World standard for blown fiber and microduct

An Emtelle press release notes that the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) has released a worldwide standard for microduct and blown fiber, including a standard for testing.

This is important because it will improve the ability to deploy products from different manufacturers in the same network and improve overall reliability of blown fiber and microduct products.

Microduct is especially well-suited for many community broadband fiber projects because it can be installed without the need for fiber-certified installers (the fiber is added later by a trained crew), its affordability, and its ease of repair.
