FiberLight Sets Nov. 15 for 100G Turn-Up

FiberLight will turn up its previously announced 100-Gigabit (100G) long-haul connectivity between its metro networks on November 15.

The offering expands the company’s existing transport portfolio and allows customers to work directly with FiberLight for point-to-point connectivity between cities in different states across its dense, fiber-reach network of metro markets.

“FiberLight’s long haul transport gives customers the peace of mind that their quality of service will consistently meet our best-in-class SLAs and support commitments both within and between cities,” comments Kevin Coyne, FiberLight CFO.  “Further, these long-haul circuits connect our dense metro networks in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast with our expansive reach in Texas, making FiberLight’s footprint one continuous carrier-class network.”

Traditionally, FiberLight has been a go-to provider of last-mile service for companies needing point-to-point transport and dedicated bandwidth within some of the country’s most rapidly growing cities. This latest offering directly connects hubs in Ashburn, Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, Tampa and Washington, D.C., and will provide additional connectivity into its many other networks in Texas, including Houston and Austin.  The diverse 100G backbone network ring also provides interconnection between various markets and subsea landing points, and enhances connectivity to thousands of on-net and near-net buildings.

“Connecting our robust metro networks to one another is a logical next step for FiberLight and one that has been a long time coming,” said Chris Bradford, FiberLight’s EVP of sales and marketing.  “I am thrilled our enterprise customers will now have complete connectivity between regions for their real-time, mission-critical and data-center applications, entirely on the FiberLight network.”

FiberLight owns and manages more than 1.65 million fiber miles in over 400 cities and towns across the United States.  It also maintains over 17,000 backbone access points, 1,700 on-net locations and presence in over 100 data centers across the country.
