Fibre systems

Solutions for housing developments


Fibre systems form part of a next generation network which is revolutionary for new community housing developments.

The recent introduction of fibre-based integrated reception systems (using optical signal transmission) has enabled a wider variety of configurations to be employed. In particular, fibre can successfully carry signals over a much longer distance than conventional copper cables, so the requirement for central aerials, antennas and distribution equipment to be relatively close to all homes served by the IRS, is no longer necessary.

This means that large housing developments, with individual buildings spread over a wide area can be accommodated in a single (fibre-only or mixed copper/fibre) IRS, with substantial cost savings in the initial outlay, installation and maintenance, but with no corresponding reduction of facilities or reception quality.
