Spartanburg, SC and Lowell, MA - AFL is launching new Network Activation kits designed to support installation and commissioning of optical equipment in telecom, broadband and other single-mode optical fiber networks. These products are part of an expanding portfolio of AFL fiber optic kits that now include over 60 application-specific sets.
All Network Activation kits include the recently introduced AFL VOA6 Single-mode Variable Optical Attenuator, the innovative AFL One-Click Mini cleaner and AFL's field-proven OPM4-4D Optical Power Meter. Each Broadband Activation kit also includes an AFL OLS7-FTTH Optical Light Source and all equipment is calibrated for industry-standard upstream and downstream FTTx signals. Each Telecom Activation kit also includes an AFL OLS2-DUAL Optical Light Source and all equipment is calibrated for standard telecom wavelengths. Network Activation kits can be ordered with hard-sided or soft, padded carry cases.
"Most network operators allow their fiber inventory to remain dark until a customer for the additional capacity is identified," explains Bill Thompson, Senior Product Manager of AFL's Test and Inspection Division. "After that, it's all about time-to-revenue. These kits enable network activation crews to measure and match power levels, validate optical budgets and perform the basic certification tasks required to quickly activate revenue-producing services."
