Emtelle launches QWKconnect to meet indoor fire regulations

Leader in the manufacturing of blown fibre and ducted network solutions for the telecoms industry since 1980, the Emtelle, has launched a ground-breaking new product to meet new indoor fire regulations, reports ITRealms.

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, ITRealms gathered.

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.

International Business Development Manager at Emtelle, Scott Modha, said that QWKconnect MDU allows customers the most-up-to-date technology in terms of both cost-efficiency and industry regulations.

“Our popularQWKconnect 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,” Modha said.

The QWKconnect MDU, Modha also said, could be installed from the basement, up the riser and connected to a simple termination box within the premise or apartment, stressing that the product also gives a future-proof, dedicated microduct pathway to each apartment to allow for future upgrades of the fibre.

For the Technical Engineer at Emtelle, Mark Graham, there is no other product in the market which provides such savings for an internal or ducted Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) drop solution when quality needs to be high and installation needs to be cost-effective, simple and reliable.

“You simply ‘Fit and Forget.’ We are looking forward to showcasing this product for the first time at the FTTH Conference,” Mark said.

Assuring that the QWKconnect MDU will be just one of the products to be showcased by Emtelle at the FTTH Conference 2018.
