COLOGNE, GERMANY — Emtelle, HellermannTyton and Senko Advanced Components launched a solution into the fiber-to-the-x (FTTX) market: FibreTap, a plug-and-play ruggedized drop solution. FibreTap is a pre-connectorized plug and play solution designed for overhead and underground use. It is a non-splice solution which improves speed of installation and saves time at the customer drop through its plug and play connection method.

At the launch, it was revealed that the project has been under wraps while the companies worked on designing and testing the solution to ensure it offers maximum benefit to operators worldwide. Emtelle, a blown fiber, cabling and ducted network solution manufacturer, has provided the pre-connectorized 5/2mm and 6/3.2mm universal drop cable with 2-8 G657A2 fibers pre-installed. HellermannTyton, a manufacturer of fiber splice closure and cable management solutions, has provided a specially designed optical network terminator (ONT) closure, as well as a new IP68  rated fibre plug and play adapter block for pole or chamber installations. Finally, Senko, a manufacturer of optical interconnect solutions, has provided an LC blown fiber type connector, a mechanical splice alternative solution for the ONT, as well as a bespoke version of its compact IP connector for plug-and-play solutions. Together the contributions from the three partners create a flexible and user-friendly solution: FibreTap, a plug-and-play ruggedized drop solution.
