The Kabel-X Technology Replaces Copper Coax Cable from Digital Networks
By Anamika Singh, TMCnet Contributor
Kabel-X (News - Alert) USA, a provider of for coax and fiber optic cable line conversion, has started a technology process that quickly and seamlessly removes and replaces copper coax cable from digital networks, reducing maintenance costs and procedures.
It also allows operators a conduit which can deploy upgraded fiber optic cabling without the need of excavation and replacement of existing lines. Kabel-X also experimented their proprietary technology in other countries with cable operators , and there has been a good response for repair, replace and upgrade their plant across local systems.
The Kabel-X process allows a fiber pathway that quickly converts hundreds of feet per pull. The process is suited for various applications like fiber-deep network build-outs, challenging crossings or pathways, in vertical high rises and MDUs.
The technology uses a proprietary lubricant with pressure to separate the dielectric within the coax cable from the outer aluminum shield. The dielectric and center conductor are then pulled out, making empty conduit for easy replacement or repair. This process saves on time, cost, complexities and requires minimal new permits to be pulled.
Kabel-X's patented copper/coaxial cable replacement method has been used in over 120 countries, improving worldwide television and Internet delivery networks by fiber optic cable conversion.
The Kabel-X process gives a streamlined solution and CATV/Telco coaxial cable and telecommunications copper conductors are replaced with faster and higher bandwidth fiber optic cable. Copper cable conversion is not vision of the future.
