Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) December 18, 2010
FiberLight, LLC announced today it has launched a new initiative to drive its fiber even deeper into its 21-market footprint by identifying an additional 8,000 near-network buildings to serve along the 4,200 route mile footprint the company owns and operates. FiberLight is actively building new fiber infrastructure to extend into the new locations as well as constructing more protected network rings to serve additional clients.
“FiberLight’s value to the market has always been our ability to deliver optical transport services that are diverse and highly reliable. With our preference for underground facilities, we can provide clients with a more stable and secure network platform than the typical cable and CLEC networks that tend to ride the pole lines,” said Michael P. Miller, CEO & Founder of FiberLight. “Because of our massive footprint, FiberLight is able to target more than 8,000 unique buildings and towers near our network that we can cost-effectively serve with new, state of the art, mission-critical fiber while providing connectivity to those businesses back to any of the more than 200 key data centers and carrier hotel facilities where we are already interconnected.”
As one of the nation’s leading providers of mission critical, high performance fiber optic networks, FiberLight’s financially sound position enables it to extend its market reach further by deploying a carefully considered capital investment strategy. By absorbing that portion of customer infrastructure costs, FiberLight’s clients will be able to reinvest the savings into other uses such as data centers, application development and new, greener facilities.
FiberLight will begin expanding its network in Dallas, Texas next quarter when it connects more than 150 additional buildings to the network backbone, officials said.
“FiberLight has developed a platform for delivering a truly differentiated network experience to the marketplace, building networks that are not only performance aware in the traditional network sense, but now application aware and people aware, allowing for real productivity growth and optimal uptime for the business as a whole, not just the network,” Mr. Miller said.
By extending its footprint and network capabilities, increasing the availability of services delivered in its geographic footprint and by optimizing value for its customers, FiberLight continues its corporate focus of delivering significant value to its customers.
