Cable manufacturer and supplier Tratos, launches a series of FTTH optical cables designed for use inside buildings to connect individual properties. Optimised for brownfield construction networks, the new FTTH cables run vertically from the bottom to the top of the building. One or more of the cables in the bundle can be branched off at any point and connected to the end user.
A reduced amount of connectivity points (splices, connectors) reduces the installation time, minimising disruption for residents.
The cables themselves are highly flexible, even with the added protective reinforcement designed into the cable, allowing the horizontal drop cables to be pulled through existing ducts without any damage.
This is further aided by their small diameter and miniaturised cable accessories, making them suitable for installation in small conduits and building floor access points.
