  • OFS Awarded Mexican Fiber Cable Contract
Sep 2002
DALLAS, Sept. 18 -- OFS, maker of fiber optic products, announced it was selected by Grupo Hevi in Mexico to deliver more than 300 kilometers of AllWave fiber cable.

AllWave fiber can increase network capacity over 50 percent while reducing applications costs by up to 40 percent in typical fiber optic systems, OFS said.

"AllWave fiber will reduce costs by allowing Grupo Hevi to use coarse wave division multiplexing (CWDM), a technique that offers carriers lower cost channels for capacity upgrades than dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM)," the company said. "This low-cost alternative pioneered by OFS, and now emerging commercially, enables carriers to add new capacity and services cost effectively today while still allowing further upgrade by DWDM.
