Maximizing Infrastructure – Is There Gold In Your Walls?

FiberPlex Technologies, Kyle Rosenbloom  In retrospect it’s wonderful that so many buildings had the foresight to install fiber optics in their walls. The copper lines originally used are now past their breaking point, having exceeded their limitations. Copper has become woefully inefficient when faced with the current need for lightning-fast data transmission and cyber security. […]
