Since the 1970s, fiber-optics has played an instrumental role in revolutionizing the telecommunications industry. The advent of the Information Age has relied primarily on the optical fiber communication process. Due to the advantages of fiber optics as opposed to electrical transmission, optical fiber offers greater bandwidth and can span longer distances than electrical cabling.
Optical fiber is used by telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals, internet communication, and cable television signals. Optical fiber offers lower attenuation and interference, making it the choice over copper wire.
Installers of fiber optic cable require various tools to complete the task of running optic cable underground. Here are some of the tools of the fiber optic communications trade you may need to rent.
