Fibre Optic Cabling

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. 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.


Fibre Optic Cabling Installation

Fibre optic cabling installations to suit all functions. Thus, we offer diverse fibre optic cabling services. In addition to OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 standard fibre optic cable in either internal or external environments. Furthermore, Fibre Optic Cabling 62.5/125 or 50/125 and either Tight Buffered or Loose Tube Cable Construction.

In addition, 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 Fibre 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. 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. 

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 can design, advise, and install a full range of blown fibre cabling solutions. In addition, we can install empty ducting cable for broadband providers such as BT to allow easier planning of works throughout your commercial space.

Fibre Optic Terminations

We provide fibre optic terminations for ST, SC, LC, and MTRJ applications. Most 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, 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 is 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.

Fibre 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.
