We are going to be installing single mode fiber to another building which is about 1000 meters or 3280 feet away. The pipe is already there so we just need to run the cable through and Terminate the ends. We will be running 2 pairs of fiber and have to terminate 4+ Ends. what tools are required/needed and what are the best tools to get for this. Also I know it is a bit of a learning curve and fiber requires the ends to be very well terminated to get 100% consistency.
