Air blown fiber installation services

Fiber optic cable installation has become a significant option for data transmission. Unlike traditional copper cabling, fiber optic cable transmits data over a longer distance without any signal interruption. However, we live in a fast-paced lifestyle. Hence, many business owners are looking for an effective and rapid method for fiber optic installation.

We at CMC Communication offer some of the best air-blown installation services out there. From site surveys to testing and certification after the installation, our trained technicians offer end-to-end quality and unrivaled service.

What is Air jetting fiber installation?

Air Jetting is a type of fiber installation technique that uses compressed air to push the cable through pre-installed tubes (also known as micro ducts). It is one of the most influential and fast installation processes compared to traditional methods. Even though pulling and bowling are some of the common fiber installation methods, Air jetting enhances longevity and performance.

Many businesses and organizations are now deviating towards the Air jetting installation method as it minimizes downtime and disruption. The method consists of key components: preparation and installation of micro ducts, acquiring the right Air blowing equipment, and the fiber installation process. Our installation service also includes post-installation inspections like testing and documentation to ensure functionality and maintenance for future reference.

Benefits of Air blown fiber installation

Air-blown fiber (ABF) installation is indeed a simplified but reliable method. Let’s look at some of its benefits to determine why this technique is highly demanded.

Rapid Installation:
ABF installation is much faster and more reliable than the pulling method. The ABF method relies on compressing air, which is much easier and more efficient to use. This is due to the low-friction, high-drag jacketing system that allows the cable to move at a faster speed without stressing the fiber.

Cost-effective:
Multiple pathways allow for cable to be added in the future without additional construction costs. This eliminates the need for extensive equipment and reduces labor costs.

Navigate through Confined Spaces:
The most beneficial aspect of the ABF method is that it can navigate through confined, hard-reach places or limited access areas. This can be possible due to the thin tubes called microducts, which can be installed in narrow spaces.

Scalability:
The great thing about the ABF technique is that you can easily expand or add additional cable to the existing microducts if needed in the future. This can future-proof your network system and infrastructure so that it can match the growing bandwidth demands.

Zero interruption:
The ABF installation holds the ability to conduct the installation process without disrupting the network of the premises.
