The FPAC Fiber optics cable is robust, thin, lightweight, flexible, rodent-proof, waterproof, fire resistance, specially designed for rural and any harsh environment based on submarine cable Whereas the cable is a well welded-steel-tube armored that can be laid without any specialized equipment such as in many ways including shallow direct burying, aerial wiring, submerging; and that too without splicing the cable up to 10 Miles and it has been designed in the concept of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) laying without demanding heavy machinery nor high-tech fiber splicing. Such an initiative not only reduces the cost and duration of installation but also caters the lower OPEX in the long run. The cable can be laid in a utility trench or even in the sewerage system with clamps. This is another justification on the installation part as that the cable can be laid in any environment from land to water to air; thereby avoiding additional construction work for a "special" environment that comes across and it fits for any Rural to any urban communities for any applications likewise air, underwater, underground.

The Utilities Technology Council (UTC) is a global association focused on the intersection of telecommunications and utility infrastructure. UTC gives voice to the men and women in the utility workforce who create and maintain critical communications systems that help keep the lights and the water flowing. We represent the hands-on folks in the field and control rooms responding to storms, deploying new technologies, and securing energy and water infrastructure from all kinds of threats. UTC sits at the nexus between the energy and telecommunications industries, which are rapidly converging and becoming more interdependent.

Embedded throughout utilities’ critical equipment is a series of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) networks providing utilities with greater control, protection and situational awareness over their infrastructure. These networks are so embedded into the grid that they are nearly as important to reliability as the electricity which flows through the lines. Most utilities in the U.S. and Canada deploy some form of their own “private” ICT networks alongside the towers, lines, poles, and meters that make up their infrastructure. ICT networks are critical for day-to-day operational reliability, efficiency, resilience, storm response/recovery, cybersecurity, modernization, situational awareness, and the integration of distributed resources. Not only are these networks essential for the daily task of delivering electricity, as demands for utilities change, ICT networks are the key to Utility 2.0—likely a more decentralized, efficient, cleaner industry giving consumers more control over their usage.

Through advocacy, education and collaboration, UTC creates a favorable business, regulatory and technological environment for organizations that own, manage or provide critical utility telecommunications systems.
