R&M has launched 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 fibre optic infrastructures. The outdoor splice closure offers twice the splice capacity of standard types. It supports single fibre and ribbon fibre 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 fibre splices, ribbon fibre 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 fibres 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.

Meanwhile, the SYNO S-500 is suitable for aerial and underground cabling. R&M recommends it in particular for regions in which fibre-to-the-home (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 fibre or 2,592 ribbon fibre splices. The higher-density version SYNO S-500 HD even offers a third more capacity.
