Outdoor connector transceiver provides a I/O interconnect solution
Radiall and FCI announce their joint partnership to develop and promote the innovative OCTIS (Outdoor Connector Transceiver Inside System). Specifically designed to address the challenges associated with the deployment of 4G+, LTE+ and future 5G in the telecomms market, OCTIS provides a robust I/O interconnect solution that can operate in challenging outdoor and harsh environments.
The Radiall and FCI partnership leverages the expertise of both companies. Radiall’s long term legacy of developing robust outdoor I/O interconnect solutions combined with FCI’s expertise in the design of high speed signal and power IO interconnect products provide customers a broad portfolio of outdoor performing IO solutions.
“This synergistic partnership creates a significant opportunity for FCI to offer differentiating I/O solutions in a ruggedised package that reliably perform in diverse harsh environments,” noted Danny Morlion, Chief Technology Officer, FCI.
Luc Kaës, Vice President, Product Management, Radiall, added: “We are excited by this partnership between the two technology and customer support driven organisations. It is rare to see such a high level of collaboration between two teams to develop an innovative I/O system.”
OCTIS can accommodate multi-standard and varying interconnect configurations such as SFP or SFP+ transceiver integration (with dual LC cabling), RJ45 (to transmit cat5e or cat6 Ethernet signal), high data rate signal, POE+, direct power supply (AC/DC) or a hybrid of power and signal.
OCTIS has unique features such as lightning and electromagnetic interference protection which makes it suitable for rugged and harsh environments. OCTIS is field installable solution in a small form factor. It is user friendly and features a blind mate, easy to latch, colour and physical coding system.
