HoFiS speeds deployment of fiber optic networks in Marburg
Optical connectivity specialist HUBER+SUHNER is helping the German city, Marburg to roll out its high speed broadband services with a unique Home Fibering System (HoFiS). The system enables the town’s residents to self-install their fiber optic home networks. The simple but innovative HoFiS system speeds the time to deploy fiber optic networks in homes.

The public utilities (Stadtwerke Marburg) in the picturesque German university town, Marburg are currently installing fiber optic cabling throughout the city. Huber+Suhner has been chosen to provide a self-install plug-and-play solution that enables rapid deployment within homes and apartments.

Fast, self-installation of fiber in the home
The utility company provides HOFIS free-of-charge to the residents. As soon as buildings are connected to the town’s fiber optic FTTH system, HOFIS can be deployed in the houses and apartments. Homeowners and tenants can complete their home installation when they wish. They can decide where they want the junction box mounted and where they want the fiber optic cable laid from the initial home entry point.
 
Stefan Koch, project manager at Stadtwerke Marburg, said: "Self-installation really works. Everyone benefits from our collaboration with HUBER+SUHNER. We as the local authority do not have to arrange appointments, only to find ourselves in front of locked doors. We don’t have to move furniture or hold long and difficult conversations about the siting of the boxes.”

Simple but innovative plug-and-play system
HoFiS provides exceptionally easy installation of fiber into the home. The system combines the Huber+Suhner optical socket (OTS2) with prefabricated low-bend-installation cables (class G.657 A2). The innovative dust-proof packaging made from recyclable PET plastic not only protects the system during transportation, but also makes it easy to quickly de-reel the cable. This plug-and-play system eliminates time-consuming splicing in the home. HoFiS is available with a variety of cable lengths and fiber counts and comes with the FITH-typical connectors BLINK, LC or SC .
 
Christian Sutter, HUBER+SUHNER‘s FMS Product Manager, said: “This is an exciting proposition for any operator wishing to speed up its roll-out of FTTH. It removes the need for expensive and time-consuming door-to-door installation by the operator and empowers the individual resident with a very simple solution to install their fiber optic home networks. The residents can choose flexibly when and where they locate the fibre in the home network (FITH).”
