Siemon, one of the leading global network infrastructure specialists, has expanded its line of LightHouse advanced fibre cabling solutions in the Middle East with OptiFuse pre-polished splice-on connectors

The aim is to provide reliable and high-performance field terminations to support today?s high-speed fibre applications.

Available in simplex LC and SC multimode and simplex LC and SC UPC and APC singlemode fibre configurations, the connectors feature a factory pre-polished fibre end-face, ferrule dust cap that remains in place during termination and an internally integrated and protected splice point for superior low-loss fusion splice performance.

By eliminating the need for splice trays, splice chips and cable slack, OptiFuse splice-on connectors reduce material requirements, conserve space within fibre enclosures and deliver a 30 per cent faster installation compared to traditional fibre pigtails. They are ideal for splicing in tight spaces unable to accommodate splice trays and accessories.

?For new fibre installations, reconfigurations and repairs and restorations, achieving a balance between speed of deployment, density, cost savings and performance has long been a challenge, especially in high-cost labour markets,? said Prem Rodrigues, director for the Middle East, Africa and India/SAARC at Siemon. 

?At the same time, fibre is now being deployed in a broader range of environments and applications, including FTTx deployments in tight spaces such as multi-user work area boxes and zone units. Our new OptiFuse splice-on connectors solve all these challenges while also being a ?greener? solution with less packaging material and space requirements.?
