Point 2 Point Communications’ nanoFIBER™ is honored with 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Platinum Homeland Security recognized for their groundbreaking Airport/Aviation Security Infrastructure Program for armored fiber optic cabling solutions.
New York, Dec. 7, 2020 — nanoFIBER™ today announced it is the recipient of a coveted 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Platinum Award from American Security Today for its Airport/Aviation Security Infrastructure solutions for armored fiber optics solutions. The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards, now in its fifth year, is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, highlighting the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today. “2020 has been a very challenging year for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic however, the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program was again a huge success and many new categories were added including a section for COVID-19 Detection and Innovation,” said Michael Madsen, co-founder, and publisher of American Security Today.
The program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets. 90% of ‘ASTORS’ Award Winners return to compete in the Annual ‘ASTORS‘ Homeland Security Awards Program, and 100% of ‘ASTORS’ Sponsors have returned year to year to reap the benefits of their participation in the industry’s largest and most comprehensive Annual Awards Program. As the nation continues to respond to escalating threats from home and abroad, the innovative solutions being implemented to meet those threats have led to tremendous growth in the field of Homeland Security.
“Today, the United States is increasingly focusing on protecting public spaces, as well as IT/cybersecurity networks and they are calling on innovative companies like P2P Communications to help them do so,” according to Tammy Waitt, co-founder and editorial director of American Security Today. “‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, the overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” concluded Waitt.
Generally speaking, the airport’s objective in expansion or reclamation is to utilize the latest technologies from security, data centers, DAS, Wi-Fi, digital signage as well as some special amenities such as high tech chairs in the passenger waiting for areas and designed for comfort. Other key features are the multiple UBS ports and standard power outlets for charging phones, tablets, and laptops. The airport objective is to source a fiber optic solution that will meet the needs of the smallest outer diameter and can meet all required specifications and external conditions from Riser, Plenum, Indoor/Outdoor, LSZH, Direct Burial, Industrial and Harsh Environments as well as added water block for underground conduits when necessary.
nanoFIBER™ optic armored cables have the ability to provide the airport with the smallest outer diameter (OD) secure cable that is crush resistant, tamper-resistant, and safest for humans in a fire scenario at the airport with the EU CPR UL CERTIFIED LSHZ outer jacket. Point 2 Point’s nanoFIBER™ is 65% smaller in size and 75% lighter than standard Aluminum Interlock Armor (AIA) and easy to install as a one-man project. A standard 1000-foot 12 strand spool of AIA can weigh 395lbs and has a 13.9mm outer diameter versus nanoFIBER™ that weighs 99lbs and has only a 5.5mm outer diameter. The added toughness and strength of the nanoFIBER™makes pushing and or pulling the nanoFIBER™ through conduits, aerials, or even under the ground a time-saving and user-friendly solution.
nanoFIBER™ is designed to protect the Corning ClearCurve™ & InfiniCore™ Glass as a standard with universal usage. The smallest armor OD and very high flexibility allow for easy installations into tight paths and bends. The fibers include OS2, OM1, OM3, OM4, and OM5 from 1 to 144 Strands (250u/900u/Ribbon) to meet all needs and airport projects. The Multi-strand pre-termination is available with MTP/MPO, LC, SC, ST, MU, etc. to meet all marketable needs. The Jackets are available for Riser, Plenum, Indoor/Outdoor, LSZH EU CPR Certified B2 level, Direct Burial, Industrial, as well as Harsh Environments
“We are honored to be recognized for our armored fiber optic cabling capabilities in American Security Today’s distinguished 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program for advances in our building management systems (BMS) cabling infrastructure platform for all building structures. “This award is a clear indication that nanoFIBER™ helps enable security leaders to protect the fiber from harsh conditions and difficult to cut,” said Roman Krawczyk, CEO and Chief Engineer. “As a trusted partner to government, enterprise-class, commercial, Pro A/V, DAS, broadband, data center, and security organizations across the globe, nanoFIBER™ is dedicated to Airport Security systems who cannot afford downtime due to faulty cables, vermin attacks, crimping, and breaking, etc. The opportunities to use nanoFIBER™ in projects are almost infinite. The cost/value proposition is enormous and adds features and benefits to all projects for the end-user.

The armored fiber cables can be housed as a single strand for airport digital signage to building management systems (BMS) as well as multiple strands of up to 144 strands or more to support all aviation security needs and projects. The nanoFIBER™ is easy to splice and faster to terminate for custom solutions versus standard AIA. Since the OD is the same as non-armored fiber cable sizes, nanoFIBER™ is a perfect replacement for all the fiber needs.
