The Swedish governmental agency for innovation systems VINNOVA is investing an additional 1.5 million on a new method for fiber installations
Only sixmonths after the first million SEK contribution Vinnova has now decided to invest another 1.5 million Swedish crowns in DellCrons innovation MTT (Micro trenching Technology). The invention makes it possible to install broadband with only a thin slot in the asphalt, which saves time, money and the environment.
- Pure revolution for broadband deployment, says Jeannette Waax at Fiber Optic Valley in Hudiksvall.
Is it really necessary to dig up sidewalks and the streets to get broadband in residential areas? No, not anymore. With DellCrons new Swedish invention, only a narrow track in the asphalt is needed. Vinnova is now pressing with extra funds to get the product on the market.
- The MTT method makes the work twice as fast and half as expensive compared to traditional digging, says DellCron’s Chief Operating Officer Mr. Gustavsson.
Already four years ago the Swedish company DellCron predicted that residential areas would be a new large market in need of more effective methods for installation of fiber cable.
The idea of micro trenching Technology (MTT) system emerged, a new method based on milling a narrow track in the asphalt, with the diamond tool, and putting down the duct pipes in one single operation. Soon after this, the track is filled again with a stable and waterproof mass. The method is patent pending.
- We have followed DellCrons development for a year. Their innovation is very interesting and is on track to set a new
standard for fiber installation in the urban environment, says Jeannette Waax, Business Development Manager Fiber Optic Valley.
Last spring DellCron was granted a million SEK by the Vinnova program “Forska och Väx” to complete the product. Now, Vinnova has put in to another 1.5 million SEK to further strengthen the concept, namely the documentation part.
Vinnovas justification for new decision is that the DellCron project is “innovative and strategically important for Swedish ICT (information and communication technologies).”
- It is highly unusual for innovation funds to be granted twice in the same year. We are very proud of this and assume that Vinnova, just as we, see the enormous market potential of MTT, says Mr. Gustavsson.
