Fiber Optics Cable Installation and Splicing Helps Meet the Demand of the Market - Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 19, 2014

Fiber optics cable installation and splicing is being done in many businesses in Boston. This is done to improve transmission services and trading systems such as those found in telecommunication networks.

Because of a multitude of desirable properties inherent in fiber optics, older technologies are now being rapidly replaced as information technology and digital transmission move forward. With fiber optics, telecommunication networks in Boston, MA, make it possible as well as profitable to send and receive vast quantities of important information from place to place even at long distances. Such networks need to meet and exceed modern demands and there is no better way of doing so than by using optical fibers.

For various reasons, fiber optics cable installation and splicing is preferred in establishing and implementing links present in both local area networks and metropolitan area networks. Although they are hair-thin, optical fibers have colossal channel capacity making them far better than copper wires can offer. Another advantage of using fiber optic cables in configuring telecommunication networks is their immunity from various disturbances.

Contact ElecComm to find out how fiber optics installation and splicing can make your business thrive more.

Upgrade Current Utility Lines

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 27, 2012

Northwest New Jersey is upgrading power lines. They will be upgrading the existing 230-kilovolt transmission line for about 45 miles, adding 500 kilovolts onto towers that would be as tall as 195 feet in some cases.

Older electric line infrastructure regularly needs to be updated to accommodate growing populations, new roads and buildings. Often overhead lines need to be buried, or additional lines need to be added.

Upgrades are often very unnecessary. Often this type of work needs to be done to prevent power outages. When power lines cannot bring electricity to individuals' homes because tree limbs bring down the lines to homes and business during storms, upgrades and repairs are needed.

If your town or city needs to upgrade current utility lines, contact ElecCom.
