Etisalat’s/du Guidelines for Data Cabling Installation
Etisalat’s Wiring Design Guide allows wiring architectures for different types of buildings. (Call Today: +971 4 234 7303) The Etisalat guide also allows the size and allowable locations for the Main Telecommunication Room (MTR), and cable control. According to Etisalat, each room or complex of each villa should have a main telecommunications room (MTR). Etisalat’s incoming multi-core fiber optic cable must terminate at MTR. Every single unit should have a cabling cabinet. These cabinets should be the central location connecting all Cat.6 cabling outlets within that unit.
Du data cabling design requirements are the same as those of Etisalat. They have similar requirements, but there are some important technical differences. For example, Du Telecom speaks for the LC/APC interface for the connectors. Whereas, Etisalat speaks for SC/APC interface. Due requires fusion splicing of fiber cable with pigtail. However, Etisalat requires mechanical splicing of the connectors. There are a few other minor differences with regards to the MTR’s design and rack cabinet dimensions.
1. FIBER OPTIC SM MULTICORE CABLE
A tight-Buffered Distribution cable is designed specifically for indoor distribution applications requiring low to higher core counts. Available as Multi-mode or Single-mode (either G.652D, G.657A compliant), it provides the bend-insensitivity and robustness essential to a successful FTTH deployment. Circular construction and a Kevlar yarn strength member make this cable ideal for indoor deployments where the riser and/or containment spaces are limited. It is Riser Rated and complies with UL1666.
2. INDOOR FO DROP CABLE
Indoor drop fiber cable is designed and manufactured to the highest standards. Available as single-mode, it provides the twist-insensitivity and robustness needed for a successful FTTx deployment. Aramid Reinforced Plastic Rod Strength Member provides more than enough strength to pull long lengths of this cable while significantly reducing the cable’s weight. It is UL certified (OFN).
3. FO RACK MOUNT SPLITTER
The FO Rackmount Splitter panel is a vital component in any GPoN/FTTx infrastructure. Designed in conjunction with leading Service Providers, this compact, integrated panel offers pre-connectorized presentation of the input and output ports on the front of the panel. Each port is clearly labeled.
4. FO RACK MOUNT PATCH PANEL
Fiber optic patch panels are 19-inch rack-mountable enclosures for connecting and terminating optical fibers in an indoor environment. Available with single-mode pigtails, splice accessories, and adapters, the solution provides an optical channel that is guaranteed to conform to the ISO/IEC 11801 international standard for structured cabling and is UL certified.
5. FO SC/APC PATCH CORDS
Fiber Optic patch cords are state-of-art products that are made through advanced polishing and assembly procedures. The single-mode connectors are Angled Physical Contact (APC) polish. Different connector types may be combined to produce ‘hybrid’ patch cords. All patch cords are tested to ensure that the highest quality standards are met.
6. WALL MOUNT CABINET
Basic frame structure with a maximum loading of 60kg. It has easy access side panels, top or bottom cable entry. Wall mountable. Optional casters and leveling feet are available for floor mount installation. An optional 120mm axial motor is available. Available in 6U, 9U, 12U, 15U, 16U, 18U, 22U and 27U
7. FIBER OPTIC OUTLET/MICRO ODF
A fiber optic outlet is installed inside a customer’s room to provide a fiber termination point and housing for optical adapters and connectors. The FOO is used as an interface/interconnection point using a patch cord between the fiber optic cabling system and the ONT (Optical Network Terminal Equipment) inside the customer’s building. FOO supports termination, splicing and storage operations for customer premises fiber optic cabling systems. The FOO is simple in design yet provides ample workspace and fiber management – the box is engineered with all fiber routing supporting the minimum turn-radius philosophy to ensure signal integrity.
