Well it has been a crazy but productive month for us here at Wolfe! We have spent the last four weeks traveling around to different events, meeting with customers, prospective customers, partners and getting the word out about our fabulous, super fast Ethernet services.
Our first stop was Long Beach, California where we exhibited at the Apartment Owners Association’s Million Dollar Trade Show. We had the opportunity to talk with many multi-dwelling operators and owners about Wolfe Residential Connect. There is a real need in Southern California for reliable, fast internet service and they were thrilled to hear they could offer their residents an alternative to the “Big Guy” provider they are currently using and at no cost to the owner/operator. Residents want bigger bandwidth to stream video, play games online or work from home with a reliable connection. Our 100 Mb/s WolfeNet Connect or our 1 Gb/s WolfeNet Extreme Services are great options to meet those big bandwidth needs.
Week two we headed back to Los Angeles for an evening event high atop City Club overlooking downtown LA. What a great night to network with the CIOs and VPs of some of the top companies in the country. We are looking forward to working with these companies over the next few months to build an Ethernet solution for their business.
Next we flew to Las Vegas for Interop, an event designed to empower information technology professionals to make smart business decisions. The three-day event included educational sessions, networking opportunities and an expo featuring the latest in technology solutions. Wolfe was there exhibiting and featured our Ethernet Transport Service, Metro E, VPLS, IPVPN and Wolfe Business Internet services. Over 12,000 people were in attendance and many stopped by our booth to learn about Wolfe. A big congrats to Robin Won who won the iPad mini we gave away at the expo.
Back to Seattle for a quick stop home and then on a plane a day and a half later headed for our final stop in Chicago for ITW (International Telecom Week). ITW is aimed at the global wholesale telecommunications community where attendees from across the globe meet to buy and sell both voice and data products and services. Once again Wolfe had a booth at the show and had the opportunity to interact with many companies in the industry. We made great connections and have some business in the works with several of the people we met there. It was fascinating to see what other companies around the world are developing and we are excited to expand our footprint with the help of these great companies. Dan Lunde from 1025 Connect was the big winner of the iPad Mini drawing.
Phew! It has been a busy but amazing month for us and as a result Wolfe will continue to grow and develop. We really enjoyed meeting everyone in each of our stops and look forward to continuing our conversations. We have a few weeks back in the office putting these conversations into action and then we are off again. Next up, we are off to San Diego June 19-22 for the NAA (National Apartment Association) Education Conference and Exposition and then the following week to New York City for Telecom Exchange on June 26th. We hope to see you there!

We have heard all of the hype about the health benefits of getting more fiber in your diet. It helps things pass through your system easier (you get my drift…). It helps prevent certain diseases. It keeps your weight under control. All really good things, right? But there is another kind of fiber that has gotten a lot of hype lately and also offers many benefits …. fiber optics. This kind of fiber doesn’t do much for your body but is GREAT for your network. Here’s how:
First things first though, what are fiber optics?
Fiber optics is the technology of transferring data through thin, flexible glass (or plastic) tubes through modulated light waves in the form of pulses. Fiber optic cabling is becoming the fastest, smartest, and most flexible way to transmit and receive large amounts of data.
What are the advantages of fiber over traditional metal lines like copper?
High Bandwidth – Fiber optic cables have much higher bandwidth than metal cables, which means they can carry more data. With technologies like cloud services, unified communications, VoIP, and other applications, companies need more bandwidth for these to function properly and optimally. Bigger bandwidth is essential to maintain connectivity, avoid delays or downtime, and ensure things run smoothly. Read more about the demand for higher bandwidth HERE.
Fast – There is nothing more frustrating than things slowing us down. With fiber optic cabling, data is transmitted much faster than traditional cabling because of the increased capacity, which allows for faster reception and delivery of data.
Safety –Fiber optics uses light waves so there is no electrical current passing through the tubes. Therefore there is no heat, which means there is no risk for a fire hazard. Fiber offers the safest option for data transmission.
Lightweight – Fiber optics use cables that are smaller in diameter and thinner, similar in comparison to a human hair. This helps prevent data blockages. They are easier to work with and transport which also lowers the expense.
More Secure/More Efficient – Fiber optics are one of the most secure methods of information transmission. Since this type of cabling transmits light, not electrons, it is able to carry signals long distances and avoid electrical interference from noisy surroundings or cross talk between lines. It also difficult to tap into fiber cable as there is no electromagnetic interference whereas traditional cabling can leak information and is more susceptible making it less effective. Fiber optic systems are more efficient as there is far less loss of data and it is more effective in data transmission. They do not degrade as quickly as copper wiring and there is virtually no signal loss. Additionally, fiber is not affected by weather or environmental conditions like copper wiring.
Better for the Environment – Going green is an even hotter topic than going healthy these days. So do your part and choose fiber. It takes less energy to send light through fiber optic cables. Less power means a lower carbon footprint and as an added bonus that means lower costs!
Overall, fiber optics is a more effective solution for data transmission than traditional methods. Like the fiber you find in the health food aisles of your local grocery store, fiber optics offer many advantages- thin and lightweight, helps prevent annoying blockages (data blockages, that is), efficient, fast, safe, and best of all – it helps your bottom line (no pun intended). It’s no wonder it’s becoming a very attractive option. If you would like to find out more, contact us.
Wolfe is a proud sponsor of the latest Channel Partners Report “High-Speed Ethernet Services: Channel Opportunities & Challenges.” If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, download it HERE for FREE. The report covers Ethernet market demands and drivers, Ethernet service definitions and applications, and key sales opportunities and operational challenges for partners. With the growing demand for Ethernet-based services, there is a huge opportunity for channel partners to offer these services to customers, which will provide them with bigger bandwidth while saving them money. Additionally Ethernet offers a more scalable, flexible and reliable solution making it a great alternative to traditional TDM networks.
Wolfe would love to connect with referral partners interested in selling our Ethernet services. Please contact us to learn about Wolfe and our partner program. In the meantime, read the Channel Partners report and find out more about Ethernet services and how it can help your revenue as a Channel Partner grow.
