Metropolitan Networks

The way in which the global communications infrastructure is built, is constantly evolving. When building digital infrastructure networks the chosen technology must be able to support a variety of changes, as capacity and services evolve. The access networks that are being built now, must also be scalable for capacity and topology.

Hexatronic’s fiber optic systems offer versatility and sustainability for future-proof solutions. The Micronet Micro Cable system and the Ribbonet® Air Blown Fiber systems are scalable, cost effective, high performance cabling system for metropolitan and access networks.

Hexatronic's solutions for metropolitan networks are built for high performance and a long life span. They deliver unlimited bandwith capacity and the ability to grow as demand increases and new services are introduced. The network can easily be expanded by simply incorporating new cables in alternative microducts whenever needed. This allows cable network operators to meet the increasing demand for broadband access networks. Major fiber increase is possible within existing channels so the expansion scalability options are huge. Micronet also minimizes initial investment costs as excess fiber capacity is not needed to guarantee future demands.

Quick and Easy Installation
The Ribbonet® and Micronet Air Blown Fiber solutions reduce installation time and costs, by using simpler and faster techniques for installing cables and fiber. The core of the Micronet system is a super thin fiber optic cable designed for easy installation. The slim size and small bend radius allows for installations in existing ducts and within traditional power, water or gas infrastructure. The fiber optic cable can then easily be blown in, saving time and money.


A Large Number of Fibers in a Compact Cable
The ability to have lots of fiber in a highly compact cable saves space and increases capacity. Up to 96 fibers can be held within one Micronet cable, with an outer diameter of only 5.7 mm. The supreme capacity makes Micronet the preferred choice when installing metropolitan and access networks. The minimal cable dimensions also improve the transport and handling processes.
