Muscat, Oman Broadband Company (OBC), in
collaboration with local partner Swift Beam, has developed the
technology of Atlantis Hydrotec exclusively manufactured by Craley
Limited, which enables the extension of fiber optic cables through
water pipes without the need for excavation work.
The technology will reduce excavation work in homes of
subscribers, as well as reducing the presence of installation workers to
a record time of about two hours. It will also reduce the noise
compared to traditional methods.
Atlantis Hydrotec is based on the extension of a small diameter
tube inside the water pipe, which is used to fill the water tank with
water tankers from the outer wall of the house to the roof of the house
or anywhere else that makes it easy to reach the house. The small
tube is used to pass the fiber-optic cable to the point to be reached.
OBC used the Atlantis Hydrotec technology for the first time in
the Middle East by connecting a subscriber’s home to a 1 GB Internet
package with the same technology.
