Buried coaxial cables of all gauges can be accessed with minimal disruption for conversion to fiber optics. Kabel X allows operators to quickly and inexpensively remove the core of coaxial cables leaving an empty sheath. This empty sheath is then reused as a conduit to blow fiber optic cable.
Kabel-X has the ability to extract up to 1500 feet of coaxial cable in a single pull using one crew, in under one work day. Since fiber optic systems are passive, the conversion allows operators to dispense with amplifiers reducing utility and maintenance costs.
