Latvia benefits from MDU-intensive FTTH solution

Connecting high density city populations

Latvia’s largest operator Lattelecom speeds up subscriber fibre connections with the Prysmian Group Verticasa riser solution for Multiple Dwelling Unit customer fibre connections. Latvia, with its 2,2 million inhabitants is now one of the top 10 countries in Europe in terms of FTTH penetration. The Prysmian Group Verticasa system is proving to be the most cost-effective solution to bring fibre efficiently to MDU residents in Latvia.

To date there are over 1500 km of Verticasa riser cables and thousands of Prysmian Group connectivity products installed in the country’s high population density cities. The VertiCasaXS main riser cable uses up to 96 fibres branched directly to customers on different floors of the high rise apartment blocks. Currently the Lattelecom FTTH network passes 400,000 homes, of which around 73,000 are connected with this Prysmian solution. Compatible connectivity products and all of the required accessories rapidly complete a FTTH installation from the main fibre distribution point to the end user.
