Underground fiber optic cable installation is a major project to take on that requires a significant investment. However, many businesses today are still switching to fiber optic networks because of the high download speeds and reliability that they offer.
Today, there are two main types of cable used to transmit signals in data networks, such as the internet: fiber optics and copper wire. Copper is the oldest type of cable currently in use. With copper wire, low pulses of electricity go through the wire and then are converted into binary information, which is processed by a computer at the other end.
With a fiber optic setup, the information is passed through a glass filament in the form of light pulses. At the end of the filament, the computer processes the information.
If you have decided to switch to an underground fiber optic cable network, installation is not something you should do yourself. Because fiber optic cable is a type of high-performance technology, you must have the proper tooling and knowledge of industry standards to install it correctly.
