PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The use of fibre optic cable installed in underground ducts is required for the construction of access loops and end links, to extend the Operational Telecommunications network (OPTEL) to the relevant point of service.
This document provides general guidelines for the installation of 32 mm diameter (nominal) subduct into 100 mm diameter underground ducting, pulling in optical cable, splicing, identifying cable ends and testing the installed cable.
The construction of underground ducting, draw boxes, splice boxes and above ground equipment pedestals shall be constructed in accordance with specification TS 3.8.22.
