From local exchange points to the front door.
Our networks connect people. And when it comes to bringing people together, nothing but the best will do. It’s why we believe in delivering the highest possible quality in all our work. From using the best components and materials to top-notch network design and engineering. It’s how we realise highly reliable networks that require little maintenance. The evidence: our 25-year system warranty.
the most reliable
FttX systems on the globe.
The very best systems. The very best connectivity. From local exchange points to the front door. From the smallest fibers and tubes to PoPs. Microfocus goes beyond fiber. Far beyond.
The Point of Presence (PoP) forms the interface between the wide area backbone and the access network to the customer connection. It is a crucial point in the fiber network where the telecom operators provide signal to the distribution network.
Steel ducts, PVC, PE-HD, macro- or microducts: we offer the right type of ducts for all feeder, distribution or drop network applications.
Feeder cables are fiber optic cables that run from the access node to the fiber distribution point (streetcabinet, closure). The number of fibers can vary from low fiber up to very high fiber count.
Fiber connections arriving into the customer’s home through a passive box called FTU (Fiber Termination Unit) as a final step in bringing Fiber To The Home (FTTH).
Drop cables are located on the subscriber end to connect the terminal of a distribution cable to a subscriber’s premises. They are typicality small diameter, low fiber count cables which can be installed aerially, underground or buried.
Distribution point terminals are being used to connect feeder cables with smaller distribution cables. Furthermore, they serve to protect optical cables, terminate and splice fibers, distribute and dispatch fibers, and protect other parts.
