FiComms offers FiSpy offers EU distribution rights to Emtelle

extKiwi outfit FiComms has offered the European distribution rights of FiSpy – a new product that uses smart technology to detect micro duct faults –  to Emtelle.

FiSpy, developed by New Zealand-based FiComms, uses a patented process to identify a micro duct or micro ducts within a multi duct environment. This removes the risk of incorrect identification and cutting of ducts, reducing the time and cost currently spent on fault finding.

Emtell’s International Business Development Manager Scott Modha said that maintaining a reliable fibre network is essential and detecting network problems quickly and efficiently is crucial when it comes to minimising downtime, and reducing installation time.

“Previously, this might have involved a large workforce manually looking for the fault but FiSpy takes the guesswork out of fault finding and lessens the labour involved, generating immediate cost savings for our customers and reducing the likelihood of expensive reworks in the future.”

Other benefits of FiSpy include low cost of ownership and maintenance, high user-friendliness and easy transportation, with the product featuring a compact design, interchangeable head sizes (5mm, 7mm and 8mm), an IP67 ruggedised case, simple LED indication and one-button operation, the firm claims.

The FiSpy will join Emtelle’s full portfolio of products on display at FTTH Conference, including the “popular” retractable fibre cable RTRYVA, and a pre-connectorised fibre-in-tube solution QWKconnect – both simplifying the ease of installation, and reducing installation and maintenance costs, it’s claimed.
