Job completed for Oak Point Fiber Repair

Completion date: September 17, 2020

Location: Oak Point, TX

Why did the customer contact us?

A new homeowner called us to repair fiber between their barn and their house.

Solutions provided:

The solution we provided was repairing his fiber that he pulled between his barn and his house by fusion splicing new ends on. The issue was he purchased 200 ft LC LC fiber patch cords not meant to be pulled through conduit. These are manufactured to be used in a data closet connecting network switches and are made with very light material never intending for it to be used underground connecting buildings. The issue was all the pre-terminated ends would not make it through the small diameter of the pipe so he cut them all off. We fixed them all but he will have to make dure no one gets into that closet or they could easily damage them. Ideally, he would have called us first or used a solid piece of fiber made to pull underground that would not be so delicate or with ends alreay connected. We get many calls of people trying to pull fiber with perterminated ends.
