Lansing, MI - ACD is excited to announce that we are expanding our fiber-optic footprint this fall in Petoskey, MI. Construction is expected to commence early Fall 2020. Kevin Schoen, CEO, states “We operate a state-wide enterprise-grade network offering gigabit+ services and wide-area networking. We look forward to bringing Petoskey's business’s access to Gigabit Fiber, Local Phone, and our hosted PBX services.” The route for the new fiber is depicted on the map below.

How Fiber-Optics Work?

It's Fast, Really Fast - Limited by the electronics we connect to the ends. The current record is 15.5 Terabits per second over a distance of 7,000 km. That’s the equivalent of 10.3 million 1.5Mbps T1 Connections.

It's Secure - It’s far easier to tap into copper or electrical wiring than it is to tap into fiber-optic wiring in a surreptitious manner. Also, the financial investment of tapping into fiber is far greater than tapping into copper.

It Isn’t Affected by Weather - Because fiber cables carry light instead of electricity it's not disturbed by changes in temperature, rain, or virtually any other environmental condition. That being said, it is not immune to everything like a tree limb, a wayward automobile, or a backhoe.

Active Ethernet has a direct point-to-point connection that is more cost-effective and supports business, residential, and mobile backhaul applications. It also provides dedicated 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps Internet symmetrical connections; bringing greater control, visibility, and service assurance.

ACD continues to be the go-to company in assisting numerous Michigan small towns for fiber-optic service. We are also expanding our fiber network in other Northern Michigan towns like Kalkaska, Mackinaw City, and Traverse City. ACD already operates networks in Gladwin, Gaylord, Cheboygan, Alpena, and Ludington.
