m2fx partners with Innogulf Solutions in Oman and UAE

m2fx is expanding its business into Oman and the United Arab Emirates through a partnership with Innogulf Solutions. 

Innogulf will provide customers with m2fx’s full product range, including its Miniflex range of pushable fibre cables. Developed to resist the toughest conditions in direct sun and long-term temperatures of 80°C, the cables are proven to reduce installation costs and increase reliability.

E-marine expands submarine cable installation fleet

E-marine, the principal provider of submarine cable installation and repair solutions in the Middle East and sub-continent region, plans to expand its fleet of cable ships in 2015, with the first ship, the CS Maram, beginning dock trials ahead of its maiden voyage this year.

Furukawa launches FitelNinja NJ001 fusion splicer

The ongoing expansion of FTTx networks worldwide calls for affordable, compact and light fusion splicers that are also robust and can safely be used in demanding environments including high, narrow or dark places both inside the home and on construction sites.  Furukawa Electric has designed the FitelNinja NJ001 fusion splicer to meet these requirements.

As robust as its predecessor the S123C, the FitelNinja is considerably smaller and lighter, with improved ease of use, portability and durability, the company claims.

OFS unveils MiDia Dry FX no-gel microcable

OFS, a developer of fibre-optic cable and connectivity products, has expanded its range of totally dry optical cables with a new microcable product line.

OFS' totally dry MiDia Dry FX microcable is based on an entirely dry cable technology, which replaces the gel-based filling and flooding compounds traditionally used to prevent the spread of water in outside plant cables.

TE Connectivity unveils FACT optical distribution system

At the FTTH Conference 2015 in Warsaw TE launched its FACT optical distribution frame (ODF) system.

The FACT system is designed to enable faster and easier installation in a high-density environment, the vendor says.

The tool-less system has a high level of modularity to guarantee easy migration to new connectivity platforms and expansion within existing central office sites.

In central office or point-of-presence applications, FACT meets all the requirements for a high-density, manageable system, including:

Zeus touts high-temperature fibre-optic coatings

Zeus, a specialist in high-performance polymer coatings, will showcase its ability to coat fibre-optics with durable high-temperature coatings during the SPIE Photonics West trade show in San Francisco on 10-12 February.

Zeus has developed a process to coat optical fibre with polymers such as PEEK, PFA, ETFE, PVDF and 300°C NeoTem, which enhance the fibres’ ability to withstand harsh temperatures and chemical environments.  These performance coatings also help make the fibre more robust in applications requiring mechanical strength and resistance to radiation or abrasion.

Fujikura launches 21S compact fusion splicer

Fujikura Europe has launched the 21S, an advanced single-fibre splicer that it claims is the smallest and lightest active V-groove model on the market.

The compact splicer, which has been developed for FTTx, access network, data centre and LAN applications, features a moveable V-groove mechanism for active alignment to improve splicing performance and give consistent splicing results.

Fibercore expands range of specialty fibre coatings

Fibercore, the UK-based developer of specialty optical fibres, will be officially releasing its new harsh environment graded-index pure silica core multimode fibre product at the Photonics West exhibition on 10-12 February.

3SAE offers micro-diameter soft-glass splicing services

3SAE Technologies, a provider of advanced fibre-optic preparation tools and glass processing equipment, announced today the expansion of its custom and standard fibre splicing and glass processing services and the addition of a new proprietary splicing service for soft-glass micro-fiber diameters ranging from 80µm to less than 25µm.
