Fibre Optic Cabling

Harnessing the superior bandwidth of fibre optic cable

Fibre optic cabling solutions appropriate to system requirements, environment and budget. Fibre optic cabling can be advantageous due to low loss and high bandwidth, making it an excellent choice over long distances .

A fibre optic cable consists of multiple glass cores. Each core is thinner than a human hair and is capable of transmitting data through light waves and achieving higher transmission speeds over a longer distance.

Fibre optic cabling is extensively used in technology and telecommunications due to its large bandwidth and superior range compared to copper. We offer diverse fibre optic cabling services from legacy OM1 through to newer OM5 and OS2 specifications. Indeed OM1 OM2 OM3 OM4 OS1 OS2 in either internal or external environments. We can carry out network design and specification through to fully managed surveys and installations for a wide range of projects.



Fiber Optic Cabling Installation

As fiber optic cable installers, we offer diverse fibre optic cabling services to suit all functions. Our experienced technicians are equipped to handle installations in both internal and external environments, using OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 standard fibre optic cable. We provide solutions for a variety of applications, including high-speed internet, video conferencing, and data storage. Trust us to provide you with the most reliable and efficient fibre optic cabling solution for your business needs.

In addition, as fiber optic cable installers, we also have extensive experience in warehouse and external building installations. In these environments powered access is widely used. Our engineering team have a large range of experience installing using powered scissor and boom lifts

Single Mode and OS1 Fiber Optic Cabling

For single mode fibre optic we can install your requirements in various applications internally and externally. OS1 and OS2 fibre have a smaller internal core size compared to multimode fibre. Thus in many ways the installation of both categories is the same. However our design team will be able to advise you on the best solution for your environment technology and network requirements. Furthermore OS1 fibre cables are extensively found in audio visual installations and long haul connections.

Selection of Multi Mode Fibre Optic. Om1, OM2, OM3, OM4 

Multimode fibre is generally the most common cable category found in backbone and commercial based installations. Choosing the correct fibre optic cabling will ensure that you get the best possible performance from your IT infrastructure. As a result the correct choice of fibre optic cabling maximizes the productivity and effectiveness of the workforce. Therefore See our blog – Fibre Optic -Simplifying the Selection of Multi Mode 

Blown Fibre Cabling

Blown fibre cabling has the advantage of expansion of additional network links through initial installation of blown fibre cabling ducts. Thus additional cores are then blown in through the existing ducts and save the disruption of pulling in new cables. We are able to design, advise and install a full range of blown fibre cabling solutions. In addition we are able to install empty ducting cable for broadband providers such as BT to allow easier planning of works throughout your commercial space

Fiber Optic Terminations

We provide fibre optic terminations for ST, SC, LC, and MTRJ applications. The majority of modern fibre cabling links are generally terminated with LC connectors. However due to the longevity of Fibre installations SC, ST and MTRJ terminations are still found. Therefore we have the correct equipment for termination and testing. Likewise each connector requires a different testing launch lead so a set of professional testing equipment is essential. Finally as fiber optic cable installers we can also provide patch leads to incorporate the various terminations.

Fibre to Desk (FTTD)

To keep up with high speed data transfer, fibre optic to desk applications are now more popular.  Consequently we use our extensive experience in office locations to install fibre optic in various situations including work desks, in false floors, false ceilings and partition walls.

Fiber Optic Fusion Splicing

We can offer the choice to splice your existing fibre optic cable. Thus allowing you to extend or relocate without the need to re-run the entire cable length. We therefore use Fusion splice machines at times to terminate new fibre optic cable installations. Furthermore to achieve minimal loss during terminating joints.

Fibre Optic Cabling Testing – OTDR

We test your existing cabling for faulty or suspected broken fibre optic cabling. In addition we find the exact point of failure along the cable. Thus enabling a corrective splice and therefore removing the need for new cabling and disruption.

Out of Hours Fibre Optic Installations

Surveys and installations can generally be any day of the week and at any time of day to suit the client’s needs. Of course resulting in minimising disruption and down times.

6 Major Factors Affecting Fibre Optic Cabling Performance

Fibre optic cable has of course an amazing bandwidth. However it is often restricted by the hardware either side of the cable rather than the bandwidth of the cable itself. To this end speed and performance can be affected by the quality of installation of the Fibre Optic Cabling. Together with a good initial design and post installation testing.
