Fibre Optical Installation Services

IT-C Support Solutions provide fibre optic cabling services, include design, installation and support. Our engineers are highly experienced in fibre optic termination, splicing and testing.

It's the communications technology that works by sending signals down hair thin strands of glass fiber (and sometimes plastic fiber.) It began about 30 years ago in the R&D labs (Corning, Bell Labs, ITT UK, etc.) and was first installed in Chicago, IL, USA in 1976. By the early 1980s, fiber networks connected the major cities on each coast.

By the mid-80s, fiber was replacing all the telco copper, microwave and satellite links. In the 90s, CATV discovered fiber and used it first to enhance the reliability of their networks, a big problem. Along the way, the discovered they could offer phone and Internet service on that same fiber and greatly enlarged their markets.

Computers and LANs started using fiber about the same time as the telcos. Industrial links were among the first as the noise immunity of fiber and its distance capability make it ideal for the factory floor. Mainframe storage networks came next, the predecessors of today's fiber SANs (storage area networks.)

Other applications developed too: aircraft, ship and automobile data busses, CCTV for security, even links for consumer digital stereo!

Today fiber optics is either the dominant medium or a logical choice for every communication system

The use of a Fiber Optic Network (FON) minimizes maintenance expenses because the Fiber Optic Network (FON) is constructed only of Fiber-Optic cabling and optical splitter and couplers. Signals are not affected by electrical noise.

This makes Fiber Optics the perfect partner for electrical transmission right of ways. Exempt from FCC-mandated sweeps, fiber reduces operation and maintenance costs for an outside plant. Fiber also drives much longer loops than copper and there is no ongoing plant tuning. Additionally, the Fiber Optic Network has an estimated Interior/Exterior, LAN, WAN, and Plant life of more than 35 years.

Even today, full-service broadband networks need to support bandwidth-intensive voice, video, and data applications. Whether for IP streaming video for residential consumers, Virtual Private Networking (VPN) for telecommuters, or point to point T1 services for businesses, only Fiber Optics can satisfy the wide ranging needs of an entire networked community.

IT-C Support Solutions Ltd has the resources, experience and expertise to work with clients to develop the fibre network solution that their specific fiber optic application requires.
