WAVEPACE® available for subsidized fiber rollout

  • Reading time:4 mins read

WAVEPACE® components of network levels 4 and 5 are certified to meet the requirements of the subsidized German fiber optic rollout.

By the end of last year, BTV Multimedia Group launched WAVEPACE®, the first group-wide FTTH product series. Components such as the MDU Splice Patch Wall Box were successful in establishing themselves as standard components at leading network providers within just a few months. Now, the WAVEPACE® components of network levels 4 and 5 (MDU Splice Patch Wall Box, SDU Splice Patch Wall Box and FTTH Wall Outlets), using LC/APC connectors, are certified to meet the requirements of the subsidized German fiber optic rollout.

The WAVEPACE MDU Splice Patch Wall Box for up to 72 splices and 32 LC ports impresses not only with its IP55 and IK08 protection levels, but also with very space saving dimensions of only 250 x 170 x 90 mm and its modular structure, which enables the product to be fully pre-assembled. The SDU Splice Patch Wall Box, on the other hand, thanks to its capacity of 12 splices and 4 LC ports, is particularly suitable for network level 4 termination in single dwelling houses, whereas the WAVEPACE® FTTH Wall Outlet can be optimally used as a cost-optimized, passive fiber optic termination in the end customer’s apartment. In addition to the products mentioned, the WAVEPACE® product portfolio currently consists of core components of network levels 2 and 3, such as an Optical Distribution Frame system solution and Splice-Splitter-Patch Outdoor Cabinets.

“We offer all WAVEPACE® products pre-assembled in their standard versions, which makes it possible to carry out large parts of a fiber optic installation with semiskilled workers. This way, we actively support installers and network operators in overcoming the current shortage of skilled staff in the fiber optic sector. The certificate for the conformity of the components with the requirements of the subsidized broadband expansion now enables an even further area of application of the WAVEPACE® components”, Ludwig Modra, CTO of the BTV Multimedia Group, emphasizes the advantages of WAVEPACE®. Members of the corporate group act as equal partners in the products’ distribution. Further information is available at www.wavepace.com
