Woven includes fiber-optic technology which offers greater energy efficiency and greater reliability. The shift from copper wire to fiber-optic cable has resulted in reduced energy consumption in data centers as they provide more energy efficiency than traditional copper-based networks requiring less power to transmit data over longer distances. Additionally, fiber–optic cables have a longer lifespan than copper requiring less frequent replacement of cables and are more scalable and efficient, accommodating increases in demand through less material usage.

Woven enables community access to social supports and education, increases digital inclusion and quality of life, and weaves community needs into the digital economy.

We interact with your community and get to know their broadband needs. Whether through in-person events, virtual gatherings, or door-to-door visits, we discover exactly what your residents desire for improved broadband, helping make this digital community fabric stronger and more connected.
When time to build broadband connectivity demand, Woven provides a demand aggregation tool, enabling you to collect grassroots demand for better broadband and pre-sell internet connections. This tool helps build your broadband network, finding interested customers, signing them, and then spreading the word and increasing your chances of success. This tool also provides market intelligence, competition, and market potential, giving greater visibility into the network’s future revenue potential.
Open Access Network Provisioning & Management
Scalable open access networks allow communities to own and maintain the fiber infrastructure layer and lease it out for others to deliver services, much like an airport that houses several different airlines. Customers have the freedom to build a bundle of services from several providers that suits them best, which means maximum consumer power, an open and level playing field for any kind of provider, and no restrictions for introduction of future services.
The open access network model creates lower prices, higher quality services, and bigger assortment that improves resident take-rates. It also accelerates growth and increases your return on your broadband investment.
Fiber and Network Asset Management
Many communities are unable to operate and manage their broadband networks due to lack of knowledge and experience. However, with Woven, you can manage your network and maintain the success of your fiber infrastructure. Our experience includes fiber asset management, GIS visualization, capacity planning, and field word order and fault management services. You can rely on our expertise to help guide you and learn the skills needed to manage your broadband investment.
