  • Fiber Path Network Design
  • Broadband Planning & Consulting
  • Desktop Research
  • CADD Drawings
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Environmental Impact Assessments
  • Asset Assessment & Inventory
  • Program Management


Engineering & Permitting

We identify required permits and coordinate with necessary, agencies, jurisdictions, and organizations for Right of Way (ROW) access, utility and road crossings, and/or aerial connections. We complete plans and CAD drawings with information necessary for permits and construction.

  • OSP/ISP Engineering
  • Site Survey & Inspection
  • Fiber Path Design
  • Drafting
  • ROW Permitting
  • Utility Pole Attachment Applications
  • Utility Management
  • As-Built Drawings & Verification
Asset 2

Inspection & Verification

We provide inspection services during installation. Our As-Built Verifications are generated with GPS Mapping using survey-grade locations or construction redlines based on budget constraints.

  • As-Built Drawings
  • As-Built Verifications
  • Inspections
  • Bid Management & Procurement
  • Utility Coordination

We Perform a Full Suite of Layer 1 Network Services

Advantage Engineers is a trusted partner that understands the timelines and unique needs associated with fiber design and installation across the full range of fiber project types. Our designs and installations of fiber infrastructures support 5G and beyond.

Turnkey Professional Services Workflow

Client awards route to Advantage. Our team completes scope verification, feasibility, and preliminary route design.

The in-house field technicians conduct field surveys based on what the permit or customer requires.

We initiate the permitting & licensing process, obtain notice to proceed, and manage duration & expiration.

Upon completion, As-Built Verifications are generated with redline drawings and/or GPS Mapping.

The team completes a desktop review, conducts Plat, Facilities, & GIS data research, and identifies required permits.

The team prepares drawings based on make ready analysis, construction guidance, and permitting requirements.

Inspections are conducted throughout the construction process ensuring the scope of work is being adhered to.

Project Types

Long Haul

We design routes to keep optical fiber equipment costs to a minimum. We've worked with ROW owners nationwide, that help establish the features of a property and assess all right-of-way issues. This allows us to keep your project going regardless of the number of jurisdictions it crosses.

Middle Mile

Our fiber optic network designing within urban and suburban ROW requires an understanding of the density--and complexity--of existing infrastructure. Our designs consider potential impacts and aims for minimum permitting time and cost.

Fiber to Everywhere (FTTx)

With a recent study showing record Fiber growth across the U.S. communities that depend on high-speed Internet access are opting to install fiber from a central point directly to the user. Our designs understand the complexity of the FTTx architecture from placing splices, optical network terminations, and slack storage for available expansion. We design efficient routes from hubs to the edge of locations including Home (FTTH), Premise (FTTP), and Tower (FTTT)


Relocations can be overwhelming, with hundreds of little details that must be considered to make sure that disruption to your business is minimal. You want a partner you can trust--Advantage Engineers can help. We understand the issues and can help you manage them. From coordination to oversight of cut over to new facilities, we work with you to plan out a seamless transition without unplanned disruptions to the network.
