A unique product that allows for easy access to connectors and cables, the FOJF is a fiber enclosure specifically designed to accommodate applications that are fiber-dense and require more access to signal redirection. In today`s up-to-the-minute-news and always-connected multimedia world, broadcasters need fast and easy access to their equipment in order to reconfigure circuits for setup and transmission. A traditional fiber "box" style product can be difficult to access and can result in time lost and inadvertent loss of on-air signals. Creating a patch field similar in configuration to a copper jack field reduces the chances of accidental disconnect. With the FOJF, field technicians can easily access and test fiber circuits used for on-air, setup and transmission of signals where traditional copper products can`t support the distance and bandwidth of high-definition signals. "The fiber optic jack field brings everything that we offer in copper into the fiber world," said Dean Rosenthal, market manager, broadcast products for TE`s Enterprise Networks business unit. "It`s easy to install, maintain and use because it has the same look and feel as our copper products. Operators will love the robust technology and performance but they`ll especially appreciate the familiarity and intuitiveness of the solution." Designed with industry-standard components and using standard fiber patch cables, the FOJF product allows for easy access for quick servicing and blade-style board substitutions for fast adaptation and reduced downtime. The FOJF Features : * Quick and easy access to circuit for reconfiguration and transmission * Support for IEEE 802.3ae, IEEE 802.3ba and IEE 802.3z * Familiar orientation designed to be operator intuitive * Industry-standard components, which are easily attainable and replaceable and are cost-effective * Industry-standard, low-profile and low-loss looping plug, which maintains normalled connection * Expressly built for a master control environment * Incorporates TE Connectivity standard fiber management trays, bend radius protection, Velcro tie down straps and more For more details about TE`s Fiber Optic Jack Field solution, visit: www.TE.com/Broadcast About TE Connectivity TE Connectivity (NYSE: TEL) is a $13 billion world leader in connectivity.
