Webinar: New MPO Multi-Fiber Connectors at the Tower – New Test Requirements for Fiber Inspection

The use of MPO (Multi-Fiber Push on) Connectors is growing in today’s Wireless networks. 5G is driving this change by requiring more bandwidth and fibers throughout the Mobility network. Traditional Fiber architectures include simplex and/or duplex Fiber connectors, these new MPO connectors present new and unique challenges to installation and maintenance at the Tower. This session will review the emergence of these new connectors, their place in 5G network architecture, new test requirements and challenges presented.

AFL rolls out OFI-BIPMe optical fiber identifier

AFL has unveiled its OFI-BIPMe, an optical fiber identifier technicians can use to determine if a fiber is live, the transmission direction, and the relative core power.
The OFI-BIPMe is a cousin to the previously introduced OFI-BIPM. It offers a lower price point for applications that do not require advanced PON functions such as the capability to detect ONTs.

Legrand unveils cassette-less fiber interconnect system

At the 2021 BICSI Fall Conference (Aug. 22 – 26) in Las Vegas, Legrand unveiled its latest fiber technology advancement, the Infinium acclAIM Fiber Solution platform.
As part of Legrand’s larger fiber offering, the company contends the Infinium accIAIM Fiber interconnect platform “redefines fiber connectivity by replacing pre-terminated cassette-based solutions with direct connections, to deliver the lowest insertion loss available on the market.”
