Celebrating the life of Will Hicks!

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Will Hicks, a pioneer of fiber optics, passed on Saturday February 14, 2015 at the age of 91. Hicks was recruited by the CIA to develop fiber optic bundles. The fiber optics were originally meant to encode images for spies and have since become popular in the telecommunications industry. The CIA project failed, but Hicks continued his work and in 1959 he helped with the creation of advanced fiber communication systems. After a brief respite from his work, Hicks came back in the 1970′s and started his own company to work on creating an all-optical network. He went on to sell his company to Polaroid in 1982. Hicks continued to work alongside Polaroid even after the sale of his company. Will Hicks was a creative mind with a passion for fiber optics.

 

RIP Will Hicks 1924-2015

 

Fast Trak in Dallas!

Some of our top leaders were chosen to attend the Top Gun meeting in Dallas, TX. on February 6-8, 2015.  Top Gun is a quarterly conference that brings together the top leaders from across the country. We had the opportunity to network with some of the best people in our industry, listen to some incredible speakers, and now we’re ready to implement what we’ve learned. We have already put some new things in place and we are excited to continue growing and expanding!

 

Fiber Optics

fiber-optics

In the past few years the popularity of Fiber-optic communications networks have been expanding rapidly. Fiber-optics use smaller cables to transmit data faster and further. The conductor is made of glass so it is immune to many types of interferences that can cause signal loss. The fiber-optics are also easier to maintain, making the prices lower for the customer.

As more fiber-optics lines are being put down companies need to also get the word out about the services. That’s where we come in. Fast Trak Inc. handles the marketing and promotion of Fiber-optics. We create campaigns for customer acquisition and product awareness. By paying close attention to market conditions we are able to help our clients.

 

 

Fiber Optics vs. Copper Cable Info

  • Fiber Optics are made of Silica Glass surrounded by a “Vulcanized” Rubber jacket for durability. “Vulcanized” Rubber is what car tires are made of – it does not freeze and contracts and expands very little due to heat. (This is becoming a huge use for recycled tired, and what we use to coat fiber optics.)
  • Fiber Optics change information by shooting a laser through it Silica Glass. This makes them free of any electromagnetic interference.
  • Fiber Optics are buried 6 feet underground, as oppose to most copper cables which are only about 4 feet, and thus much more susceptible to expanding and contracting.
  • Some Fiber optics (about 10-15% ) are aerial cables, however they are much more durable, due to their “Vulcanized”  Rubber coating.
  • Most Copper Cables are coated with PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) which is the same plastic the pipes in your house are made out of. No problem for your pipes, because they are at room temperature. Copper Cables in the ground however, are not and this coating cracks and breaks very easily.
  • Other networks use Coaxial Copper Cables from your dish to your house coated in the same PVC. If you have ever the large spool of extra wire under your dish, it is for the expanding and contracting throughout the year. The only Coaxial Copper Cables Fiber Optics use are inside your house to your Set Top Boxes and not susceptible to the above problems due to it being inside..
  • No matter what the other networks tell you, their service doe go out in sever weather occasionally. Usually that is when consumers would need to see the news most. Also, if wind is strong enough to change the angle of your dish, it will not work and require service.
  • The network that previously held its contract for the Football Sunday Ticket, lost its contract due to a possible buyout from other networks.
  • Fiber Optics bundles all 3 (telephone, internet, and TV) all into one company. This greatly improves security and simplicity.
  • The only limitation to Fiber Optic internet speeds are what you choose to pay for. The network is set so everyone on a block could run a business out of their house if needed. If you decide you want even faster internet, simply call our network. They will come install a new router to get the speed you need, its that easy.

Fast Trak Inc PR Log

An Eventful New Year at Fast Trak Inc.
ALEXANDRIA, VA – Fast Trak Inc., a Virginia-based company that specializes in marketing and promotions, has announced a series of events that will mean a jam-packed New Year for team members.

Fast Trak Inc
PRLog – Jan. 23, 2015 – ALEXANDRIA, Va. — One recent achievement was the invitation of three team members from Fast Trak Inc. to attend the quarterly Top Leaders’ Meeting in Dallas, Texas. With a strict invitation-only policy in place, lucky leaders get the chance to develop their skills and strengths, with particular attention on how to improve the weak links within a company. The conference involves a full day of uplifting guest speakers; entrepreneurs who steer the conversation and introduces activities that encourage networking and finding an active way to solve problems.

Melvin Cabellero, Maria Allen and Steven Herren were chosen as Fast Trak Inc.’s delegates for the latest event. Speaking about the convention, the company’s owner Ramses Gavilondo said, “Melvin, Maria and Steven were natural choices to attend the latest Top Leaders’ meeting. They have shown time and again how they are born to lead, and their efforts in our extensive training program allowed their potential to shine through. Over time, we envisage great things for their careers, and hope that their newfound knowledge and energetic style will benefit our business’ growth.”

In other news, an upcoming road trip to Long Island in New York will allow Fast Trak Inc.’s growing team of representatives to learn what it’s like to operate in other markets. The event is also seen as a way to demonstrate that the company’s team members have what it takes to endorse clients in unfamiliar territories.

Fast Trak Inc.’s management added, “There comes a time when we will be reaching market saturation for our clients in the current areas we work in. However, we want to set our sights further, and use our tried-and-tested methods for marketing and promotions in new areas. Given the appetite we’re seeing from consumers for the products we endorse in high footfall areas, it’s an expansion that we believe will go far.”

 

Consumers Becoming More Concerned about What Retailers Know about Their Shopping Habits

There has been considerable furor surrounding the extent to which the NSA has been monitoring the personal information of the public, which could include email and phone calls. Similarly, the concern has also grown in retailers, with some of the bigger brands apparently now able to tell if a customer is pregnant. Many people think that they are shopping anonymously, but the loyalty card schemes that many Americans sign up for mean that they are trading their privacy for bargains.

The same applies with credit card transactions, perhaps in a grocery store or online. Many supermarkets are now able to target advertising based on the products that people buy the most, and can even predict when a person is next likeliest to shop with them.

Although many people were happy to reveal a little about themselves in order to secure a better deal, the tide is now changing. That’s where services from Fast Trak Inc. come into play. The business offers a personalized service, without intrusion into privacy. The public can enjoy frank and honest conversations about the products on offer, without the need for a business to know the ins and outs of their personal income, address, shopping habits, and lifestyle choices. In essence, it means the shopping experience is pared back to promoting products without being intrusive.

Ramses Gavilondo, the owner of Fast Trak Inc. added, “Customers love being the center of attention in high footfall areas. However, they want to be treated as people, not as numbers. As such, all of our representatives make an effort to build a relationship that focuses on trust and ensuring they feel good about themselves. Everyone is able to benefit from low, introductory prices without having to sign their lives away on a privacy policy. Overall, this means everybody can benefit from the way that we perform marketing and promotions. We’re helping clients to make their promotional efforts ethical again, delivering great results and reaching out to the public without bothering their daily lives. After all, as we target high footfall areas where people spend their disposable income, we’re a welcome addition into the retail therapy experience.”
