Tellabs FlexSym Singlemode to Multimode Splitters offer Design Flexibility and Better Economics for Optical LAN

We are very excited to announce in today’s national news release that the Tellabs FlexSym SM-MM 2×8 Splitter and Tellabs FlexSym SM-MM 2×32 Splitter are available for our Optical LAN customers.


The Tellabs FlexSym SM-MM Splitters are a mode-adapting splitter that has singlemode (SM) fiber ports on the Optical Line Terminal side of the splitter and allows operation of 2.5G ITU-T 984 G-PON over multimode (MM) fiber between the splitter and the Optical Network Terminals.


Tellabs FlexSym SM-MM Splitter enables maximum re-use of exiting optical fiber infrastructure where there is SM fiber cabling between buildings, MM fiber cabling within buildings and a centrally located OLT. It also can be used when a SM fiber cable is between main data center (i.e. MDF) to telecom closet (i.e. IDF) and a MM cable runs from the telecom closet throughout the access network (i.e. horizontal and drops). The solution supports OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 multimode fiber cable types.


This enables both our commercial and federal government customers to move forward with Optical LAN retrofits because this singlemode to multimode splitter allows them to leverage existing multimode fiber cabling. The net result is they can cost-effectively update their network to OLAN, which gives them better security, has software defined LAN functions today and stands ready to support 10G speeds when and where needed.


This week we are at BICSI Fall 2018 in San Antonio showcasing the Tellabs FlexSym Series. If you’re there, please stop by our exhibitor booth (#300) to see our SM-MM splitter.
