LayerOne recently completed the installation a single mode fiber optic backbone at Ft. Lee Army Combined Arms Support Command in Ft Lee, VA.  This fiber optic backbone will allow the wireless provider to deliver broadband service to US Army personnel of up to 30 Mbps per device via WiFi.  This will allow the end users access to the providers IPTV services which feature a Cloud Based DVR and up to 20 Mbps upload speeds which are ideal for gaming and communicating with family and friends via video messaging.

The fiber infrastructure installed consisted of approximately 2 miles of single mode fiber optic cable routed through the bases duct bank and manhole system.  The fiber was run to 8 barracks buildings on the base where is was terminated, tested and commissioned with the service provider.  This fiber backbone will provide internet connectivity for over 1,500 US Army Soldiers on the base.
