PPC® Unveils EXPlus™ Continuity Connector at 2009 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo®

DENVER — Oct. 28, 2009 — PPC®, a leader in connector and filter technology for more than 65 years, today introduced its new patented EXPlus™ continuity connector at the 2009 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo® in Denver. The device creates an optimal connection, reducing network degradation and service calls due to a less-than-finger-tight connection.
Based on PPC’s existing EX® Series connectors, EXPlus employs a unique feature that prevents RFI ingress and maintains constant signal continuity even when the nut is loose. Because a single loose connector can affect the entire return path performance, EXPlus lowers the threshold of the entire node, increasing the threshold of CPE devices and drastically reduces service calls.

“The connector is the highest volume item in any network, and a single loose connector can affect the entire return path performance,” said Dave Morrocco, vice president and general manager of broadband for PPC. “By maintaining constant signal continuity, EXPlus saves providers thousands of dollars annually that would usually be spent on service calls and unnecessary equipment replacement. At the same time, a higher-integrity network increases customer satisfaction and reduces customer churn, which ultimately has a positive impact on the bottom line.”

EXPlus is available as RFTight for international customers. More information about these products is available at www.ppc-online.com/broadband/family.php?id=10.
