OFS Press Release
September 13, 2018
Norcross, Georgia – OFS, a leading innovator of fiber optic products, announced today that the Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2018 Innovators Awards program has recognized the company’s AccuRiser™ and AccuFlex® Rollable Ribbon Premises Fiber Optic Cables with a Platinum-level award.
Presented annually, the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards program reviews and recognizes the most innovative applications of cabling and communications technology products and systems in the structured cabling industry.
Dr. Timothy F. Murray, CEO and Chairman of OFS, stated, “OFS appreciates this recognition of our products by the 2018 Innovators Awards program. The AccuRiser and AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Premises Cables reflect our company’s ongoing commitment to developing industry-leading fiber optic innovations that exceed the needs and expectations of our customers while also positively affecting the lives of end users around the globe.”
Alan Bergman, publisher of Cabling Installation & Maintenance (cableinstall.com), said, “This prestigious program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to recognize the most innovative products and leaders serving the structured cabling industry. Our 2018 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact in the industry.”
As bandwidth demands continue to explode, data center and system operators need indoor cabling solutions that can provide greater fiber density in limited space. Specifically developed to offer the highest fiber density possible relative to cable size, the AccuRiser and AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Premises Cables from OFS offer the benefits of fiber ribbons and loose fibers in one cable. The resulting ultra-dense, yet lighter-weight cables require less space than other solutions, helping installers to double the fiber density of existing pathways when compared to standard indoor cable designs. This capability is fueled by Rollable Ribbons, a new, ultra-dense fiber ribbon technology from OFS.
The judging panel for the Innovators awards consisted of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with vast professional experience. The panel judged submissions based on criteria including innovation; value to the user; sustainability; meeting a defined need; collaboration; and impact.
The 2018 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards Honorees will be featured in the November issue of Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine as well as on http://www.cablinginstall.com.
