OFS introduced the latest addition to its InvisiLight® Solutions family at the Fiber Connect Conference recently held in Orlando, FL.
Specifically designed for fiber-to-the-subscriber (FTTx) deployment to low-rise buildings or garden-style dwelling units, the InvisiLight Facade Solution uses an innovative and virtually invisible approach to place fiber on and into buildings.
In this way, the new solution solves the old consumer “pain point” of visible cabling or raceways on the exterior of buildings.

The adoption of mobile devices, data-intensive applications and 4G LTE networks are just few of the key factors driving the ever-increasing demand for greater network and Internet bandwidth.
In fact, a recent article in Optical Connections Magazine maintains that fundamental physics could pose a threat to the Internet’s continued expansion.
However, according to Robert Lingle of OFS, new fiber designs such as multi-core, few-mode and hollow core fibers could be capable of extending the limit.

If so, don’t fret. This session on “Optical Fibers for Automation Controls and Industrial Networking” is still available for viewing.
Specifically designed for integrators, this webinar discusses the challenge of transforming Industrial Automation configurations, using Industrial Ethernet, to achieve a factory floor that features a more intelligent, efficient and sophisticated network.
This session will also enhance your ability to support customers in making the most environmentally appropriate fiber optic investments.

Attending the 2017 Fiber Connect Conference in Orlando? If not, you’ll miss out on programs from Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) thought leaders and industry experts along with the newest products and solutions.
During the conference presented by the Fiber Broadband Association, OFS technical experts will headline a highly-rated educational session on “FTTH Basics and Network Design” and an MDU panel on “Opportunities and Solutions.” We’ll also display our latest, innovative solutions that help service providers achieve maximum performance and reliability for deployments while helping to increase return on investments.
It’s not too late to join more than 1,300 other FTTH professionals in Orlando on June 12-14, 2017. For additional information on the OFS sessions, go HERE. To learn more about Fiber Connect and the Fiber Broadband Association, click HERE.
A new study by RVA, LLC for the Fiber Broadband Association links widely available fiber-to-the-home service to more jobs, a better economy and new business formation. In fact, the report shows that fiber is accelerating the connected economy throughout the U.S. To learn more, GO HERE.
As the only all-fiber trade association in the Americas, the Fiber Broadband Association provides advocacy, education and resources to companies, organizations and communities who want to deploy the best networks through fiber to the home, fiber to the business and fiber everywhere.
If you missed the initial presentation, it’s not too late to view the Telecommunications Industry Association’s (TIA) Cabling Standards Update Spring 2017 webinar hosted by Cabling Installation & Maintenance.
The TIA TR-42 Engineering Committee continues to develop and revise standards and specifications relating to cabling components and systems. Because many North American cabling projects are specified to comply with TIA standards, these documents are among the most relevant to anyone involved in cabling-system design, installation, certification or management. This webcast seminar provides an update on some of the newest development and revision projects taking place in the TR-42 committee.

Leading experts from OFS will present six technical papers at the first-ever UL and IWCS China Cable & Connectivity Symposium in Shanghai, China, from April 25 through April 27, 2017.
These presentations will cover a wide range of subjects from acrylate-based, harsh environmental coatings for specialty optical fiber to high-speed, SWDM transmission over Wideband Multimode Fiber.
To learn more about these technical papers and the Symposium, go here.
As data centers increase in size and scale, many industry watchers wonder when the use of single-mode optical fiber will overtake multimode fiber in these facilities. For hyperscale data center designers, that time has arrived. However, for much of the enterprise market, multimode fiber still offers significant cost and power savings over other fibers for supporting short-reach links.
As you read this blog, multimode fiber developers are hard at work creating even more cost-effective, short-reach solutions. In fact, fiber manufacturers recently introduced OM5 wideband multimode fiber, which will support short wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM).
In a new ICT Today article, OFS Product Manager John Kamino takes an in-depth look at the evolution, introduction and standardization of wideband multimode fiber. To learn more, read here.
Data traffic on optical and mobile networks, video streaming and the large-scale rollout of Cloud computing continue to increase each year. This tremendous growth is creating the demand for additional capacity and placing stress on existing long-haul optical networks.
To help meet this need, OFS has designed and introduced a new G.654.B compliant optical fiber. This award-winning fiber combines Ultra-Low Loss with an optimized effective area that is 49% larger than the effective area of standard G.652.D fiber. As a result, network operators can maximize the distance between signal amplification and regeneration sites which, in turn, helps to reduce the overall system costs of long-haul networks.
Dr. Peter Weimann of OFS will present a live webinar on March 17, sponsored by IWCS, to discuss this new Ultra-Low Loss Fiber for terrestrial applications. To learn more and register for this webinar, please go HERE.
A new fiber optic technique for assessing muscle health could eliminate the need for painful muscle biopsies. To diagnose a muscular disorder, disease or infection, physicians must often extract a tissue sample. However, these biopsies can be quite painful and difficult to perform.
A story in Medical XPress reports that researchers at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) have developed a less invasive alternative that uses a thin fiber optic probe to quickly scan and measure the health of muscle tissue. And, for the first time, the team has now tested the system on living muscle.
