This Past Winter, WireIE not only Survived, but Thrived

The Canadian winter of 2013-14 made for some harsh conditions throughout the country. Between the never-ending snowfalls and the ice storm in Ontario, we knew we were in for a challenge. Not only did WireIE survive this winter, we thrived. To the harsh conditions we say: bring it on.

WireIE prides itself on being an “anywhere, anytime” kind of company, providing Ethernet to underserved areas of Canada. Our engineering, operational best practices and state-of-the-art equipment helped us flourish through this difficult winter and deliver quality CE standard services.

WireIE’s three-pronged approach to success: best-in-class Ethernet technology and equipment engineered for the environment; intelligent monitoring and early intervention practices; and an emergency response network to quickly resolve issues. The Ethernet equipment we use is designed to withstand the tough Canadian environment. When deployed, the equipment is housed in temperature-regulated structures which strategically creates a barrier between it and the weather.

WireIE extends existing networks to places where terrain does not allow for fiber deployment, or where trenching fiber is impractical. The WireIE team can deploy digital radio technology, faster and more efficiently than building networks with fiber. Where possible, we leverage existing structures to gain vertical height enabling strong signal transmission in all weather; this can reduce construction cost and assembly time. We find intelligent routes to connect underserved locations, while still fulfilling our high standards for quality of service and technical excellence.
Our best in class Network Operations practice gives us the ability to effectively monitor and manage network performance. We provide early intervention services, where our technical experts are able to preemptively solve problems before they occur. Finally, our strategically deployed emergency response team works day and night to ensure on-site troubleshooting if needed. We take a proactive approach to sparing and resource management which allows us to respond to and resolve issues quickly.

WireIE’s experiencing tremendous growth with the number of circuits provisioned and managed in 2013 alone. Our ability to sustain quality of service with consistently high performance and availability is a testament to the effectiveness of our change management practice. We are experts in preventing complex changes from having an adverse effect on the stability and performance of our services.

WireIE didn’t just survive this winter, we thrived. Even through the harshest conditions, WireIE remains a reliable, consistent and high-quality partner that delivers results with exceptional client experience.
