Silver Creek Materials
Fort Worth, TX
December 6, 2020

The solution we implemented was an outdoor loose tube single-mode fiber installation with 6 strands at their Fort Worth TX location.  The fiber cable pull through underground conduit with several ninety degrees turns was very difficult but we got it pulled.  The next step was to strip back the cable and install the fanout kits and then fusion splice on LC pigtails for a pretty solid low loss solution. The project took two full days over a weekend.  Out customer, IT contact was very helpful and easy to work with which makes any project easier even when the physical part is difficult.  We ended up pulling over 2000 feet of underground cable between three buildings, fusion splicing on 24 ends, and certifying all 12 strands with our Owl Certification tool.

This customer was very please with the successful installation.  He told us his boss was very happy because the first vendor was unsuccessful and we made it seem so easy (haha).  The selection process was so long on our original bid that I thought we did not win this so when they called and selected us I was surprised.  They had several vendors come out and walk the site and discuss the solution.  They liked our approach and explanation of how we thought we would implement it along with our plans A, B, and C depending on how difficult the fiber pull was going to be. We are very pleased when a customer is happy with our work.

 

Western Flyer
Midlothian, TX
October 26, 2020

This customer thought they had damaged their fiber between their main building and their repair center down a hill on their property. When we inspected the fiber we noticed they had armored 6 strands multi-mode fiber optic cable running through the conduit. The cable did not appear damaged so we decided to shoot a Visual Fault Locators laser through the strands. The first strand was good and the second strand was very faint on the other end with laser coming through. Fortunately, they had a spare strand with an ST connector on it and we put the VFL on it and it tested good. We plugged both into their media convertor and the link lights came on. After calling the local contact he could see the network switch and said they are back up and running. This was just an issue of a bad strand or possibly connector but the customer did not want to resolve the issue but simply switch to a back up fiber and keep running. They where very happy with our service and gave us a five star review for making it to there location so quickly to get them back up and running.

Enginetech, Inc.
Carrollton, TX
October 26, 2020

We provided the customer with a quote to install approximately 12 wifi access points across their warehouse for use with their bar code scanners while picking orders.  The customer had several problems upon our network site survey and that was they had way too few access points to cover the number of square feet that they had and the second issue is some of the access points were not adopted to the same network as the others.  

Our solution was to pull Category 6 network cable and install new Ubiquiti access points in a diamond grid pattern across their warehouse in Carrollton, TX.  We ended up installing two Ubiquiti POE switches in the ceiling of the warehouse and ran each group of Ap's back to those switches.  Each of the POE switches was directly connected to the data room so if one went down half of the warehouse would still be functional which was better than what they had when we did our initial survey. 

Upon completion, our customer was very happy with the solution and the implementation.  This customer was a pleasure to work with and gave us a great review which we really appreciate.  You can see the review HERE.

We worked here for several days and got to eat at one of our favorite restaurants at the corner of Luna Rd. and Valwood Pkwy which is Tokyo Teriyaki.  It's always crowded but a table usually opens up by the time you place your order.

 

 

Eldorado Country Club Fiber Repair
McKinney, TX
October 21, 2020

When arriving on site we discovered that the customer had Singlemode loose tube 12 strand fiber optic cable between their Toptracer camera system and their clubhouse at the Eldorado County Club in McKinney TX. The customer was thinking they had multi-mode 6 strand tight buffer fiber so this caused a problem for us. We needed to come back the next day with a fan-out kit in order to terminate the loose tube fiber. The difference between loose tube fiber and tight buffer is that you can put a connector directly on the end of a tight buffer cable but on loose tube you need to slide the delicate fibers into a support tube or fan-out kit to give the fiber enough support to terminate a connector to. We installed fan out kits on both ends and certified the all the pairs as good. Customer was happy with our work.

