FiberPlex Announces Fiber Optic Maintenance Agreement Affecting Government Agencies During Sequestration

As new IT acquisitions come under the knife of sequestration, FiberPlex Technologies announced today an affordable maintenance agreement to extend the life of some $200 million worth of fiber optic products currently in service and purchased by government agencies over the past 25 years.

The Extended Service Agreement (ESA) is available for fiber optic products purchased under the FiberPlex name regardless of purchase date. “We anticipate that this ESA program will help dozens of agencies set a fixed maintenance cost on their FiberPlex optic systems, and in many cases, provide some budget relief in the wake of sequestration,” said FiberPlex’ Director of Government Relations Mitch Abel.

Affected are agencies within the Department of Defense, State Department, CIA, FBI, and others that have FiberPlex fiber optic systems in use today, many of those systems acquired as part of a government-wide mandate to secure its communications. FiberPlex fiber optic technology has been widely procured by the U.S. government over the past decade because of fiber optics’ large bandwidth capacity, economies of scale, and affordable implementation.

Now, FiberPlex products beyond the standard one-year parts and workmanship warranty offered by the company can be re-certified and qualified for an extended one- or three-year coverage period under an extended service agreement. The ESA encompasses the majority of FiberPlex products, including its serial data, IT infrastructure, WDM and LightViper products.

FiberPlex’ extended warranty program will help agencies leverage their investment in these fiber optic products and provide predictable fixed maintenance costs going forward, according to Abel.

In addition, FiberPlex is offering agencies new fiber optic technology to affordably increase the capacity of existing fiber optic infrastructure. Its Active WDM multiplexer bumps capacity up to OC-48 data transfer rates for up to 16 strands of fiber optics, effectively reducing acquisition costs to pennies on the dollar compared to the cost of installing new fiber optic runs with associated labor and conduit expenses to yield the same capacity gain.

“Active WDM gives these agencies an affordable option to add the kind of capacity they need now, without having to wait until they have the budget to pay for totally new optic installations,” commented Abel.

FiberPlex makes a full range of fiber optic products for government agencies as well as for houses of worship, corporate facilities, broadcast applications, k-12 and higher education.
