Outside Plant Cabling
Telephone companies, CATV and the Internet all use fiber optic and copper communications wires, virtually all of which is outside of buildings. It hangs from poles, buried underground, pulled through conduit or even submerged underwater. Most of it goes relatively long distances, from a few hundred feet to hundreds of miles. ATS has been designing, installing and testing outside plant cabling for our customers for more than 40 years.
Outside plant cables have very high capacity for transmitting voice and data signals. Cables are designed for the environment they are installed in: cables in conduit for pulling tension and resisting moisture, buried cables for resisting moisture and rodent damage, aerial for continuous tension and extreme weather and undersea for resisting moisture penetration. Installation requires special equipment such as bucket trucks, trenchers, backhoes, lashers and trailers to carry the large spools of cable being installed.
If you have a campus environment with multiple buildings you probably have an outside cable plant in need of service or updating. And if you have multiple buildings and have always wanted them connected for voice and data services, ATS can show you the most efficient and cost effective ways to make that connection a reality.