Cliff Price Company
Dallas, TX
September 30, 2020

The solution we provided was comprised of twenty Bose high-end speakers powered by a Crown 1000 Watt amplifier. This overhead music solution will be integrated into there IP phone system so they can page across there speakers as well. There was four different showrooms that we installed speakers in. There was a volume control added to each room to raise or lower the volume of that room depending on the ambient noise. The best part about this project was meeting the employees of Cliff Price Company. Sometimes you just meet a great customer with great people and it just makes everything easier and more enjoyable. This installation went off without many obstacles and the customer seemed very pleased.

Oak Point Fiber Repair
Oak Point, TX
September 17, 2020

The solution we provided was repairing his fiber that he pulled between his barn and his house by fusion splicing new ends on. The issue was he purchased 200 ft LC LC fiber patch cords not meant to be pulled through conduit. These are manufactured to be used in a data closet connecting network switches and are made with very light material never intending for it to be used underground connecting buildings. The issue was all the pre-terminated ends would not make it through the small diameter of the pipe so he cut them all off. We fixed them all but he will have to make dure no one gets into that closet or they could easily damage them. Ideally, he would have called us first or used a solid piece of fiber made to pull underground that would not be so delicate or with ends alreay connected. We get many calls of people trying to pull fiber with perterminated ends.

Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council
Irving, TX
September 15, 2020

This customer had twelve strand multi-mode fiber that needed to be repaired between two floors of there building. The customer was nice enough to help us test on one floor whith us on the other. After we tested we concluded two things contributed to him calling us. The first was one strand did not pass and was corrected by fusion splicing on a new LC multi-mode pigtail the other issue and probably the larger issue was the fibers where not plugged in order on the back of the bulkhead so as he tried to utilize each pair of fiber in the bulkhead they never matched on the other end so he was getting no connection. We placed them in the correct order on both ends so then he plugged in his lc patch cord into port 1,2,3 etc on the front it matched the same port at the other data closet. No real challenges on this one and enjoyed meeting a new customer.

Bonded Lightning Protection Systems Ltd.
Argyle, TX
September 11, 2020

We went on-site to find out the customer needed four strands terminated with LC connectors. We fusion spliced both ends with pre-terminated LC multi-mode pigtails. Once we installed and certified those we moved his connection between his buildings to the newly terminated fiber and then tested his working strands which is he was wondering about. They ended up passing as well. We use a fiber certification tool by Owl Labs which allows us to save and email the documentation of the test. No real challenges for this fiber optic repair in Argyle, TX.

TRW
Lewisville, TX
September 10, 2020

We provided a total network infrastructure solution composed of Cat 6 data cabling, WiFi installation as well as twelve security cameras with an NVR that has 8 TB of storage at there new Lewisville, TX facility. The installation spanned two buildings with WiFi and cameras on the exterior of the building as well as the warehouse and office area. We finished the cabling and WiFi installation then waited for construction to catch up to us so we could install the cameras on the exterior of the building. After the project was complete we helped the customer download the Vivo Cloud app and helped him get logged in to view the cameras with his smartphone. The customer was pleased with the project and asked us if we were interested in building out a new tenant space they are adding on as well. We had two challenges on this project and the first was that we proposed a different brand camera that met their price point but was not NDAA compliant so we used another brand that met these criteria. The second challenge was the general contractor of building the facility who is not associated with my customer's company but was very difficult to work with. It took us a while to figure him out and overcome this obstacle and eventually won him over with think with kindness.

Gangnam Chicken
Denton, TX
September 2, 2020

Arriving on site we found that the previous tenant had removed the patch panel that all the data cabling was terminated on. We could still salvage this cabling and save the customer hundreds of dollars. We put male RJ45 ends on each cable and tested the cable to the outlet in the restaurant. They had approximately 12 Cat 5e network cables that needed to be repaired and tested. The customer also needed a small 16 port switch so we provided that as well. The last step we left to the customer to plug in a patch cord from the switch to there ISP modem once it was installed and they should be up and running. No real issues here just excitement about a new Korean chicken place near the square in Denton, TX.

