Custom Network Solutions
FiberLight offers educational, healthcare, government and property developers who own campuses with multiple locations which are either connected or not connected by public right-of-way, the ability to have a complete campus network built and/or managed by FiberLight.
Communications Wiring and Construction Standards
FiberLight has developed both construction and wiring standards for campus buildings. These standards provide a single physical distribution system for voice, non-voice signaling, data, and video systems. The standards support both academic and residential buildings and services. All standards are based on the EIA/TIA and IEEE standards for commercial buildings.
The construction standards include exterior trench, duct, manhole, and Pull Box infrastructure, as well as interior terminals, conduits, and cable trays.
Communications Project Planning Guidelines
For the convenience of planners, architects and consultants, we provide a “quick-start” set of guidelines for communication projects. These projects summarize the essential inside and outside construction standards and the inside construction and wiring requirements for projects. They also provide a simple list of cost estimating guidelines to support “order of magnitude” budgeting for project communications. FiberLight will provide detailed cost projections for any project under a campus work order bid request.
Fiber Optic Cable Plant
FiberLight designs and constructs the campus fiber optic network as part of both renovations and new building construction.
The campus fiber cable plant is built on building-to-building cable segments which are spliced in buildings to form the required fiber point-to-point circuit or through the design of a campus ring with laterals into each building for access. Fiber segment configuration has evolved over the 15 years of cable placement, and cable segments are composed of varying counts of multi-mode or multi-mode and single-mode fibers.
The service can be procured in a number of ways to meet the needs of the campus owner. The different models include IRU purchase with annual maintenance, monthly lease, or a hybrid IRU purchase with managed services contract.
Documentation of the fiber cable plant, including routes, composition of segments, measurements, test results and proposed expansion is maintained by FiberLight’s engineering division.
FiberLight can also assist the campus in the review and documentation of all antenna installations on campus property, including broadcast and private radio, cellular, wireless data, and satellite reception.
