    Fibre Optic Cable Installation Company

    Fibre optic cabling uses light, rather than electrical pulses, to send data. This means fibre optic cabling can transfer data more quickly and over longer distances compared to copper cabling. The two main types of fibre optic cabling are multi-mode (MM) and single-mode (SM).

    However, which type of fibre optic cabling you should choose will depend on your specific needs – and we can establish those by holding a consultation with you at the home or workplace where you would like us to install the fibre optic cabling.

    We know your data requirements at work could be very different to those back home – but we can determine the best fibre optic cabling setup for you, whether you want to link multiple premises and workstations or simply keep your household’s video and music streaming stutter-free.

    Our team is trained in installing a wide range of fibre optic cables – including tight buffered, loose tube, CST and armoured cables to OM1, OM2 and OM3 specifications. Don’t worry if you don’t know what any of these technical terms mean – because our experts do.

    Types of Fibre Optic Cabling

    With our end-to-end service, we can help you with every stage of implementing a new fibre optic cable network – from initially planning it through to flicking the switch to make it live. Many different types of fibre optic cabling are available – and we can consult with you to decide which of these types would be the best fit or whether you should opt for an alternative solution, like structured data cabling.

    Air Blown Fibre Installation

    This is so-called as, through the use of a compressed-gas system, the fibre is blown into pipes built with smaller tubes ready to accept the fibres as they arrive. This makes for an especially easy, fast and frictionless way to implement fibre optic connectivity.

    Fibre To The Desktop ( FTTD )

    This is where you would use fibre optic cables to connect a number of your company’s workstations to its network. Unlike copper cables, fibre cables do not produce EMI (electromagnetic energy) radiation – making them more effective at deterring hackers.

    Multi Mode Fibre Optic Cabling

    With its large-diameter core, this multi-mode cabling allows numerous modes of light to be sent through it. As a result, this cabling can effortlessly transmit various types of data – making multi-mode an appealing choice for heavy-duty users.

    Single Mode Fibre Optic Cabling

    While multi-mode cabling uses LEDs, the single-mode alternative instead – through the use of a laser – generates just one wavelength of light. Consequently, no other wavelengths of light can risk garbling the data transmitted in this cabling over long distances.

    Commercial Fibre Optic Cable Installers

    Each fibre optic cable contains at least one glass strand, at the centre of which is the “core” where light travels through. The core is encased by a layer of glass, known as “cladding”, which protects the cable from losing its signal or easily falling prey to interference. 

    Due to benefits like this, fibre optic cabling is especially popular with our enterprise customers – not least because traditional structured cabling would not be able to extend a network’s reach further than 100m. This leaves fibre optic cabling better for linking buildings and floors.

    We can use various measures to minimise the risk of disruption to the routine operations of your company as its new fibre optic cabling network takes shape. For example, we can plan and prepare as much of this network as possible before visiting your premises.

    Meanwhile, the on-site installation work can take place outside your company’s normal office hours, should this be more convenient for your staff. However, as our engineers are experienced in installing cabling in active workplaces, disruption is unlikely to be a problem.

    Fibre Optic Cabling Installation FAQ’s

    While structured cabling transmits data via electrical pulses sent down copper wires, fibre optic cabling transmits data by sending light pulses down cores of glass. Compared to structured data cabling, fibre optic cabling:

    • Offers higher bandwidth, with speeds potentially reaching 2,000 Mbps
    • Is capable of transmitting data over longer distances
    • Does not use electricity, making it more resilient against power outages

    However, for help with deciding whether fibre optic cabling or structured data cabling would be the better option for you, please contact our Wi-Fi consultants.

    The cost of the fibre optic cabling itself is no higher than that of the copper wiring used for structured data cabling. Nonetheless, you could find that having fibre optic cabling installed actually hits you harder in the pocket than opting for copper cable installation.

    You would incur this extra expense from sourcing the transmission hardware that would be required for your fibre optic cabling to work. In many scenarios, additional hardware like this would not be required for you to use copper cabling – though this can still come with its own limitations, which we can detail if you get in touch with us.

    This would depend strongly on your workplace’s particular data requirements. Today, data centres predominantly use fibre optic cabling, as the amount of bandwidth required by these facilities has increased over time.

    However, overall, fibre optic cabling remains more expensive than structured data cabling. Hence, copper cabling remains the usual choice in work environments like offices and schools, where structured data cabling suffices for meeting the bandwidth requirements.

    In any case, rest assured that we offer Wi-Fi connectivity options for various workplaces – including shops, hotels, medical centres and care homes.

    You could be tempted to choose fibre optic cabling over copper cabling out of a belief that the former is the more forward-thinking solution and so would hold you in good stead for longer. Besides, the usual premium paid for fibre optic cabling has shrunk over time.

    You are still likely to find copper cabling less expensive not only to implement but also to use over the long term. However, if you expect your long-term connectivity needs to be highly demanding, fibre optic cabling could actually prove, over time, the more economical option for you.

    We will do this by undertaking a survey at the property where the cabling will eventually be installed. In the process of carrying out this survey, we will:

    • Find the best cabling routes available in your property
    • Discuss the cable mode options from which you could choose
    • Explore ways to reduce disruption the installation work could bring

    We will also detail our findings in a written report to hand back to you. On our website, you can easily book your Network Report.

    If you run into a fibre network failure, you can ask us to undertake some troubleshooting – whether or not we were the ones who originally installed that network.

    Once you have contacted us for help, we will send engineers to your domestic or commercial building. They will bring with them all of the equipment they need to trace the cause of the fault.

    We can then rectify the fault – though the remedy here could be a temporary repair solution if other work outside our remit, like civil engineering, would be required for a permanent fix.
