EdgeConneX and FiberLight, LLC are partnering for the Miami Edge Data Center; EdgeConneX customers will have access to IP VPN, dark fiber and lit fiber services from FiberLight, for content delivery to local-market consumers.
EdgeConneX customers include wireless carriers, service providers, CDN and enterprise clients, which require connectivity services to the companies’ largest common content customers. The EDC also provides connectivity directly into the NAP of the Americas, enabling access to the facility’s 160 global carriers and seven Tier 1 service providers.
“FiberLight’s robust presence in rapidly growing U.S. metro markets syncs with our own current and future roadmap for Edge Data Center expansion, making it an ideal partner for EdgeConneX,” said Clint Heiden, chief commercial officer at EdgeConneX. “Our Edge Data Center, coupled with FiberLight’s high-performance fiber optic offerings, ensure that we are able to provide the fastest delivery of bandwidth-intensive, latency-sensitive content and applications to local South Florida consumers and enterprises.”
FiberLight owns and manages more than 1.6 million fiber miles in over 44 metro areas across the US. The company also maintains over 17,000 backbone access points, 1,700 on-net locations and presence in almost 100 data centers across the nation.
“With bandwidth options up to 100Gbps, FiberLight provides EdgeConneX customers with flexible, state-of-the-art custom solutions for network connectivity throughout Southern Florida,” said John Schmitt, chief development officer at FiberLight. “Our dense fiber infrastructure across the Southeast region allows us to offer content providers and enterprises the most reliable, low-latency connections to leading Edge Data Centers such as the EdgeConneX Miami EDC, as well as NAP of the Americas, one of Miami’s most connected facilities.”
