Gaurav Ahluwalia, Managing Director, R&M India, said: "The SCM core components allow you to manage fibers and subscriber connections in a standard way. They support current FTTH market strategies such as point-to-point (P2P) or point-to-multipoint (P2MP) and open access, as well as the future high-power and xWDM applications for ultra-broadband networks."

The SCM comes with a bending radius of 40 millimeters. The SCM family is designed for ultra-dense fiber optic infrastructures. The three different tray types can be fitted with six or 24 fibers and shrink-fit or crimp-splice holders or with 1:32 splittings.

"India is still a growing FTTH market where the mass market is yet to be tapped. To cater to such big number of untapped users a network backbone is necessary. Often, the Indian telecom service providers come across challenges like large fiber counts, identification complexities of fiber during maintenance due to large volumes, messy cable work, and difficulties in maintaining or handling classic design of a generic ODF. Our SCM portfolio will address all these issues," added Ahluwalia.
