Used by electric utilities on transmission lines with the voltage of 35 kV and higher for creating optical communication lines and protecting the power lines from lightning strikes.
Applied for aerial installation on distribution and power transmission lines for building long distance optical communication systems.
Used for distributed fiber optic sensing in different applications.
Used for indoor and outdoor applications where fire resistance is a must. Remain functional under direct flame for at least 180 minutes.
Applied in ducts, conduits and trays with no risk of rodent attacks. Can also be lashed.
Designed for high reliability in harsh environments with potential mechanical impact. Applied in all ground types, swamps, and harsh rivers.
Designed for air blowing in ducts and microducts for building reliable underground communication networks.
Designed for underwater application with increased crush and tensile loads.

Used for cost-effective one-step aerial installation mostly in rural areas where the spans between poles are not long .
Applied in substations for control purposes.
Used to create communication lines between the common distribution box and a location inside the building (including vertical runs), between entrances or corridors in office buildings.
Applied for aerial installation on transmission towers, lightning poles, between buildings and structures for communication networks in rural areas.
Blown fiber optic technology, also known as jetting, is when a machine is used to float cable through the fiber cable conduit run by using highly pressurized air to push it forward. Fiber optic cables are blown into ducts/microducts creating communication infrastructure. The duct is made of high-density polyethylene which protects the cable from mechanical damages and moisture. This allows a very simple cable design. Tensile load is evenly distributed along the cable surface.
Blowing fiber is great for long distances and can go thousands of feet. As a result, fewer splice points and handholes are needed, which can save on material costs. Additionally, fewer crew members are needed for the fiber installation process which helps save on labor costs, the largest cost associated with fiber network build.
Blowing fiber is a relatively new technology and training is required for proper operation, installation, and maintenance of the equipment.
