Datwyler Aerial Solution

Overhead solution for fibre broadband expansion


With this Aerial Solution, the micro cables are installed in non-metallic UV- and frost-resistant micro-ducts on the existing overhead infrastructure – i.e. on telecommunication masts or power poles. Apart from cost savings and a fast rollout, the advantage of this system is that it uses the same network architecture and the same network elements (BEP, OTO, cables), and can be installed by the same firms which install the conventional overhead power or telecommunications network.

The solution comprises 31 millimetre-thick multi-ducts suspended from steel tape (total height: 44 mm), 10 millimetre-thick drop ducts for connecting buildings, a branch-off duct closure, a roof entry, and various clamps, fixing components and the requisite tools.

Datwyler recommends the use of non-metallic, non-armoured and longitudinally watertight FO Outdoor Micro and S-Micro cables with external diameters of between 2.4 and 8.4 millimetres. These are available with 12 to 216 fibres as required.


● For a simple and cost-efficient Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH) rollout in rural areas
● For fibre broadband expansion without the need for time-consuming and expensive groundwork

System components

● Micro-duct bundles for pole mounting – micro ducts: 12x 5/3.5 mm (outer), 1x 14/10 mm (inner)
● Micro-duct 5/3.5 mm, single, for the connection to the building
● Branch-off duct closure, watertight, for the protection of up to 3 branches
● Anchoring clamps (2 versions) to fix bundles and single ducts to end or corner point poles
● Requisite pole fixing brackets
● Suspension clamps (2 versions) to fix bundles and single ducts to middle poles
● Stainless steel tape (and requisite buckle)
● House roof entry kit (heat shrink sealing)
