On top of a mountain I have a microwave radio broadband transmitter, but i want to link it up to another transmitter on another knoll up the mountain and extend coverage into another valley below.
This involves an ethernet link of 480m - no problem for me - typically I would use a VDSL bridge, but there will be 110v AC power running in the same duct in the trench.
I am mainly concerned with the 110v untwisted cables inducting energy into the twisted pair cat5. A parallel electric fence up the mountain does this to another line that i have 110v running 50m and the fence prevents a homeplug bridge from working over it.
I have never tested any DSL running parallel to AC power over such a distance and no one can confirm to me if it will work so I figured its probably better to go with fibre.
Now I know where to get the rolls of fibreoptic cable from - ideal electrical can order it in for me, but I dont know what I need to crimp (or equiv) the ends on. I know you can get kits but not really sure what to ask for, or what the tools I need would be called. They dont really deal with very much fibre at the local ideal branch so i want to specify what to order rather than let them tell me.
Of course if anyone here can say VDSL will work running parallel to a 110 or 240v cable for 500m then that would be awesome. The cables are running inside a tube the size of a garden hose.
