Meeting The Demand of Telecommunications Network Design Installation

ElecComm - Careers in Wilmington, MA

The telecommunications industry is continually changing and Competitive Service Providers (CSPs) face a challenging market. Keeping pace with regulatory requirements, increasing capacity, and improving the reliability of a network infrastructure while maintaining high levels of customer service can be an overwhelming task. The telecommunication network stands at the threshold of another era of innovation that has been fueled by the exponential growth of fixed and mobile communications. End-users increasingly demand greater connectivity and hassle-free services on-the-go. And more technologies are being developed to close the gap between the real and virtual worlds.

The telecommunication network services that we deliver here in Boston, MA together with our best-of-breed technology equipment providers, will fulfill every need of your IT and telecommunication department. Our services span design, supply, application development, testing, commissioning, support, and managed services.

To be competitive, your network delivers the highest quality of service possible. And when you can intelligently and cost-effectively upgrade and expand your network, you will be poised to benefit from growing broadband opportunities. We can fix your troublesome telecommunication environment. Professional fiber optic splicing is just one of many ways to eliminate the bottlenecks that are throttling your ability to effectively communicate. Our telecommunication network installation services is guaranteed to reduce the frustration a poor data infrastructure presents to you and your employees. vOne of the most challenging decisions a telecommunications manager can make is choosing the proper design for an optical-fiber cabling plant. Optical-fiber cable, which has extremely high bandwidth, is a powerful telecommunications medium that supports voice, data, video, and telemetry/sensor applications. The effectiveness of the media is greatly diminished if proper connectivity is not designed into the system. Such connectivity allows for flexibility, manageability, and versatility.

Designers are aware that proper planning of a structured cabling system can save time and money. A cable that is installed for point-to-point links also should meet specifications for later upgrades as it becomes part of a much larger network. It will anticipate future applications and providing additional fibers for unforeseen applications. Also, interfacing with local service providers can also avoid duplication of cable, connecting hardware, and installation labor.

The emergence of a true service-oriented platforms has created growth opportunities for the telecommunications network. It allows service providers to introduce exciting and innovative services. All installations are fully compliant with the relevant networking standards. And workmanship is guaranteed.

ElecComm Netting, Lighting, and Poles - Boston, MA

Golf netting systems are a key element of opening a golf course. Before golf vourse can open, golf nets must be installed and inspected to ensure errant balls will stay inside the range and won't pose threat to people and property in close proximity.

But before installing a golf pole and netting system, here are some helpful information for designing an effective netting solution:

  • Size and dimension of the golf area
  • Environmental facts which includes weather, wind speed and soil condition. Also, state and local code compliance.
  • What would client prefer on the netting structure: Fixed, retractable or breakaway technology
  • Pole and netting type and height

Since all golf courses have unique specifications, our golf netting solutions made here in Boston, MA meet the distinct needs of course designers. If you have inquiries or specific concerns about golf netting system, contact ElecComm. We are glad to answer your queries.

Advantages of Using Underground High Voltage Cable

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 18, 2019
ElecComm Underground High Voltage Systems in Boston, MA

ElecComm's core business focus is on the installation, removal and maintenance of electric/communications distribution systems. For almost twenty years now, we’ve served municipalities across New England with underground and overhead electrical distribution system installation, maintenance, and removal services. Today we thought we’d share with you why municipalities invest so heavily in underground power distribution systems. Here are other advantages of using underground cables:

  • Appropriate in areas where overhead lines are complicated and not feasible to install
  • Low upkeep required
  • Minimal voltage drops
  • Lower fault incidence
  • Less prone to short circuits because they are less exposed to environmental elements
  • Theft and illegal connection issues are reduced
  • Does not endanger wildlife or low flying aircraft

Looking at these advantages, underground cable power lines offer more safe and secure power solutions for urban environments. To learn more about underground high voltage cable system, contact ElecComm.

Underground Cable Maintenance Procedures

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 11, 2019

Earlier we blogged about the necessity to systematically maintain underground high-voltage cables. Today we’d like to expand upon that topic and get into the details of what needs to be accomplished within your preventative maintenance program. We’ll also address our approach to corrective maintenance action should cable fault ever strike your underground cable system.

Underground high-voltage preventative cable maintenance includes:

  • Ground connections, cable joints and splices are inspected to verify their integrity and condition.
  • Switchgears, transformers, and other above-ground fixtures are checked for cleanliness and physical condition.
  • Dust and debris are removed from termination joint outer surfaces.
  • Performing several tests such as contact resistance tests on terminations, insulation resistance tests between ground connections and conductors. This is done to unveil any developing damage within the system.
  • Testing for defective electrical contacts and joints with infrared thermal scanning. Joints that appears to have an elevated temperature requires to be cleaned and re-torqued prior to re-testing.

Corrective maintenance is accomplished as a response to faults (e.g. damage resulting from digging, internal damaged wires, overloading, poor handling and installation, etc.). It includes:

  • Inspecting electric cable routes for potential defects following an excavation.
  • Insulation resistance testing to uncover faults between conductors and ground connections.
  • Tracking faulty sections through the use of a sheath tester and a cable fault locator.
  • Damaged electrical cable repairs, re-testing and re-commissioning.

Condition-Based Maintenance involves the inspection of underground power transmission cables and above-ground grid fixtures that have sustained partial defects. Condition-based maintenance services determine the kind of repairs that must be addressed immediately or in the near future. It’s essentially a health check-up for your high-voltage infrastructure.

For more information about underground cable maintenance process, contact ElecComm.

Why Regular Maintenance is Vital To Underground High Voltage Cables

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 27, 2019
ElecComm Underground high voltage cable installation in Boston, MA

Similar to overhead transmission lines, underground electrical cables and other auxiliary equipment will fail when regular maintenance is not accomplished. The following are common issues that can threaten underground transmission line operability:

  • High Pressure Fluid and Gas Filled Pipe (HPFF and HPGF) cable types or Self-Contained Fluid Filled (SCFF) electrical cable types are vulnerable to sustain fluid leakages.
  • Fault in buried power cables can happen due to bare neutrals, molded joints in splices, or accidental excavation.
  • Powerful winds and falling tree branches may not affect buried power cables but trees with deep root system ousting in a storm can root out underground wires.

Faults can be fixed, albeit expensively. Repairs are complicated and tedious. Prevention is a more profitable solution. Scheduled maintenance and upkeep must not be taken for granted in order to make sure the power distribution system is reliable and safe.

Contact ElecComm to discuss our wide variety of underground power cable maintenance and repair services.
