ERICSSON PASSIVE FIBER INFRASTRUCTURE SOLUTIONS



Image

All pictures © Ericsson

Ericsson technologies for the passive part of the Access Network consist of two air-blown fiber systems and networks with traditional fiber optic Drop cables.

The air-blown systems are specially developed for access networks with the highest requirements for scalability, short installation time and performance.

Regardless of chosen network technology, either a passive optical network (PON) with a partially shared fiber infrastructure, or a point-to-point network (P2P) with dedicated fibers to each end user, our systems support a variety of changes as capacity and services evolve.

Depending on the operator’s investment strategy and their existing network set-up, the fiber deployment can be implemented in sequential steps (FTTx) out from the central office (CO) to eventually finalize in a Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) connection.

Ericsson offer solutions for all FTTx network architectures as well as Consulting services for Access Network transformation.

To build for the future

Scalability
The access networks built today must be scalable, not just regarding capacity, but also regarding topology. Typical examples of scalable technologies are Ericsson Ribbonet® and Micronet air-blown systems, where incremental installation of fiber, easy repair and upgrade are key elements. The system scalability minimizes the total cost of ownership.

Versatility
It is impossible to know what technological changes will happen in the future. Therefore, most network components are designed for any possible topology or combination of topologies in the same product, for example PON (P2MP) and P2P.

They will also support a full transformation from PON to P2P (or vice versa) without the need for additional civil works. All of our major network components can handle any cabling type, for example air-blown fiber, micro cable, drop cables or traditional cable (or a mix of the above).

Sustainability 
All products are designed to minimize the environmental impact, from the manufacturing phase and through the lifecycle of the products. Total RoHS compliance and halogen-free materials are features of the entire product range. Packing materials are minimized or fully recyclable

The Feeder and Distribution Network is the backbone of any fiber access network.

The feeder network connects any central office to fiber distribution points such as our Fiber Distribution Hubs (FDHs).

The FDH is the location of passive fiber optic devices such as fiber optic splitters and/or cross connection facilities depending on technology.

When deploying metropolitan and access networks, air-blown micro cable technology offers great benefits. A microduct system such as Ericsson Micronet enables quick and easy incremental installations of cables.

The capacity of the network can quickly be increased by inserting new cables in spare microducts when needed The system also minimizes the number of fiber splice joints in the network compared to traditional cable solutions. The Micronet system consists of micro cables, microducts, duct joints and accessories.

For more information on our traditional loose tube and ribbon cables for the distribution and drop networks, see the Fiber Transport Network.

Flame-retardant Fiber Optic Cables

Image

Ericsson cables for combined indoor/outdoor installation are all halogen-free and flame-retardant; consequently, no corrosive gases are generated during combustion and in the event of fire they will not spread it further.

The cables cover fiber counts that meet common building practices within the telecom industry. The fibers can be of different types and different fiber types can be mixed in the same cable.

The indoor/outdoor cables are often used between a pre-terminated indoor ODF and an outdoor joint closure. The cable sheaths should be protected from direct sunlight and moisture, and good drainage is recommended for outdoor installation in short lengths.

The Drop and Premises Network offering features the Ericsson Ribbonet® system for "last mile" deployment in the access network. 

The system is recommended for medium to long-distance drop networks between the Fiber Access Terminal (FAT) and the Fiber Termination Boxes (FTB) or various types of Customer Premises Equipment (CPE).

Ericsson Ribbonet® is an air-blown fiber system based on microducts that you deploy incrementally as you expand your network and add subscribers. The air-blown concept reduces the civil work and installation costs significantly. The installation methods also allows for less stress on the fibers and fewer fiber splice points than traditional fiber optic cables systems, keeping the network integrity high with less maintenance cost during operation. For special cases with e.g. short distances and narrow risers we also offer Drop cables solutions.

Drop Cables

Image

Ericsson Drop Cables are designed for quick and easy connection of end-users to a nearby Fiber Access Terminal (FAT) in the FTTx network.

Drop cables can be a good alternative to air blown fiber ABF for shorter distances and where there is easy access for the cable installation. To facilitate installation and minimize attenuation when the cable is installed around sharp corners, all ourdrop cables are based on extra bend resistant G.657.B fiber. The fiber is compatible with standard G.652.D fiber that is used in feeder and distribution cables.

Products and Services


Rack Systems

Rack Systems, including the Multifiber Management System with patch-cord management and Fiber Jointing Cabinets.

Depending on the chosen technology, PON or P2P, the need to handle mass termination of fiber optic cables and patch cords in central office environment varies. We offer different types of racks or cabinets that are based on the Good Cable Management concept together with cost-efficient focus.


 
Multifiber Management System - 1/BFM 108 213 
The mulifiber management is a high-capacity fiber termination rack system for central office applications. The rack is equipped with fiber management through vertical and horizontal cable guides. Excess fiber is stored in a dedicated compartment. The basic system includes a 19" frame, side section with vertical patch cord overlength storage, side and back covers, doors and overhead cable tray. Optical Distribution Frames (ODFs) and patch cables are ordered separately.

   Size: 800x1800*x400mm (*Overhead cable channel adds 150mm to height)
   Capacity: 36U
   Capacity, connections: up to 1536 (SC)



Fiber Jointing Cabinet - NCD 518 8005
Cabinet for handling cable splices between incoming cables entering the central office and the cables from pre-terminated ODFs. The cabinet can either be wall mounted or mounted in a 19" or ETSI rack.

   Type: Splice cabinet 
   Size: 440x600x220mm
   Capacity: 768 splices (single fiber)



Optical Distribution Frames

Optical Distribution Frames (ODFs) are integrated components in any fiber management system.

They are available as rack-mounted units for 19” or ETSI racks, or as wall-mounted cabinets. The ODFs are available in a range of configurations depending on application:

Pre-terminated ODFs with stub cables are pre-installed with connectors and cable for quick and easy installation. Units with pre-terminated cables offer advantages such as faster installation, resulting in shorter time to revenue as well as guaranteed quality and performance. Several cable options are available. ODFs with stub micro cables are especially suitable for high packing density applications such as the Ericsson Multifiber Management System (MMS).

Pre-terminated ODFs, with micro cable on reel are delivered attached to a reel with longer lengths of outdoor rated micro cable, eliminating time consuming and costly splicing of cables in the central office. This is also a preferred option in combination with the Multifiber Management System.

ODFs for cable installation are intended for installation and termination of all kinds of fiber optic cables. The units are suitable for splicing pigtails or fiber ribbon fanouts as well as field-installable connectors. The ODFs are delivered empty, allowing the customer to order the pigtails/fanouts, adapters, splice protection sleeves and installation kit that best suit the specific application. The units can also be installed with pre-connectorized cable assemblies.

ODFs for air blown fiber are designed to handle termination of ducts for air blown fibers. They are typically used in FTTx applications when blowing fibers directly to a central office or other distribution point. The air blown technology enables incremental installation when needed.
