Single-mode, Multi-mode Fibre Optic installers, termination and testing: Sonet can provide a complete service regarding fibre optic cabling and infrastructure and fibre optic engineers. This ranges from fibre optic backbones between cabinets in one building to fibre optic backbones on multi-building sites. The use of both single-mode and multi-mode fibre optic cable combined with either internal or external grade cable is determined by each individual project’s requirements, which can be tailored to meet the customer’s needs by fibre optic engineers.
Sonet provides fibre optic networking solutions including:
- Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) runs over a fibre optic cable from the telephone exchange, all the way to inside your property. The fibre from the exchange is normally terminated on the outside wall of a home, and a short run inside to the modem, which then offers an Ethernet connection.
- Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) involves running fibre optic cables from the telephone exchange or distribution point to the street cabinets which then connect to a standard phone line to provide broadband.
- Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) provides an end-to-end fibre optic connection with the full distance from the exchange to the building and can deliver faster speeds than FTTC as there is no copper leg at all.
- In areas where ducting is available, the hardware for FTTP is installed in the various chambers, in areas with telegraph poles, weatherproof enclosures are used to house the fibre splitters that take the fibres from the exchange and divide them out to go to individual premises.
