Discover a revolution in infrastructure technology as we chat with Daniel Turner, the trailblazing CEO of TRAXyl, who unveils a new era of fiber optic installation. Imagine a world where high-speed internet reaches every corner with unprecedented speed and durability. That’s the promise of TRAXyL’s Trackster, and in our conversation, we unravel how this machine is laying down over a mile of fiber. Turner takes us through the ins and outs of their breakthrough method, so swift and sturdy that it seems to defy the very elements that challenge traditional cable laying.
When extreme weather and urban challenges conspire to disrupt our quest for seamless connectivity, Traxel’s innovative nanofiber cables stand tall. We dissect the resilience of these installations, discussing how they endure the scorching heat that warps roads and the relentless scrape of snow plows in wintry states. As we navigate the company’s expansion through smart partnerships, akin to the printer and ink model, the episode delves into the practicality of quick repairs and the efficiency of data rerouting that this novel technology affords.
Wrapping up, Turner and I explore the economic landscape of this cutting-edge fiber installation technique. The discussion meanders through the unique challenges of deploying cables on a variety of surfaces, from seasoned concrete at an Air Force base to the bustling ports frequented by heavy loaders. We reflect on the resilience of the resin-based installation, the cost savings compared to traditional methods, and the company’s impressive track record of 30,000 feet of cable laid to date. Prepare to be enlightened by this deep dive into a technology that’s not only propelling us toward a more connected future but also doing so with an eye for economy and efficiency.
