When purchasing a new plot of land to construct a telecom site, it is essential to conduct a complete site analysis to understand the property comprehensively. Ideally, this will include mapping the property and gathering data on local weather patterns, geology, hydrology, and topography. With this information in hand, you can create a scope of work that details what needs to be done to prepare the land for construction. By taking the time to assess and plan for your site development project correctly, you can help ensure that the result is a safe and functional facility that meets all your needs. Let’s learn the ins and outs of the analysis and permitting process that takes place before a new telecom site is developed.

The evolution of communications networks has resulted in an increased demand for higher bandwidth and capacity, which has driven the need for new Outside Plant (OSP) fiber construction to support data transport over long distances. OSP fiber construction involves the installation of underground cables, which can be a complex and time-consuming process. When performing outside plant construction potential issues can arise such as the damaging of utilities already underground through traditional trenching and digging methods. To ensure damage to pre-existing utilities does not occur, the method of vacuum installation is used. Let’s take a look at what vacuum installation is and how it is employed in the field to help safely and efficiently install and maintain the fiber.
