Lucent Technologies adds LC angled polished connector designed for the cable TV/Fiber-to-the-home/DWDM to its LC family of products

October. 1, 2001

AMSTERDAM - Lucent Technologies (NYSE:LU) today announced an addition to its Optical Fiber Solutions (OFS) LC family of products, the LC Angled Polished Connector (APC). Unveiled this week at the ECOC 2001 trade show, the LC-APC is designed to meet the needs of the cable television, fiber to the home and dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) markets.

The LC-APC is a small form factor connector - part of the continuing evolution in miniaturization - that doubles the density of fiber termination equipment and incorporates the new one-piece design currently used in standard single mode connectors to create a more rugged, robust product.

The connector boasts return loss better than 70db and typical insertion loss performance of 0.08 dB, making the performance of the angled connector similar to that of standard non-angled connectors. The connector can be easily distinguished from standard non-angled LC connectors by its green housing and green boot.

"The continuing growth of our diverse LC product family, with the LC-APC, is a sign of our commitment to offer complete end-to-end solutions for our fiber and cable customers," said Denys Gounot, president of Lucent's Optical Fiber Solutions.

LC-APC connectors are available in packs of 100 and 1,000 -- something of particular interest to OEM manufacturers -- for both the jumper connector and for behind-the-wall connectors for convenience in ordering for both jumper and pigtail connectorization needs. Factory terminated LCAPC jumpers, pigtails and adapters are also available.

Optical fiber has become the primary backbone of the Internet revolution because of its enormous capacity for transmitting voice, data and video. Lucent Technologies' Optical Fiber Solutions business changed the very nature of the optical fiber industry with the concept of fibers that are optimized for specific applications such as long haul, metro express and regional networks (TrueWave® RS), metro local and access (AllWave®), for undersea networks (UltraWave®). Lucent Technologies was the inventor of the ST® optical connector.

Lucent's Optical Fiber Solutions is a world leader in the manufacture of optical fibers, fiber cable, specialty fibers, and fiber optic apparatus. Lucent Technologies' Optical Fiber Solutions business is headquartered in Norcross, Ga., and led the industry in the shift to new application-based fibers with its introduction of TrueWave Fiber in 1993. Lucent's AllWave Fiber was named as one of Industry Week magazine's "Technologies of the Year."

In July, Lucent announced the sale of its OFS business to Furukawa Electric Company and CommScope. That transaction is expected to be completed this quarter.
