Jan 23, 2006 3:40 PM
The year 2006 is one of celebration for Opticomm because it has successfully arrived at its 20th year of business and is stronger than ever.
Founded in 1986 by present chairman and CEO, David Caidar, Opticomm was created with a vision to provide advanced, professional solutions for the optical transport of video, audio, and data signals.
The past two decades have brought many changes to the fiber optics world. Clients demanding optical networking in the 1980’s were primarily government and military. Opticomm first developed a solid reputation for providing rugged and dependable solutions while serving these markets.
Not only do the dielectric properties of fibers reduce electromagnetic-induced problems, but their small size also makes efficient use of crowded conduits. Moreover, fiber’s capability to provide high-bandwidth transport; its extended transmission range; and its impenetrable, lightweight, and secure composition have resulted in widespread acceptance for fiber-optic communication. This is evidenced by the estimated millions of miles of fiber-optic cable now in place.
During the 1990’s, the demand for dedicated fiber-optical networking increased at overwhelming rates. Opticomm’s operations expanded to developing and providing dependable solutions to additional vertical markets such as security/surveillance, broadcast/media, healthcare such as telemedicine, and traffic/transport such as rail and air.
Opticomm continues to take fiber-optic transmission to new levels with a devotion to technological advancements that surpass industry expectations. Opticomm presently offers more than 1,000 product variations and caters to clients such as NBC, Viacom, Time Warner Cable, Boeing, the US Army, Raytheon, and Walt Disney.
