Air Blown Fibre Installation and Maintenance

Air Blown Fibre (ABF) is a cost effective solution, provides speed of installation and is a greener solution compared to copper cable. The system uses a compressed air installation method and is capable of blowing single coated fibres or bundles of fibre through a route of bends and twists. The fibre units are only blown into the ducts as they are needed, allowing the blown fibre system to develop as the network needs to expand.
