The popularity of FTTX means that fibre is being installed in an increasingly wide range of applications. Different scenarios require different approaches, so Emtelle offers a variety of solutions that suit different installation techniques. We have extensive experience in supplying solutions for use by Moleplough, Overhead, Micro Trench, Open Trench and In-Building, and we can work with customers to determine both; the most appropriate technique and how to implement it successfully.
The Moleplough technique typically involves specialist machines to plough a slot directly into the ground and lay the microduct or subduct into the slot immediately, in one continuous operation. Ideally this method is suited to grass verges and soft ground.DETAILS
Overhead installation is a technique proven to hold a blown fibre network system on telegraph poles, building façade. Aerial installation is generally less obstructive and a more convenient way to carry broadband connectivity.DETAILS
The Micro Trench technique requires a small compact machine to microtrench pavements, carriageways, driveways and gardens so that a single microduct solution can be branched off from the main microduct route directly to the customer.DETAILS
Open Trenching involves excavating down to a given depth, placing the microducts in a suitably prepared trench, for example, sand/pea gravel for protection, then re-instating.DETAILS
In the current situation, operators are faced with an increasing requirement to deploy in-building fibre broadband networks. The first installation step is to get fibre cable or microduct bundles into an MDU.DETAILS
