Wouldn’t it be great
if we could minimise or even eliminate
the visit inside the the home?
The fiber industry moves fast but we want to be faster and keep our statement that we already have the solutions, while others not even asking the question yet.
With the steadily growing expansion of fiber optics, new challenges arise. We have made it our business to develop products and solutions that make the installation as easy as possible so that even the endcustomer is able to do that and at the same time set our focus on interoperability, resilience and reliability.
So it came about that we have constructed our easy click-on interface between our FTUs and Gateways.
The Covid 19 pandemic has changed the lives of all people and daily business in all sectors, including the broadband industry, around the world. In this current tense situation, customer visits where a fiber termination unit (FTU) is installed to get a full FTTH (Fiber to the Home) Network become very difficult and complicated. To get a complete FTTH network, the fiber optic cables have to be fed through a hole in the end customer’s apartment or house so that the external wallbox is connected to the FTU.
With a view to the current situation and the instinct to discover and implement new ideas we asked ourself “Wouldn’t it be great if we could minimise or even eleminate the visit inside the home?”.
Extallation the new generation!
Our solution is Extallation. What is Extallation?
During this current tense situation customer visits become very difficult and so the solution is that the customers gets the FTU which is already connected with fiber cable. In order to connect the FTU with the wallbox mounted on the outside, for example via APC connector, the fiber cable from the FTU must be pushed through a hole in the wall to the Wallbox outdoors. Between the outdoor wallbox and the FTU, a hole is drilled from the outside through the wall in the end customer’s apartment or house.
Since the fiber cable is very sensitive we use a pipe that is connected with the FTU through which the fiber cable runs. This pipe with the fiber cable within will be pushed by the endcustomer through the drilled hole to the outside. The pipe is cut from the outside and finally the connection between the FTU and the wallbox can be done.
