Fiber optic cabling is a great way to facilitate communications for your company or business. With fiber optics, you get a more durable network, faster and more consistent speeds, and cost-effective savings that you can enjoy for many years to come. Here at Airo Splicing, LLC, we offer fiber network cabling with quality materials and competitive rates. One of the questions that we get often is about the method of installation: aerial or subterranean? While we can assist you with both forms of installation, here are a few things that might make you consider aerial cable placement.

Aerial cable placement works well for people who would prefer to utilize their existing utility poles for the installation. Rather that boring or trenching underground, utility poles can be used for aerial cable placement quite well, although you will need to have a support strand in place for this method to be effective.

In addition to utilizing existing features, aerial cable placement is an ideal solution for people who are looking to upgrade or remodel their structure in the near or semi-distant future. Because the cables are suspended in the air, they won’t require remodeling or reorganizing should the footprint of your property change.

Aerial cable placement can come with a minor risk of damages due to the interaction with wind and other elements, but it also makes fixing any potential damages easy and quick.
