Fiber cable installation is a crucial step in the deployment of fiber optic networks. There are two main methods for installing fiber optic cables: cable pulling and cable blowing(cable jetting). Both methods have their own advantages and disadvantages, but cable blowing has emerged as a preferred choice due to its numerous benefits. In this article, we will discuss the advantages of fiber cable blowing compared to cable pulling.

1. Speed

Cable blowing is a much faster process than cable pulling. In most cases, cable blowing can install fiber optic cables up to 50 times faster than cable pulling. This means that the installation process can be completed in a fraction of the time required for cable pulling.

2. Cost-effectiveness

Cable pulling requires significant manual labor and the use of special equipment, which can be expensive. Cable blowing, on the other hand, requires less manual labor and specialized equipment, making it a more cost-effective option.

3. Less Damage to Cables

Cable pulling can result in cable damage due to the stress placed on the cables during the pulling process. Cable blowing, on the other hand, uses air pressure to install the fiber optic cables, reducing the risk of cable damage.


4. Longer Distances

Cable pulling is limited by the physical strength of the installers and the length of the pulling rope. Cable blowing, on the other hand, can cover longer distances, making it a more efficient option for longer installations.

5. Increased Efficiency

Cable pulling requires multiple people to be involved in the installation process, which can lead to a slow and inefficient process. Cable blowing, on the other hand, requires less manual labor and can be done by a smaller team, resulting in increased efficiency.


The working site of optical cable blowing

In conclusion, cable blowing offers several advantages over cable pulling. It is faster, cost-effective, less damaging to cables, can cover longer distances, and is more efficient. As the demand for fiber optic networks continues to grow, the use of cable blowing for fiber optic cable installations will likely become even more widespread.
