New High-Density Splice Closure for the Expansion of Hybrid Fiber Optic Infrastructures

The high density SYNO S-500 splice closure from R&M combines single fiber and ribbon fiber cabling. Outdoor splice closure for variable FTTH connection.

Milpitas, October 25, 2023. R&M, the globally active developer and provider of high-end infrastructure solutions for data and communications networks, is launching a high-density version of the SYNO dome closure. The new SYNO S-500 splice closure opens up additional options for network providers in terms of the expansion of hybrid fiber optic infrastructures. The outdoor splice closure offers twice the splice capacity of standard types. It supports single fiber and ribbon fiber cabling concurrently.

Network providers can freely combine the cabling and thus variably connect premises. The SYNO S-500 has eight cable entry bays for standard round cables, ribbon cables and micro ducts. Single fiber splices, ribbon fiber splices and splitters can be placed next to each other on the splice carriers. This allows technicians to conveniently install, distribute and manage a large number of fibers in a small space. The cabling can be retrofitted or adapted at any time. The gel seal of the SYNO S-500 outdoor closure can be resealed.

For aerial and underground cabling

The SYNO S-500 is suitable for aerial and underground cabling. R&M recommends it in particular for regions in which FTTH infrastructures are to be increased quickly and prepared for future applications. As an additional service, R&M offers customer-specific pre-termination.

The six trays stacked on the SYNO S-500 can accommodate 432 single fiber or 2,592 ribbon fiber splices. The higher-density version SYNO S-500 HD even offers a third more capacity.
