Western Canadian Industries That Depend on Fiber Optic Infrastructure 

Fiber optics is a significant advancement in data connectivity. Fiber optics have the ability to transmit substantial volumes of voice, video, and data, while increasing speed, reliability, and scalability.

Many companies, as well as government organizations in Western Canada, are making the switch to fiber optic-based cabling network infrastructure. Given how important voice, video, and data are to organizations, particularly as they expand, this change is not surprising. The key to any major upgrade in technology is selecting a partner that has the knowledge, experience, and resources to complete the job on time and within budget.

Tridon Communications is one of Western Canada’s most respected Telecommunications Systems Integrators. Tridon has extensive experience with wireless and wired technologies including fiber optic cabling layout design, installation, and maintenance. . With over 40 years of experience servicing industrial, government, and IT organizations with comprehensive infrastructure engineering, design, installation, and maintenance services, Tridon is the go-to contractor in the region.

Here are a few of the industries Tridon is helping to upgrade and maintain their critical data infrastructure.

Oil & Gas

Given the volatile nature of the oil and gas industry, it makes sense that the digital infrastructure supporting these operations should be as reliable as possible. Fiber optic cables offer greater signal durability and take up less space compared to traditional network cabling options all while providing more reliable and faster service, making it easier to communicate on-site and from the site to outside.


Like the oil and gas industry, mining operations can benefit from fiber-optic cables’ improved capacity and performance. In an environment that is constantly being reshaped and broken up as part of daily operations, having network cables strong enough to stand up to this is a necessity to avoid outages.

The superior bandwidth provided by these cables also means better real-time voice capabilities, efficient real-time video feeds and the ability to send data at faster speeds, plus. Fiber can even facilitate better connection and communication while deep underground with less lag and fewer interruptions in service.

Utilities-Service outages can be very destructive and devastating. When critical network connections are down, this means potentially losing access to water or power for numerous homes and institutions across the region.

Fiber optics will fulfill the need for instant voice and video communications, as well as exceptionally fast data transfer speeds, ensuring all relevant parties can stay in contact. It also provides reliable connection even during natural disasters when delivering reliable utility services is most crucial. You will be able to ride out the storm without problems.


Government organizations depend on their IT networks for voice, video, and data applications. Having a fiber-optic network infrastructure is critical for reliability, scalability, and fast data speeds.

Fiber optics are the future of information and communication technology because they provide high-speed access and are more reliable than traditional copper cables. First responders Police, Fire, EMS, and other public services like Education, and Public Works benefit from quick access to data and cost savings from using fiber optics.

Cellular Providers and 5G Networks

As the world makes the leap to 5G wireless networks, know that it will be fiber optics serving as the backbone for voice, video, and data transmission.

Fiber optic cables in a 5G network transmit data at speeds up to 100 gigabits per second, which is 10 times faster than 4G LTE. This means that you have enough bandwidth for voice, video, and data applications simultaneously. In addition, fiber optic cables are more reliable and scalable than legacy cable technologies.

5G is estimated to have over 2 billion users across the world. Some even predicted that 5G networks can do the job of traditional ISP’s, having the infrastructure to run this technology at its best will be crucial in only a few years.

Like the rest of the world, Western Canadian business and government organizations could dramatically improve their digital infrastructure by relying on fiber optic infrastructure. Telecommunications systems integrators like Tridon are prepared to assist in making the switch to a safer, sturdier, and faster fiber-optic network.
