We offer aerial placement of strand and fiber optic cable, so your community can be better connected.
As consumers across the country are putting pressure on their local utility companies to provide fiber optic service, it is important to understand that you have more than one choice. There are two methods for land-based network fiber optic: underground installation and aerial placement. At GP Associates, Inc., we offer both options so you can take into account the many factors involved.
Aerial placement is an ideal option if you are looking to utilize existing utility poles and you want a system that can be easily modified when it comes time to add additional capacity. While aerial fiber is more susceptible to damage and there may need to be adjustments made to the spacing of your current utility poles based on local, state, and national standards, it is easier and less costly to make emergency repairs with aerial placement of fiber optic cable. Aerial placement also requires a modification to the fiber optic cable in that a support strand is necessary. By using pre-lashed fiber optic cable, the aerial placement is less complex.
We are happy to meet with you to discuss the advantages and drawbacks of aerial placement and begin the process of connecting your community with the many benefits that fiber optic cable has to offer. We also provide aerial placement of strand cable. If you would like more information regarding aerial placement or underground boring installation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. No job is too small or too large for us to handle to your complete satisfaction.
