Micronet Air Blown Micro Cable System

Image

When deploying metropolitan and access networks, air-blown micro cable technology offers great benefits.

The Micronet microduct system 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 Ericsson Micronet Air Blown Cable system consists of

  • Micro Cables
  • Microducts and Multiducts
  • Duct Joints and Duct Accessories

Micronet Microducts

Our Microducts are available for both indoor and outdoor installations.

Thick walled microduct assemblies

Thick Walled Microduct Assemblies (Data Sheet)
The thick-walled microduct bundles consist of a number of micro ducts with an inner low friction surface that enables installation of airblown fiber units or fiber optic micro cables such as the Ericsson Ribbonet® and the Ericsson Micronet systems. The thick inner wall of the microducts allow for installation directly into the ground without the need for additional protection.
