As CivMaq continues to grow its portfolio of services, we as a company ensure that modern trends are kept within our grasp, so that our expanding set of clients are able to expect the latest technology and capabilities from us. Our Fibre Optic Cable installation and handling services are a perfect example of this.

This technology uses glass or plastic fibres to transmit data, as fibre optic cable consists of a bundle of glass threads, each of which is able to transmit messages modulated onto light waves. This popular technology is widely used for local-area networks, while telephone companies are steadily replacing telephone lines with fibre optic cables, and in future it is expected that virtually all communications will use fibre optics.

Our company is able to carry out handling, installing, testing, troubleshooting and repair work with regards to fibre optic cables. We understand the need to install with care to ensure that there are no issues to deal with later on and that any problems which arise are dealt with professionally and efficiently. Our state-of-the-art technology and resources, both plant and human, allow us to be leaders in this emerging data trend.

Our highly trained staff use great skill and experience to ensure that the cable used does not exceed its minimum allowable bend radius and lengths are well considered when installing, as these are important elements to take note of.

Improper handling or installation of the fibre optic cable can cause damage to the system as a whole, which is why trusted experts should be employed to install and handle with expertise and guaranteed reliability, and this is a given with CivMaq Projects.

Advantages of Fibre Optics:

  • Fibre optic cables have a much greater bandwidth than metal cables, which means they carry more data.
  • Fibre optic cables are less susceptible to interference compared to metal cables.
  • Fibre optic cables are thinner and lighter than metal wires.
  • Data can be transmitted digitally rather than analogically, which is best for modern data usage.
