Minneapolis, MN - ADC recently showcased its new PONy Express 16 transport platform, and expanded FiberGuide and RiserGuide product family at the 2007 Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando, FL. ADC also highlighted product and service solutions that support the delivery of commercial business services by cable operators, as well as the deployment of hybrid fiber-copper networks, serving offices and data centers.
PONy Express 16
The PONy (Passive Optical Network over wavelengths) Express 16 is the first transport platform to address the bottleneck that occurs in traditional optical access networks. Using Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM), the PONy Express 16 provides cost-effective access to business parks, campuses, and multi-dwelling unit/multi-tenant units over a shared network infrastructure without sacrificing security or limiting bandwidth. Up to 16 customers can be simultaneously connected with each having up to 1Gbps of dedicated, symmetrical bandwidth.
FiberGuide and RiserGuide
ADC has expanded its comprehensive FiberGuide product family with the release of a higher-capacity 24-inch by four-inch system, doubling the network capacity and flexibility of traditional 12-inch systems. FiberGuide is a fiber management system used to protect and route fiber optic patch cords, multi-fiber cable assemblies and intra-facility fiber cable to and from fiber splice enclosures, distribution frames and fiber optic terminal devices. This comprehensive solution drives down installation time and provides easier fiber cabling deployment.
Complementing FiberGuide, ADC's RiserGuide is an on-demand cable management system designed to enable full network optimization. Bracket-like hardware devices guide fiber cables to appropriate locations or hold bundles in place for optimal organization. RiserGuide is modular and easy to install and remove. Components such as storage spools, radius limiters and cable guides can be installed anywhere on the riser, which can then be mounted within and between racks and cabinets.
Comprehensive Cable Offering
In addition to PONy Express and FiberGuide/RiserGuide, ADC highlighted its other product and service solutions that support the delivery of commercial business services by cable operators, as well as supporting the deployment of hybrid fiber-copper networks, serving offices (known as headends) and data centers. These products include RF signal management platforms, digital audio and digital video patching systems, fiber distribution products, outside plant copper and fiber, and core-router monitoring products. ADC also featured its professional services to help cable operators plan, deploy and maintain their networks for the delivery of voice, video and high-speed data services.
