Splice some fibre - rough cost?
After yesterdays winds we've got some damage to a walkway which houses some of my fibers. It will possibly have to come down so I have been asked to give them a rough price. So what do you reckon;
1 cable which has 2 pairs connected and possibly 2 more pairs unused.
Another cable which has 1 pair connected and possibly 3 more pairs unused.
The cables will need to be extended by around 80-100 meters therefore 2 splices on each core, 16 cores in total. Also it will run externally around the buildings so will need some exterior grade trunking.
Also can anyone explain this statement
We might end up mighty close to the lower 220m limit
The standard specifies a distance capability between 220 metres (62.5/125 µm fiber with low modal bandwidth) and 550 metres (50/125 µm fiber with high modal bandwidth). In practice, with good quality fiber and terminations, 1000BASE-SX will usually work over significantly longer distances.
