FIBER REGENERATION HUTS
The Module X Solutions team co-designs and manufactures very unique and highly specialized modular colocation facilities for fiber optic cable signal regeneration. These site installations are located along a nationwide fiber network rings and continue to expand to urban markets to reduce latency issues by deliverying data content faster as they are deployed closer to the sources(s) of origin. In some cases, these concrete colocation huts are strategically positioned every 60 miles along railroad right of ways where buried fiber optic cable is transferred above ground to connect with transceiver devices to boost and enhance data signals. Connection points called ‘handholes’ placed every 3,000 to 5,000 feet allow local access to the fiber backbone, delivering a turnkey solution with coast to coast communication infrastructure enabling end points, such as subsea cable landing ports, wireless towers, and data centers to physically connect. Module X Solutions currently provides design, engineering, manufacturing, and site services to support the nationwide fiber network infrastructure build out.
The original three module 36’ x 40’ designed structure was assembled in its field configuration at the MXS facility to enable complete interior finishing, AC/DC electrical installation, thermal management, completed structured fiber optic cabling, and security/access control systems integration. The next generation two module design collocation facility will help streamline our clients end users and network system goals.
The regeneration colocation facilities allow various content providers the ability to connect to the fiber optic network backbone thus fueling the need for additional modular infrastructure solutions that will ultimately deliver enhanced data/content to commercial and residential end users. Fiber clients have the flexibility to manage their own modular data center, partner with a fiber network provider to manage and distribute their content via the fiber network provider’s network infrastructure, or partner with a modular data center solutions design/build services company that can offer a range of packages such as data center management and content distribution services.
Depending on the installation location and the intended term of service, regeneration facilities can be made of either metal and/or concrete construction, with a vast majority falling into the concrete solution category. These integrated solutions are designed and manufactured to the customer’s specifications or through a standard model design where every aspect of the design/engineering/production process is handled at MXS’ Shreveport, Louisiana manufacturing facility and transported to the site or port for international shipments.
Benefits of modular fiber hut solution(s) over traditional bricks and mortar buildings:
- Cost savings advantage with modular design, manufacturing, and integration as economies of scale are realized
- Controlled environment of a factory setting allows our modular solutions to be manufactured efficiently
- Accelerated deployment speed results in faster return on investment for our clients
- Scalability for future growth and expansion
- Regimented quality assurance program conducted in facility setting vs. in field stick built quality control
- Delivery schedule accuracy optimization vs. potential in field builds that can be jeopardized by weather delays associated with field construction
- Multi-module connection and integration at factory gives a true plug and play solution that is factory acceptance tested and fully operational before shipment and reduces the chance of extra site/field costs.
These benefits are realized because of our proven track record of engineering innovation, maintaining cost targets and budgets, exceeding schedule requirements and delivering best in class quality to our clientele.
MXS can design, engineer and manufacture single or multi-module solutions in various sizes for any fiber network project. Additionally, we can provide resources to support network creation, development, and construction in addition to our core competency of modular building manufacturing. Helping our clients succeed with their projects is our main objective and we do this through pre and post-sale engineering/technical support, consulting, and customer service to ensure a successful partnership and project completion.
Would you rather have your car built in your driveway or in a controlled factory setting? Our engineering capabilties in conjunction with our experienced and talented technicians, allow us to set the bar in the industry for turnkey plug and play integrated solutions.
These plug and play solutions allow our customers to streamline and control their site installation costs and project schedule. Our facility testing and commissioning services in conjunction with our client attended factory accceptance testing (FAT) ensures efficient and reliable functionality when these modular buildings reach their final destination.
Testing & Commissioning
The MXS team performs multi point inspection processes and protocols both internally and through third party inspections. We have worked with our clients and developed commissiong procedures and initiated mock commissioning tests. Established connections thousands of miles away in Network Operations Centers (NOC’s) have been simulated and our plug and play solutions have passed all situational testing protocols just like if the buildings were located on-site.
