St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
NEF, a leading telecommunications consulting and procurement firm focused on dark fiber, colocation and high-capacity bandwidth, announced today that American Fiber Comm has listed their unique 17.2 mile multi-duct system located throughout St. Louis, Mo., on the NEF Asset Marketplace. The Asset Marketplace is a hub of available fiber optic and colocation assets, connecting buyers and sellers of unused fiber capacity, dormant duct systems and colocation properties.
American Fiber Comm’s St. Louis conduit and fiber routes are noteworthy because of their wide-spread placement throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area, from the central business district to the up-and-coming Washington Avenue loft district to the industrial areas of the city. The 1.4 million feet of duct connects to the major carrier hotels and points of presence in the city and also spans the Mississippi River to serve the Illinois side of the metro area.
“St. Louis is a strategic location, and this asset is a nice addition to any network’s Midwestern footprint,” said Michael Murphy, CEO of NEF. “The fact that the asset is available as a whole or in parts gives potential buyers flexibility as well as scalability if they want to add on at some point.”
Other key benefits of the asset include proximity to multiple cell towers, diverse connection to the University of Missouri -St. Louis campus, diverse (two) river crossings as well as the robust security and superior construction. The conduit is encased in 10”steel all directionally bored. The system also boasts marked man holes ranging from 750 to 1000 feet apart throughout most of system. The manholes are strategically placed adjacent to various intersections so that connectivity can easily be achieved in any direction.
When asked why American Fiber Comm chose NEF as a company and the Asset Marketplace to gain more exposure and list its assets, CEO Tom Allen responded, “Michael Murphy and his team are very knowledgeable and trustworthy. They’re the right people for the job.”
