In addition, indoor/outdoor-rated InvisiLight Façade Solutions, with 12 and 24 fiber counts respectively, can be installed on building facades when an indoor solution is not possible. is portfolio is well integrated with OFS' equally diverse SlimBox portfolio for indoor and outdoor installations. e two new InvisiLight ILU products continue providing the same benefits that InvisiLight is known for: a simple, fast, nondisruptive and almost invisible installation with a unique slack management feature when exact installation path lengths are not known. One product is a preconnectorized wall-mounted module with a dual-layer spool. e EZ-Connect module allows up to 40 meters of 900 µm OFS EZ-Bend cordage to be dispensed on the bottom layer, using the same InvisiLight installation process, and up to 1.5 meters of 3 mm OFS EZ- Bend cordage on the top spool layer. is design provides an easy way to connect the module to an indoor ONT, further simplifying and expediting the current installation as it helps eliminate an optical connection. In addition, with one less connector, attenuation loss is also decreased. e EZ-Connect Module can easily be self-installed by an end subscriber. e second product is the InvisiLight EZ-Hide faceplate that installs flush to the wall, maintaining discreetness while providing a behind-the-wall concept for a safe optical connection. With this concept, the optical installation remains hidden and allows for an OFS EZ-Bend jumper to be stored inside the ½-inch-deep faceplate. is product is also design compatible with the dual-layer spool. e EZ-Hide faceplate with dual-layer spool can be installed during new building or home construction when the indoor wiring phase is being completed. is product enables quicker FTTx deployment than the current installation of indoor fiber, making new home construction attractive as it will be fiber-ready prior to homeownership.
