New Idea for Cable

November 30, 2017

Liberty High School in Bealeton, Va., recently began testing a new system to provide broadband service to its media box, concession stand, and ticket booth at its athletic fields by laying fiber strands covered in protective resin on the pavement.

According to the Fauquier Times, the school hired the TRAXyL company to provide the service, which convinced them it would take less money and time to lay the wires on the ground compared to digging a trench. The project is expected to cost $7,061, money that will come from the Fauquier County Economic Development Authority, and the installation will take up to two weeks. 

The fiber strands will connect the school network to the buildings on the athletic fields. According to Stephen Carter, TRAXyL's chief operating officer and co-founder, the project will use both existing cable and new cable.

“We won’t be replacing what’s there but using FiberTRAX where it makes sense,” he said.
