Criteria for optical fibre cable installation with minimal existing infrastructure
|Publication Date:||1 November 2018|
This Recommendation describes criteria for optical fibre cable installation in situations with minimal existing infrastructure. This Recommendation also describes how to mitigate the considerable risks and/or issues to which the optical fibre cable may be exposed when infrastructures are insufficient during installation, maintenance and operation procedures. This Recommendation considers only point-to-point network architectures.
This Recommendation is equally applicable to the developing countries where creation of telecommunications infrastructure is underway to bridge the digital divide and can be extended to cover difficult rural areas comprising high altitudes, coasts, forest and similarly situated regions of the world. This Recommendation will be very helpful in quick restoration of telecom services that may be frequently interrupted by other developmental activities.
