Spanish term or phrase: Canalización de Fibra Optica
English translation:Laying of Fibre-Optic Cables
Of course, more context would be useful but I think this is how "canalización" normally translates in telecoms contexts.

To me, wiring is a much smaller-scale activity, whereas laying cables suggests bridging large distances.

For US English it would be Fiber-Optic.
