Splitters are typically used in modern access networks, such as PON (Passive Optical Networks) and are responsible for dividing the signal coming from one or two entry fibers to two or more exit fibers (up to 128 exits).
Flash Fiber, Enel Open Fiber and Infratel network architectures need to use these devices, terminated or not, both in primary and secondary splices.
The splitter is made with two different technologies:
- Fusion: up to a maximum of 4 branches
- Planar technology: (Planar Lightwave Circuit, PLC) for superior splitting with less insertion loss
