PTO 4 customer termination unit

UTEL, an independent research and development company for telecommunications systems, has unveiled the new PTO 4 customer termination unit for the first time as part of ECOC 2014.

Once installed, the pre-connected unit can serve between one and four outlets and is factory terminated with cables up to the length of 60 metres, enabling service providers to carry out easier installations of quality Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) fittings. As a result, the time engineers spend at customer premises is minimised and the need for specialist tools, such as splicers, is eliminated.
