Whether we’re deploying drones for geospatial collection or virtual field engineering, our approach to Turnkey Fiber is to find and exploit efficiencies that drive more nimble, precise engagements.
Essentia possesses the experience and has built the local relationships to design, permit, build, and manage Turnkey Fiber solutions within budget and at speeds never before experienced. Our entrepreneurial mindset has enabled us to execute in a big way without getting in our own way — or yours.
Turnkey Fiber Capabilities:
- Site selection
- Determining route feasibility
- Creating designs to carrier specs
- Managing permitting and construction
- Testing and optimizing build-outs, as well as closing out documentation
- Upkeep, maintenance, constant monitoring and emergency restoration
- Providing connectivity to small cells, towers, buildings, metros, and backhaul/fronthaul or longhaul
- Smart City solutions

Innovation In Action
eSpeed at Work: Turnkey Fiber
- Problem: A major Carrier was falling dramatically behind schedule on a time-sensitive Fiber project in the Northeast Florida area. After a year of struggling with the complexities of the municipality, the original vendor was unable to obtain approval to begin the engineering phase of the project. The Carrier moved on, bringing in Essentia.
- Solution: Essentia first turned to its Project Playbooks, which are comprehensive game plans geared to leverage the team’s political relationships and overcome obstacles in specific jurisdictions. After gaining approval to begin field engineering on the Northeast Florida Fiber Project, Essentia then opened its high-tech tool box, deploying drones to perform the initial field work. These drones quickly and thoroughly canvassed the site while capturing 1,000 photos per mile traveled.
- Results: Called in on a Tuesday morning, Essentia completed the field data collection on Wednesday — about a one-day turnaround. Plus, it was done with zero travel costs and minimal opportunity for human error. This initial win, which cut field engineering by 90% and CAD time in half, laid the groundwork for completing the first 10,000-ft.-phase of the project in about 60 days, well within the 90-day schedule.
