Embracing New Telecommunications Technologies
RuralLynx is a wired, wireless cabling company that specializes in high speed wireless internet and network cabling. Able to install and maintain tower networks, their goal is to establish an independent WISP Network (wireless internet service provider).
Located east of Peterborough in the town of Havelock, it is a home based business that services Peterborough County and surrounding area.
Ray Abrams owner of RuralLynx has many years of experience in the wired, wireless telecommunications industry. He recognizes that Canadians are rapidly embracing new telecommunications technologies
Ray sees the need for high speed wireless internet, on the east side of Peterborough, Hastings, and Northumberland Counties. Existing telecommunication companies have not provided enough coverage or service in these regions.
Using a straight forward approach to the customer with a one price bill, no bandwidth restrictions, no contract and a service orientated attitude. RuralLynx concentrates on low coverage areas to satisfy customers that still don’t have any high speed wireless internet access.
Employed by Bell Canada in 1984 Ray Abrams (RuralLynx Owner) acquired technical skills in the Installation and Repair department, servicing business and residential clients. Transferring to the greater Toronto area he became proficient in the field of telecommunications learning skills such as fiber optics, outside utility cable splicing and network cabling. Ray quickly took on leadership roles and ran large cabling installations. At that time examples of projects he under took were the CBC Building and Toronto Metro Hall. In 2000 rebuilding the structured cabling in the RBC Tower in Toronto with Plan Electric and RBC Project Management. This was a great example of working in a partnership role to accomplish a large scale live environment rebuild.
In 1995 Ray left Bell Canada to join the Electrical Sector. The International Brotherhood of Electrical workers welcomed him to their organization to start running Network Cabling projects in the Toronto area .
As wireless technology grew he took an active role as a supervisor with such companies as Black and McDonald and MTel Wireless solutions installing cellular sites on towers and roof tops.
Ray became site supervisor for Black and McDonald to install the structured cabling at Peterborough Regional Health Center. Working together with Ontario Electric they completed one of Peterborough’s most historic success stories.
Today Ray owns and operates RuralLynx Network Cabling and Wireless Internet Service in the Peterborough Region.
