A collaboration between three companies is designed to help operators speed up fibre installation.

Emtelle, HellermannTyton and Senko Advanced Components made the announcement at ANGA COM, where representatives spoke about the collaboration and the benefits of the new solution, FibreTap.

FibreTap is a pre-connectorised plug and play solution designed for overhead and underground use. It is non-splice, which means that installation speed is reduced and time is saved at the customer drop, through its plug-and-play connection method. The companies kept the project under wraps while work was carried out on designing and testing the solution. Speaking at the launch event, Tony Rodgers, Emtelle CEO, said: 'We have been working on this for the last six months. It has been tested and developed to meet all the standards for the global market.'

Emtelle provided the pre-connectorised 5/2mm and 6/3.2mm universal drop cable with 2-8 G657A2 fibres pre-installed, while HellermannTyton provided a specially designed optical network terminator (ONT) closure, as well as a new IP68-rated fibre plug-and-play adapter block for pole or chamber installations. Senko provided an LC blown-fibre type connector, a mechanical splice alternative solution for the ONT, as well as a bespoke version of its compact IP connector for plug-and-play solutions. Together, the contributions create FibreTap.

Matthew Hunter, managing director at HellermannTyton said: 'To pre-connectorise our well-renowned closures to Emtelle's quality cable with Senko's ruggedised connector, makes a complete solution that helps installers worldwide make fibre installations quicker, easier and more effective.'

Miguel Miyamoto, general manager at Senko Euro, said: 'It's been great to combine three world leaders in their own right that have three individually great components into one exceptional solution for the FTTX market.

'We're truly excited to see this solution growing to become the go-to solution for operators worldwide.'
