USA & ENGLAND: Demonstrating its increasing success, m2fx announced that its patented Miniflex fibre cable, microduct and protection tube has now been successfully deployed in 25,000 Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) installations around the world.
Champaign Telephone Co. in Illinois recently achieved the milestone, having now used m2fx’s pushable technology to connect over 150 buildings to its Metro Ethernet network.
The innovative Miniflex product range combines toughness and lightness with ultra flexibility, making it ideal for the last 200 metres of fibre installations. Its unique design and patented pushable technology dramatically reduces the time and cost of installations by removing the need for specialist equipment or skills. FTTP customers in the developed world report savings of up to 50 percent compared to traditional installation methods.
Since 2012 Champaign Telephone Company has deployed 100,000 feet of Miniflex products to connect and network inside commercial businesses, factories and hospitals and other public buildings. Since switching to m2fx it has seen a 40 percent reduction in labour costs combined with faster installation time – technical crews can now complete a 500 feet run of cable in just half a day, allowing next day installations for new connections.
