With the acquisition of TE Connectivity’s telecom, enterprise and wireless business, CommScope has significantly expanded its fibre connectivity solutions for service providers.
‘The past decade brought disruption and diversification for service providers as they faced new competition and demands from consumers,’ said Werner de Wolf, senior vice president of Service Provider Solutions, CommScope. ‘Driving fibre deeper in the network can help address the need for speed, simplicity and savings.’
Service providers are expecting more from their fibre networks and that expectation involves many areas, including speed to market, simplifying deployments and maximising savings. CommScope’s new and existing services and solutions address each of these areas.
CommScope offers innovative solutions for reducing the time and cost to roll out extensive fibre deployments for fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) networks. CommScope’s comprehensive approach revolutionises network topology in two ways:
• Allowing daisy chain service terminals, rather than star configuration, to use plug-and-play connectors, resulting in reduced labour costs and faster deployment.
• Adding pre-connectorised cables that enable faster fibre deployment and reduced amounts of cabling.
These approaches are estimated to get fibre networks deployed up to 70 per cent faster, creating major savings for operators.
