- Rural Connect
The appeal of fiber for connectivity is well known. The challenge in rural America, in more sparsely populated areas, is figuring out how to make the business case and ensure sustainability. That’s where you need expertise and partners.
The experts at NRTC’s subsidiary Pulse Broadband know how to work with rural utilities, both electric and telecom providers. While others begin projects by focusing on the last mile, we design networks with your operation in mind. By providing a secure system for all your mission-critical business functions, your fiber network will do more than just deliver broadband to your customers. It will transform your business and your community.
We can design, engineer and manage backbone network construction to feed wireless, telecom and smart grid networks.
Connect your offices, substations, key commercial customers and critical infrastructure end points with high-speed, redundant, private and secure communications to insure instant two-way data, voice and video communications.
While many fiber projects start with internal connectivity needs (whether smart grid for electrics or network connectivity for telecoms), it’s likely that you’ll look for ways to monetize that investment and leverage that infrastructure.
We can plan, design, and manage the build of a fiber or hybrid fiber/wireless broadband network to residences and businesses that require high-speed Internet, communications, and entertainment solutions – not only enable true broadband Internet access but enable services such as rural telemedicine, smart ag, and remote learning.
The first question you’ll ask is whether a fiber project makes sense for you, financially and otherwise. You’ll need a model based on real-world experience. You must consider population density and several other factors.
Pulse Broadband has fine-tuned its feasibility studies and financial models through years of experience. With experience gained from more than 5,000 miles of fiber deployment and successful rural fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) projects, we understand the most critical parts of your network.
Our models keep members in mind. We strive to give you the most accurate guideposts for your project planning. Feasibility studies include:
In most cases, we can deliver a full customized report, including your ROI model and analysis in 30-45 days. Our team of experts then walks you through the findings to discuss the pros, cons and viability of a potential FTTH project.
To request a feasibility study, contact: Pulse Chief Marketing Officer Rudy Tober at 248-535-6335 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you’ve analyzed the feasibility study and decided to proceed with a fiber build, you can count on us to be there from beginning to end – the design phase through construction and beyond, with managed network services and end-user broadband, voice and video delivery.
We know all the ins and outs of building a fiber network, and we have formed partnerships to assure the right decisions at every step of the process.
The acquisition will enable NRTC to accelerate its efforts to provide a full range of communications services for its members.Read More in News...
