A large electricity transmission company based in the Middle East needed to upgrade their communications network using the overhead power transmission lines. AFL's SkyWrap® cable was used to upgrade older areas of the network to join up with existing OPGW installations already in existence. The SkyWrap solution completed crucial ring networks to provide data communications between substations while also removing the need to replace existing ground wire that is well within its operational life time. The SkyWrap solution has been so successful that there have been further installations since to join up more of the network.

The white paper explores the advantages and typical applications of single-jacket and double-jacket ADSS cable designs.
Video that shows AFL OPGW installation. This type of cable can be installed using typical conductor and shield wire stringing methods.
Increasing the fiber count in each individual buffer tube to 24 fibers reduces the size, weight, and cost of the ADSS cable.
Carlos Escobar, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Sales Manager for Utilites for AFL, elaborates on how the new configurations of the Flex-Span® ADSS cable benefit the customer.
Selecting the best bonding assembly configuration is dependent on proximity from the termination or suspension hardware to the support structure, terrain and wind conditions and tower hardware.
Flex-Span designs are optimized for a broader combination of fiber counts and span lengths, providing ADSS system designers more flexibility in their product selection.
