Friday Sky watch: Auckland Sky Tower, telecoms


Emtelle's fibreflow has become the Fibre Optic system of choice in the Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand as it allows the easiest of upgrade paths at the lowest entry cost.

The Sky Tower is 328m to the tip of its antenna mast and most fibre optic connections are to the communications deck at 182m, this is below the observation deck which is at 190m. There are then links from the communications deck at level 47 to more transmitter aerials at 192m.
fibreflow product runs from manholes outside the Sky Tower up to 600m away where it connects to the OSP optical fibre network of Telecom New Zealand for example.
