FiberLight Builds High Fiber Count Optical Network In Miami’s Financial District

New Underground Network to Connect Multiple Buildings On Secure Fiber

MIAMI – FiberLight, LLC, one of the nation’s leading providers of mission critical, high performance fiber optic networks, announced today it has completed a new 3.5 mile, 432-count underground network through Miami’s Financial District. The robust network will provide user access to FiberLight’s full LightSource product portfolio, which will be available to building locations from the Miami River to 15th Street and along both sides of Brickell Avenue (U.S. Route 1) as well as Brickell Bay Drive.

The area is home to hundreds of enterprise companies, government and educational facilities, public and private banking institutions and large condominium complexes.

“In the world of finance, network downtime can equate to millions of dollars in lost revenue. FiberLight offers an ultra reliable product with up to 100 percent uptime guaranteed, full ILEC diversity, low latency, and the transport speed that only fiber optic networks can deliver,” said Ben Edmond, FiberLight EVP of Sales and Marketing.

The ability to offer customers Ethernet, Dedicated IP, Wavelengths and SONET as well as dark fiber sets FiberLight apart from its competitors. FiberLight’s high count network enables the company to offer unlimited bandwidth and transport speeds up to 40 Gigs, officials said.

“We are making the investment in the financial district to offer ultra secure routes to support financial transactions today. In addition, companies interested in building private networks will be able to do so without making the significant capital investment in network architecture that would otherwise be required,” said Judd Carothers, Executive Vice President of Network Operations.

The new network connects to FiberLight’s deep and robust South Florida fiber optic network, which offers customers choice because of its diverse ring beginning at its core south of downtown Miami and extending north through Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton, Doral, Plantation, Kendall and Margate.  The over 330 route-mile optical network is constructed for high resiliency and provides access to ultra low latency routes to more than 15 data centers, as well as key undersea cable landing stations and many of the telecom carrier POPs located in the market.
