Low Fire Hazard QWKconnect MDU pre-connectorised fibre microduct system for internal use will be premiered at FTTH Conference 2018
Hawick, Scotland, February 12, 2018 – Emtelle, a leading provider of blown fibre and ducted network solutions for the telecoms industry, today 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.
“QWKconnect MDU allows us to offer our customers the most-up-to-date technology in terms of both cost-efficiency and industry regulations,” said Scott Modha, International Business Development Manager at Emtelle. “Our 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.”
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.
“There 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 ‘Fit and Forget,’” said Mark Graham, Technical Engineer at Emtelle. “We are looking forward to showcasing this product for the first time at the FTTH Conference.”
The QWKconnect MDU will be just one of the products to be showcased by Emtelle at the FTTH Conference 2018, which takes place from tomorrow in Valencia. Visitors to Emtelle’s stand G01 will also be invited to take part in a ‘Blown Fibre Race’ 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’s 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.
