CablingTop Stories

Updates combine optical fiber innovation, high performance and security network equipment, professional services, management software and qualified chain of integrators and distributors.

Designated to 100% optical network deployment in corporate environments, Furukawa Laserway Solution is embedding its solution portfolio to new future-proof product lines.

New features add even more advantages to Laserway solution, which enables meeting demands in projects of all sizes, of various segments, including the ones that demand higher speeds and particular security requirements.

One of the incorporated new features is pre-connectorized optical cabling, which exempts from in-field splices, reducing installation time and guarantees greater network flexibility. This enhances one of the many Laserway technology benefits even more: Simplified and compact infrastructure and installation ease.

Other important Furukawa Laserway solution advantages are much lower energy consumption (up to 70% savings), reduction of 35% in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), savings of 58% in physical space and also, considerably lower environment impact, compared to traditional technologies.    

Celso Motizuqui, Sales Director, Furukawa Electric Brazil, said: “Optical fiber connections are future-proof, since single mode fibers can transmit speeds in the matter of terabits per second.”

“With our newly announced partnership between Furukawa Electric Latam and Nokia, Laserway solution incorporates high performance equipment for mission critical applications, providing 10Gbps speed, IP connectivity and services convergence to the wide variety of environments contained inside manufactures, hotels or hospitals, for example,” added Motizuqui.

Motizuqui points out that these new demands for layout high flexibility and high connection speed make proper planning for corporate networks essential. In this regard, Furukawa Laserway solution portfolio now also includes the product line InvisiLight, with ‘invisible’, high resistance and flexible fibers, which can be glued directly on the wall, without requiring any kind of infrastructure or constructive work – which makes it highly recommended to historical buildings or sites with architectural or layout restrictions.

Pioneering in Latin America, Furukawa Latam have already deployed over 200,000 of Laserway network termination points globally and is the only company in this region to offer a complete passive optical network solution.

“While delivering a secure and reliable technological platform and improving corporate governance, Laserway solution also adds up relevant benefits to sustainability, due to considerable reduction of plastics use and energy consumption. In addition, it prepares companies to challenges brought by 5G, 6G and Metaverse technologies,” said Motizuqui.

All the Laserway solution-based projects rely on all support provided by Furukawa Latam and its specialized chain of integrators and distributors. This also includes pre-sale application engineering, networks and equipment warranties, management software, network equipment with unique requirements and startup services and support, among many others.
