network and conduit integrity

  1. 1. IT infrastructure and fiber optic conduit integrity Brad Ring Keywords: Integrated master schedule, best practices, fiber optic conduit integrity IT infrastructure and fiber optic conduit integrity Technology leadership, System engineering, Transportation, tolling, ITS, intelligent transportation system, fiber optic cable, system integration, design review, requirements review, cap ex, op ex, testing, review, schedule, scalability, maintainability.Article extract: To protect $1.5 million fiber network in a greenfield rural environment mice and critters must be prevented from inhabiting and destroying the 40-mile duct bank. 1
  2. 2. Methodology 1. Use mandrel test to ensure duct bank is free from pests and debris, also verifies bending radius for fiber is not exceeded. 2. Use mechanical plugs to seal conduits once cable is pulled. Foam plugs below will not stop mice from eating through. 2
  3. 3. Initial design The example below illustrates the original design SH45S Toll Road Mice Problem Mama mouse and baby mice already in fiber pull box, ready to chew through fiber cables and disappear into duct bank. 3
  4. 4. Revised design The example below illustrates the revised design Figure 3. Mandrel secured to the pulling line and inserted into conduit Figure 4. Mechanical seals after test 4
  5. 5. Benefits of fiber optic integrity Operations and Maintenance: Proactively eliminates outages from mice and rodents. Eliminates maintenance calls related to such outages. Reliability: Improves reliability of network communication system, ensures FCA performance requirements can be met. 5
