BOXBOROUGH, MA — January 16, 2012 — Lightower Fiber Networks, the premier metro fiber and bandwidth provider in the Northeast, will attend PTC 2012 on January 15-18, 2012 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii. Attendees can meet with members of the Lightower team to discuss the latest network growth and recent 100G services announcement.

“PTC provides Lightower the opportunity to network with market leaders about the latest company news and the latest industry trends,” states Herb Boynton, Vice President of Sales for Lightower. “Lightower owns and operates one of the most dense fiber networks in the Northeast with unique routes and access to over 2,800 locations.  Both enterprises and carriers use Lightower to accomplish their mission critical networking needs.”

Lightower continues to aggressively expand its network in the Northeast while also maintaining a leadership position in new network technologies.  Last week, Lightower became the first metro fiber provider to roll out 100G services in the Northeast, including 40 Gb and 100 Gb Ethernet as well as 100 Gb wavelengths.  In 2011, Lightower introduced their Ultra-Low Latency Network which serves the financial industry in the New York City and New Jersey region.  Lightower has acquired six other companies in the Northeast over the past 3 years and has now established itself as the premier metro fiber and bandwidth provider between Boston and New York City and New Jersey.

PTC brings together over 1,400 attendees and is a strategic facilitator for the global telecommunications industry. The Conference provides attendees with a three-day platform to focus on planning, networking, and discovering what the new year will bring.  PTC will examine the many ways powerful global networks as well as ubiquitous and equally-capable mobile devices can support breakthrough applications that create new industries.
