Fiber Installation on Tower

Wed Oct 14, 2015 7:25 pm

Has anyone here ever ran fiber up about 300 feet on a tower? This is something I am looking at doing and would love to get some advice on how to run the fiber up the cable. Just a little uncertain about how to get all connectors hooked up on the tower.

I have ran fiber up a tower before. Typically I only do it for one of two reasons...
1. Long run (Ethernet is 100m)
2. Powered tower and do not want RF to enter my data transmission

I use armored fiber cable and usually bring it into a NEMA enclosure through a waterproof gland and terminate it normally.

I am not sure if I answered your question. If you need both power and fiber, I saw an ad in a publication I get for Senko ( that sells connectors that may help you terminate fiber and power (they may also provide cable).

Feel free to message me, I will help if I can.
