ITU-T L.153/L.48 (03/2003)

Mini-trench installation technique
This Recommendation describes the so-called mini-trenching technique, that allows the installation in small trenches of underground optical cables in ducts or directly buried copper cables. The advantages of this technique over conventional cable laying technologies lie essentially in its speed of execution, lower cost, significantly lower environmental impact and limited disruption to road traffic and, as a consequence of the previous items, easiness in obtaining permits for the taking over of public area.
