At FiberPlus, we understand that determining the right equipment for your business can be exhausting. When being responsible for selecting the proper cabling to ensure fast connectivity, business owners might be uncertain of which selection will enhance their commercial business’s needs. Let’s explore the benefits and drawbacks of conventional fiber and air-blown fiber.
Conventional Fiber Technology
Although both are responsive, fast networking solutions, conventional fiber systems are usually designed with more fiber strands and various fiber types. This particular fiber technology also requires consumers to know exactly how much networking they need. A drawback to conventional fiber optic technology is that consumers often don’t consider the possible expansion of their networking demands or installation site. So, if the existing cables fill the pathways, working out additional pathways can be time-consuming and expensive. To avoid this problem, use air-blown fiber technology or ask for extra cabling upon installation.
What You Need to Know About Air-Blown Fiber
On the other hand, air-blown fiber is an efficient method to install fiber optic cable and simplify the future expansion of optical fiber networks. We can install fibers in hard-to-reach areas or that have limited access. We also recommend air-blown fiber for environments where they will be many additions and changes to the network. In addition, air-blown fiber allows for duct installation before you know how much fiber is needed. Thus, removing the need to install dark fibers.
As a certified designer and installer, FiberPlus can provide commercial companies with an air-blown system or modernize your current fiber optic networking system if you switch to an air-blown system. One of the advantages of an air-blown fiber system installation is that it can be built on a standby basis when networking demands increase, or you want to expand your network. FiberPlus can assist!
