Fiber Optic Bandwidth as Infrastructure
Just like electricity, water
and heat, fiber optic high bandwidth digital services are now
considered part of the business infrastructure.
Infrastructure rebuilding dominates the
news these days, as roads, bridges, water and power systems creak
and fail with age. Major investments by both the private and
public sector will be required for decades to modernize the national
infrastructure. But along with simply refurbishing the facilities
already in place and adding new capital, such as green energy,
there is another infrastructure component that needs to be put
in place. That's fiber optic broadband.
Fiber Optic Services Now in Demand by
Fiber optic transport for voice, data and video is no longer
an elite service for carrier backbones and specialized applications.
It should be treated as a basic necessity for the business of
the twenty first century. Wireline was adequate for the last
century. This century needs telecommunication pipes that are
transparent for the high bandwidth applications that will be
in demand by both businesses and consumers. A few Mbps won't
do it. What is considered fast today is going to seem as archaic
as dial-up Internet access in a decade or two. There's really
only one technology that has the potential to meet any need we
can throw at it. That's fiber optic.
But infrastructure? How can you justify
something l*ike high speed Internet service as infrastructure?
Easy. Business is more and more electronic in nature. It's also
more and more interconnected than ever before. Do you still send
contracts and drawings through the mail? How about purchase orders?
Do customers still write letters to your customer service department
starting with "Dear Sir or Madam"? I didn't think so.
Why Fiber is Necessary
It's happened gradually over the last 20 years or so. First came
email, then Websites, then online shopping, electronic data interchange,
CAD/CAM, and WAN networks as extensions of internal LAN computer
networks. Now there's increasing pressure to implement electronic
medical records and electronic every other record. That doesn't
mean scanning-in paper records, storing them on disk and then
printing them off when you need to review or mail a copy. It
means electronic from inception through the entire life cycle
of use and storage. With the right tools we may soon see the
long heralded arrival of the paperless office as well as the
paperless hospital, factory, warehouse, school and government
There is tremendous productivity to be
gained by making our business systems more electronic and more
interactive. But you can't do that with a creaky old wireline
telecom infrastructure. No more than a modern factory can run
on line shafts powered by water wheels or steam engines. Electricity
made the Twentieth Century. Fiber will make the Twenty First.
The Opportunity in Industrial Parks
and Office Buildings
There is a lot of room for government support in building out
a truly universal fiber optic communications infrastructure that
will reach out into rural areas and permeate every building the
way twisted pair copper wiring has become ubiquitous over the
last hundred years. But private industry can make a certain amount
of this happen on its own. The opportunity is obvious for greenfield
projects such as new industrial parks or office buildings. In
fact, it is almost irresponsible not to wire these projects with
fiber optic cabling throughout, along with high bandwidth connections
to the Internet and competitive telephone service carriers.
Savvy developers know this now and recognize
the competitive advantage of offering their clients fiber optic
broadband services as well as power, light, water, gas, sewer
and roads. Fiber broadband can even be a profit center if the
facilities manager contracts for the service and then resells
it by the Mbps or Gbps. The higher the bandwidth, the lower the
price per Mbps. Buying in bulk and then reselling at competitive
rates can easily net a handsome profit on monthly lease rates.
