PCT has developed a mini-fiber node that combines the advantages of an internal coupler and the company’s Burst Mode technology. The new PCT-BPFN products, which build on the growing adoption of Burst Mode technology over the past year, split wavelengths internally to reduce the amount of fiber needed in RFOG and FTTx deployments. At the same time, they continue to provide the low-noise, highly-responsive performance that Burst Mode enables.?
“Our latest version doubles the service footprint opportunity with a given number of fiber strands and leverages Burst Mode’s RF detection capabilities to minimize unnecessary laser activity, significantly reducing plant noise,” said Brandon Wilson, EVP, product management and marketing for PCT.?
Created for single-fiber installations, the new PCT-BPFN products are specifically designed for higher-density locations where the availability of fiber may be limited.
