Neutrik has named Universal Networks as a Certified opticalCON Cable Assembler (COCA), for its range of opticalCON fibre optic cables. Universal Networks now joins a small group of approved assemblers able to assemble the opticalCON range.

opticalCON’s reliable and simple concept, with ruggedness and low maintenance at its core, has gained wide acceptance in the pro audio and broadcast industries, as well as any application that requires temporary data connectivity, including the military and emergency industries.

Managing Director of Universal Networks, Eddie Hing comments “We’re thrilled to have been awarded the Neutrik COCA accreditation, which further strengthens the range of rugged deployable fibre cabling we can offer our clients. Having been a Neutrik Network Specialist for 5 years, COCA status allows us to terminate in-house and deliver ruggedised fibre solutions to our ever increasing customer base”.

The opticalCON system is based on LC connectors but eliminates its weakness and guarantees a safe, dust protected and rugged connection. Configuration options are opticalCON DUO, QUAD & MTP (2, 4, 12 & 24 fibre) connectors. Neutrik cables offer excellent robustness and cable retention, as well as an easy to use connector mechanism.
