Providing fiber-optic broadband internet service at symmetrical 1-Gigabit per second will be a major effort taking several years to complete. The Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB) has over 473,000 customers and serves not only Knoxville but parts of seven surrounding counties.
Adam Crocker’s team is responsible for fiber-optic aerial and underground construction, all fusion splicing and service installation.
Adam will discuss KUB’s broadband division and outside plant fiber-optic construction techniques. He will highlight municipal broadband fundamentals, passive optical network architecture, means and methods of construction, fusion splicing, and troubleshooting.
