POF installation follows familiar methods employed in traditional cabling, including routing through conduits or along surfaces. Due to its smaller diameter, it can often still be installed in places that are less easy accessible to UTP copper cabled. Contrary to UTP, POF can conveniently be installed alongside power cables, be it in cable ducts, tubes or ligting systems. Termination is a straightforward process without connectors, merely involving cutting the cable, and insertion of POF cables into equipment connectors via the patented OptoLock™.
