||Dark fiber exists alongside or underneath the roadways of much of the United States, waiting to be used. With a simple installation involving only the connection of a head unit, Terra Sound’s DAS technology can unlock dark fiber to provide powerful transportation data. The proven capabilities of this system include traffic flow monitoring and pothole detection.
The webinar will explore Terra Sound’s recent installation along a major US highway. Please join us and learn about the exciting developments of DAS technology for Smart City applications. Presented by Matthew Wolfe, Jeremy Karst and Darren Wolfe.
