The Problem: Traditional Fiber Optic Installation Fails To Connect Communities
Broadband access is necessary for municipalities, schools, businesses and families. Until now, there were only three ways to install fiber: underground, underwater or strung on utility poles.
The Solution: TRAXyL Lays Fiber Optics On Roads
When TRAXyL founder Daniel Turner’s family was unable to access high speed broadband for their rural home, he decided there had to be a way to make fiber optics available everywhere. He realized roads, highways and bridges connect the U.S. from coast to coast, cities and rural spaces.
Laying traditional cable today requires cutting in the ground, blasting through hills and mountains or laying pipe under rivers and lakes. TRAXyL patented process allows fiber to be placed directly onto paved surfaces and sealed in protective coatings.
Tried & Tested By The U.S. Military
TRAXyL’s first major customer was the U.S. Army. It was installed on international military bases where heavy equipment, including B52 bombers, intentional ran over the fiber lines which withstood every test.
