June is going to be very busy!

3:06PM June 05, 2018

 

 

 

 

As expected, June is turning out to be a very exciting and productive month for Velocity! On June 1, Kansas Electric Cooperative hosted a safety summit for the contractors who will be installing fiber optics on Butler's electric infrastructure.

Inventory shipments are starting to arrive, and the first strands of 144-count fiber are scheduled to be installed in early June. We deliberately chose this high-count fiber to accommodate future bandwidth needs and customer growth.

 

KEC Director of LCS&C Larry Detwiler, presented safety standards for fiber optics to BEC staff and contracting crews on June 1.

 

 

Tower Construction 

 

Our broadband project is hybrid in nature, as it is composed of wireless technologies and fiber optics. The technologies provide different strengths and complement one another when working in tandem making the duo the most logical fit for our needs. Fixed wireless is cost effective with a quicker installation process, while fiber provides greater bandwidth and increased reliability. Our electrical infrastructure will provide the frame work for our fiber backbone. A combination of 70 monopoles and towers will be installed for fixed wireless service throughout Butler Electric Cooperative's service territory.

 

A meeting of the minds took place in Kirk's office last week with Colteur and Wendy.  Joining them was Ricky (left) and Blaine (right) with Pulse.
