TeraSpan MIcrotrenching Solutions

As demand for reliable, always-on, high-speed broadband services continues to rapidly grow, fiber optic networks have become the solution of choice for governments, businesses and home owners. With Fiber To The Business (FTTB) and Fiber To The Home (FTTH) reaching beyond new developments to established communities, and new entrants such as power companies, municipalities and wireless carriers building networks, service providers are challenged to extend fiber networks directly to the premise at the lowest cost possible.  Shallow fiber deployment or “micro trenching” has emerged as a leading option to deliver fiber in established areas, often at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.

With partners in over 30 countries around the world, Teraspan Networks provides “last mile” micro-trenched fiber optic access network solutions connecting buildings or homes to backbone access points.  Unlike traditional deployment methods, TeraSpan’s patent pending Vertical Inlaid Fiber (VIF) micro-trenched fiber optic solutions are non-intrusive and environmentally friendly - ideal for metropolitan, suburban and urban areas.  
Our customers, including  Alcatel-Lucent, Shaw Cable Systems, the City of Winnipeg and Relacom Systems, have found that Vertical Inlaid Fiber provides as much as 50% in cost savings and time to market compared with traditional trenching or boring methods.  For carriers, governments and businesses deploying high bandwidth services in difficult urban or metropolitan areas, Vertical Inlaid Fiber is the solution.

TeraSpan is registered with the CRTC as a Non-Dominant Carrier and is headquartered in British Columbia, Canada.
