Hawick, November 16th 2015
CRALEY group announced the completion of the initial phase of the core fibre network of its first FTTH installation in Spain using the innovative Atlantis Hydrotec® solution. CRALEY selected the new Emtelle product RTRYVA for use in the system in conjunction with the Atlantis T Series product. Phase 1 of the project included the provision of an end-to-end core fibre network extending across 16km of rural terrain situated in the northern part of Osona, in the Barcelona Province of Spain. The Atlantis Hydrotec T Series is a simple but cost-effective “pipe in a pipe” solution that uses the freshwater pipe system as the outer conduit for the fibre broadband network. The micro duct for the installation was specially manufactured for CRALEY by Emtelle using WRAS approved materials.
Colin Kirkpatrick, UK & Business Development Manager stated ‘Emtelle are excited to see our Fibreflow brand of products being used in such an innovative system and we are extremely impressed with the way this solution is deployed. We look forward to working with Craley Group and supplying products for the Atlantis Hydrotec system for many years to come’
Mike Parker, CTO of CRALEY group stated, “By utilising an existing water pipe infrastructure we have been able to dramatically reduce the costs, upheaval and timescales of a project of this kind, which involved particularly variable terrain. The Emtelle RTRYVA perfectly fitted our technical requirements and allowed us to use the micro duct with pre-installed fibre units, to save additional time and cost in blowing in fibre at a later stage. We were very pleased with the performance using the RTRYVA product and we achieved some remarkable installation speeds, with up to an equivalent of 3,000 metres per day, and have demonstrated that 1,000 to 2,000 metres per day as an average is easily possible. We will also shortly be installing of links from the core network out to individual properties. This will include fibre connections to homes, farms and smallholdings, some of which are up to 1,500m away from the core network, and we shall be using the Emtelle products for this aspect as well.”
