Fiber Trunk Cables Explained, What is a Fiber Trunk Cable
Contact us for Ready Made Plug and Play Fiber Trunks
A fiber trunk cable is any fiber optic cable that is capable of supporting multiple users or devices from one point to another. A trunk cable is a convenient and economical alternative to running multiple "jumpers" or individual cables. It can have from 4 to 144 fibers per trunk and distribute multiple data channels.
Fiber optic assemblies, unlike the equivalent copper assemblies, have very tight assembly tolerances that are hard to achieve in the field. If the glass has even the smallest scratch or smudge, not to mention fractures, high loss will result, which bogs down network throughput. As a result, expensive equipment, highly trained laborers and a suitable work environment are required to terminate fiber assemblies. This is not always available on site!
Factory termination guarantees consistent low loss connections for every connector in a trunk cable, and we can provide the serialized test results to prove it! This is accomplished by machine cutting, stripping, polishing and testing each fiber in the fiber trunk. We have established efficient assembly procedures for each type of fiber connector. High quality machine polished fiber trunk cables can be delivered quickly, ready to install - No Scrap, No Rework, No Training, No Expensive Machines, No expensive highly trained fiber technicians, No Hassles! This is a true plug and play fiber solution.
What is a Pulling Eye?
A pulling eye assembly is a protective sleeve with a strength member that attaches around one end of a pre-terminated fiber trunk cable to allow for easy, safe installation. The plastic sleeve protects the connections, while the strength member (tested to 60 lbs pressure) allows you pull the cable through floors, ceilings and walls. This assembly has been used by countless contractors with excellent results.
Can I pull multi-fiber through small conduit?
Often our customers have only a small opening or duct size to pull their cables through. We understand this. We have developed techniques that allow a 96 strand cable with connectors to fit into duct as small as 1"!
Our engineers have developed templates for each cable type and connector type that allow us to stagger the connectors in the custom made pulling eyes that we use for each assembly. The result is an easy to pull cable assembly with well protected connectors.
