SHANGHAI -- OFS, designer, manufacturer and supplier of leading edge fiber optic products, and CBS Products, a leading provider of solutions and equipment to installers of power transmission lines and telecom networks, are scheduled to demonstrate the features of their blown fiber cable technology and blowing equipment. Utilizing OFS' Midia(R) FX small diameter loose tube cable and CBS' Breeze blowing machine they will demonstrate a cost effective solution for installing cable in the metro route. The Midia FX' cable's low cable weight and diameter are optimal for metro installation with CBS' Breeze blowing equipment. The Breeze equipment is powerful enough to install such small diameter cables up to distances of 2 km, without shredding the outer sheath of the cable or buckling the fibers. "By installing OFS' Midia FX cable with the Breeze air-blowing machine, we're able to offer our customers last mile access solutions at significantly lower costs than previously available," explained Francis O'Malley, Managing Director, CBS products. OFS' revolutionary Midia FX optical fiber cable design can be blown into inexpensive duct networks, eliminating invasive and disruptive excavation costs, and expenditures on costly procurement of rights of way. This loose tube cable design is tested against International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Telcordia standards. OFS CBS Products Ltd.
