Orbis Oy builds new production facilities in Estonia

08.05.2019

For 20 years, Orbis Oy has been manufacturing customized telecom cable assemblies in Saue, Estonia. In March 2019, an agreement was signed to build a new property for Orbis’ production.

Orbis Saue uusi tehdas

This year, Orbis Oy, a Finnish family business, celebrates its 70th anniversary. In addition to importing components, the company started manufacturing its own products in the 1990s. In 1999, Orbis Oy Eesti filiaal was established in Estonia, and the production of RF cables, fiber optic cables and system assemblies was transferred there. Today, the Estonian branch also manufactures twisted pair cable assemblies. Own manufacturing site is also the foundation for Orbis' own product development.

In the future, the customized solutions will play an important role in creating a competitive advantage for Orbis Oy. "We are looking forward to increase the share of our own products and R&D solutions," emphasizes Jani Linna-Aro, CEO of Orbis, and continues: "This investment in new production facilities enhances production processes and enables greater production volumes."

The new factory will be built by Vintselle OÜ and it will be located about half a kilometer away from the current site. When designing the new premises, a special attention was paid on the required space for the extensive product portfolio. Also, important feature is the critical environmental cleanliness of the manufacture of fiber optic products. Asko Kaldas, the Department director of 30 employees, says: "Getting production to one floor brings many improvements. We will be able to produce more versatile portfolio, for example, by making assemblies that combine different technologies."

The new factory building is expected to be completed in summer 2020.

OptoMast™ Smart City takes over cabling for smart poles, 5G and IoT

26.06.2018

In the smart city of the future, information is provided by the numerous services, and these services also adapt based on the information. It is becoming more and more critical that data connections are reliable. The new technology is based on the sensors and network connected devices that need both communication and power supply cabling. The new Smart City generation of the Orbis OptoMast™ product family is an easy-to-install and reliable cabling solution for smart poles, IoT applications and mobile network base stations.

Since 2007, Orbis OptoMast™ products have served as a cabling solution for tens of thousands of mobile network stations for data transmission and power supply needs. Detailed design of the OptoMast™ solution enables smooth, and cost-effective installation and reliable, robust cabling - even under extreme conditions. The supply chain can be flexibly adapted to the construction schedule.

Small size is a requirement in smart poles and 5G base stations

Orbis OptoMast Smart CityOne component of a future city is a smart pole, which integrates multiple functionalities, such as controllable LED lighting, display boards, wireless network access points, surveillance cameras or weather stations. OptoMast™ Smart City cabling can serve a variety of devices.

The smart pole application and the mast of a 5G base station both have limited space for cabling. In the new OptoMast™ product line, space saving has been achieved in two ways.

The space required for the connections is determined by the cable ports, bending radius, and connector sizes. First, the connection box was re-designed to be as small as possible. If fuses are required for the power supply, they are now located in a separate fuse box mounted on the bottom of the mast.

The second solution for space saving is a hybrid cable or a hybrid enclosure. In the hybrid cable, both the fiber optic and power supply are transmitted through the same cable jacket and they are separated only in the enclosure for connections. The hybrid cable can also be used without a box, for example in an IoT application. Alternatively, a hybrid solution can be constructed from separate communication and power cables that are connected in a common hybrid enclosure.

For more information on the new versions of the OptoMast™ Smart City generation, please turn to Orbis sales. We will continue our product development, for the development of new services and technologies will naturally affect the cabling solutions as well.

Orbis Oy participated at the SähköTeleValoAV trade fair in Jyväskylä 7-9. Feb 2018 with new 5G-compatible product line Orbis OptoMastTM. The product is 5G compatible and was attached to wooden telecom mast made by Ecotelligent.
