Many operators believe that their long-haul fiber network will never need to be upgraded. This has been proven to be untrue time and time again due to population booms and increasing downstream demand. Traditional future proofing requires a large investment in spare fiber that may not be used for a long time.
Knet microduct is perfect for long haul applications. Once microduct is in place, cables can be blown in at great distances. Additional microduct capacity can be included and saved for future expansion at a fraction of the cost of additional fiber capacity. When additional capacity is required, new cables cab be installed within the spare microduct without the need for additional construction costs and installed with a minimal crew.
