XG-optic boxes: a design endorsed by FTTA professionals

Telenco's XG-optic FTTA boxes are the latest additions to the Telenco brand dedicated to mobile networks. They ensure smooth, intuitive optical interconnection, whatever the installation configuration. Available in pre-terminated and pre-terminated/splice versions, they stand out for their design based on a pragmatic approach to specific field conditions. To develop this product, Telenco opted for a process that takes into account the current needs of mobile operators and installers, as well as future technological advances from equipment manufacturers.

To achieve this, a design strategy based on three major axes was adopted.

A pragmatic design process

The first step in the development process was to take a close look at the current needs of operators. This analysis involved close collaboration with players in the sector, enabling an in-depth understanding of the tools and technologies already in use. To complete this theoretical understanding, on-site studies were carried out in collaboration with field engineers during the installation and swap of mobile equipment. By accompanying these professionals in the field, our teams were able to observe the challenges and demands they faced in real-life conditions. This immersion in the field enabled us to validate each of our innovations step by step, and to propose practical solutions that are adapted both to the constraints of mobile site installation and to future technological developments.

Extreme testing for optimum quality

Developing products for on-site mobile applications requires a rigorous approach. Thorough tests were required to validate the product's compliance: IP (water and dust tightness), IK (shock resistance), mechanical wiring tests, thermal variation tests, cold and heat tests, as well as ageing and UV exposure tests.

To guarantee the highest level of quality, XG-optic boxes were subjected to extreme stress. An unprecedented campaign of tests for this type of equipment was carried out in a one-of-a-kind climatic wind tunnel: the Jules Verne wind tunnel at the CSTB. The XG-optic boxes, installed individually or in pairs or groups of three, were subjected to "high wind" tests of 250 km/h in all directions. They met the challenge brilliantly!

A solution designed for tomorrow's mobile technologies

With its XG-optic FTTA boxes, Telenco offers a solution that can be integrated into all rollout configurations and is simple to implement. Telenco's patented coupling system means that they can be combined in a matter of seconds, without the need for special tools, at any stage in the life of the network. By anticipating operators' future needs and incorporating scalable features, these boxes are destined to remain at the forefront of innovation in a constantly changing environment.

The success of the methodology adopted for the development of XG-optic FTTA boxes encourages us to replicate the approach with the development of two new versions designed to optimise energy cabling and the protection of optical cable overlengths.
