Buckeye Cablevision has chosen to work with Kabel-X USA to deploy a fiber-to-the-home trial in its Toledo, OH system. With this trial Buckeye will transition an existing subdivision to a fiber-to-the-home solution without construction of new facilities in the easements.

Kabel-X USA has pioneered a technology process that removes the coax cable center conductor and dielectric material providing operators with a conduit through which they can easily deploy fiber optic cable without costly new construction or excavation and upgrade of existing lines.

Kabel-X’s plant conversion approach uses a proprietary lubricant under pressure to separate the dielectric within the coax cable from the outer aluminum shield. The dielectric and center conductor are quickly pulled out, leaving an empty conduit for placement of fiber optic cable. This process expedites installation time, minimizes costs and requires minimal new permitting.

“We see the Kabel-X technology as an innovative tool that will allow us to cost effectively deploy a fiber-to-the-home architecture in areas currently served by a traditional hybrid fiber coax (HFC) network.” said Joe Jensen, Buckeye’s CTO, in a statement.
