To provide service providers with flexible and modular fiber terminals and enclosures to ease the fiber distribution and installation process, CommScope announced the launch of its NOVUX portfolio of outside plant terminals and closures for deployment of fiber networks.
With NOVUX, operators can use 75% fewer components than existing solutions while delivering fifty times the number of configurations available today for fiber deployments. The system is designed with sustainable practices for packaging, labeling, and installation equipment, and it features innovations like CommScope’s Octopus sealing gel, which acts as protection against harsh environments and easy for upgrades and regular maintenance.
"Our NOVUX portfolio is all about giving our operator customers the highest degree of agility and flexibility in their growing fiber deployments. The new NOVUX range allows operators to maximize their network and respond quickly to changing market conditions and high-volume demand,” said James DeCoe, vice president, Network Connectivity, CommScope.
NOVUX closures and terminals comes after CommScope’s Fiber Optic Splice Closure, FIST Modular Splice Closure, and Multi-Service Terminals (MST)—which are used by leading operators around the globe. Inputs from multiple global network operators have been incorporated to design the NOVUX portfolio.
The NOVUX Hardened Terminals offer the widest variety of technologies available from a single platform: single and multi-fiber, splitters, optical tap, fiber indexing, and on-demand hybrid configurations in a minimized footprint for optimal port count and terminal size.
The NOVUX Compact Closures are the future-ready solution for FTTH distribution and drop applications. Using state-of-the-art technology, the closure is protected from harsh conditions by CommScope’s Octopus gel seal, which simplifies re-entry for field installers.
The NOVUX SRC Closures are fiber closure for repair, network extensions, and house demarcation that support agility and flexibility in last-mile fiber network applications, both above and below ground.
The NOVUX SEC Closures is an ideal solution for applications where underground work is difficult or impossible. When used with the new CommScope retractable fiber cable, this solution brings together advanced patented technologies and proven high-performance standards, while enabling rapid deployment for horizontal mounting on a building’s outer façade.
The NOVUX SRC 100 Closure and Hardened Terminals are available globally, and the SEC 100 Closures and CSC 100 Compact Closures will be rolled out across multiple regions in the coming months.
