DULLES, Va., Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SummitIG, Northern Virginia’s premier network solutions and bandwidth infrastructure provider, today announced the continued expansion of its dark fiber infrastructure throughout the region. The company is on track to complete 50 additional miles of dark fiber network in 2017, adding to its existing 500-mile network infrastructure with unique routes that meet the increasing customer demand. The company also expects to grow its 61 on-net buildings to 70 by the end of the year.
SummitIG’s existing 500-mile fiber optic network, includes unique and densely populated infrastructure stretching from Data Center Alley in Loudoun County to Reston and greater Vienna and Tysons Corner commercial districts to developing data center areas of Prince William County. With its current expansion, SummitIG will extend new network infrastructure to fiber limited corridors of Arlington, Springfield and Lorton to provide unique fiber routes and value sets for its enterprise and federal business. The new network segments will add to SummitIG’s robust infrastructure utilizing 1728 count fiber optic cables to ensure availability.
SummitIG delivers unprecedented levels of performance, security, control, flexibility and scalability to its customers with high-count fiber and diverse route alternatives, transforming how networks are architected and deployed. “The steady demand continues to heat up the market and fuel the need for high performance network connectivity in this region,” said Bill Cook, CEO at SummitIG. “Our network already connects all the key data centers in Loudoun, Fairfax and Prince William counties with high count dark fiber cables, creating a dense networking fabric across the entire metro area. As we continue to expand strategically, we are working with the leaders and developers in the community to make sure that we are enhancing our offering with the density and diversity to meet the needs of the area.”
Northern Virginia is the largest data center market in the world. As expansion sites become more scarce, SummitIG’s offering becomes increasingly critical to meet the need for unique routes with greater control and flexibility. As a result, SummitIG continues to drive strong financial and operational metrics, with total revenue projected to increase by 50% in 2017.
“Another result of our success and the market growth is that we have begun to overbuild segments of the network ensuring inventory is always available for customers,” continued Cook. “Our approach of pre-positioning fibers across our network and in on-net data centers enables us to deliver service extremely fast. In fact, often times we can deliver dark fiber to our customers the same day they place orders.”
