Description of Aerial Fiber Optic Cable
Aerial fiber optic cable is typically used when installing outside the pole. It is a fiber optic cable. Because the aerial fiber optic cable is installed externally, it is designed to protect against natural damage or man-made damage and theft. At present, aerial fiber optic cable is mainly used for secondary trunk lines and below. It is typically installed in flat terrain or low-fluctuation areas.
The method of erecting overhead cables is easy to accomplish. It is installed using existing overhead poles. This installation method has its own advantages. It can greatly save construction costs and shorten the construction period. The disadvantage of aerial fiber optic cable is that they are susceptible to natural disasters, external forces and mechanical strength. Aerial fiber optic cables have a higher failure rate than pipes or direct buried cables.
