Four county area for Northeast Oklahoma COOP

January 2014 -  Present

RUS Phase 1, 2 & 3 - Deployment along this network was a three-phase approach, connecting homes and business in a four-county area (Delaware, Craig, Mayes & Ottawa).  Available services included Inter connectivity, as well as high definition television and video services.  Additionally, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services were offered.  Trans-Tel performed the Aerial & Underground Backbone, The Middle Mile and the Last Mile Fiber project for the Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative.

 

Trans-Tel has successfully completed fifteen contracts totaling over $12 Million over the past 2 ½ years.  This large-scale project included the following details:

 

  • 1000+ Miles of Aerial Fiber installed.
  • 50+ Miles of Under Ground Conduit and Fiber installed.
  • Over 1,000+ Fiber Optic Closures installed and 1,000’s of fibers spliced.

 

This project as a whole consisted of installing aerial fiber using existing utility poles.  The installation links the towns of Vinita, Grove, and Ketchum, Oklahoma.  The new fiber backbone brought high speed Internet (up to 1 gigabit), television, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services to an estimated 15,000 potential residential and commercial customers.

 

Multiple Drop Contract – This was the Last Mile project to install drops in a four county region of NE Oklahoma.

 

Multiple Distribution Contracts – These were Middle Mile projects consisting of underground and aerial fiber using existing utility poles.  The new fiber distribution brought high speed Internet (up to 1 gigabit), television, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services to an estimated 10,000 potential residential and commercial customers.

 

Multiple Backbone/Mainline Contracts - Trans-Tel performed these Underground and Aerial Backbone Fiber projects for the Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative.  These projects consisted of several hundred miles of underground and aerial fiber using existing utility poles.  The new fiber backbone brought high speed Internet (up to 1 gigabit), television, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services to an estimated 10,000 potential residential and commercial customers.

 

These projects presented a number of water crossing, land clearing and restoration, and many inaccessible areas where each pole had to be spiked (manually climbed).

2/1/13 – 10/1/14

Description of Work Performed: The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) is a fiber backbone network with distribution to Government agencies.  Trans-Tel was awarded the contract for the network construction which included all aerial installation work.

 

The aerial work consisted of the installation of 4CT through 288CT fiber on existing utility poles.  All fiber was ADSS and installed using tangents and deadends with the exception of the 4CT lateral drops which were installed with J-hooks.  TTC crews handled the entire installation which consisted of backbone, distribution to splice points and lateral drops to the existing Government agencies.

 

The combined projects resulted in the installation of over 141 miles of aerial fiber.  The backbone runs averaged 25,000’ between splices and the distribution and drops ranged between 1,000’ and 10,000’.  All work was completed within the contract timeframes and all change orders were requested changes by the Owner.  All of the work was completed in the existing streets and roadways which required coordination of traffic control and notification to local authorities.  All work was completed without any traffic incidents and with minimal disruption to the normal traffic flow.

 

The Trans-Tel team worked closely with the Owner to finalize the construction drawings and work through any changes encountered in the field.  In addition to supporting the engineering team, TTC staff re-worked the fiber deployment strategy to minimize wasted fiber and time while lowering the required splice locations.  Working closely with the viNGN project team kept the project on schedule and under budget.

 

During the aerial installation work there was another 150 miles of underground fiber deployment also handled by the Trans-Tel teams.  Being able to coordinate the underground and aerial construction allowed the Trans-Tel team to avoid unnecessary delays and missed scope items.  In addition to the fiber deployment, Trans-Tel was awarded the contract for all splicing work associated with the network.  This consisted of over 3,000 splices and testing to include each of the 318 Government agencies that connected to the network during the initial construction phase.

 

Due to the remote nature of performing construction on an island, careful consideration was given to project staffing, equipment planning and general logistics.  The team had to anticipate upcoming activities to compensate for the average 3-week lead time for shipping of equipment of materials for the projects.  In the end, the projects were completed with limited impact by these lead times.
