CommScope announced the launch of its NOVUX portfolio of outside plant terminals and closures, designed specifically to assist global service providers in the quick and efficient deployment of fiber networks. NOVUX is the only FTTH platform with an inherently modular, end-to-end architecture that allows operators to scale and shape their networks as they evolve.
The NOVUX ecosystem leverages a flexible, modular, and backwards-compatible architecture that allows operators to adapt and scale to a wide variety of field applications. NOVUX simplifies fiber deployment by allowing operators to use 75% fewer components than existing solutions while delivering fifty times the number of configurations available today.
The system is designed with sustainable practices for packaging, labelling, and installation equipment, and it features class-leading innovations like CommScope’s Octopus sealing gel, which offers protection in harsh environments while allowing easy access for upgrades and regular maintenance.
NOVUX closures and terminals follow in the footsteps of CommScope’s Fiber Optic Splice Closure, FIST Modular Splice Closure, and Multi-Service Terminals (MST)—which have earned the trust of leading operators around the globe. The NOVUX portfolio was designed with direct input from multiple network operators around the globe. It represents a step forward in fiber deployment solutions and is made possible by CommScope’s ongoing process of feedback and innovation for the world’s leading networks.
- 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 ideal solution for FTTH distribution and drop applications, helping providers prepare for the future. 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 and gives operators peace of mind.
- The NOVUX SRC Closures are the ideal fiber closure for repair, network extensions, and house demarcation—giving providers the agility and flexibility to use it in last-mile fiber network applications, both above and below ground.
- The NOVUX SEC Closures provide 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.
As the portfolio expands, CommScope will roll out additional NOVUX fiber solutions to meet the needs of global service providers.
The NOVUX SRC 100 Closure and Hardened Terminals are now available globally, and the SEC 100 Closures and CSC 100 Compact Closures will be rolled out across multiple regions in the coming months.
CommScope will demo the current NOVUX portfolio this week at ANGA COM, 8-10th June 2021.
