NYCE will be demonstrating several of their leading Plastic Optical Fiber products for residential and commercial networking including the NYCE EPM-2, a POF to Ethernet Media Converter Switch. More and more residential and commercial customers are being connected directly to last-mile Fiber Optic networks worldwide. This has created a great opportunity for Broadband Service Providers to deliver much faster Internet services and acquire new customers. Broadband Service Providers need reliable CPE products that will convert the Fiber connection into an Ethernet network within the customer premises. The EPM-2 is an ideal solution as it plugs into existing electrical outlets and uses Plastic Optical Fiber to create a high bandwidth network.

Plastic Optical Fiber is only millimeters thick, highly durable and flexible, easy to cut, and is much easier to install and conceal than traditional CAT-5 cabling. POF is also highly immune to cable electrical noise and provides a higher Quality of Service (QoS) than traditional CAT-5 electrical cable networks. This means that POF experiences minimal network congestion that is common from bandwidth-intensive applications like VOIP, IPTV, and online gaming. Many Broadband Service Providers service customer premises that have old communications cabling and face expensive upgrades to deploy traditional home networking products. The EPM-2 allows Broadband Service Providers to service premises with old cabling without having to make an investment in upgrading the premise’s existing wiring.
