A look at OPGW Cables

OPGW Cables are cables that contained specialized structures that can shield the cable from lightning strikes, provide space for fiber optics and give the cable electric grounding capabilities.


That is why these cables are used in electric lines, they are installed between electric poles to provide grounding while carrying fiber optic signals at the same time, which means that they have a dual application of both grounding and communications.



Many electric companies lease these cables when unused to other companies that might need those transmission lines, effectively becoming another source of revenue.
