Description

Hello here, we are Radynet a WISP from Czech Republic with around 3000 customers and this is our first attempt to use fiber instead of wireless technology. We connected 71 houses and 64 flats in a town of Nezvěstice in Czech Republic. We reused trenches made by municipality for burying down the power cables in the town which made this deployment a bit easier and cheaper. To save even more we built a DIY fiber blowing machine and bought a really cheap fusion splicer from China, surprisingly it works quite ok. We decided to use UFiber as we are basically rookies in the fiber world so the easiness of setup is a huge plus.

 

UBNT will probably release our case study soon so this thread is just about sharing some more pictures and discussing the details possibly.

Just curious-- blown fiber seems less popular in the US; what made you go that route?

What is your experience with the cheap fusion splicer? What did you pay for that?

Hi @Aaarrrgggh and @bhbs

Blown fiber - We found this to be the easiest and cheapest method. The longest fiber path we have is 300 M only so that also helped to choose blowing over another techniques. 

Fusion splicer - We bought it from china for about 20k CZK (which is around 950 USD). It's a 2D splicer only but we found it sufficient. The only problems we had were:

- We needed to send both splicers to RMA as they stopped working afer half a year

- Sometimes you need to "solder" the joint two times or three times to get reliable connectoin but that's just occasional

- Doesn't work well in lower temperatures (around 0 °C)

Do you have any more information on your DIY fibre blowing tool? It looks interesting.

@MJ-radynet

You should try AFL splicers.  I picked a two up on eBay for $800 and $1,200 USD.  Never have any fusion issues.  The only time I have issues is if I accidentally break the splice while trying to put the splice sleeve on.  I found the key is to make sure there is a little horizontal stress on the splice, so that it can't break before the sleeve is heated/sealed to the fibers.

How did you "reuse" the municipality trench for power?  Did they run their power conduit, partially fill, and then let you put your stuff on top of that?
