Tripling Bandwidth in Record Time
If the future could be predicted, telecom infrastructure projects would be planned much differently. But the real world requires best-guess planning, and sometimes even the most experienced planners are surprised by sudden traffic spikes. When our customer found themselves with an overloaded infrastructure right before their busiest season, they gave us a simple challenge: make one simplex fiber handle the traffic of three.
Positioning a University for Growth
Today’s college student carries more devices than ever. And they expect their school to deliver constant, secure connectivity at every corner of campus. Many higher education institutions have older networks, built with a wide range of proprietary parts from different OEMs, all connecting to older single mode fiber. For one Integra customer, delivering always-up service was all about channelization.
Enhancing the Customer Experience with No New Fiber
Mobile providers, service providers and MSOs must innovate to stay competitive. They also can’t easily afford massive infrastructure projects. To boost bandwidth cost-effectively, they have to make the most of existing fiber. When our customer needed to upgrade their mobile backhaul without new infrastructure, they looked to our engineering team for help.

Maximizing the value of new fiber assets
From time to time, our customers find themselves with newly acquired fiber. Sometimes obtained as part of mergers or acquisitions, the specific end use of a given length of fiber isn’t always defined at the outset. When our customer, one of the largest hosted communications providers in New England, came into a 125km length of dark fiber, they asked Integra to help make the most of it.
Fixing the right problem
Sometimes an error is just an error. But Integra’s engineers are thorough types though, so when our customer’s 10g dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) span suddenly reported high rates of cyclic redundancy check (CRC) errors, we wondered if it was just a symptom of the problem. Turns out, it was. And our solution saved time, money and came with a bonus.
