Optical Fibres, Cables and Systems

image of Optical Fibres, Cables and Systems

The Handbook is intended as a guide for technologists, middle-level management, as well as regulators, to assist in the practical installation of optical fibre-based systems. Throughout the discussions on the practical issues associated with the application of this technology, the explanations focus on how ITU T Recommendations address them. It provides the organized insights of those who have created and lived with the evolution of the technology for several decades. Note: The soft-copy of this publication is downloadable free of charge on an exceptional basis, while hard-copy may eventually be purchased.



Optical cable installation

This Chapter is devoted to the description of the optical cable installation methods. Each type of optical fibre cable has a specific strain limit and special care and arrangements may be needed to ensure successful installation without exceeding it. Damage caused by overloading during installation may not be immediately apparent, but can lead to failure later in its service life. Also aspects related to bending during the installation may require special consideration.
