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.

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.

What Are The Benefits Of Installing Fiber Optic Cables At Your Business?

You may think it’s not a viable option to upgrade your business or company’s existing cable system to fiber optic cables. Consider this—the expense associated with fiber optic cabling has decreased dramatically as more and more businesses are realizing the true benefits of a professional fiber optic installation. Not only will your employees experience improved bandwith, you just might discover an increase in productivity as well.

Let’s discuss the real advantages of contracting a professional cabling company to install your fiber optic network.

Fiber Optic Design
Fiber Optic cabling is much thinner and lighter than traditional copper cable. The smaller size of fiber optic cables makes it much easier to work with and takes up less space in wiring trays and conduits.

Fiber Optic Reliability
When it comes to transmitting data reliably, fiber optic cabling is definitely your best bet. Unlike traditional copper cable, fiber optic cables are immune to electrometric interference, crosstalk and impedance problems. In the event that fiber optic cabling gets wet, unlike copper, it will still perform.

Your Data Is More Secure When Using Fiber Optic Cables
Fiber optic cabling is very difficult to be tampered with. If a malicious attempt is made to tap into your network, physically breaking the cable, the fiber optics will leak light, causing the entire system to become nonfunctional—protecting your communications from prying eyes.

Better Bandwith
Fiber optic cables provide more bandwith than copper, which means your business will be able to carry more information in a higher quality than traditional copper wire. Fiber speeds are dependent on the type of fiber optic cable you choose to use.

Quicker And Longer Runs
Being that fiber optic signals consist of light, you will experience very minimal signal loss while allowing your data to move at higher speeds over greater distances.

Save Money Over The Lifespan Of Your Network
Yes, it’s true that the initial cost of fiber optic installation is more expensive than copper cable, however, fiber optic cabling usually costs much less to maintain, provides less downtime and even requires less networking hardware.

ProTek Fiber Offers Innerduct Conduit Installation

Is your Internet service provider installing fiber optic cabling from the street to your office building? If so, you may be responsible for providing an Innerduct Conduit Pathway from the building entrance point to the LAN room for the new fiber optic cabling.

ProTek Fiber can help you meet those requirements by installing Plenum or Riser rated Innerduct Conduit for your service provider’s fiber optic pathway. We also supply a pull cord inside the conduit for cable pulling ease.

ProTek Fiber also has the capabilities to install MaxCell Fabric Innerduct in existing or new Conduit pathways. MaxCell is a flexible, multi celled, textile Innerduct system that provides dedicated pathways in congested riser ducts and allows for future expansion.
