Ruggedised fibre cables for harsh environments

Universal Networks are fibre deployable experts specialising in the design and delivery of custom made, rugged fibre solutions. With over 25 years of experience, we have worked with a variety of companies operating in some of the most challenging and harsh environments, including the MOD and affiliated companies to the defence industry.

DEPENDABLE FIBRE SOLUTIONS FOR MILITARY, DEFENCE AND OTHER HARSH ENVIRONMENTS

Fibre optic cables are the only option if you want to move high data rates over long distances. They are incredibly well suited to temporary connections as they are compact and far lighter than their copper counterparts, making them easy to carry, deploy and reuse.

Fibre optics offer many security benefits as they do not radiate any signal and are very difficult to tap into. They are also immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI), providing a very reliable medium for transporting your data. The majority of our solutions use fibre to transport data between devices, from a few hundred metres to tens of kilometres. Fibre readily supports bandwidths up to 10Gbp/s over long distances.

Here at Universal Networks we understand the unique challenges and performance expectations of the defence sector, where requirements commonly centre around the need for high performance, easily maintainable, field deployable solutions that are built to withstand the most punishing conditions. With 30 years of experience and technical know-how, we specialising in the delivery of rugged, agile, deployable fibre solutions for harsh environment applications to meet these demands with precision and expertise. Our Joscar, Cyber Essentials and ISO9001 accreditations underpin our focus on providing reliable and responsive support for communications projects all over the world.

In addition, we also have experience of installing permanent cabling systems on military and defence bases and test areas.
