Choosing the Best Installation Method - Pushable Fiber Solution

Posted by Krista Thresh

There are multiple ways to deliver fiber into a home, multi-dwelling unit (MDU) or commercial building, but some methods are more costly and time-consuming than others. Installation time is a major operational cost – up to 80% of a typical FTTP deployment – so it’s important to choose the right method.

Operators can choose among three common methods for deploying fiber – pushing, pulling and blowing – and they’re all very different. While each has its advantages, the most time- and cost-efficient method is often a pre-terminated fiber cable paired with a hand-pushing tool.

Posted by Krista Thresh

PPC leads the industry when it comes to training and support, and while in-person training sessions are impossible with the current COVID-19 situation, we are still working to provide our customers with the support they are accustomed to.

Some studies have shown up to 40% of broadband service calls are related to drop network issues and many of these problems could be solved by proper installations by technicians. For about 20 years, we’ve offered qualifying customers our Tech Advantage® Training to avoid craft errors and decrease the number of truck rolls.
