NATOA Journal Publishes CTC Article: Fiber vs. Copper

NATOA Journal, the magazine of the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisers, published an insightful article by CTC Technology & Energy engineers Matthew DeHaven and Priya Wasnikar. “What’s the Fuss About Fiber? A Comparative Analysis of Fiber and Copper Physical Media,” which covers issues such as cost, security, and maintenance, offers a technical analysis of the superiority of fiber optics as compared to the incumbent cable and phone companies’ copper networks.

Published in the Journal’s Spring 2009 issue, the article is especially timely, coming at a time when the federal government is preparing to begin distributing $7.2 billion in broadband project grant funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

Both Matt and Priya specialize in feasibility analysis, strategic planning, engineering design, and cost estimation of state-of-the-art broadband wireless and fiber networks.
