CableLan Products, Inc. has been the choice for Norfolk fiber optic cables for over twenty years. We service national and global companies with the care and service you’d expect from a local company. In fact, LAN is an industry acronym for “Local Area Network.” It refers to a computer network that that is confined to a limited area such as a commercial office building or personal residence.
Known as the “County of Presidents”, Norfolk, Massachusetts was founded on prestige. Incorporated by Governor John Hancock in 1793, Norfolk has been the birthplace of four Presidents of the United States: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy, and George Herbert Walker Bush.
This gorgeous pocket of the northeast is comprised of twenty-eight communities along the south and west of Boston. A delicate balance of small-town charm mixed with big-city amenities, makes Norfolk a great place to live, work, and grow.
Establishing our company in Norfolk over 20 years ago was the best decision we have made. Not only was there a need for a Norfolk cabling company, but the supreme location, salt-of-the-earth people, and support was what drew us to the area.
20 years is a long time; we’ve certainly had the opportunity to grow our business. Since our inception, we’ve had the pleasure to work with some of the best and the brightest. CableLAN Products helps power the University of Rhode Island, campus wide. Being able to assist the young minds of the future is what our company is also about.
We also have a strong presence in the Boston area. CableLAN has helped rewire the Boston Garden, now known as TD Garden, as well as the beloved New England Sports Network (NESN) in Watertown, Massachusetts.
The future lies in the way we communicate; from the digital sphere to your professional circles, cables are the pathways to service and success. The path to wireless goes back to the 1900s. In 1909, Italian inventor and electrical engineer, Guglielmo Marconi and Karl Ferdinand Braun won the Nobel Prize in Physics “in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy.”
The radio was the first step towards wireless communication but it wasn’t until Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, officially debuted the web as a publicly available service. On August 23rd, 1991, users were able to open up the web and begin their online journey. The World Wide Web marked the beginning of a new generation. It has grown, shifted and swelled to the necessity is today. It has connected billions of people across the globe, provided millions of jobs, and will continue to adapt and evolve with technology.
Another Nobel Prize winner, Sir Charles Kao, the “father of fiber optic communications,” brought our future a little closer. In the 1960s, Kao and his team discovered specific properties of glass that laid the foundation for fiber optic communication.
Fiber optic communication has changed the way we work. Our team educates clients about product options and delivers cost-effective solutions to for their projects. Companies tend not to realize the significance fiber optics cables offer their business or organization. They are more than just bunched up cords that the IT department deals with, they are the roadways to communication.
We can thank intelligent minds, engineers, and global entities for creating the internet, cable television, telephones, computer networking, lighting and much more. However, it is the fiber optic cables that brings these amenities into our homes and offices.
