Cable Installation and Maintenance

Orion Management, LLC installs and maintains complex cabling infrastructure for critical communications systems within mass transit, and large-scale military and commercial campuses. Performing complete installation and testing to ensure safety and compliance, Orion Management has installed several hundred thousand feet of fiber and Inside-Outside (I/O) cabling to date for Government and commercial customers.

Orion Management’s fiber and I/O cabling technical and management services have won many accolades for technical achievements. Orion’s certified technicians conduct fiber optic cable tests for WMATA, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Department of State, and General Contractors. Testing procedures include: testing each fiber optic strand and recording color, location, length, and decibel loss; labeling each cable using a lettering/numbering system along with junction box location; and conducting conduit labeling. Orion personnel physically view the conduit, devise technical drawings/blueprints to record replacement needs in exact locations and relay the information to the Project Manager for corrective action.

Orion technicians and project managers work closely with their customers to coordinate the necessary approvals for work plans around schedules to minimize disruption and maximize communication during the project and through completion.

For the U.S. Air Force Targeting Center at Langley Air Force Base, Hampton, Virginia, Orion was chosen to install, terminate, test and label a fiber optic infrastructure for their Secured Internet Protocol Network (SIPRNET) and Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) networks. Orion’s on-site Project Manager oversaw a select team of technicians who successfully performed 85-SIPRN drops and 85-JWICS drops; with an additional 45 installed into modular furniture. Through the duration of the project, the PM served as the General Contractor (GC) to the overarching team comprised of Orion and four other subcontractors.

Awarded multiple contracts with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), Orion successfully executed extensive physical infrastructure initiatives. Our portfolio spans cable supply and installation services over 8.5 miles of 96-strand, single mode, fiber optic cable – enabling connectivity in Virginia, between the West Ox Road Bus Station, Vienna Passenger Station, and the West Ox Road Communications Room located at the Public Safety Operations Center (PSTOC) for VDOT and WMATA.