Kimball Midwest
Arlington, TX
September 1, 2020

This customer wanted to utilize us to install a new IT network throughout there facility. We installed a new IDF in the back of the warehouse with fiber going to an intermediate IDF in the middle of the building. The previous tenant had fiber ran through the warehouse so we were able to move an abandoned fiber cable to the middle IDF and connect back to the main data room. We installed over a dozen WiFi access points through the building, about a dozen pack out station, built out two remote data racks, and the main data room. Assisted the customer by installing all the network switches, SFP's, Battery Backups, routers, and server. The IT dept was unable to fly due to company travel restrictions so we where able to assist in getting the entire facility up and running.

Friendly Chevrolet
Dallas, TX
August 26, 2020

We installed approximately 450' of 6 strands multi-mode armored cable between there main data room and a smaller data closet across the building. The materials for this project were Corning 1U rack mount fiber trays, Corning 6 strand bulkheads with LC duplex connectors. This Dallas fiber optic installation project was installed with very few issues to overcome. All the strands were certified with an Owl Fiber Optic Certification tool which can upload all the test results for the customer's records. The customer was so pleased they are having us come out on another project to install all new cabling in there repair shop.

University Park Fiber Optic Repair
University Park, TX
July 17, 2020

Once our tech got on site he discovered that the fiber was broken at the demarc box on the side of there house. The fiber was exposed coming out of the underground cable and into the demarc box. A landscaper snagged the exposed fiber and ripped it in two. Our tech fusion spliced both sides of the fiber with a piece of single mode fiber cable. After splicing the customer tested there internet connection and it was back working. Customer was very happy to be able to work from home again.

Friendly Chevrolet
Dallas, TX
June 25, 2020

We provided a fiber repair solution for an ST connector. When we arrived the customer decided to replace the ends on all 6 strands of multi-mode fiber because he was afraid the other strands had been damaged as well. Once the fiber was repaired over one hundred computers came back online. We were happy to help in this emergency network outage due to a fiber issue on a connector. The customer was very pleased and is having us give them a quote for some additional fiber cabling to a new location in the building.

Prairie House Restautant
Crossroads, TX
June 24, 2020

We helped the customer move off of there old 1 Meg internet connection to there new 20 Meg Fiber Connection. This involved tracing down there old AT&T modem and patch cord that fed their network switch and patching in the network switch to the new fiber modem. Once the new modem was patched in we had to reboot the PCs to pull a new IP address and test the internet speed. Once we checked all PCs and POS stations with internet access we were done. The only issue we had was AT&T messed up the dial tone portion of this order so we could not move there dial tone to the new circuit so this will have to be scheduled for a later date once AT&T gets there order corrected. Micki the General Manager was happy with our services.

Catch Co
Fort Worth, TX
April 29, 2020

This installation of data cabling in Fort Worth was so we could install wifi access points in the ceiling over there procurement area. Each time the customer pulls an item off the shelf they scan the item and it updates there database on inventory and order fulfillment. The scanners they utilize require wifi and the wifi over there area is specific to the Catch Co account. Our techs utilized the customers scissor lift to install the Cat6 data cabling as well as the customer provided Cisco Access Points approximately thirty feet overhead. The customer tested the access points and saw them online before we left.

Locus Robotics
Fort Worth, TX
April 29, 2020

We were asked to extend the demarc from the customer's demarc room to there data rack in the next room. Our tech utilized Cat 6 cable for the installation and ran it through the ceiling space. We utilized male RJ45's ends on both ends of the cable. After the Category 6 cable was tested we plugged both ends into the equipment and had the customer verify the connection was up and running. This is our second project for Locus Robotics in Fort Worth, TX. We are so happy for repeat business.

