Axiom Fiber Networks, a telecom provider operating in the greater New York City metropolitan region, has announced its official launch. It is set to offer dark-fiber services and custom solutions to enterprise and carrier customers in the New York metropolitan area.
Initially it will provide high-count fiber routes between key traffic inter-exchanges in New York City.
CEO Felipe J. Alvarez brings more than 25 years of telecommunications experience gained from companies such as Sidera Networks (formerly RCN Metro), Con Edison Communications, Hibernia Networks and Verizon.
“I am thrilled to be back at building a service provider business that not only addresses continued market demand for fiber connectivity, but also gaps in the marketplace in areas such as customer service, deal flexibility and speed of delivery,” said Alvarez. “We have assembled a proven leadership team that offers a deep understanding of the complexities of deploying and operating a successful telecommunications network infrastructure, and that shares a common passion for customer focus and customer service.”
Using the latest-generation fiber, the 20-mile, 864-strand core network deployment began in late 2014. The first stage, connecting multiple carrier hotels, is scheduled to be complete in the first quarter of 2015, with the remaining stages finalized in the second quarter.
“What truly sets us apart is the solution value we offer to customers – Axiom Fiber Networks’ focus is making sure that the customer service experience is the best that it can possible be – we have a talented team of experts ready to deliver a new level of service in the industry,” said Alvarez. “With a name like Axiom, you can bet that we want customers to resonate our motto: ‘speed, simplicity and confidence.’”
