Criteria for optical cable installation with minimal existing infrastructure
Recommendation ITU-T L.163 describes criteria for the installation of optical fibre cables defined in Recommendation ITU-T L.110 in remote areas with lack of usual infrastructure for installation including the procedures of cable-route planning, cable selection, cable-installation scheme selection, cable tension and temperature consideration and the handling, bend protection and river/lake closing of the cable together with pilot tests and training for installation.

This Recommendation also describes how to mitigate the considerable risks and/or issues to which the optical fibre cable may be exposed when infrastructures are minimal during installation, maintenance and operation procedures.
