DELIVERING EXCELLENCE IN TELECOMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE
Explore how our clients have resolved complex challenges in network design and construction through Sentrex’s services and expert advice.
Turn-key network design, installation and deployment (FTTH)
Golden Horseshoe (Burlington, Hamilton, Vaughan, Orillia, Midland, Penetanguishene)
Bell Canada committed to provide FTTH to over 1MM homes in the Golden Horseshoe area and partnered with Sentrex to provide a full turn-key solution for this service over several years. Our engineers took advantage of new innovations with micro conduits and micro fibre to design a custom solution that required smaller pathways, reduced the amount of splicing needed and resulted in faster, more efficient deployment with no reduction in quality. We significantly reduced pavement restoration costs by using directional drilling and employing keyhole coring and reinstatement, minimizing the need for open trenching and saving Bell millions of dollars. To date, Sentrex has installed FTTH to more than 90,000 homes and continues to lay fibre to homes across this region.
The team at Sentrex Communications are great partners on our fibre builds in neighbourhoods, condo buildings and to cell towers. Their design and build teams consistently deliver a quality product on time and on budget. Sentrex works closely with Bell, our external partners and residents to complete our fibre construction projects efficiently and help connect customers to Canada’s best broadband network.

“I wanted to thank you again for making our build project such a great success. This was one of the craziest years in are history and there was a lot riding on it. The Sentrex team were a real pleasure to work with. The team handled each challenge extremely well, from the tight schedule, to working in a an environment with restrictions from our landlord, and our demands on how to handle the construction schedule. The most impressive thing to me was when the Sentrex team came across a challenge; they always came to me with a viable solution. From the start of the process to the finish, it went very smoothly. I was also impressed with their professionalism. Having worked with construction crews before, I think you have some of the best hands down. I look forward to working with Sentrex again in the future.”
