Deployment Methods that Work with your Environment

Field Termination

On-site field terminations and exact length cable builds offer the greatest flexibility and possibility for customization within your network infrastructure. This enables real-time moves, adds, changes, repairs, and restoration for minimal downtime. Centered around the Lynx-CustomFit™ Family of Splice-On Connectors enjoy quick, easy, and reliable customized terminations without the shorts, excess slack, or the logistic delays of preterminated cables.


Factory assembled and tested, our Pre-Terminated  and Pre-Stubbed product solutions provide a simplified way to meet network interconnect needs while improving quality, saving labor cost, and reducing installation time. Shipped ready for installation, these solutions allow the customer to specify the fiber type, fiber quantity, panel connector type, and panel size making them an ideal choice anywhere interconnects  are needed. Available as LGX, HD, and SWK™ Series.


FutureFLEX® Air-Blown Fiber® offers unprecedented ease of installation, flexibility, and cost savings for current and future network requirements. 

The revolutionary technology and design of the FutureFLEX® Air-Blown Fiber® solution provides immediate scalability with installations of exact fiber types and counts required in real-time.
