In these reviews, the company's LaserWave® FLEX WideBand Multimode Fiber received a score of 4.5 out of 5 points and the InvisiLight® Optical Solutions earned a score of 3.5 points.
Presented annually by Lightwave, the Lightwave Innovation Reviews program distinguishes products and solutions available within the optical networking industry as determined by a stellar panel of third-party judges, including executives and analysts from a wide array of service providers, technology developers, industry analysts and journalists. Products and solutions that earn a score of 3.5 or more out of 5 points are recognized.
Dr. Timothy F. Murray, CEO and Chairman of OFS, stated, "OFS appreciates this recognition of our products by the Lightwave Innovation Reviews. The LaserWave FLEX WideBand Multimode Fiber and InvisiLight Optical Solutions reflect our company's ongoing commitment to developing industry-leading fiber optic innovations that exceed the needs and expectations of our customers while, in turn, positively affecting the lives of end users around the globe."
Lightwave Group Publisher Rob Stuehrk remarked, "On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate OFS on their scores. This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most original and innovative products in the optical networking industry. We are pleased to celebrate OFS' LaserWave FLEX WideBand Multimode Fiber and InvisiLight Optical Solutions for their meaningful contributions to the optical networking industry."
Designed to meet the demands of today's OM4 networks, LaserWave FLEX WideBand Multimode Fiber uses short wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) to allow multiple lanes of traffic over the same strand of optical fiber. With this ability, this new fiber may increase transmission capacity by up to 400% without raising cable fiber counts. This capability can help service providers to gain greater capacity and faster speeds using less fiber, and can save them time and money while reducing cable congestion.
The InvisiLight Optical Solutions for Home and Business help service providers to offer 100X faster speeds for the Internet. The InvisiLight Indoor Living Unit (ILU) Solution enables fast, easy-to-install and almost invisible fiber drop connections for ILUs or fiber-to-the-desk (FTTD) services. The InvisiLight Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) Solution uses the same proven technology to make optical fiber readily available to each resident or tenant in a multi-unit building. In this way, these solutions can help to ensure reliable, ultra-high-speed internet and other services while significantly helping to improve the consumer experience, lower costs and speed installation.
