Preformed Line Products Reintroduces COYOTE ACE Wall plate addresses a multitude of home and ofce network connection options. MAYFIELD VILLAGE, OH – Preformed Line Products Company (PLP), a leader in the energy industry since 1947, is reintroducing the patented COYOTE ACE (Adaptable Connection Enclosure). First introduced in 2011, this fber connection wall plate was designed to ofer maximum fexibility when addressing the connection options required to support home and ofce networks. Continuous improvement, a PLP tradition, resulted in the following added features: • Shutter covers designed to prevent laser light from escaping the unit • A CAT6 – copper jack • A new faceplate option with two keystone jacks and one fber adapter. Te white, fame-retardant COYOTE ACE enclosure measures 4" wide x 6" long x 1" deep. It features interchangeable inserts that allow the enclosure to be confgured to support fber/coax, fber/CAT6, coax/CAT6, coax-only and fber only applications. Te design ofers support for splice/patch applications and multiple connection types. Te COYOTE ACE accepts industry-standard adapter and coax splitters, and for surface-mount applications using raceway, fber entrance slots on the side and top of the base are available. Te enclosure can be used below a COYOTE Fiber Wall Plate to support additional fber slack storage or applications requiring 1x4 coax splitters. Splice tray kits are available to support internal splicing if required. SUTTLE'S FUTURELINK SFIT SYSTEM ALLOWS ULTIMATE FTTH DEPLOYMENT FLEXIBILITY HECTOR, MN – As the future of network infrastructure planning is often uncertain, service providers look for a fexible yet robust solution for FTTH deployments. In response to this need, Suttle – a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-GM: JCS) – developed an innovative platform solution adding to the FutureLink fber connectivity family. Te FutureLink Stackable Fiber Interface Terminal (SFIT) system is designed for ultimate fber distribution fexibility for confguration and placement. Te SFIT platform is designed for indoor, outdoor, SFU, MDU and business applications, and it is mountable on a wall, pole, strand or pedestal. Featuring intuitive cable and fber routing for craft friendliness, integrated bend controls and strain reliefs to ensure fber performance, and horizontally positioned terminal adapters to prevent moisture ingress, the SFIT system contributes to lower total cost of ownership for service providers. Additionally, lightweight, fame-retardant, UV- resistant and weather-resistant materials are used to create a durable enclosure that protects typical preconnectorized cable plug-and-play confgurations. Extremely fexible enclosures are stackable and provide the ability to combine additional functions, such as splicing or slack storage for bare cable deployment or increased capacity for future growth. Whether you are planning a greenfeld or brownfeld application, the SFIT system can meet your FTTx deployment challenge.
