Product Selection 

THE BELOW IS A SAMPLE SELECTION OF BEST-IN-CLASS PRODUCTS AND TECHNOLOGIES  

NANOFIBER STAINLESS STEEL SOLUTION AND NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE  

Roman Krawczyk, Chief Engineer for P2P/ nanoFIBER™, assesses the challenges to design a broadband network with multi-strand singlemode armored fiber optic cables that can be installed for all weather conditions and offers significant cost and structural advantages over current non-armored and aluminum interlock armored solutions in the market today. His team has developed several solutions that exceed broadband network engineers’ expectations. 

nanoFIBER has designed and developed OEM Solutions for top manufacturers and ISP Providers that are

currently used in the market today for: 

  • AT&T 
  • Verizon 
  • Spectrum  
  • Sumitomo 
  • Corning (NDA) 
  • CommScope (NDA) 

NANOFIBER STAINLESS STEEL FIBER OPTIC/TRAXyL SOLUTION 

Additionally, nanoFIBER™ is the only armored fiber optic solution that can be directly fed into the road groove formed by the patented TRAXtor cable/topcoat deployment machine.  

The Virginia-based company manufactures a patented adhesive and TRAXtor machine to deploy fiber to any road surface. TRAXtor machine can install nanoFIBER™ cable at an average speed of 1,000 feet per hour, with a two-to-three-person crew.  

The TRAXtor etches the paved surface, creating a channel 8 to 15mm wide and deep. The minimal debris generated by the small etch is vacuumed by the TRAXtor and can be disposed of in bags (this is unlike micro-trenching where debris is disposed of by trucks).  

All in the same forward motion the nanoFIBER™ cable is inserted into the channel and a highly durable resin backfills the groove and cable payload to seal the cable into the pavement surface.  

The protective coating is cured in under an hour, allowing traffic and pedestrians to resume with no impact on operations.  

FiberTRAX nanoFIBER™ can accommodate from 2 to 288 fibers which is perfect for last-mile broadband and campus-like environments.  

TRAXyL solution lowers costs, saves time, and minimizes permitting. 

**See attached Point 2 Point White Paper “Camp Loyaltown” for the full cost analysis, bid process, and testimonial from the IT Department.  

Issues considered for both the inner and outer jacket were the fiber optic cable’s ability to withstand harsh environments, and expansion and contraction associated with radical temperature changes in road surfaces. Additionally, the outer diameter of the armored cable could not exceed the width of the road groove and allow the TRAXyL topcoat to easily be applied for a smooth operation. Furthermore, in the unlikely case of water leakage caused by road punctures, the cable must resist water breaching the inner fiber optic strands within the cabling jacket.   

nanoFIBER™ developed a 24-strand single-mode cable that would exceed project expectations. The nanoFIBER™ stainless-steel armored 24 F Indoor/Outdoor SM G657A@ OD 4.0mm Model #SM2424NA2-

4.0 cable allowed for fiber upgrades and additional future applications. 

The latest development evolution of the collaboration between P2P/TRAXyl has achieved up to 288 strands per single pass.  

The stainless-steel armor provided the gauge thickness to ensure crush and vermin resistance, as well as meeting harsh weather conditions. Water Blocking material is added to protect against a breach of the outer jacket. The water-blocking material absorbs any moisture maintains the integrity of the fiber cable and protects the fiber optic strands within the cabling jacket. Kevlar is added to strengthen the cable when pulled through the TRAXtor machine and maintain a smooth rollout of the fiber into the road groove.   

Finally, a Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) outer jacket is added to the cable to eliminate carcinogens associated with fire as well as meet Department of Transportation specifications.

SAMPLING COST BENEFITS 

ELAN ENGINEERING  

According to Mike Refalo, President of ELAN Engineering, “The underground construction portion of the project takes the most time.  nanoFIBER has partnered with TRAXyL which can install up to 4000 feet per day of NanoFIBER without inner duct along roadways and bridges. 

However, In rural “Right of Ways “plowing versus boring inner ducts, using nanoFIBER™ will increase the average installation from 450 feet to 3000 feet per day per crew.  

The small diameter of nanoFIBER requires a ¾” diameter inner duct versus the standard 1¼” diameter inner duct.  Saving money and increasing the installation rate.  The smaller diameter fiber and inner duct is optimal for blown fiber installation.  Again, increasing construction rate. 

AHRC SOLUTION (TRAXyL/nanoFIBER™ Winning Bid)  

“TRAXyL/nanoFIBER™ flush road solution met all bid requirements. According to Joseph Milone, Director of AHRC Network Solutions states, the “FiberTRAX” solution is an amazing technology. The flush road deployment was far superior to any surface-mounted options.  TRAXyL provided the best price compared to micro trenching. Instead of months to complete with bulldozers, ariel wires, and disrupting the camp, the TRAXyL/nanoFIBER™ bid promised the whole project for Fiber network installation in three  (3) days to fiber connectivity in two (2) days! Almost too good to be true.”  

OHIO DEPT OF TRANSPORTATION  

The ODOT bridge in Ohio installed surface-mount FiberTRAX nearly three years ago (it has seen snow and plowing, and it is a surface-mount variant that is more exposed) 

Ohio installation was supposed to be a one-year project now in year three. It provides connectivity to a cellphone tower and a community on the other side of the Stillwater River from West Milton Ohio. No other bridge attachments were allowed, and it was too expensive and time-consuming to bore under the river. 

TESTIMONIAL AND AWARD SAMPLINGS 

MIKE REFALO PRESIDENT, ELAN ENGINEERING  

Mike Refalo, President of ELAN Engineering with over 50 years of network engineering and data center design has tested many fiber optic cabling solutions that must provide the functions of a conduit, flexible bend radius, protection against harsh environments, and vermin attacks while meeting budgetary constraints. 

nanoFIBER™ stainless steel design met all his requirements with advanced water blocking allowing installation with less than 48” of cover.  Opening up to multiple installation systems while increasing underground construction build rate.  For broadband, this allowed for lower construction costs and providing service to homes faster. 

Mike Refalo is available to discuss the benefits of nanoFIBER™ and working with their team of engineers and professional support staff. miker@elanengineering.com 

JOSEPH MILONE DIRECTOR AHRC

Overcoming Airport Infrastructure Obstacles with Armored nanoFIBER American Security Today Award Winning Armored Fiber Optic for Airports nanoFIBER  

CHARLOTTE AIRPORT 

Mr. Hobbs is the Infrastructure Admin at CLT.  He states, “Our mission is to be the preferred airport and airline hub by providing the highest quality product for the lowest possible cost.  Our product – the fiber infrastructure – is a high-quality, diverse, future-resistant, optical fiber backbone system that provides the foundation of almost all of the networks that make this airport function.  

Mr. Hobbs was up to the task of finding the right fiber optic solution to be the backbone of the airport’s data networks. The challenge of finding the right armor was to review side by side the advantages of the Aluminum Interlock Armor and the new NanoFIBER stainless steel coiled micro armor.  

Results: When comparing 1000 feet of armored fiber optic cabling, Micro Armor Fiber™ is approximately 65% smaller and 75% lighter than Aluminum Interlocking Armor. The NanoFIBER micro armor had a greater bend radius and did not crack, crimp, or break when bending past its capabilities. AIA would crack and crimp the cable when stressed past its bend radius.
