FTTA- Fiber to the Antenna – Lessons Learned- Part 1

July 19th, 2018

Alliance recently presented a webinar ‘Lessons Learned, FTTA Challenges‘.

We want to share with our readers the expertise we’ve gained from years in the business of designing, manufacturing and supporting fiber optic cable for use in the wireless industry.

Over the next few blog posts, we’ll write about the challenges related to the install of fiber at wireless sites including our recommendations along with some tutorials.

Here’s a list of the challenges we see:

  1. Cable management challenges on the tower
  2. Planning/site walks
  3. Tower loading/wind loads
  4. Fiber and power connectivity
  5. Inexperienced fiber handling and testing

Stay tuned for part 2, ‘Cable Management Challenges on the Tower’.
