One of the main drivers of the mass uptake of fibre optic telecommunications by consumers directly has been the move towards passive optical networks. Passive optical networks utilise low cost, high functionality & highly reliable passive fibre devices or components.

This eliminates the need to provision individual fibres from the hub to the customer – rather requiring only a short run from a remote optical splitter to each individual customer.
Fibre Optic Systems’ manufactures a range of passive optical fibre devices including:
