Fibre Optic Cabling Services For Your Every Need


If you need super-fast fibre optic cabling in and around Oxfordshire and London, then get in touch with us today, and we can send an installation team out to get started.

Likewise, if you require emergency repairs or a top-class maintenance service, then please don’t hestitate to give us a call.


When it comes to fibre optic cabling, we’ve got all the services you could possibly need.

These days, more and more buildings are being hooked up with modern fibre optic cables, which could present numerous issues.

If you’re in need of assistance, then Commswise is here to provide it.

Our Fibre optic cabling installation team have experience in all types of optical data cabling. Whether multi mode or single mode full installation or just terminating and testing. 

Both Multi Mode & Single Mode come in 2 types:

– Loose tube fibre is favoured for external usage due to added protection from moisture ingress

– Tight buffered which is more flexible and ideal for indoor use

We employ the best technique for terminating – fibre optic fusion splicing to minimise loss. We also provide a rapid response fibre optic emergency repair service.

Fibre Optic Cable Installation

We employ a team of highly trained fibre optic cable engineers who can install any fibre optic cable for you.

As of right now, we currently offer two different varieties; Multi Mode and Single Mode – more about these below.

Each one has some advantages and disadvantages that make them ideal for specific scenarios. A member of our team will be more than happy to talk you through both options and explain which cable may be best for your installation.


Both of our fibre optic cables come in two different types as well:


Loose Tube Fibre: This is most commonly used for external installations as there’s more protection from moisture ingress.


Tight Buffered: Often used indoors as it offers a higher degree of flexibility.


Commswise engineers can help you with the full installation of a fibre optic network, or we can just take care of the termination of cables. We use the best technique for termination – fibre optic fusion splicing – which results in minimal loss.
