What is "The Aspen Method?"
We created “The Aspen Method” of fiber network infrastructure from decades of experience in network development, design, configuration, and implementation. Here are the five basic principles that comprise “The Aspen Method.”
Active Ethernet and
The Active Ethernet (AE) technology allows residential and business subscribers to access the Internet through a point-to-point fiber (P2P) connection. A P2P connection provides subscribers with Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) or Fiber-to-the-Business (FTTB) services with a dedicated fiber connection. With this future-proof methodology, you have unlimited flexibility and capacity.
Although Aspen believes strongly in Active Ethernet technologies, we remain technologically agnostic, committed to implementing what works MOST effectively for our communities and their individual needs.
Our team comprises professionals with network design, field application, and network operation backgrounds. Our focus is to design networks balancing ease of installation and maintenance, the efficiency of construction, subscriber installation and experience, and long-term operational costs as crucial decision drivers.
We design our networks with 40Gbps backbone architecture and a dedicated 10Gbps symmetrical (upstream and downstream) committed bitrate for subscriber service innately upon installation.
Having a symmetrical internet connection is crucial. This is because you can upload heavy files, make video calls, post content to social media, upload files to servers, and even live stream over modern platforms, like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch.
Aspen Smart Networks deliver “five-nines” or 99.999% uptime reliability. There is simply no better option on the market for organizations or communities that require reliable, robust connectivity.
Enabling Smart Technology
Aspen is a leader in integrating “Smart Community” systems and technologies. We partner with technology pioneers to develop and deploy Parking Management, Cameras, Network-based Security Systems, and Traffic/Pedestrian Monitoring. As a result of our innovative design principles, Aspen is regularly sought after by Bosch North America for integration expertise, in addition to ShotSpotter and other security-related developers. Aspen knows how to make technology reliable, economical, and effective.
Introducing Network-in-a-Box by Aspen Smart Networks
The Aspen network in a box is a compact and innovative solution that offers up to 10 Gbps connectivity to up to 552 residential and business premises. By taking one fiber in a right of way, you can multiply it by several hundred thousand, providing the most cost-effective fiber optic connectivity for rural America.
In addition, since it’s a point-to-point (P2P) technology, it’s future-proof. It is possible to upgrade the electronics at the ends of fibers over the next 30 to 50 years. The concept is similar to replacing the cans at the ends of a string; the string remains the same, but we can upgrade the cans. As a result, NIAB can serve both middle-mile and last-mile connectivity with “air gap” layers for physical security separation for mission-critical applications like SCADA and financial transactions. The service delivery network uses the Selby method to backhaul the subtending rings and additional “spider-webbing” backbone to backhaul connectivity.
Aspen does more. So you can, too.
