Case Studies

Air-Blown Fiber Pathway and Installation

Air-blown fiber uses a patented blowing method, available in a variety of fiber compact bundle configurations. It is blown through a tube and the air source used is either compressed air or nitrogen at speeds of 100 to 150 per minute to anywhere in the LAN you want it to go.  Some of the many benefits of an air-blown fiber solution includes the fact it can scale your network immediately, meet your bandwidth requirements in minutes as well as save significant labor and project costs.

outside plant services

Our crews are outfitted to perform the work you need completed.

Communication Innovators started our business in structured cabling over 25 years ago and as customer needs diversified, 

we began branching out to provide additional outside plant utility services.

Directional Boring

Directional boring is mainly used for making crosses under rivers, roads and existing structures with the purpose of installing pipes and conduits.  This type of process is used instead of other techniques to provide less traffic disruption, lower cost, shorter completion times, directional capabilities and environmental safety.
