Fiber optic cable and fiber-based installation accessories are commonly used to connect the network and/or audio-visual systems between two remote buildings. Fiber provides several installation benefits, including:
Within the buildings, an indoor-rated riser or plenum jacketed cable is typically integrated. Between the buildings, an outdoor-rated or direct burial cable is typically integrated. Outdoor-rated cables feature waterproof jacketing and are typically installed in conduit, whereas direct burial cables feature an additional strength member (such as armoring) and are typically buried directly in the soil. If installing conduit, a 1/2" or greater diameter is typically recommended for bare fiber optic cable and a 1” or greater diameter is typically recommended for pre-terminated fiber optic cable assuming the connectors are staggered and wrapped.
Enclosures, such as indoor/outdoor wall-boxes with integrated couplers, typically connect the indoor and outdoor fiber optic cable runs. They provide a secure transition point between cable types, manage excess cable service loops, and protect the small fiber optic strands.
