FTTH service providers often deploy compact Optical Network Terminates (ONTs) deep into subscribers’ homes to facilitate in-home networking.  However, some customers cancel service orders when they learn that the installation requires unsightly conventional optical cables. In addition, tight spaces, corners, existing architecture and other factors can make deploying fiber difficult inside many ILUs and MDUs. The InvisiLight Optical Solutions portfolio was designed to help meet these specific challenges.

The InvisiLight ILU Solution consists of a single optical fiber for fiber-in-the-home (FITH) installations

The InvisiLight MDU Solution offers virtually invisible and faster fiber optic installation than traditional fiber routing inside residential and business MDUs. This solution provides a complete in-building solution that can help accelerate the adoption of fiber optic service through faster and lower cost installation than traditional installation techniques with a virtually invisible result. These benefits, in turn, can result in higher subscriber acceptance and take rates.

The InvisiLight MDU Solution consists of a 12-fiber unit for building hallways

With the InvisiLight ILU Solution, the installer uses an innovative yet simple process to adhere a 0.9 mm diameter optical fiber into crevices along ceilings and walls or moldings and walls. In this way, the solution offers a safe, protected optical fiber link that blends seamlessly into the ILU, is virtually invisible to the eye and installed without disruption to the homeowner or décor. The InvisiLight MDU Solution helps meet the often difficult and expensive challenge of deploying fiber in hallways and between floors of existing buildings. This solution uses a fast, easy–to-install and practically invisible 12-fiber optical unit that can be surface mounted in hallways, on the exterior of each apartment or office and between floors to connect subscribers to ultra-high speed services.

InvisiLight Optical Solutions

The OFS InvisiLight Optical Solution, launched in 2012, is a revolutionary system that addresses needs for fast, non-disruptive and discrete installations with an almost invisible fiber drop connection into the residence.

Today, setting the standard based on hundreds of thousands of proven indoor and outdoor installations globally, the InvisiLight Optical Solution has evolved to a complete plug-and-play portfolio that encompasses:

  • OFS industry leading EZ-Bend (G.657.B3) fiber with a 2.5 mm bend radius,
  • ILU spools with pre-connectorized cordage (600um or 900um as applicable),
  • MDU spools with indoor and outdoor pre-connectorized or bulk RIB multifiber cordage,
  • Innovatively designed modules for intuitive slack management,
  • Engineered adhesive for secure indoor installations,
  • Optional corner protectors for breakage prevention as needed,
  • Wide variety of installation tools and accessories