P&L Cast Stone, Inc.
Roanoke, TX
April 16, 2020

This customer had a very unique situation for us to solve. The owner of a very large business park wanted to have wifi in his RV on the back of his property. Since he travels the country most of the year when he is here to check on his business he wants to have internet access. Our original discussion was to install a Point to Point antenna solution but because of the topography and trees, he felt as though it would not be a reliable solution so he wanted a fiber connection. We decided upon installing a loose tube 6 strand multi-mode fiber cable approximately 1500 feet to his RV from his building. We utilized a fan-out kit on each end and terminated the SC connectors to the fiber inside the fan-out kit. The fan-out kit serves as a support structure for the bare fibers inside loose tub fiber cabling. Once we terminated and tested the fiber we plugged both ends into Gigabit media converters and then patched them into network switches on both ends. On one end was the router with internet connectivity and on the other end was a waterproof box with a media converter that was connected to a switch in the RV with a Ubiquiti Access Point. We created the SSID and password and our customer was very pleased with the connection speed which was over 130Mbs. We considered this a very unusual yet successful project.

Dalworth Restoration
Euless, TX
April 9, 2020

Our solution consisted of two NanoBeam AC Gen 2 Bridges and two Ubiquiti Ethernet Surge protectors. We mounted the Nano Beams on 1.5" pipe and fastened the surge protector with a self-tapping screw to the pipe through a previously drilled pilot hole. We used 14 gauge ground wire with a crimp-on connector to fasten to the ground portion of the surge protector and ran the wire to building ground. This solution was pretty simple to build in the shop and mount to the customers' building with metal straps. We had the customer install the management software on their pc since they would be managing this PTP application. We tested the connection which allowed us to see our IP security cameras in the remote building.

Golds Gym Richardson
Richardson, TX
April 7, 2020

Golds Gym contacted us to repair or replace their emergency phone in their pool area at there Richardson TX location. We went on-site to discover there old emergency pool phone was rusted and corroded. We took the old one out, tested the phone line, cleaned the wall and installed the new emergency pool phone. Once installed we programmed the auto-dial phone to call 911. We called 911 and tested with the operator to make sure the phone was working as expected. The new emergency pool phone model is a Viking E-30-PT-EWP. This particular model has enhanced weather protection.

Acme Truck Line, Inc.
Cedar Hill, TX
March 11, 2020

We went on-site to troubleshoot the network cabling at this Cedar Hill, TX facility. When we arrived we discovered several problems with why the TVs would not get a network connection. There was a few TVs that had there network connection plugged into the telephone jack so that was an easy solution. The second issue was the other two TVs were plugged into a switch with no uplink to the internet. We tested there Cat6 cable as good just to be sure the cabling would work. Then we plugged the connection into there main switch and the TVs pulled an ip address. We pulled up the weather channel on each tv to prove out our troubleshooting. Closed out the job with our customer and to please call us if they have any issues.

Identification Plates, Inc.
Mesquite, TX
March 7, 2020

We went on-site and determined this was basically two network cabling projects. The easier project was the Cat 6 cabling that would be running to the IDF cabinet at one end of the building. This IDF was connected back to the main data room with OM3 multimode fiber optic cabling. The more difficult part of the project was the cabling that ran to the main data room. There was an existing data rack that we had to work around and ultimately help the customer move out of the data room after moving all of his network gear into the new rack. We completely built out the new data rack with all of the customer's new and existing hardware. One of the challenges of this project was our lead tech getting vertigo from a previous ear infection that caused him to be out of work for over a month. We really missed him on this project and it caused us to ask for an additional week to complete the project. Our customers where very gracious and kind to our timeline and we completed the project on our second target date. On this project we installed over 150 Cat 6 cables, a 10G 6 strand Multimode fiber optic cable, one data rack and one network cablinet.

Smart City Aparment Locators
Dallas, TX
March 6, 2020

We provided a turn-key projector installation solution for Smart City Apartment Locators. We provided a universal Epson projector mount which is a really solid universal mount. We had to utilize a one-man bucket lift to mount the projector on the ceiling with a super strut. We spanned two joists with the strut and mounted the projector to the strut. The customer had us add there Apple TV to the top of the projector and plugged into HDMI port 1. We painted the strut black to match the ceiling. Upon testing the Apple TV with the customer we cleaned up the site and put the lift back out in the parking lot for pick up the next morning. The customer was very pleased with how the installation looked.
