    Deep Fiber Solutions of Roswell, Georgia premiered this coax to fiber technology in 2014.
    Removes coaxial cable (usually 3/4 inch OD, 75 ohm) dielectric and center conductor,
    creating a “mini-duct” for new multi-strand fiber optic cable.

    Since then, they successfully used this technology in two Chicago area locations.

    Chicago financial district (under LaSalle Street station’s RR right-of-way)
    An earlier contractor (failed work) had damaged one coaxial cable, so it was unusable.

    Buffalo Grove, under a lake.
