PPC QuikPush® Cable Assembly
QuikPush® cable assemblies offer a flexible, pushable pre-terminated fiber optic drop solution for fast and reliable FTTX deployments. At just 3 mm outer diameter, the Miniflex® drop cable is also one of the smallest cables in the industry. Manufactured using the patented Miniflex® grooving process and utilizing the Balistix pushable connector technology, QuikPush has a number of advantages over alternative last-drop solutions.
The Balistix pushable connector enables the pre-connectorized QuikPush cable to be installed through microducts and small holes that are typical of most FTTX scenarios. QuikPush can be installed without using large conduits or drilling big holes through the customer’s wall. At the other end of the drop cable, the connector options are unlimited; including SC, LC, FC, Balistix LC & SC and even no connector.
QuikPush can be successfully pushed through 5 mm (0.2 in) holes and microduct bores as small as 3.5 mm (9/64 in). Hand push distances vary according to bend frequency and duct quality; e.g. QuikPush combined with PPC microduct exceeds 100 m (328 ft) in a route with 8 x 90° bends. With air assistance, the route can be extended to 12x bends and up to 1 km (3,280 ft). The rugged nature of the Miniflex® cable, in tandem with the pre-terminated connector, reduces the cost of fiber deployments as well as the intrinsic skill and difficulty of handling and connecting customer drop cables.
PPC’s QuikPush® cable assembly is a flexible, pushable pre-terminated fiber optic drop solution that utilizes our Miniflex fiber
cable and allows for connectorization on one or both ends. QuikPush has a number of advantages over alternative last-drop
solutions for fast and reliable FTTX deployments: Miniflex fiber cable and Balistix connectors. At just 3 mm outer diameter, the
Miniflex fiber cable is one of the smallest cables in the industry. Miniflex cable can be installed easily and quickly by pushing,
pulling or blowing. PPC’s Balistix pushable connectors enable the pre-connectorized fiber cable to be installed through microducts
and small holes that are typical of most FTTX scenarios. PPC’s connector options are unlimited, including SC; LC; FC; Balistix LC
and SC; and no connector.
