Outside Plant (OSP) & Structured Cabling
Conach Telecom specializes in the process of physically installing and completing fibre optic networks, turning network designs into operating systems. Our teams of experienced technicians work closely with our clients in every stage of installation project; design, project management, installation, testing, troubleshooting, documentation and restoration.
OSP installations include installing aerial cable, direct-buried cable, underground cable in conduit or installing conduit or inner-duct and then pulling cable. Our teams are equipped and trained to install all network configurations including complex links that may include several types of installation, for example aerial in one section, pulling in conduit on a bridge crossing and burying the rest of the cable.
Hardware and Equipment
OSP installations may require installation of supporting structures before the cable installation can begin. Conach Telecom can provide full project management services to schedule all specialized equipment that may be needed and ensure that all personnel are well-trained in their use
Once the infrastructure is in place and the cable placed, the fiber optic splicing work begins. Conach Telecom has the expertise and equipment to splice and test all fibre optic cables. Our fibre splicing teams consist of a fibre splicer on the job site and test technician working at the other end of the cable with an OTDR to verify each splice.
Pulling and Placing OSP Cable
Conach Telecom’s expertise in OSP installations fall into three broad categories, underground, direct buried, and aerial, each requiring different procedures, tools and even cables.
- Underground cables are pulled in conduit that is buried underground.
- If the geography allows, some fiber optic cables can be buried directly in the ground by plowing or trenching directly into the ground and placing the cable in the trench.
- In aerial configurations the fibre optic cables can be lashed to support messenger cable
Conach Telecom specializes in structured cabling installation for wiring data centers, office buildings, and apartment buildings for data or voice communications using cable, category 5e (CAT5e), category 6 (CAT6), and fiber optic cabling and modular connectors.
Our team of structured cabling technicians ensure the design and installation of your cabling systems will support whatever hardware you choose to add and will be suitable for today’s needs and those of the future.
Conach’s structured cabling services cover all six subsystems:
- Entrance facilities – the point where the telco network ends and connects with the on-premises wiring at the customer premises.
- Equipment rooms – where equipment and wiring consolidates to serve users inside the building or campus.
- Backbone cabling – the inter-building and intra-building cable connections between entrance facilities, equipment rooms and telecommunications closets.
- Horizontal cabling – the inside wiring (IW) that connects telecommunications rooms to individual outlets or work areas on the floor, through the wireways, conduits or ceiling spaces of each floor.
- Telecommunications rooms – to connect the backbone cabling and horizontal cabling.
- Work-area components – to connect end-user equipment to outlets of the horizontal cabling system.
