The article presents information on the Trenchless fiber networks from Teraspan Networks. Every organization with a road running between their buildings and the need to have a linked network has faced the same dilemma. Now a company called Teraspan Networks comes to the rescue with Trenchless fibre. It can also be used to connect the 75% of businesses in Great Britain that are within 2km of a fibre Point of Presence for big broadband but among the 95% of them not yet connected. TeraSpan has its own telecommunications license from the British Department of Trade and Industry so it can provide, manage, maintain and operate fibre optic networks and telecommunication systems throughout Great Britain. That includes digging the road up if it needs to. But Trenchless Fibre means they quickly cut a deep slit just wide enough for the cable to go down, then close it over and re-surface all in one continuous movement. Fibre options offered in this process are Single mode, up to 72 core, most commonly used for metro networks and Multimode, up to 24 core, for shorter point to point connections. Both can be deployed together in the same operation.
