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.
QuikPush can be successfully pushed through 5 mm (0.2 in) holes and micro-duct 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 micro-duct 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.
