Emtelle Launches Internal-to-External Pre-Connectorized Fiber Cabling System

  • Emtelle

HAWICK, SCOTLAND – Emtelle, a provider of blown fiber and ducted network solutions for the FTTX industry, launched its Emtelle HomeConnect solution – a pre-connectorised cabling system that can be installed for internal and external use – allowing one solution to be used for both install scenarios and bringing significant time and cost savings to fibre operators.


Designed to provide a quick and easy one-stop-solution for internal/external drop cable installations, the small and flexible cable features a 3mm low fire hazard (LFH) sheath for internal use which is covered by a slideable and adjustable 5mm PE sheath for external use. Emtelle HomeConnect is the only solution on the market to feature this slideable and adjustable sheath and allow for such a design.


The solution – which comes pre-terminated with an LC or SC connector at the house end – will reduce the specialist skills and tools required by operators deploying fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) connections, cutting the time and cost of installations.


How it Works

Emtelle HomeConnect is available in lengths of 5m, 20m, 30m and 50m and in a variety of external colors. It is deployed at the internal customer connection point (CCP) where the connectorized end (LC or SC connector) is simply plugged into, from which the polyethylene outer sheath is adjusted to expose enough LFH tube to route internally to the customer lead in point.


The product is then pushed through the lead-in point to the outside of the building where the sheath changes over from LFH to polyethylene. The external customer lead in kit at the building completes the Emtelle HomeConnect solution with capping, cable guard, a wall plate or the customer connection enclosure (CCE) all protecting the cable through its transition from internal to external use. Finally, the lead to the external splice point where the customer is connected to the external fibre network.


“Emtelle HomeConnect is a state-of-the-art solution for the fiber industry. We noticed a gap in the market for an internal cable that can have the external sheath removed or adjusted quickly and easily and this led us to develop Emtelle HomeConnect,” added Colin Kirkpatrick, solutions director at Emtelle. “We are delighted to debut this one-of-a-kind solution to the industry and are confident it will enable more operators to commit to FTTH deployments.”
