20 Years and still going strong

On the 22nd of January 1991 Fibre Technologies started life in its founder’s garage, selling test equipment for SDH and low speed converters. Now, on the 22nd of January 2011, Fibre Technologies Limited “FTL” is still supplying low speed converters for legacy installations all the way to 10 Gig DWDM systems; a multimillion pound company supplying leading edge solutions to the private and public sector; companies, local government and the two largest Telecoms operators in the UK. FTL have continued year on year with measurable growth.

So what do the next 20 years look like? We have gone from low speed nx64kbps to 40 Gigabits today. 100 Gigabits has moved “out of the lab” and is being installed already. Will science and technology bring us Tachyons (FTL) faster than light? Who knows?

The next 12 months will see FTL launching our Access Control Division “FTL Secure Solutions” www.ftlsecuresolutions.co.uk bringing you access and building control systems, with a NACOS Gold installation team, 24x7x365 monitoring and 4 hour on-site response.

This year you will also find us re-launching “Fibre Distribution” www.fibredistribution.co.uk. The fibre optic market has matured significantly over the last 10 years and it is not the black art it used to be. Fibre Distribution has been set up to deliver what you want now, with stock and online ordering.

I would just like to say thank you to our current customers, and come and give us a try to new ones.
