FiberLight Expands Mission-Critical High Performance Fiber Facilities in South Florida

MIAMI — 4/30/2010 — FiberLight, one of the nation’s largest mission-critical, high-performance optical networking companies, is building capacity and extending its reach in South Florida. FiberLight has constructed new diverse optical network linking Miami to Kendall, Florida, and is increasing its points of presence with the addition of 15 new buildings and laterals in the greater Miami metro from downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton to West Palm Beach. The new expansion increases the FiberLight network in South Florida by an additional 32 miles.

FiberLight’s 300-mile South Florida optical networks offer connectivity to 104 buildings while providing diverse, high fiber count Ethernet services to almost all of South Florida’s data centers. All services are delivered over FiberLight’s wholly owned $1 billion optical network, which connects the majority of cities and economies in the Southern United States.

“We are building new optical networks as quickly as we can to support wireless carriers who must meet increasing bandwidth demands in the 3G and 4G smart phone market and the enterprises who are placing more of the IP production environment into the cloud,” said Judd Carothers, FiberLight’s Senior Vice President of Network Operations. “In addition, we are building out a larger space at the Miami NAP to enable more capacity for our clients seeking trusted onramps to cloud platforms enabled at the NAP .”

FiberLight’s unique South Florida fiber optic network offers customers choice because of its diverse ring structure beginning at its core in the Miami CBD and extending north through Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton, Doral, Plantation and Margate.  The 300-mile optical network provides access to ultra low latency routes to data centers, landing stations and many of the telecom carrier POPs located in the market.

“Our South Florida network is built in a series of 10 diverse rings; our network is optimized for high bandwidth applications and has the networking gear needed to drive those applications. Our customers benefit from reduced CAPEX and OPEX and gain a higher level of performance with our high-quality fiber plant, optimized network architecture and unrelenting pursuit for a great customer experience,” Mr. Carothers said.
