New Fiber Optic Cable Installation

It’s amazing how a new fiber optic cable installation can have immediate postive results on your network cabling system. ProTek Fiber can help improve your structured cabling network by installing a new fiber optic cabling system.

Client  had existing network IDF locations that were daisy chained in series, linked using Cat 5e cabling.  ProTek Fiber was asked to install new fiber optic cabling to connect these two Network IDF locations directly to their server room utilizing a Star Topology. This design isolates each IDF on the network, alleviating the risk of lost network capabilities. If  the first IDF in the series would lose network connectivity, the daisy chain design would permit the second IDF to function properly.

Fiber Optic Cable Extension

Here at ProTek Fiber we take great pride in performing customized fiber optic intallations! In certain instances we’re even able to utilze the current fiber optic cabling to create a better customized solution. This was the case on a recent fiber optic installation job for Proof Research.

The client expanded to a new location with an existing ISP connection from a local fiber optic service provider. ProTek Fiber was requested to extend the fiber optic cable from the service providers hand-off in the DEMARC to the location of the customer’s router.
