Your network cabling infrastructure is a critical component of the network architecture and serves as the backbone for information flow. However, an IT network can only perform to the level of its weakest link. If the network cabling isn’t installed, tested, and maintained properly, all the computing power in the world won’t eliminate data flow bottlenecks and intermittent problems. ComNet has 30+ years of experience supporting clients who consider their network cabling to be mission critical, not just an afterthought. ComNet designs, installs, and maintains structured cabling systems with a level of quality and professionalism that is unsurpassed in the industry. At ComNet, we realize that our service is only as good as the people that ultimately provide it – our field technicians. Unlike most of our competitors, ComNet relies primarily upon its W-2 workforce to support both local market and remote client engagements. ComNet also enforces strict pre-employment requirements, including drug screening and mandatory safety training. In order to maintain pace with a rapidly changing technological landscape, our technicians receive periodic skills training. This includes manufacturer-specific training and regular updates on the latest telecommunications standards and emerging technologies.
ComNet’s project managers serve as a single point of contact for our clients. This includes not only installation supervision, but also project planning, design assistance, and overall account maintenance. Our PM’s focus on making our client’s businesses more efficient. They work to anticipate future needs to make sure that our clients always stay in-step with evolving technology requirements.
ComNet is incorporated in all 50 states. This operational infrastructure enables us to provide our clients with a consistent, repeatable project solution on a nationwide basis.

ComNet has years of experience in the design and installation of Sumitomo FutureFLEX Air Blown Fiber. Pioneered and patented by Sumitomo, Air Blown Fiber represents a significant advance in conventional fiber optic installation methods. Installed using regular fiber “pulled” installation methods, this advanced solution uses compressed air or nitrogen to “blow” a compact fiber bundle through a tube, speeding installation times and dramatically reducing installation costs.
Some of the benefits of Air Blown Fiber include:
- Improved network and bandwidth scalability
- Quicker moves, adds, and changes, with rapid “fiber on demand” to make reconfiguration changes in minutes or hours instead of days or weeks
- Improved network reliability using trouble-free point-to-point connections instead of splices
- Optimized conduit space with up to 38 data pathways instead of 3 pathways using conventional methods
- Cost savings by eliminating the installation of unused “dark” fiber
- Fewer network problems and outages as new fiber can be installed without any disruption to facility or network operations
Customer demand for communications bandwidth and energy efficiency is growing exponentially. Few technologies deliver a greater return on investment than a Passive Optical Network (PON).
Passive Optical Networking is a revolutionary carrier-grade technology that redefines how services are delivered to the desktop in an enterprise environment. A Passive Optical Network utilizes a point-to-multipoint architecture that can provide over 7,000 Ethernet connections from a single aggregation switch. The inherent benefits of a Passive Optical Network make it an incredible delivery mechanism for the triple play of IT services – voice, data, and video.
ComNet is a certified partner for Tellabs and Zhone, and the industry leader in the design and installation of Passive Optical Networks. ComNet has worked with many enterprises and government agencies to leverage the cost, power and space benefits of an all-fiber infrastructure.
Passive Optical Networks offer many benefits to your organization, including:
- Virtually unlimited bandwidth potential
- Extended reach from single-mode fiber vs traditional copper
- Converge data, voice and video services into a single solution
- Reduce up-front capital costs by 30-70%
- Power consumption savings of up to 80%
- Repurpose up to 90% of closet space toward revenue generation
- Eliminates many costly hardware and maintenance requirements
- Reduce technology refresh cycles
- Meet tangible Green goals
- Higher LEED certification
Equipment Rooms, otherwise known as TR’s, are in constant need of remediation. Refresh cycles for IT equipment are averaging 3 years, which makes proper cable and rack management essential elements of network management. ComNet’s experienced staff can assist with upfront design, new room build-out, and complete remediation.
Our capabilities include:
- Equipment Room Design
- Cabinet and Rack Installation
- Ladder Rack & Underfloor Management
- Patch Cable Management
- Grounding & Bonding
- Tone and ID Remediation
