Blown fibre and ducted network solutions provider, Emtelle has revealed a new 24-fibre bundle solution at Broadband World Forum 2018 in Berlin.
Emtelle has added FS:Detect to its product range in order to provide an integrated kit designed to pinpoint damage and deliver error-free microduct selection in fibre networks.
Developed by New Zealand-based FiComms, the FiSpy kit – which was showcased for the first time at this year’s ANGA COM conference and exhibition in Cologne – consists of two complementary hand tools.
The global optical communications industry is currently experiencing a surge in demand for fibre to the premises (FTTP) in order to achieve the faster broadband speeds required for the evolving needs of the consumer, who is no longer content to wait before watching the latest episode of their favourite box set.
Emtelle has a new addition to its PowerProtect+ range with Opticom, which was recently chosen as the new standard duct between manholes and the intake areas of a range of data centres in EMEA.
At the FTTH Conference 2018 in Valencia, blown fibre specialist Emtelle launched a new pre-installed fibre microduct system designed to meet new indoor fire regulations.
Based on the QWKconnect pre-connectorised fibre microduct system, the new QWKconnect MDU is manufactured out of Low Fire Hazard (LFH) material, meaning it is suitable use in multiple dwelling units (MDUs).
Scotland-based blown fibre specialist Emtelle has acquired German duct manufacturer Moore GmbH. The acquisition is part of a €30 million investment by Emtelle to expand its overall manufacturing capacity and presence in Europe.
In an ever-growing FTTH market worldwide, service providers are constantly looking for ways to lower the cost and simplify the process of rolling out fibre networks. One area of the network where speed and simplicity are of paramount importance is the final drop to the consumer. As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. To get the customer relationship off on the right foot, service providers need to ensure that the installation of a new fibre connection proceeds smoothly and with minimal disruption while working in the subscriber’s home. A new product to the market, which can help service providers ensure that installation is quick and efficient, are pre-connectorised fibre cable bundles with blowable ferrules.
A new and welcome trend that has emerged sees utility companies using their existing infrastructure and pre-existing utility ducts in innovative ways to provide customer connections. This trend is obviously driven by the desire to eliminate the cost of installation, which can ultimately make or break any FTTH project…
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
