Performance Utility Supply recently supplied materials to our client, HP Communications, for their telecommunications project. HP Communications is full turnkey OSP/ISP contractor whose mission statement parallels Performance Utility Supply's: committing themselves to quality and the highest standards of workmanship. They have offices across the United States with over 300 in-house employees.
This particular project has HP Communications laying the fiber optic cable and microduct for the Zayo Group, who is constructing and operating a telecommunications equipment shelter for a fiber optic regeneration facility. The purpose of the equipment shelter is to regenerate the fiber optic signal and be used for data transfer. The project includes cast in place concrete foundations, a pre-manufacture equipment shelter, and back up generator.
Performance Utility Supply worked with Chris Dotinga, San Diego Project Manager at HP Communications, to supply them with Duraline 8/10 Microduct & OFS Microfiber. Microduct is very small in size and the fiber is even smaller because it goes inside the microduct. Duraline MicroDuct allows you to expand your fiber network and increase bandwidth as your needs increase. To get the microfiber into the microduct, HP is using a CONDUX Fiber Optic Cable Blower; the Gulfstream 400 deluxe fiber-optic blower.
It will run from El Centro, CA to Yuma, AZ; around 60 miles of cable.
