Fibre to the premises (FTTP) is a pure fibre connection – all the way from the exchange to a home or business. It offers speeds of up to 1Gbps.
We’re making it easier to provide FTTP with a range of new simple components.
Connectorised Block Terminals, or CBTs, come in three handy sizes, 4, 8 and 12 ports, and can provide connectivity at our street poles (overhead) or underground.
These versatile units are packed with great features, including:
- fully sealed terminals with downward facing ports to protect fibres from the weather and dirt;
- “plug and play” fibre connector ports for speedy end customer connections and a test access facility to enable installation and service checks.
All our CBTs are factory tested and have pre-terminated cable. This improves our network build quality and makes for faster installation, because there is no need for specialist fibre splicing skills and equipment, so more of our engineers can get the job done. All good news for customers and our roll-out of FTTP.
