Noel Averruz NT1310 05-21-15 Unit 10 Assignment 1: Fiber–Optic Installation Compare conduit and duct/tray installation. When would each one be the best solution? When pulling cable in conduit, all transition points, such as those going from conduit to pull box or exiting the conduit, should be kept smooth. Sometimes the addition of a piece of conduit beyond the transition will keep the cable from resting on a sharp edge. Bushings designed to fit the ends of conduit are also available. Cable trays or ladder racks provide a convenient, safe, efficient location in which to install optical-fiber cable. Trays can be installed in ceilings, below floors and in riser shafts. Some trays are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, so they can be placed below the ceiling and in the line of vision. Tray installation usually precedes pulling the fiber cable, because trays can be used for many other types of cable. This means that a tray distribution system may already exist. These routes may be used for installing new cable if they run to appropriate locations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
