At BTC, we take pride in being one of most experienced Northern Virginia fiber optic installation companies, and a regional leader in innerduct cabling. Here’s what stands us apart from our competition:
- We follow strictly all BICSI international standards
- We use only the most reliable, top quality materials
- We offer a lifetime warranty on all labor and materials — beyond manufacturers’ warranties
- We are small enough to move quickly, but large enough to handle virtually any job
- We get it right the first time, and charge competitive prices
THE ADVANTAGES OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA FIBER OPTIC CABLE INSTALLATION
Most data is sent over relatively short distances at low speed in which case standard wiring is sufficient, and it is not practical to use fiber optics because of the associated costs. However, electromagnetic interference (EMI) does occur in traditional coaxial cables, resulting in a corruption of the data, particularly when transmitted over long distances. Fiber optics, on the other hand, are immune to this EMI since signals are transmitted as light instead of current. Therefore, they can carry signals through places where EMI would block transmission.
Shielding the wire, as in coaxial cables can reduce these problems, but sometimes shielding can allow enough signal leak to cause problems. Conversely, there are no radiated magnetic fields around optical fibers. The electromagnetic fields are actually confined within the fiber itself. For this reason, fiber optic cabling is the most secure medium available for carrying sensitive data.
Increasing the transmission capacity of traditional wire cables typically makes them thicker, more rigid, and difficult to work with. This is particularly true in existing buildings where the cables must go through walls and cable ducts. Fiber optic cables are smaller and more flexible. Another big advantage of fiber cables is that they can utilize the same routes as electric cables without picking up excessive noise.
One of the biggest advantages of fiber optic cabling is the large capacity to carry high speed signals over longer distances without “repeaters” which are often required by many other types of cables. Traditional coaxial cables have a bandwidth parameter of only a few MHz/km, whereas fiber optic cabling typically has a bandwidth of 400MHz/km.
A cost-effective way to protect fiber optic cables from damage during installation, while also preventing other cabling from being forced through the same core holes, is to run the fiber cable through innerduct. This is a type of conduit that is well suited for installation of fiber optic cable and we recommend innerduct cabling/conduit for all Northern Virginia installations.
THE BTC APPROACH TO NORTHERN VIRGINIA OPTICAL FIBER INSTALLATION
As a fiber optics contractor, after thorough examination of the client network specification information and infrastructure needs we will develop the best solution to meet the client’s particular requirements. We then provide the client with a defined installation scope of work and a detailed installation process, for the implementation of a Fiber Optic Cabling Infrastructure Installation.
