Emtelle launches indoor pre-connectorised fibre microduct system
The QWKconnect MDU from Emtelleis suitable for indoor use
Emtelle, a provider of blown fibre¬†and ducted network solutions for the telecoms industry, launched¬†a ground-breaking new product¬†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 for internal use,¬†giving excellent performance in a fire scenario.
The QWKconnect MDU¬†uses QWKlink Fibre from¬†the Emtelle FibreFlow brand, but comes pre-installed in a LFH microduct,and¬†has the added benefit of¬†pre-installed¬†fibre connectors on both ends,¬†eliminating¬†the need to splice¬†or blow¬†fibres for FTTX drop applications. The¬†QWKconnect MDU¬†fibres¬†1.1mm diameter¬†reduces the cost and complexity of installation¬†and works¬†by simply plugging in once¬†installed.
‚ÄúQWKconnect MDU¬†allows us to offer our customers¬†the most-up-to-date technology in terms of both cost-efficiency and industry regulations,‚ÄĚ¬†said¬†Scott Modha, international business development manager at Emtelle. ‚ÄúOur popular QWKconnect¬†is proven in the benefits it offers to our customers and now¬†we¬†can¬†offer an extra dimension to this through the¬†fully LFH,¬†versatile¬†QWKconnect MDU¬†for internal use.‚ÄĚ
The¬†QWKconnect¬†MDU¬†can be installed¬†from the basement,¬†up¬†the¬†riser¬†and¬†connected to a simple termination box within the premise or¬†apartment.¬†The product also¬†gives a future-proof, dedicated¬†microduct¬†pathway¬†to each¬†apartment to allow for future upgrades¬†of the fibre.
‚ÄúThere is no other product on the market which provides such savings for an¬†internal¬†or ducted FTTH drop solution when quality needs to be high and installation needs to be¬†cost-effective,¬†simple and reliable. You simply ‚ÄėFit and Forget,‚Äô‚ÄĚ¬†said Mark Graham, technical engineer¬†at Emtelle.¬†‚ÄúWe are looking forward to showcasing this product for the first time at¬†theFTTH Conference.‚ÄĚ
The¬†QWKconnect MDU¬†will be just one of the products to be showcased by Emtelle at the¬†FTTH Conference 2018,¬†whichtakes¬†place from tomorrow in Valencia.¬†Visitors to Emtelle‚Äôs stand G01 will also be invited to take part in a ‚ÄėBlown Fibre Race‚Äô which will demonstrate FiSpy by¬†FiComms,¬†for which¬†Emtelle¬†has become the¬†premier¬†distributor in¬†Europe. The Blown Fibre Race winner will be presented with a FiSpy on¬†the final day of the conference.
Emtelle‚Äôs international business development manager¬†Scott Modha will also discuss how to improve the speed and efficiency of MDU installations for FTTH, even where fibre resources are limited, in the FTTH Conference Workshops on Tuesday, February 13 from 2pm to 5pm.
