Fiber Optics

We design, deploy and maintain fiber-based networks that deliver reliable, secure high-speed internet services to homes, businesses and public facilities.

Fiber optic communication is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of infrared light through transparent cables made of glass fibers that are as thin as a human hair.

First developed in the 1970s, fiber optics have revolutionized the telecommunications industry because the internet bandwidth and speed they provide are much higher than those of networks based on copper or metallic cables; this allows fiber networks to support unlimited capacity to support new services and keep up with consumer and technological demand. Fiber-based networks are also more secure, as it is nearly impossible to penetrate them with surveillance equipment.

MER Group, which has decades of history manufacturing, installing and maintaining communications infrastructure, was an early adopter of fiber optic technology. We started working with fiber optics in 2011 because we identified an opportunity to bring added value to our customers (internet providers) and their customers (internet users). Since then, we have installed tens of thousands of kilometers of fiber optic infrastructure in Israel, Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa, including complex projects that involve set up of fiber optic backbones and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) systems.

MER’s turnkey approach covers all stages of fiber optic network deployment. Our expert team is the ideal partner for operators looking for added-value services, from engineering, planning and design, through business development consulting, to creating new, profitable services, smart applications and security solutions.

MER has become a global leader in utilizing the innovative micro trenching technique, which allows faster installations of last-mile fiber optic networks with minimal environmental impact and minimal disruption to local communities. With an extensive footprint in Israel, Latin America, Asia and Africa, we can offer our customers local management and support, regional experience, short lead-time and short time-to-market, as well as an efficient logistics chain.

We at MER believe fiber optic infrastructure is essential for development of smart cities and secure societies. Our mission is to make fiber optic networks widely available worldwide in public facilities, businesses and homes.
