Conduit simplifies installation and management of multiple cables in single duct

CommScope’s ConQuest conduit design for multiple cable installations, capable of providing additional pathways for future use.

Hickory, N.C., April 13, 2011—Commscope Inc., a provider of infrastructure solutions for communications networks, has introduced a new ConQuest conduit design capable of simplifying installation and management of multiple cables in a single duct.

The new ConQuest Detectable SubDuct conduit, with its innovative design, targets underground cable networks having current and future cable capacity requirements. As a simple and cost-effective solution, it allows end-users to install a single-duct solution today that provides additional capacity for future cable installations. This forward planning eliminates the need to place additional dedicated conduit later as the network expands. Each separate pathway is capable of carrying individual cables while protecting against natural or construction-related damage.

“CommScope’s SubDuct conduit establishes a throughway for end-users to place multiple cables independently during a single installation,” said Douglas Wells, director, Broadband, Hybrid Fiber Coax, CommScope. “With the company’s proven track record for designing award-winning conduit solutions for our customers, we believe this design provides them additional options when installing today’s rapidly changing and expanding networks.”

ConQuest Detectable SubDuct’s design allows it to be customized with various amounts of three-quarter inch chambers within a single jacket, providing easy installation and allowing the use of industry-standard couplers to match any end-user’s requirements. Made from high-density polyethylene, the Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR) 11-rated inner chambers provide ample protection for all cables and are ideally sized for the installation of standard all-dielectric fiber cables up to 144-count. The robust design of ConQuest Detectable SubDucts permits the use of standard fiber-optic cables construction rather than micro cables.
