Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cables: Loose Tube Optic Outside Plant Cable is right for any outside plant application. Our loose tube cable constructions are built to withstand adverse environments and provide the maximum fiber protection. They can be installed in ducts, direct buried and aerial/lashed installations for trunk and fiber to the premise applications. Our outside plant products conform to TIA/EIA, ICEA, Telcordia and RUS standards. 

Tight Buffer Cables: Tight Buffered Fiber Optic is right for any premise application. Our 900ųm tight buffer premise cable constructions are built to withstand continuous handling as well as difficult routing, both of which are typical in the premise environment. Ideal for both backbone and horizontal applications, 900ųm premise cables allow for the direct termination of connectors, saving installation time and reducing connectorization costs. ATS offers a complete line of totally dry outside plant (OSP) cables. By eliminating messy gels and filling compounds the handling and installation process is greatly streamlined, resulting in higher efficiencies. These cables are available in both loose tube or ribbon structures with dielectric and metallic sheath options.

Indoor Outdoor Cables: Fiber Optic Indoor/Outdoor Cables are designed to meet both the stringent environmental requirements typical of outside plant cable AND the flammability requirements of premise applications. Ideal for applications that span indoor and outdoor environments, Indoor/outdoor cable can eliminate the need for building entryway splice points, saving both time and money.  Outdoor/Indoor cables combine the flame resistance and safety features of an indoor riser or plenum cable with the durability that is critical for OSP use. The result is a unique, dual-purpose cable that can save time and money by allowing OSP applications to flow seamlessly indoors, using a single cable and no splices.

Interconnect Fiber Optic Cables: Interconnect Cables can be used for horizontal fiber-to-the-desk (FTTD) cabling or can be terminated into pigtails and patchcords for use in data centers or wiring closets. Both tight buffer and ribbon-style constructions are compatible with industry-standard connectors.

Drop Cable
OFS offers compact, durable, and self-supporting drop cables in a completely dry construction. Reliable and cost-effective for the last link in the optical network, they are the ideal solution for self-supporting aerial, direct buried, and duct FTTx drop installations.

FTTx Cable
OFS offers leading-edge optical cables for fiber to the home, businesses, and multiple dwelling unit deployments, that are key components of our comprehensive Access ADVANTAGE™ System.

Central Tube Cable
OFS was the first optical cable manufacturer to introduce the central tube cable design, offering easy fiber access and maximum fiber density. The central tubes provide the cables with excellent optical, mechanical and environmental performance, making them suitable for a wide variety of deployments, including underground conduit and rugged direct buried applications.

Microcables and Blown Fiber Units
These microfiber fiber cables are revolutionary designs that increase the cost-effectiveness and range of deployment options for your network. These small, lightweight, and flexible fiber units help save time and money with fast and reliable microduct installation. Since fiber can be deployed only as needed, you enjoy better cost control, and can build "future-proof" networks.

Optical Ribbon
OFS has led the industry in optical fiber ribbon technology by being the first to introduce fiber ribbons in 1975, as well as the first to introduce UV-curable acrylate material ribbons in 1989. Today's optical ribbon cables hold up to 24 colored optical fibers in a planar array, providing a high fiber density unit for use in fiber optic cabling or routing inside electronic equipment.

Premises Cable
Our premises fiber optic cables have a 20-year proven record. The premises distribution cable is ideal for use in systems in the central office, frame cabling environment, or FTTx. These cables are the first and only totally dry (greaseless), waterproof, tight buffered fiber optic indoor/outdoor cable in the industry, developed specifically to go from a manhole splice to the Central Office (CO) frame or from frame to frame between buildings. Our optical cordage offers outstanding performance and easy connectivity. All of our premises cable designs are fully qualified to industrially accepted specifications.

Transition Networks Fiber Optic Media Converters-Transition Networks-10/100/1000 media converter that converts the electrical signal of a 10/100/1000 Ethernet signal from copper to fiber. This solution will offer a low-cost integration option for network managers who want to migrate from 10/100 networks to Gigabit Ethernet. Gigabit only switches can now be connected to 10/100 networks without the need to upgrade the 10/100 side, allowing network managers to add new equipment gradually. Fiber interface runs at 1000Base speeds, which enables users to connect Gigabit ports on fiber switches. Fiber connectivity options include SX optics and LX dual fiber with distances up to 125km or single fiber up to 40km. In addition to the standard 220 meters with standard SX optics, Transition Networks also offers a proprietary solution that will allow users to transmit up to 2km over multimode fiber (62.5/125µm) (xGFEB1024-100

Allied Telesyn Fiber Optic Media Converters - Coming soon-

How a fiber optic media converter works: In recent years it has become apparent that fiber-optics are steadily replacing copper wire as an appropriate means of communication signal transmission. They span the long distances between local phone systems as well as providing the backbone for many network systems. Other system users include cable television services, university campuses, office buildings, industrial plants, and electric utility companies. This is an overview of fiber-optic technology, telecommunication applications, fiber-optic advantages and disadvantages, and fiber-optic economics.

A fiber-optic system is similar to the copper wire system that fiber-optics is replacing. The difference is that fiber-optics use light pulses to transmit information down fiber lines instead of using electronic pulses to transmit information down copper lines. Looking at the components in a fiber-optic chain will give a better understanding of how the system works in conjunction with wire based systems.

At one end of the system is a transmitter. This is the place of origin for information coming on to fiber-optic lines. The transmitter accepts coded electronic pulse information coming from copper wire. It then processes and translates that information into equivalently coded light pulses. A light-emitting diode (LED) or an injection-laser diode (ILD) can be used for generating the light pulses. Using a lens, the light pulses are funneled into the fiber-optic medium where they transmit themselves down the line.Light pulses move easily down the fiber-optic line because of a principle known as total internal reflection. "This principle of total internal reflection states that when the angle of incidence exceeds a critical value, light cannot get out of the glass; instead, the light bounces back in. When this principle is applied to the construction of the fiber-optic strand, it is possible to transmit information down fiber lines in the form of light pulses.There are generally five elements that make up the construction of a fiber-optic strand, or cable: the optic core, optic cladding, a buffer material, a strength material and the outer jacket (Fig. 1). The optic core is the light carrying element at the center of the optical fiber. It is commonly made from a combination of silica and germania. Surrounding the core is the optic cladding made of pure silica . It is this combination that makes the principle of total internal reflection possible. The difference in materials used in the making of the core and the cladding creates an extremely reflective surface at the point in which they interface. Light pulses entering the fiber core reflect off the core/cladding interface and thus remain within the core as they move down the line.
