What is Touchless Locating?

What does your cable locating process look like right now? Typically, it’s made up of several simple, yet time-consuming steps. Your average locate begins with the technician accessing the outside plant to set up the transmitter, then performing and marking the locate, and finally returning to the network access point to collect the transmitter and revert the network to its originally grounded condition.

Touchless Locating virtually eliminates this lengthy and manual process. We install a permanent transmitter at your Central Office/Headend that can be remotely activated via phone. With just one phone call, our Touchless Locating equipment places the locate signal on the cable and technicians are ready to locate using any standard receiver – no outside plant access required. What’s better? We do it all for about 1% of the total cost of the build!

How does it work?

Locates are as easy as making a phone call, no manual setup or teardown required.
