Vumatel - A South African Success

The Problem

When Vumatel entered the FTTH market in August 2014, their mission was to find a cost-effective way to connect customers to their open access network in the most efficient and professional manner. Working with fiber glass requires a different set of skills than traditional copper cables.

Products Included
  • Miniflex® Fiber Optic Cable
  • 20 mm PVC Conduit

The Solution

Vumatel turned to PPC Broadband and, in partnership with Mustek SA, the teams discussed ways to transform the industry-leading Miniflex® fiber optic cable to better suit Vumatel’s method of installation.

The Results

Vastly reduced

installation time


field splicing at both ends

Single UV

outdoor / single solution

The PPC splice-less solution will plug and play from end-to-end, empowering the contractor to complete more installations. This helps them raise the bar, in terms of quality and performance, and ultimately drives a far superior return on investment (when comparing the total cost of ownership) than low-cost, low-quality solutions.

End-to-End Last-drop Solution

“Before PPC and Mustek delivered us a high-quality, ruggedized, pre-terminated solution, we struggled with poorly spliced installations.”
