TiniFiber - An Armored Fiber Innovation

  1. The Only Fiber Optic Cable You Will Ever Need! Micro Armor Fiber™
  2. TiniFiber® Wins Consecutive “Govies” Government Security Platinum Level Awards in 2015 & 2016 at the ISC West Security Show in the Fiber Optics Category. Award Winning Fiber Optic Cable
  3. Nov 10, 2015 TiniFiber® by CertiCable was awarded the U.S. Patent for the Armored Flexible Fiber Optic Cable - 11/11/2015 Farmingdale, NY – Certicable Inc., the parent company to TiniFiber® has announced today that the U.S. Patent office has awarded U.S. Patent No. 9,182,562 B2 for the stainless steel micro armor fiber developed to protect the fragile fiber glass within the cable jacket. “Our Micro Armor Fiber™ stainless steel concept was conceived back in 2011 and we are pleased that the U.S. Patent Office recognizes the invention as ground breaking and will change the armored fiber optic industry,” stated Christian A. Peterson III, Chief Executive Officer for TiniFiber’s product line. Peterson continues, “We’re focused on providing best-in-class armored fiber optic solutions to meet the needs of large enterprises, IT, communications, telco, CATV, Pro AV, CEDIA, security and government agencies that are seeking a quality fiber optic cable for both indoor and outdoor usage.” Barry Skolnick, co-inventor and Chief Operating Officer, states “The TiniFiber’s revolutionary development of Micro Armor Fiber™ addresses both the armor and non-armor cable markets in a single solution.” Roman Krawczyk, co-inventor and Chief Engineer further elaborates that, “This is accomplished by the proprietary “Micro Armor Machinery” designed to tightly wind the stainless steel tubular coil around the fiber strands. This in turn provides the smallest Outer Diameter (OD) of any armored fiber cable on the market.” The solution offers considerable advantages over the conventional Aluminum Interlocking Armor (AIA) widely used today. TiniFiber® Micro Armor Fiber™ cable does not increase the size of the outer diameter of the basic fiber optic cable. U.S. Patent and Press Release

  10. Aluminum Interlocking Armor (AIA) Aluminum Interlocking Armored (AIA) cables are standard fiber optic cables inside a spirally wrapped interlocking armor for enhanced crush resistance and ruggedness. AIA cable is bulky and has been known to crush the fiber when the aluminum casing is compromised. It is difficult to work with, expensive to ship, requires additional crew labor, and is limited in its applications due to its size and lack of flexibility.

  18. 10 Reasons Why Fiber Optic Versus Copper Cable Fiber optic cables are the most popular mediums for both new cabling installations and upgrades including: backbone, horizontal, and even desktop/home applications. Fiber offers a number of advantages over copper. 1. Less Power: Fiber optic cabling uses less power and provides less signal degradation than copper cables. 2. Greater Bandwidth: Fiber provides more bandwidth than copper and has standardized performance up to 100 Gbps and beyond. 3. Speed & Distance:. Fiber distances depend on the style of cable, wavelength and network. Distances can range from 550 meters (984.2 ft.) for 10-Gbps multimode and up to 40 kilometers (24.8 mi.) for single- mode fiber cable. 4. Security: Your data is safe with fiber cable. It doesn’t radiate signals and is extremely difficult to tap. 5. Centralize: Fiber networks also enable you to put all your electronics and hardware in one central location, instead of having wiring closets with equipment throughout the building. 6. Reliability: Fiber provides extremely reliable data transmission. It’s completely immune to many environmental factors that affect copper cable. 7. Design: Fiber is lightweight, thin, and more durable when armored, than copper cable. 8. Migration: The proliferation and lower costs of media converters are making copper to fiber migration much easier 9. Field Termination: Auto-aligning pins ensure accuracy for field termination. The use of pig-tails and pre- terminated cable make field connections quick and easy. 10. Cost: Fiber typically costs less to maintain, has less downtime, and requires less networking hardware.

  20. NFL Superbowl Outdoor Fiber Every year, the Super Bowl outdoor events attract hundreds of thousands of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. The NFL needed a truly reliable crush-proof, flexible, high quality cable with the smallest OD fiber armor. They turned to TiniFiber for the solution. During the 2014 New York City events in Times Square on “Super Bowl Blvd” there were thousands of vehicles and heavy foot traffic running over the Micro Armor cables without incident. The NFL again utilized TiniFiber for the 2015 Santa Ana Super Bowl (Feb 2016) events and will being using I again for the 2017 Event.
  21. Winthrop Hospital Research Building “Winthrop Hospital has undergone an expansion of our Research Building that uses high- tech training for future technologies in the hospital.” “A high end, secured fiber optic network backbone had to be implemented. We found that TiniFiber Micro Armor Fiber optic cable was the perfect solution. The highly flexible, small OD size saved space in both the pathways and the racks and made for a smooth installation and within budget. The stainless steel armor provided the extra strength and security over regular fiber cables. Plenum rated and the best Corning glass made it a no brainer.” - Chris Iorio, Chief Information Officer Winthrop Hospital, Mineola, NY
  22. Smart Choice Press Release Smart Choice Communications Works with TiniFiber® to Provide Superior Voice and Data Services to Clients Micro Armor Fiber™ Provides Increased Flexibility While Significantly Decreasing Time and Costs for Cabling Projects Smart Choice Communications is an end-to-end telecommunications consulting and management company that provides a full range of innovative infrastructure design, voice and data solutions, and cabling and wiring services to its growing client roster. The company is currently undergoing rapid expansion into the healthcare and retail industries, and Chief Technology Officer Basil Stepanov is always on the lookout for new products and services to better serve the demanding technology needs of this customer segment. Stepanov first encountered TiniFiber while working on an extensive wiring job for a large television producer. “For this project, speed was of the essence,” remarked Stepanov. “When the client is constantly pushing large files under tight deadlines, it’s our job to make sure everything runs smoothly and with no hiccups. TiniFiber helps us do just that.” Since that first installation over a year ago, Smart Choice has continually scoped out TiniFiber for a wide variety of projects and is working towards making Micro Armor Fiber the new standard for all cabling jobs going forward. “Micro Armor Fiber is tougher than other fiber without a doubt,” says Stepanov. “It provides maximum flexibility and gives us much more versatility, allowing us to work in large buildings and get around bends without worrying about cracking or breaking.” During some fiber-optic installations there is a need to provide extra protection for the cable due to the installation environment. That environment may be underground or in buildings with congested pathways. Installing an armored fiber-optic cable in these scenarios provides extra protection for the optical fiber and added reliability for the network, lessening the risk of downtime and cable damage due to rodents, construction work, weight of other cables and other factors. “We’ve done a lot of installs in large stadiums and schools, and inevitably the client always requests changes a year or more later,” says Stepanov. “When you’re using standard fiber and moving it at an angle, it could potentially break and cost the client tens of thousands of dollars. Bottom line: when fiber breaks in a 100-story building it’s a huge, expensive disaster.” Working with TiniFiber has helped Smart Choice save their clients significant time and financial resources. Measuring 65% lighter in weight and 75% smaller in size than popular Aluminum Interlocking Armor (AIA) fiber optic cables, Micro Armor Fiber translates into more versatility, lower shipping and installation costs, and decreased manpower hours to complete projects. “When scoping out new technology, the most important thing we look for is how it can help our clients,” Stepanov added. “With TiniFiber, it was a no-brainer.”
