Utility Fiber & Wireless
Utilities and co-ops use fiber and wireless to increase reliability, enhance capabilities and reduce cost in their distribution plants.

Connecting substations, reclosers and distributed generation gives utilities better control and new capabilities to route around failures to reduce outage times to customers. UTILIFI, powered by Magellan Advisors, custom designs and builds fiber and wireless networks to support utilities’ growing communication needs.
