Fibre to the X - FTTX


HellermannTyton provides a complete end to end range of Fibre to the X (FTTX) solutions, delivering fibre from the Point of Presence (PoP) to the building and through to the customer termination point.

HellermannTyton have designed a range of outlets, distribution boxes, customer connection points and connectorised wall boxes that, combined with the fibre splice closures, provides full end to end FTTX solutions for both new developments and existing buildings. Depending on the size of the building, be it a large or small Multi Dwelling Unit (MDU) or a Single Dwelling Unit (SDU), this range of products offers a wide range of options in fibre connectivity and distribution.

The sealed fibre splice closures from HellermannTyton protect the fibre management systems from adverse environmental conditions whilst maintaining ready access for effective cable installation. The fibres are housed in space saving modular units that minimise network disruption and have been designed to allow further modules to be added at a later date for increased capacity, ensuring a future proof design.

More customers are demanding maximum flexibility and a modular approach to cable management systems that will fit into existing and future networks. All closures have therefore been designed to cater for this requirement to accommodate the wide variety of fibre optic cables that are now available including loose tube, compact, ribbon and blown fibre / cable applications.

FTTX Applications

Delivering fibre to the ...

FTTX is the blanket term used to describe fibre deployed in a number of different applications or scenarios. Fibre optic connectivity can be found in almost every sector and the demand for fibre is growing at pace. HellermannTyton offer an extensive range of fibre solutions, including closures, wall boxes, street cabinets and fibre distribution boxes, all designed to perform in a wide range of FTTX applications...

Motorway Motorway

The Highways Agency operates a dedicated network that connects thousands of roadside devices to a network of traffic control centres across the country. Largely made up of fibre optic cables that run along the length of the motorways, the network links more than 14,000 message signs, emergency telephones, CCTV cameras and traffic monitoring systems to the control centres. Fibre optic closures are used to distribute the fibre connections between the control centres and the motorway monitoring and communications equipment.

Wind/Solar Farm Wind/Solar Farm

Wind turbines and solar panels are widely used in the renewable energy market. Wind turbines use a wide range of sensors that monitor wind speed, direction, and temperature. This information is recorded and sent back to a control station where the positioning of the turbine can be managed. Similarly, solar panel sensors also report back a range of information including solar strength, solar energy consumed and amount of electricity generated.

Metropolitan Metropolitan

In built up town and city locations where multiple fibres are required to service residential and business properties, HellermannTyton offer a number of aerial, burial, wall box and street cabinet solutions to meet these demands.

Home - Rural Home - Rural

Rural Fibre to the Home delivery has seen rapid growth over recent years. Across the UK, there are thousands of homes and businesses in remote rural locations that cannot be connected by the mainstream service providers. Independent service providers have been formed to deliver fibre broadband to these rural locations by working closely with the local communities and land owners.

Read our case study on Wessex Internet using Fibre to the Mast to supply fibre to rural communities.

Fibre to the Mast Fibre to the Mast

Fibre to the Mast enables high capacity and flexible LTE deployment to meet the rapidly growing high bandwidth demands of today’s mobile networks. Fibre to the Mast can also be a cost effective solution to the rural broadband challenge, providing an efficient way of delivering fast internet access to locations with low population density.

Railway Railway

Fibre within Rail networks has become an integral component for signalling and monitoring hardware. High performing fibre is essential for rail signalling, providing a safe and efficient service for passengers. Fibre is also used to relay data from sensors that monitor the condition and performance of the physical rail tracks. HellermannTyton fibre optic closures can be used to distribute fibre connectivity to the active equipment up and down the railway network.

Case Studies

Case Study - Wessex Internet

Case Study - Wessex Internet

Wessex Internet is a partnership co-founded by James Gibson Fleming and Matthew Skipsey in 2010. Wessex Internet are the providers of a superfast fixed wireless broadband service, using a Fibre to the Mast (FTTM) deployment.

Co-founder, James Gibson Fleming comments,

"Our objective is to provide as many small rural communities in the area with superfast fibre broadband. There is a wide area without fibre provision, communities considered too small for BT and other Alt-Nets. We are passionate about getting our quality service to the remotest and worst serviced areas.”
