Where there's a road,
there's a way.
And the way is FiberTRAX®.
FiberTRAX is a transformational technology that delivers connectivity that is affordable and on-demand. It’s perfect for fiber installers, Internet Service Providers, municipalities, and anyone looking to distribute optical fiber – from rural markets to smart cities.
Ground-breaking by not breaking ground.
minimally disruptive Installation (MDI):
Our patented process “paints” optical fiber directly onto paved surfaces, bonding and sealing it in durable protective coatings. No digging. No trenching. No accidentally cutting other utilities. Environmentally friendly. And it can withstand traffic within minutes. We call it Minimally Disruptive Installation. Compared to other solutions, FiberTRAX also reduces lead times, installation and maintenance costs. The only thing we are disrupting is the fiber optic installation industry.
Rolling out connectivity lightning fast.
The TRAXtor, our state-of-the-art, automated, fiber-painting installation machine can deploy fiber at an incredible 1,000 feet (305 meters) per hour. The TRAXtor avoids existing and unseen underground hazards, and allows for shorter permitting, enhanced redundancy, and reduced costs. Projects once considered unconnectable or cost-prohibitive are now possible.
Organizations are turning to TRAXyL for solutions. Here’s why you should too.
Evolution of FiberTRAX
FiberTRAX installed on the surface is where it all began. With surface-mount FiberTRAX, the fiber cables are secured to the pavement with an ultra-violet cured resin. Then, a protective Top Coat is mixed, extruded over the top, and cured to protect the installation.
While FiberTRAX can be installed by hand, an installation machine was needed to speed up the process amd gain more efficiency. So, we designed and buit the first TRAXtor. The TRAXtor-SM can install surface-mount FiberTRAX, in a single pass, at around 1,000 feet per hour.
To enhance the durability further, we developed flush-mount FiberTRAX, which embeds fiber optic cables into the surface layer of pavement. Technicians can install flush-mount FiberTRAX by hand, however, a new machine was needed to gain efficiency.
A TRAXtor capable of installing flush-mount FiberTRAX was designed and built. It creates a channel for the fiber cable, vacuums up the debris, lays the fiber in the channel, and secures it with the Top Coat. It does this all in a single pass at around 1,000 feet per hour.
