3M’s One Pass Mini Fiber Pathway takes discreet fiber installation inside the living unit

3M has introduced the 3M One Pass Mini Fiber Pathway, a single-fiber, adhesive-backed, surface-mount cable pathway and drop cable system designed to enable telecom service providers and property owners to take fiber beyond the hallway and into living units discreetly and with minimal subscriber disruption.

The company’s One Pass Fiber Pathway hallway system, introduced two years ago, enables FTTP network installation for MDUs with a horizontal cable pathway and drop cable installed in just one pass around a hallway perimeter with an estimated installation savings of 35 percent per floor.

This latest addition to the One Pass family connects to a hallway distribution cable and is routed inside a living unit to a wall outlet positioned near an ONT. The One Pass Mini employs exclusive 3M adhesive technology, which ensures reliable installation on a variety of surfaces, including painted or sealed concrete where stapling cables isn’t an option.

The One Pass Mini enables quiet installation, maintains signal integrity, and delivers a high-performance broadband system in a low-profile package, installed in just one pass, according to a company representative. Universal Communications Group recently used the One Pass Mini Fiber Pathway and One Pass Fiber Pathway to install a fiber network in Pacific Park, a 162-unit condominium community in Sydney, Australia.

“We chose the One Pass solution from 3M because it was the only solution that offered fast installation with minimal disruption to our residents and an unobtrusive design,” explains Jack Mazaraki, Pacific Park's consulting architect. “The fiber to the unit network is delivering an excellent TV service with minimal aesthetic impact. The platform also provides a solid platform for the future delivery of additional services to residents, such as IP-based access control and security options.”

Together, the 3M One Pass Fiber Pathway hallway system and 3M One Pass Mini Fiber Pathway is designed as “a total package for complete, cost-effective, and aesthetically pleasing MDU fiber system inside and outside the living unit,” reveals a company representative. Both fiber pathway systems include the field-terminated 3M No Polish Connector.
