Telecommunications infrastructure relies on bridges to bring voice, data, and high-speed internet to people around the world. Here in the U.S., many of today’s most notable technological advancements would not be possible without continued improvement to the country’s telecom infrastructure system.
Bridge-attached telecom utilities are particularly vulnerable to the elements. Conversely, they’re typically much easier to modify than telecom utilities that are buried or otherwise inaccessible. The basis of maintaining bridge-attached utilities for telecom is simple.
Telecom infrastructure is the physical network providing telecommunications services to cities, towns, and even whole countries. Telecom is one of the fastest-changing industries in the world, particularly among underdeveloped countries that are in the midst of never-before-seen connectivity booms.
Aptus works with a wide variety of bridge piping materials. Depending on the specific application, dozens of materials are suitable to house and contain bridge-attached utilities. It’s imperative for the durability of utilities that the proper material(s) be implemented as early as possible.

There are over 600,000 bridges in the United States. A vast majority of are publicly traveled and managed by local, state, or federal agencies such as the Department of Transportation. As public-facing utilities have changed, so too have their interconnectivity with bridge infrastructure. Let’s look at how the telecom industry’s unprecedented growth has affected America’s public bridge network.

The history of telecommunications is but a footnote on the larger history of communication. American telecom, then, has an even shorter history; the physical infrastructure of U.S. telecommunications has changed more in the last two decades than at any point in time.
Telecommunications utilities are becoming increasingly more important to the way society operates. The physical utilities that support America’s telecom infrastructure – telephony, internet access, VoIP, data – are integral to the functional and reliable operation of some of the services we’ve all come to take for granted.
Why are telecommunications utilities so important? Aptus understands.
Telecommunications infrastructure is an industry constantly in-flux. Since the early 1990s, the line between telephone, telecom, and IT hardware has become increasingly blurred and giants in the sector are continuously changing the landscape. Recently, a push has been made by some IT-leaders for telecom and data companies to share hardware, working together to produce a stronger network of infrastructure instead of creating mini-empires.
