Sunset Digital selects OFS for fiber-to-the-home deployments

The 4.8 millimeter EZ-Bend cable allows technicians to install the cable indoors with no existing pathways

By CBR Staff Writer

Internet service provider Sunset Digital is using OFS’s EZ-Bend drop cable for their fiber-to-the-home deployments. OFS is a manufacturer and provider of optical fiber, optical fiber cable and specialty photonics products.

Sunset Digital’s deployment uses a Mini LT flat drop cable with OFS’ AllWave Flex fiber to connect rural single-family homes and businesses in Southwest Virginia. After the flat drop cable is spliced to EZ-Bend cable at a network interface device (NID) on the side of the home, the EZ-Bend cable is routed indoors to the customer premises equipment (CPE).

According to OFS, the 4.8 millimeter EZ-Bend cable will allow Sunset Digital technicians to install the cable indoors with no existing pathways while the Fitel Splice-On Connector will allow direct terminations to the CPE.

Paul Elswick, president and CEO of Sunset Digital, said: However, this requires us to take fiber inside a customer’s home and through all sorts of installation conditions. The EZ-Bend product from OFS has the bend radius and the robustness to support the application, while leaving a higher quality of fit and finish that we require. Additionally, it terminates and splices like conventional fiber products so our field technicians need no additional training.
