Advantage's Fiber Team Designs Fiber Install Along Challenging Rail Route

We provided survey and fiber design services to a major carrier looking to improve backhaul connectivity through the Baltimore Metropolitan Area.

Designing a ROW installation can be complex because many other utilties are vying for the same space. The nature of a railway ROW adds another layer of safety and security concerns. Additionally, the railway operation has multiple departmental review process (Engineering, Real Estate, Safety, Operations, etc.) that requires a sophisticated approach to meet a requirement (defined and implied).

Safety is the highest priority for Advantage so our safety plan easily passed the railway operator's stringent assessment.  Moreover, each member of the survey crew passed their thorough security checks and required safety training.  Advantage's high-level project coordination, tracking and communication concurrent activities, allowed for the successful and timely completion of a long lead-time process.
