NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 7, 2016 — Fiber optic network solutions developer OFS Fitel LLC has received an Emmy award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for contributions toward the pioneering and deployment of fiber optic cable.

OFS Receives Emmy for Fiber Optic PioneeringThe Emmy Awards for Technology and Engineering are presented to companies that engineer significant or innovative developments that affect the transmission, recording or reception of television. OFS’ award recognizes the roles of company’s predecessors, Bell Labs and Western Electric, as well as OFS in the development of technologies that have refined and enhanced the use of fiber optic cable for broadcast television.

“OFS is honored by this recognition of the breakthrough discoveries made by our predecessor companies which OFS has continued to build upon with technological breakthroughs and enhancements,” said Dr. Timothy F. Murray, CEO and chairman of OFS. “The invention and widespread deployment of single-mode fiber optic cable has fundamentally changed broadcast delivery over the past 30 years. Today’s fiber-rich broadcast networks help to enable flawless, on-demand delivery of increasingly higher resolution television programs while also containing the bandwidth needed to deliver whatever incredible offerings the broadcast television industry will create in the future.”

OFS is a designer, manufacturer and provider of optical fiber, fiber optic cable, connectivity, FTTx and specialty photonics solutions.

“This award is emblematic of both our company’s proud heritage, as well as our ongoing commitment to developing industry-leading fiber optic innovations that positively impact the quality of life for end users around the globe,” Murray said.
