Telect is set to unveil a handful of new products today while also displaying old favourites as it gives delegates to this year’s ITU Africa a full run down on its connectivity equipment. Foremost among the company’s kit will be its Advanced Distribution Frame (ADF) solution, which provides high-density fibre optic connectivity in a next-generation design. Key features include scalability, high termination density, ease-of-use, and exceptional cable management to protect high-bandwidth fibre, while the ADF has been engineered to accommodate emerging technologies in high fibre count locations. In fact, Telect claims that the ADF solves many of the major problems service providers encounter when deploying large volumes of fibre in space-constrained environments. Also on display today and over the course of the show is Telect’s ELF 1RU Connectivity System. Already used by many European operators, the solution is designed for use in limited-space or low circuit count environments such as wireless base stations, enterprise networks, remote sites, huts, cabinets, pedestals, and elsewhere. The ELF manages up to 48 fibre optic terminations, six E3 DSX terminations, or 24 E1 DSX terminations in just one rack unit of vertical rack space, providing high density in a modular footprint. Futhermore, the ELF 1RU connectivity system now includes fibre optic distribution and E3 digital signal cross-connect (DSX-3) modules, which Telect says makes it the one of the most versatile 1RU passive connectivity platforms available today. Although this is the firm’s first appearance at the show, Telect is keen to impress upon visitors to its stand just how important the region is to its plans and how it views the African market as a key segment of the global telecoms marketplace.
