Emtelle says its new 24 fibre bundle a 'game changer' to 'double operators' capacity'

By

A new solution launched at Broadband World Forum 2018 promises to "halve blowing costs per fibre for FTTx deployments with rapid installation".

Emtelle bills itself as "a leading provider of blown fibre and ducted network solutions for the telecoms industry" and has "launched its 24 fibre bundle solution at Broadband World Forum 2018, presenting significant cost savings and operational benefits for telecom operators".

We're told the new 24 fibre bundle solution "forms part of Emtelle’s FibreFlow microduct system and has been launched in response to the growing pressure on operators to provide greater capacity over fibre".

"The solution adds extra capacity for up to 288 fibres in a 24-way tube bundle and doubles the capacity of 3.5 and 4.0mm microducts, reducing the need for so many feeder cables."

Colin Kirkpatrick, head of European Business Development at Emtelle, said: "FTTx is growing rapidly around the world and more and more fibre is needed in networks which is exactly why we have launched the 24 fibre solution.

“The new 24 fibre bundle solution is going to be a game-changer for the blown fibre industry. It is going to enable operators to install a 24 fibre bundle into their existing infrastructure to feed the wider areas of their FttH deployments.

"In other words, existing operators using Emtelle microducts can double their capacity overnight and halve the blowing cost per fibre.”

Emtelle said its "24 fibre bundle can be blown up to 600 metres into existing networks of underground tube bundles when using Emtelle’s GS150 blowing machine".

"It can be blown in either 3.5mm, 5mm or larger tubes while its low friction outer jacket allows fibre to be blown around bends effectively.

"This will open up further opportunities for the solution to be deployed in locations where fibre installations were previously limited due to physically challenging terrain."

The company claims "global market coverage, including operations in the UK, Scandinavia and now Germany as well as sales offices in the Netherlands, Eastern Europe, Australia and Malaysia", and says it serves "more than 50 markets worldwide", alongside "dedicated staff across the globe to provide field support to any customers regardless of location".

Whether this means Australia's NBN Co or other local telcos can more cost effectively roll out whatever flavour of FTTx it plans for your area is yet to be seen, but the promise is there to "double operators' capacity", so presumably it will be of interest!

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
