Fibre-Optic Installation and Cabling

Ultima have the specialist knowledge of fibre optic cable, fibre optic connectors, the current standards for fibre optic design and installation to provide our customers with a network design and installation to meet their current and future requirements. The correct planning and design of your fibre optic network system should not be over looked; we will help you to choose the right fibre optic technology, from the fibre optic cable type, through to the connectors and the termination method.

Fibre Optic Cable

Fibre optic cable provides the greatest transmission speed compared to any other medium and it has the advantage that it is not susceptible to electromagnetic noise, unlike copper cabling. The ability of fibre optic cable to transmit large amounts of data at high speed makes it the choice for high capacity networks. Fibre optic cable has ability to support transmission speeds from 100 Mb through to 40 Gb and even 100 Gb now.

Fibre optic cable provides backbone connections between data rooms, cabinets and buildings with a small cable diameter compared to the amount of data that can be transmitted, fibre optic cabling provides many advantages over copper from size, speed, distance and not effected by interference.

Fibre Optic Cable - Transmission Distance

Fibre optic cabling will be installed over copper cable even if high speed data transmission is not a requirement. This is due to the transmission distances which copper cabling can deliver. The ability of fibre optic cable to transmit data over distances measured in the many kilometres, means that buildings which could not be connect to the main network by copper cabling, can be connected by fibre optic cable whilst still  providing a reliable and fast data transfer. For full details of Fibre Optic Transmission Distances please follow the link below.

Fibre Optic Cable - Network Segregation

Fibre optic cabling will be installed over copper cable even if high speed data transmission is not a requirement. This is due to the transmission distances which copper cabling can deliver. The ability of fibre optic cable to transmit data over distances measured in the many kilometres, means that buildings which could not be connect to the main network by copper cabling, can be connected by fibre optic cable whilst still  providing a reliable and fast data transfer.

Fibre Optic Cable - Interference & Security

Fibre Optic Cable - Dark Fibre

Dark fibre is the term used to describe the installation of fibre optic cable or cables, for use in the future and where the cores of some or all of the fibre cable are not terminated. These cores within the fibre optic cable may be terminated at a later date when the need for extra capacity or bandwidth presents itself. As the fibre optic cable does not have a connector attached, light from the fibre optic source can not be sent down the core, hence the term dark fibre. This practice of installing fibre optic cables for later use can have large cost benefits in the long run where its much cheaper to install the fibre optic cable whilst other cables are being installed over much of the same route. It may not be possible to install some cables at a later date after a building has been finished without much disruption or cost due to access. So this forward planning in installing fibre optic cable for use at a later date does save customers costs in the long term, sometimes huge savings but will be more costly in the initial installation.

Structured Cabling - Installation and Design

Structured cabling standards define how to design, build, and manage a network cabling system that is structured, composed of blocks that have very specific performance characteristics. These blocks are integrated in a hierarchical manner to create a unified communication system. The standard defines the use of UTP (unshielded twisted pair) cable, STP (shielded twisted pair) cable, and fibre-optic (single and multimode) cable.

All network outlets terminate at a central patch panel that is normally rack-mounted in a communications cabinet, typically using Category 5e, Category 6, Category 6a or Category 7 cable, and modular sockets. Each outlet can either be patched into a data network switch or patched into a voice patch panel that connects to a PBX telephone system, creating a voice port. Structured cabling provides the flexibility that enables changes to be made quickly and easily. Larger organisations may have many communications cabinets in one equipment room and have many equipment rooms throughout their building or site. Normally these equipment rooms are linked by fibre-optic cable.

Ultima has extensive experience in the provision of structured cabling solutions for organisations of all sizes and is highly regarded for its workmanship and for delivering projects on time, every time. We provide a warranty on our structured cabling installations of 20 years or more, depending on the cabling manufacturer, and provide test results for every network point installed. Ultima has Certified Installer status of Siemon structured data cabling. Established in 1903, Siemon is an industry leader specialising in the manufacture and innovation of high quality, high-performance network cabling solutions.

Ultima is a Silver Partner of Aastra Telecom, an award winning manufacturer of telephone systems. We supply and install Aastra Telecom’s Intelligate range of business and office telephone systems throughout the UK.

A structured cabling system should be a long-term investment. Trust Ultima to design, install and maintain a network that will meet your organisation's current and future network requirements. Call us today on 01892 785000 to discuss your project or please fill in the contact form below.

 

Fibre-Optic Cabling

Fibre optic cable provides the greatest transmission speed compared to any other medium and is not susceptible to electromagnetic noise, unlike copper cabling.

Fibre optic cabling is primarily used to link communication hubs and buildings where the distance is greater than the capability of copper, or a high-capacity backbone is required. The advantages of fibre optic over copper cabling also include reduced size, greater bandwidth and increased security.

The range of fibre optic cable systems Ultima offers include OM1 and OM3 Multimode and OS1 Singlemode with final termination in SC, ST, LC and MTRJ.

Ultima is highly experienced in the provision of fibre optic cable installations. We offer a nation-wide service including the design, installation, testing and commissioning of fibre optic cabling. We also repair fibre optic cable using fusion splicing to ensure the best performance.

Type of Fibre Optic Repair

At Ultima we have re-installed or repaired fibre optic cables which have been damaged whether located within buildings, on catenary spans, in trenches and ducts, our expertise has quickly resolved our customers fibre issues. These repairs have been due to damage from people simply cutting the fibre optic cable not realising the cable was still in use or to maliciously damage. We have dealt with the repair of interconnecting fibre optic cables between school buildings were JCBs or other machinery has damaged or torn the cable making a buried joint necessary. We have replaced sections of fibre optic cable due to new building work, and the current route of the cable being unacceptable, requiring the fibre optic cable take a different path. We have used our experience of repairing fibre optic cable to join existing the fibre optic cable to a new fibre optic cable which has been installed along a more preferred route. In these situations it is often less expensive and quicker to repair the fibre optic cable than to replace the entire length.
