Client Case Study - Transportation Custom Cable Assembly

The Challenge

The United States Air Force requested a total of (4) 400’ 24-strand (96 total fiber) ST to blunt pigtail custom fiber optic cables to install in 4” conduit with inner duct inside of it.

The Solution

We provided a 400’ 96 fiber assembly, with (2) 48-strand runs bundled together, ST to blunt pigtail, using OCC brand distribution style fiber. We used a pulling eye on the blunt cut end and we staggered the connector end for ease of installation and protection of the fibers since it was within the inner duct’s inside diameter dimensions. Using 2x48 cables made it more manageable than 4x24 cables and also kept the project on budget, whereas a single 96-fiber cable would have been too expensive.

The Result

The Air Force field engineer in charge of the installation was extremely impressed and satisfied with our attention, recommendations, turnaround, quality, and delivery. Upon completion of the project, he wrote, “I appreciate you taking the time and effort to make certain we were on the same page on the requirements and expectations. Thanks for your attention to detail and effort to solve problems before they became problems. Sadly, it is rare that a vendor takes the time and personal effort that you have for this project.“
