What is Fiber and Why is it so Important?

A fiber-optic cable is made up of incredibly thin strands of glass or plastic known as optical fibers; one cable can have as few as two strands or as many as several hundred. Each strand is less than a tenth as thick as a human hair and can carry something like 25,000 telephone calls, so an entire fiber-optic cable can easily carry several million calls.

Big Orange Spools Everywhere

What are they for?

You may have noticed in the past few years that there are many construction crews operating down the sides of your local highways, roads, and streets. They normally have a mini excavator, perhaps a Ditch Witch, or what is referred to as a horizontal boring machine that looks like a drill-rig with the drill at an angle. They also normally have a truck or trailer in tow holding large spools of plastic pipe.

Increased Productivity with Unified Communications

There was a time when work typically meant going to an office, so it’s not surprising that traditional business phone systems were built around a single, static location. Depending on size, a facility could install a premise-based key system or PBX or could choose central office-based Centrex. Either of the on-site options typically involved a capital expenditure, took up space, anything from a closet to a room. It entailed maintenance, repair, and general "care and feeding” of the system, so the user either had to hire a telecom manager to handle moves, changes, and software updates or pay a contractor for support.
