News and Business

Manufacturer of pre-connectorised, blown fibre cable and ducted network solutions Emtelle, has launched its new Fibre Termination Facility in response to the rising demand for pre-connectorised fibre solutions globally – enabling operators to deploy FTTH faster and more efficiently.

The opening of the Fibre Termination Facility, which is located at Emtelle’s Centre of Excellence in Hawick, Scotland, comes as homes and businesses demand to be connected quicker and more effectively than ever before. The role of the facility will be to cut and polish the fibre, so that it is readily available for operators to connect directly to customers’ homes. This specialised process is the first of its kind to be implemented inhouse within a European fibre cabling and microduct manufacturing facility – providing a unique and enhanced offering to operators across the globe.

“As the demand for fibre broadband continues to grow at an exponential rate in many countries, operators are under increasing pressure to lay fibre straight to the doors of end-users faster than ever before,” said Colin Kirkpatrick, Solutions Director at Emtelle. “The launch of our brand-new Fibre Termination Facility is pivotal in satisfying this increased need, providing our customers and operators with not only a high-quality product but also a highly efficient turnaround. We place a high value on customer service at Emtelle, and the opening of the facility further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of today’s pre-connectorised solution market. It was also a privilege to have Jamie Hepburn open the facility. At Emtelle, we pride ourselves on innovation, and it was great to have this recognised by such a well-respected individual within Scottish Government.”

The Fibre Termination Facility was opened by Jamie Hepburn, the Minister for Business, Fair Work & Skills (pictured). Hepburn is visiting businesses across the region who are showing innovative manufacturing techniques and have plans for further development.
