The Right Fibre for Every FTTH Customer

R&M is expanding the family of PRIME fibre optic distributors to include inserts for single fibre management in FTTH access networks. The administration is made easier by crossover-free fibre routing.

Wetzikon, September 28, 2021. Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is spreading at breakneck speed. Telecommunications companies have a lot to do in the final mile to customers. They have to connect and manage large quantities of optical fibers in the distributors of the access networks. This can be complicated and the distributor room is often cramped. This is why R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, wants to further simplify and increase the density of FTTH cabling. To this end, R&M is now expanding the PRIME family with two modules for single fiber management on network level 3.

These modules are compact fiber inserts for the various PRIME sub-racks and distribution frames, each with twelve FMTS compact splice trays with optionally 4x shrink (HS) or crimp (ANT) splice contactors. The inserts support the two- and four-fiber concept for FTTH networks. At least two fibers are required to connect a subscriber or a house to the broadband network. The four-fiber concept opens up the access network to more offers and more competition among Internet service providers.
