Locating Telecommunication Cables
Telecommunication cables – copper wires and fibre optics run underground connecting to homes, office buildings, workshops, shopping centres, mine sites, sporting complexes, industrial areas and public places.
These cables are commonly run in high-density polyethene (HDPE) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) conduit piping to protect the cabling with a junction box installed where cabling is required to change direction.
Or for long-distance country installations, an armoured shielding cable is ploughed underground with a detection tape.
