MaxCell Innerduct recently unveiled Micro MaxCell, the latest product in its innerduct system product line.
The company unveiled the product at the BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando, F.L.
The specially-created flexible innerduct was designed to fit into small applications, between 1 and 2 inch conduits, with less friction and lower pulling tensions.
Micro MaxCell, which is designed for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) projects, is designed to reduce or eliminate the number of conduits required in new construction and enable overlay of cables in already occupied conduit space. These benefits can cut costs and speed up project completion time.
MaxCell's textile innerduct solutions, including Micro MaxCell, are designed to provide a more cost-efficient and technologically advanced alternative to traditional rigid innerduct systems, providing more flexibility in network applications.
"Micro MaxCell is a terrific solution for existing smaller ducts where multiple cables and drops are necessary," says Mike Miller, vice president for MaxCell. "The small size and textile flexibility allow for easy network changes, especially in multi-dwelling units and FTTH build-outs."
Micro MaxCell is available in three-cell, two-cell and single-cell applications. The product line comes pre-lubed for easier installation in either underground or aerial duct applications.
"There are more than 600 FTTH communities in the U.S., with more systems predicted over the next several years," says Miller. "To accommodate this growing trend, network operators need a small, flexible innerduct product that's reliable and easy to install, so they can complete the job quickly and accurately and move on to the next. Micro MaxCell was designed to address those needs."
More than 150 million feet of MaxCell innerduct has been installed around the world ion a variety of applications, including universities, corporate and hospital campuses.
MaxCell Innerduct is based in Wadsworth, O.H. For more information visit www.maxcell.us.
