FuturePath protects the fiber while providing a permanent pathway for upgrades or changes, as well as for main communication needs. In some cases, FuturePath can also represent a revenue opportunity for leasing or renting access to difficult to access right-of-ways. There is no significant degradation in fiber optic sensing effectiveness using FuturePath and it has the added benefit of being locatable. Conduit placement handles more challenging installation obstacles and can reduce costly fiber splice points.
