CommScope debuts NOVUX fibre portfolio
CommScope has launched a new portfolio of outside plant terminals and closures, to assist global service providers when deploying fibre networks.
CommScope said NOVUX is the only FTTH platform with "an inherently modular, end-to-end architecture that allows operators to scale and shape their networks as they evolve".
"Our NOVUX portfolio is all about giving our operator customers the highest degree of agility and flexibility in their growing fiber deployments,” said James DeCoe, VP, network connectivity, CommScope. “The new NOVUX range allows operators to maximize their network and respond quickly to changing market conditions and high-volume demand. These solutions deliver unprecedented ease of installation today, with the flexibility to ensure that the network meets tomorrow’s needs. Furthermore, CommScope offers our customers the security of a dedicated, agile global supply chain built on common platform designs and processes.”
CommScope said NOVUX deployments allowing operators to use 75% fewer components than existing solutions while delivering 50 times the number of configurations available today.
The system is designed with sustainable practices for packaging, labeling, and installation equipment, and it features class-leading innovations like CommScope’s Octopus sealing gel, which offers protection in harsh environments while allowing easy access for upgrades and regular maintenance.
The portfolio was designed with direct input from multiple network operators around the globe, with CommScope saying it "represents a step forward in fibre deployment solutions". It follows on from the firm's Fiber Optic Splice Closure, FIST Modular Splice Closure, and Multi-Service Terminals (MST).
“The demand for fiber broadband is exploding around the world,” said Jeff Heynen, vice president of broadband access and home networking, Dell’Oro Group. “Service providers are under tremendous pressure to respond to this demand in the midst of growing skilled labor shortages. To solve this problem, service providers require flexible and modular fiber terminals and enclosures that simplify the fiber distribution and installation process and also prepare their networks for both today’s and tomorrow’s optical technologies.”
