Nexans, a worldwide expert in the cable industry, is using its presence at this year’s FTTH Council Conference and exhibition to highlight its extended KINOPTICâ„¢ brand of end-to-end turnkey FTTH solutions. It will also host various workshops at the conference that demonstrate more efficient and cost-effective ways of deploying fibre to the home.

KINOPTIC – smart individual solutions to build an end-to-end network

The KINOPTICâ„¢ brand was launched last March to enable network operators and installers to easily meet all the needs of their FTTH deployments in multi-dwelling units (e.g. homes). It achieves this through a cleverly designed subscriber terminal outlet kit and by combining this with a pre-terminated cable and a pre-fitted user outlet in ‘ready-to-unroll’ packaging – therefore simplifying installation.

Since then, the brand offering has expanded and solutions have been designed for various locations on the network. Flexibility is a key trait of the brand and it now includes solutions for the central office, the distribution network and subscriber premises.

The type of KINOPTICâ„¢ solution that is chosen by operators and installers depends on the field configuration and the type of cable laying technique required to fit the cable. For instance, some cables are either pulled, blowed or extracted during installation.

In addition to this, because of the way the range has been designed, the operator and installer can select the exact solutions they need to be fitted across the FTTH network – and at every stage of the installation – right through to the subscriber’s home.

Further benefits of using KINOPTICâ„¢ include: CAPEX savings and OPEX optimisation; quick and easy deployment; flexibility to adapt to their environment in the field; and a brand that respects the aesthetics of people’s homes and private areas;

“The KINOPTICâ„¢ range, demonstrates how Nexans takes advantage of its broad industrial knowledge and expertise across various fields to innovate and develop a complete solution that serves the market’s needs,” says Xavier RENARD, Nexans Interface Product & Marketing Department Manager. “It includes all the necessary cables and accessories required to easily and quickly deliver an FTTH solution to network operators and installers.”
