Draka Communications is claiming a significant advance in FTTH installation with an enhanced air-jet product that  it said can double the throughput of fiber delivery.

 

Its Ready-Connect Duplex accommodates two pre-ferruled bend insensitive (BendBrightXS) fibers that are blown through micro-ducts to the customer outlet box at higher speeds and efficiency than current technology allows, it said. 

 

This eliminates the need for the multiple technician visits that were previously required to customer homes, with consequent cost savings, Draka said in a release.
