How many Opti-Loop® FOS snow shoes do I need for my new deployment, and how much reserve fiber can each one store?

Generally speaking, we recommend installing five pair per linear mile. Stored fiber length is dependent on how far apart a pair is installed, with the total slack stored equaling twice that distance. In a typical span, a pair will store approximately 150 feet of reserve fiber. Opti-Loop® FOS snow shoes are only sold in pairs. Beyond slack storage, Opti-Loop® FOS snow shoes should be installed at splice locations to dress cables on the strand.
