representative for additional information.
