HUBER+SUHNER offers RESA connectivity line for FTTH self-installation

May 9, 2022
The modular connectivity line is designed to enable residential FTTH broadband customers to partially install their own fiber connection.

HUBER+SUHNER have unveiled the RESA line, a two-member range of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) interconnect products. The modular connectivity line is designed to enable residential FTTH broadband customers to partially install their own fiber connection.

The modular RESA line includes the RESA Splice Closure (SC) box, which network deployers field underground in the street while passing the premises of potential subscribers. Once a subscriber signs on for service, he or she can the pre-connectorized Building Entry Point (RESA BEP) module and a pre-terminated Q-ODC-2 mini cable to install the final meters of the FTTH connection within the boundaries of their property. HUBER+SUHNER asserts that customers will not need fiber-optic expertise, merely “simple instructions,” to perform this task.

The arrangement saves time and costs, the company says. “The design greatly reduces carriers’ time and resources involved in coordinating FTTH installations at multiple properties,” said Daniel Berz, market manager for fixed access network at HUBER+SUHNER. “Its plug-and-play functionality makes for easy installation, which streamlines the process and allows for individual adaptions based on connectivity demands. It is really ideal for FTTH rollouts in rural or suburban residential areas, where there are plenty of single or dual family houses.

“We are excited to see RESA accelerate FTTH deployments to support a key goal for the industry,” Berz continued. “The convenience and flexibility to subscribers will also greatly contribute to carriers’ network rollout business as they can deliver more FTTH deployments in less time and at a lower cost.”
