8 Three Stage In-Building Design Concept

9 Challenges facing In-Building installation  How to cost effectively bring the fibre from the ODB into the building and into the apartment  Considerations for ensuring:  Professional cable management  Reduced equipment footprint  Timely installation  There is not always 100% customer uptake, so further consideration for managing:  Meet short term demand (PtP) OR  Provide for future customers (Splice)  Finding the optimum solution when planning for a variety of In-Building designs is the challenge

10 Stage 1 : Fibre to the Premises  Existing installation methods require microduct & cable  Traditional deployed in PtP format with single cable from the ODB  Time consuming to install the microduct and then pull/blow the fibre cable  Potential life cycle issues when deploying outdoor microduct  Flexible microduct life span is less than 2 years  Not scalable in medium to high end MDU environments  ODB cable management becoming un-managable

11 Stage 1 : Fibre to the Premises  Miniflex enables low risk and cost effective fibre connection  UV resistant in the most demanding situations (+85°C)  Miniflex can be deployed outdoors without the need for microduct  Lightweight and compact for durable installation using only wall clips  Aesthetically pleasing installation that reduces the visual footprint  Reduces the installation time which vastly increases the ROI

12 Stage 1 : Fibre to the Premises 1.The fiber breaks out from the curb to the premises and into an ODB  This is generally preformed by the Service Deployment team 2.Existing ODB has grown organically and will cause issues in the future  Harsh Saudi environment will lead to early end of life if remaining outdoors 3.Revised ODB installation method could bring all wiring indoors  Single connection from the Outside ODB to the Indoor IDB 1. FTTP ODB Location 2. Existing PtP Install 3. Moving the ODB Indoors

13 Stage 1: Fibre inside the Premises 1.Connecting the ODB into the IDB/IDF located in the building 2.Breaking out with a Pre-Terminated Miniflex Lead 3.Removing need to splice in the field with ‘plug & play’ solution 4.Brings the Point of Failure inside the building and away from damage  Now fully protected from harsh weather and extends the life 2.

24 QNBN Proven Success Doha, Qatar : April 2014

25 QNBN Case Study  QNBN have a nationwide project to retro-fit fiber optic cable into existing infrastructure in approximately 100 apartment blocks  Ericsson has been selected as the integrator for the project  20mm electrical conduit in place  Cat-6 cable already in the existing conduits  Floor level runs on average <25m  Blown fiber killing the business case  Ericsson used Miniflex LSZH 4-core fiber cable  1 st Pushable fiber demonstration by Ericsson  Supported locally by two M2fx engineers

26 QNBN Scope  Miniflex LSZH 3mm cable complete with 2 pushable clip on brass dongle  Hand pushed into existing 20mm electrical conduits, which are populated with existing Cat-6 cable  The typical route was estimated at 15-25 metres with 2 or 3 x 90° bends and at least 1 conduit join

27 QNBN Performance  Miniflex was pushed by hand into 15 apartments up to a distance of 25m  No air blown installation equipment was used  No physical installation equipment was used  No technical skill level was required  Less than 5 minutes training from the M2FX engineers was needed  Ericsson installation teams performed the demonstration  25 QNBN technicians present and were involved in the pilot  Senior management handled the cable and undertook pushable demo  Splicing performed in each apartment with 0.05dB loss  100% connectivity and no faults detected after connection test  QNBN 100% happy and positive towards M2FX/Ericsson Pushable fiber

28 QNBN Conclusion  Miniflex was pushed by hand at a speed of 15m per minute  On average, saved 45 minutes installation per apartment  Over 10 buildings, this will save >2,200 hours (93 days!)  QNBN have stated that future air blown fiber installations will not be acceptable and requesting only hand pushable fiber in the future  QNBN senior management see the huge advantages of pushable fiber  QNBN have issued Material Approval for M2FX cable

29 But what about the FTTH SDU Solution

30 Same same but Different  Essentially SDU installation is the same principal as In-Building  Taking FTTC inside the premises via a PtP connection  Ideally suited to QuikPush and pre-termination

31 SDU Overview  Push or Pull installation reduces install time and cost:  Hand pushed up to 100m in new ducts / up to 25m in occupied microducts  Miniflex can be pulled 300-450m using traditional methods  No need for expensive blowing and/or compressor equipment  Pre-terminated QuikPush technology:  Ruggedised Pre-termination (one or both ends) fibre cable  Remove the need for splicing and extensive time on site  Deskill the installation teams while increasing efficiency  Proven to reduce the installation time & increase the quality  Product approval by Mobily and already used in the network  Proven business case with existing Mobily installers

32 Mobily / Detasad Case Example Miniflex from the ODB into the customers villa boundary. Note that external microduct is no longer required due to the UV performance of Miniflex Miniflex runs into the premises connected directly to the wall without microduct protection. Miniflex enters the premises and still does not require microduct. Ultimately into the customer wall box with QuikPush connection.

33 M2FX End-2-End Toolbox Summary  Removal of external microduct  Miniflex clipped directly to the outside wall  Flexible, strong and lightweight cable management and reduced footprint  Hand push Miniflex through existing conduit/duct  Reduces cable damage and down time (pull/push rod not required)  Removal of expensive installation blowing equipment  QuikPush and Pre-terminated solutions drive down installation times  Reduces the number of field splices  Deskills the installation team(s) and reduces the installation time  Plug and Play network designed for tomorrows requirements  Splice provisioned network designed to support todays customers  100% removal of requirement of training installation teams  High quality manufacturing and 20+ years of fiber innovation  Miniflex produced only in the United Kingdom  All components produced or sourced from within the EU
