Extreme Endeavors recently took on a contract to string over a mile and a half of fiber through the mountains of West Virginia. After days of working in the blowing snow and cold, pulling cable through conduit, placing solar panels to power the media converters and placing connectors on the delicate fiber, the connection is operational and is providing high speed internet to a remote site.
In addition to the rugged terrain and its remote location, this particular project had a unique challenge: there was no energy source available to power the media converters and the internet connection. So, Extreme Endeavors went to work doing what we do best: we created an alternative plan. We designed the media converters and the internet connection to run on solar power, making the project not only feasible, but ecologically-friendly!
