Field Plug Testing

The dramatic growth of high-bandwidth wireless access points and other IP-enabled devices, has resulted in the practice of installing direct attach links using field terminable plugs that connect directly to the equipment. This video outlines the common methodology currently used to test direct attach links and compares it to the OCC method using the OCC Field Plug Test Adapter. This certified Test Adapter allows installers to accurately test the performance of a direct attach link.


Category 6A Field Terminable Plug Installation

OCC's new Category 6A Field Terminable Plug is simple to terminate with no specialized tools required and supports high performance 10 Gigabit networks. Termination is accomplished by simply inserting the conductors into the wire manager, squeezing the wire manager to terminate the conductors and inserting the wire manager into the plug housing. All eight conductors are simultaneously terminated when the wire manager is squeezed. This process ensures consistent, reliable terminations every time.


Category 6A Shielded Jack Termination

OCC’s new Category 6A shielded modular jack with toolless design is simple to terminate and supports high performance 10 Gigabit networks. Termination is accomplished by simply inserting the conductors into the lacing cap, placing the cap into the connector housing, and closing the jack cover. All eight conductors are simultaneously terminated when the jack cover is squeezed closed. This process ensures consistent, reliable terminations.


Fiber Stripping

OCC's HC Series cable is a rugged tight-buffer fiber unit construction that offers users higher density with a 20% reduction in diameter and weight than conventional loose-tube products. This demonstration video will show you step by step how to properly strip OCC's HC fiber optic cable as well as all the necessary tools you will need.


MARS Reels

OCC is pleased to introduce the Modular Advanced Reel System (MARS), the industry's first lightweight cable deployment reel system designed specifically for the demanding needs of harsh-environment fiber optic installations. Unlike traditional metal-style reels, MARS is a lightweight, modular system constructed of an impact modified polymer that is easily transported and is ideal for applications where cable needs to be deployed and reeled in quickly and stored efficiently. In addition, the MARS system offers a variety of deployment options including optional frames, backpacks, shipping cases, and cable acquisition platforms throughout. This enables customers to meet the demands of diverse applications and uses with one modular reel and accessories platform.
