Corning Cable Systems OptiTect(TM) Premier Sealed LCP Enclosure Ensures Quick, Easy and Reliable Installation in the Field

HICKORY, N.C. Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, introduces the OptiTect(TM) Premier Sealed Local Convergence Point (LCP) Enclosure. The prestubbed, preconnectorized enclosure is sealed and provides protection from environmental conditions. It is designed to enable centralized splitting architectures to distribute up to 144 fibers in a sealed environment.

The feeder and distribution cables are sealed and tested in factory-controlled conditions, so no new personnel training or tools are required to ensure fast, simple and reliable installation and re-entry. The sealed enclosure is suitable for buried applications, making right-of-way and DOT issues simpler, while also minimizing neighborhoold aesthetic concerns. Additionally, the enclosure can be strand- or pole-mounted to provide even greater flexibility.

The OptiTect Premier Sealed LCP Enclosure is designed to hold to up to five 1x32 splitter modules with preterminated SC UPC or SC APC adapters. It is prestubbed with a 100-foot 12-fiber feeder cable terminated inside the enclosure to the splitter input connector panel. The enclosure is also prestubbed and sealed with a 100-foot 144-fiber distribution cable that is terminated on the distribution side of the connector field.

Preconnectorized splitter modules eliminate the need to splice during splitter installation. The splitter modules are ordered separately, allowing "pay-as-you-grow" flexibility, which minimizes initial capital spending. Additionally, there are no routing limitations, as splitter outputs can be routed to any adapter output in the connector field.

The OptiTect(TM) Premier Sealed Local Convergence Point Enclosure is part of Corning Cable Systems Evolant® Solutions.
