CommScope’s new FIST Modular Splice Closure designed to make installation easier

Share this on social media:

The recent FTTH Conference in Amsterdam saw CommScope introduce its new FIST Modular Splice Closure that assists network operators with building a fibre foundation for future networks.

The splice closure features gel sealing technologies; composed of eight interchangeable and wrap around cold-seal segments that are field and factory installable. There is a wide range (universal termination for 1-27mm) of cables, as well as single circuit and single-element splice trays with high levels of performance at high splice capacity. It also features a removeable base for easy access during installation and provisioning.

Ric Johnsen, senior vice president of network cables and connectivity at CommScope said: ‘CommScope’s new FIST modular splice closure is a game changer as we consider it the most comprehensive upgrade to our fibre portfolio in decades. This is the type of innovation which will continue to gain in popularity as it helps service providers build a stronger business case for truly converged wireless and wireline networks.’
