Seeking advice on Direct-Bury Multimode Fiber installation
I live south of Hamilton and I have a outbuilding about 250m from my house that I would like to extend my network to. I assume at this distance I'm talking about fiber.
Based on the research I've done today I'm looking at either 50/125 or 62.5/125 direct bury cable. I'd like speeds of 1 GB/s, but could start at 100mbit and upgrade later if cost dictates. Cost of course is always a concern. I plan to install the cable myself and hire someone to terminate (unless I can do that myself?)
1) Anyone know of a GTHA retail supplier, or a canadian website, for bulk fiber direct-bury cable?
2) Any recommendations for a good value fiber/copper converter. I guess the other option would be a couple switches with SFP (mini-GBIC) with a couple transceivers.
3) Any recommendations for someone local who can terminate the cables? (or can I do that myself?)
Appreciate any input. Thanks
