Fiber Optic Cable Pulling

Electrical wire installers know how to pull cable. The basic approach to pulling fiber optic cable differs little from the techniques used to pull copper or aluminum. However, just as aluminum responds differently than copper when pulled, fiber has its own idiosyncrasies. Avoiding Disaster The first step in pulling cable is to measure and cut the material. Inaccurate measurements are a disaster in fiber cable installation. Splices are much more critical with fiber than with metal cable because a minimum loss budget must be maintained and splices cause loss. Thus, assumptions and guess work are simply not allowed. The physical

Fiber Optic Cable Installation Overview

Fiber optic cables are commonly installed indoor and outdoor for inside and outside plants in LANs, MANs and WANs. This article describes some of the common fiber cable installation methods. We provide all the fiber cable installation tools, cable duct and raceway and cable management system. You can also click on the following picture to get more info. :: Indoor Fiber Optic Cable Installation Indoor fiber cables should be placed in conduits or trays. Most fiber cables are non-conductive so they can be placed alongside high voltage cables without any special insulation. cable installation must meet the NEC and local

When adding a new building to a campus cabled with 62.5 micron fiber, can the new building be cabled with 50 micron fiber?

This is certainly an issue that is occurring more often in the field. While standards bodies suggest not mixing media in a network, there are certainly cases where it is necessary, for example, when a company is migrating to new technologies or, as in the case of your client, where they are cabling an additional building. There are two ways this can be accomplished: either through an optical connection or through network electronics. The more straightforward approach is to make the connection between the two media types through the electronics and not in the patch panel. In this scenario, if

What is a Telecommunications Enclosure (TE) and is it supported by Standards?

A telecommunications enclosure (TE) can serve as a second (or third or more) telecommunications room (TR) in certain implementations as described in TIA/EIA 568-B.1 Addendum 5, approved in February 2004. In a FTTE installation, backbone fiber is run from the entrance facility through the telecommunications room (TR) (which is still required on every floor) to active equipment housed in TEs. The TE acts as a “tiny TR”, providing consolidation, distribution, and a point of termination closer to the work area. The final link to the desktop can be via fiber, UTP cable, or wireless. FTTE takes advantage of the extended
