Fiber Optic Cable Installation Tips

To help ensure that your installations go smoothly, here are some helpful guidelines:

Conduct a Site Survey – Know in advance the physical hazards that need special attention and the building code regulations that must be considered.

Develop a Cable Pulling Plan – Communicate to the installation team each person’s specific responsibilities, as well as logistics considerations, access point and splice locations, and any special equipment that may be required.

Follow Proper Procedures – Protect the cables from moisture and make sure someone is always attending to let-off reels, especially in difficult pulls that require center-pull or back-feeding techniques.

Do Not Exceed Cable Minimum or Maximum Bend Radius – Be sure cable is not bent to a smaller or larger radius than it was manufactured to be curved.

Leave Extra Cable – Put extra cable at the beginning and end of the cable run, as well as in junction boxes, splice cases and cable vaults in case repair or mid-span entry is required.

Document the Installation – Record the unique lot number shown on each shipping spool to simplify troubleshooting and upgrades, as well as pre- and post-installation test data.
