Annual Metro Connect conference January 26
Metro Connect USA is Capacity Magazine’s 9th Annual metro connectivity and local access conference being held in Miami, Florida, January 26 and 27. More than 150 c-level executives from the wholesale communications market will meet to address industry trends and network with peers. Capacity magazine, which hosts the annual event, provides comprehensive information about issues and services in the telecommunications industry.
Mr. Miller is a 30-year telecom veteran and founder of FiberLight. He has held numerous senior-level positions in the telecommunications industry . In 1996, he was hired as Senior Vice President for Sales and Field Operations for ACSI, which became E-spire in 1997. During this time, along with several other executives, he helped form ACSI-NT, which offered dark fiber and innerduct facilities to the carrier market. In 2005, with the help of Thermo Companies, they bought out ACSI-NT and formed FiberLight, LLC, which provides high-speed optical transport, dark fiber and managed service offerings in 21 markets.
“Our growth strategy is simple: by owning, building and managing our own 500,000 fiber mile network we are able to target and respond to new marketplace opportunities quickly,” Mr. Miller said. “We continue to be successful by taking calculated risks while requiring a short return on investment; this allows us to build new networks while remaining financially sound.”
FiberLight has undergone several ambitious infrastructure projects to date. FiberLight is constructing an additional 100-mile network in Baltimore to create redundancy and diversity beyond Baltimore’s downtown business district. In 2009, FiberLight completed a new 132-mile diversely routed fiber network connecting Chantilly to Culpeper, Virginia. Both networks complement FiberLight’s existing network of more than 300 miles of fiber connecting Baltimore, Southern Maryland, Washington, DC, and the Northern Virginia networks.
