Press Releases

This week, at the NGON & DCI 2018 event in Nice, France, Acacia Communications announced general availability of their new high-speed coherent optical modules for ‘ZR’ applications. The new CFP and CFP2 pluggable modules are designed to meet the growing need for capacity in network access and edge applications.

The ZR specification supports the unamplified transmission over distances greater than 40km, typically out to 80km and sometimes beyond over singlemode fibre - to address demands for growing capacity in network access, edge, and enterprise campus applications.

Sterlite Tech launched four new products spanning fronthaul and fibre to the home (FTTH) network technologies at this year’s ANGA COM in Cologne, with the unveiling of the Airblown Micro cable; Micro cable - 4mm; Micro Bullet Series Cable; and the Riser Cable.

ATX Networks has launched GigaWave, a next-generation digital optical gateway platform that is designed to allow cable operators to expand the capacity of fibre access links between head ends/hubs and outside plant facilities in a ‘pay-as-you-grow’ model.

Emtelle has added FS:Detect to its product range in order to provide an integrated kit designed to pinpoint damage and deliver error-free microduct selection in fibre networks.

Developed by New Zealand-based FiComms, the FiSpy kit – which was showcased for the first time at this year’s ANGA COM conference and exhibition in Cologne – consists of two complementary hand tools.

Panduit has made available its new Net-Verse Cabinets with a flexible design for applications that require scalability, security and cost efficiency in on premises and colocation/cloud data centre or enterprise deployments.

Complimenting the company’s line of configurable and energy efficient Net-Access Cabinets and featuring front and rear doors with a generous 69 per cent opening for optimised airflow, the Net-Verse is designed for applications that require optimal thermal management within the latest containment environments.

VIAVI Solutions has launched the T-BERD/MTS 5882 portable network tester, which covers a broad range of tests in an automated workflow. This lightweight, versatile tool can significantly reduce time in the field for technicians of all skill levels across hybrid workforces.

Attenuators are used to adapt the transmitted light power to the characteristics of the implanted receiver. The in-line fixed attenuators (OAF) offer excellent reliability and repeatable amount of light loss (attenuation) via a doped fiber. This results in wavelength independent and stable attenuation values for typical wavelength bands used in telecommunication applications (1260-1360 and 1460-1580 nm). They are suitable for optical power up to 20dBm.

Anritsu Corporation has launched a new 2x2 MIMO Measurement Software MX886200A-010 option for its MT8862A Wireless Connectivity test set, allowing it offer support for evaluating 2x2 MIMO WLAN equipment.

CommScope has upgraded its microwave antenna portfolio with the introduction of two new long-haul antenna product lines – USX and HX – into its Sentinel and ValuLine ranges. These are designed to ultimately replace the company’s existing long-haul antennas, providing next generation performance for cellular, broadcast, telecom and private networks. 

Now available from ADVA is the ConnectGuard cloud software, which is designed to deliver virtualised encryption in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Based on the company’s Ensemble Connector, ConnectGuard cloud features military-grade encryption and zero touch provisioning capabilities to allow customers to roll out secure cloud connectivity to thousands of endpoints within minutes.  The company says that ConnectGuard Cloud has been specifically engineered for this task.
