Leasing

Dark fiber leasing allows members a cost savings option in the fiber optic infrastructure. MdBC offers limited dark fiber leasing for up to 20 years on our statewide network for members who choose to maintain and operate equipment required to “light” the fiber. Members must meet certain standard requirements.

Fiber
Splicing

MdBC fiber technicians are certified and outfitted with cutting edge fusion splicing technology. A fusion splice permanently welds two fibers together using an electronic arc or heat. This is the preferred method of splicing as it is the strongest and creates the least amount of loss.

MdBC offers Project Management for construction, fiber optic splicing, and network expansion. We pro-actively engage in all steps of the process from project initiation through closeout. Our team has a laser focus on achieving agreed upon goals within budget, time, and quality standards.
