Emtelle has entered into a strategic partnership with Deutsche Glasfaser, a leading FTTH provider in Germany for a contract totalling €63 million for the supply of a range of tube bundles and fibre cables.
Emtelle, with its Headquarters in Hawick, Scotland, is a global leader in the manufacturing of blown fibre, and ducted solutions.
Combining two market leaders in FTTH deployment and solution manufacture, the long-term agreement secures the supply of Emtelle’s complete passive FibreFlow solution; from minicables and microducts from exchange to cabinet, and the distribution of Emtelle’s pre-installed fibre systems and tube bundles from cabinet to home. For the final home connection, a range of customer entry systems, termination boxes and patchcords will complement the entire package.
Targeting rural regions of Germany, Deutsche Glasfaser has already begun the deployment of an ultra-fast broadband network using Emtelle solutions in Germany’s largest state. The deployment will now progress to western Germany with plans to expand northwards and to the east of the country.
