fiber dstv installation


Dstv fiber installation - How its done

Dstv over fibre installation can be explained as a single fibre network working alone transporting dstv frequency signals.In some complex installations it can be used along the same fibre with the internet by giving the signal a different wave length,  

Understanding dstv over fibre

Dstv fiber installation gets it fiber source from the dstv dish where IF frequencies are changed to light signals then transported down stream through fibre cable and termination devices to reach the last user “dstv decoder “. This installation can be done over long distance with a very minimal signal loss of like 2% over 100 km compared to the normal coaxial cabling. See also communal installers
