The performance characteristics of the light all-media self-supporting optical cable and the laying conditions attached to the power line make the applicable range of the optical cable line much different from that of the ordinary overhead optical cable line.
Light-weight all-media self-supporting optical cable is suitable for accessing projects such as home wide, passengers or wireless small and micro-station access. It should not be used in backbone optical cable lines or trunk access optical cable lines; it should be used in the end of access lines. In particular, the end of the rural home wide access project and the urban villages and other power lines are more messy.
Optical cables should be laid by self-supporting overhead power using power poles, walls or other buildings. It is not suitable for other laying methods; it can be attached to power poles of 10kV and below, and should not cover 10kV or more power poles.
Lightweight all-media self-supporting optical cables are not suitable for the following cable sections:
(1) Macro base station and dedicated line access line with high service level;
(2) It is necessary to lay more than two optical cables on the same route or to extend the optical cable within two years;
(3) a section in which the number of joints is larger in the same optical cable and the average pitch of the joints is smaller;
(4) Paragraphs that cross the main road or cross the road many times.
In order to reduce the loss of cable failure, the number of cores of light all-media self-supporting optical cable should be 6-core and 12-core, and the maximum should not exceed 24 cores.
