ElecComm Begins Fiber Splicing for the Open Cape Project

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 04, 2012

ElecComm splice crews commenced fiber splicing on the Open Cape Project. Crews are installing fiber optic cable ends into Coyote splice enclosures. The cable ends will be butt spliced together in order to complete the main run or backbone cable for the project. Each splice location needs to have a 144 fiber strands fusion spliced together. Once the backbone is complete, work will begin on laterals – connecting municipal buildings, businesses , and communication hubs.

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 23, 2012

FIBER ROLLING: ElecComm's Angel DeJesus (center) attaches an orange winch line to the inaugural spool of the OpenCape Network fiber optic cabling this week in Brockton, MA, while Christian DeJesus (left) and Bob Mcgyvers (right) help ready the 9000-foot long cable.

The winch line pulls the fiber to the top of utility poles along the network's route. This first two-mile segment marks the start of the regional network's construction, which is funded by federal BTOP and state broadband funds. CapeNet, which is coordinating the build, said the planned 350 miles of fiber will provide core fiber optic infrastructure on Cape Cod and across large portions of the south coast and Plymouth areas. The company expects to complete construction within 10 months.
