Part of: Pipelines 2002: Beneath Our Feet: Challenges and Solutions


Although using sewers as an avenue for the installation of Fiber Optic Cabling is a relatively new concept, there have been several major technological advances in the installation process over the past year. This paper discusses the installation of conduits using a robotically controlled process. The robotic installation process is further enhanced by the use of a cured-in-place lining rehabilitation system, of the host pipe, during placement of the fiber conduit. When the installation has been completed the host infrastructure has been given a new life and the need to perform any disruptive excavation for the installation of telecommunication cabling minimized.
