FiberLight Continues to Accelerate Growth Through Channel Partnership With AVANT Communications

Chicago-Based Master Agent Enables Optimized Telecom Procurement via Strategic Partnerships

ATLANTA, GA — 5/24/2010

FiberLight, LLC, one of the nation’s leading providers of mission-critical, high-performance fiber optic network solutions, announced today it has added AVANT Communications as a Master Agent in its National Channel Partner and Agent program.  FiberLight is building a strong relationship with AVANT through the program, which provides partners ongoing pricing and technical support for opportunities in the sale of FiberLight’s LightSource® product line and dark fiber services.

Introduced in January 2006, FiberLight’s National Channel Partner program empowers its partners to offer clients a rapid response to network design and customization for end-to-end network solutions, while providing support throughout the complex sales process.

“With FiberLight’s growing LightSource product line, we can help our customers deploy a secure and dedicated network solution that leverages FiberLight’s flexibility in terms of pricing, terms, state-of-the-art design architecture and robust metro network structure in vertical markets that are largely underpenetrated,” said Jennifer Gallego, AVANT Communications VP of Strategic Sales. “AVANT Communications believes in positioning itself with next generation players, and FiberLight fits our business model perfectly as they consistently deliver SLAs above industry standards, including 99.999% reliability, low latency, often sub 2 milliseconds, and a complete set of redundancy options.”

“AVANT Communications will provide considerable value by extending FiberLight’s reach into the market while strengthening FiberLight’s position as a trusted industry partner,” said Ben Edmond, FiberLight Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “FiberLight’s scalable product solutions include Ethernet, wavelengths and IP Transit, SONET, native storage networking as well as dark fiber. This product portfolio is a great complement to AVANT and their clients’ next generation needs.”

FiberLight, a trusted industry leader providing secure connectivity for network enabled applications enterprise businesses require, and AVANT, considered a leading channel partner with the experience needed to assist customers in understanding complex network choices, as well as the implications of fiber type, network architecture and network protocols used, expect to strengthen market share significantly with the new alliance.
