NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Mobilitie, the largest privately-held wireless infrastructure firm in the nation, has broken ground on a massive new fiber network across the Bay Area. Mobilitie is building nearly 200 route miles of fiber that will reach 60% of the Bay Area’s fiber market. The first phase, currently in construction, will run through the Transbay Tube (TBT) and provide much needed additional fiber connectivity between San Francisco and Oakland, a route that is otherwise highly constrained. Mobilitie’s TBT route will have extended fiber and telecom capabilities to multiple data centers in both markets.
As part of a larger project to bring improved end user mobile connectivity throughout the entire Bay Area, Mobilitie’s fiber network will also reach more than 40 of the largest data centers. The resulting network will serve the fast growing Silicon Valley market with much needed diverse fiber options, providing more than 2,000 technology companies with high-speed and reliable connectivity.
“Expanding our fiber capabilities in the Bay Area will bring much needed infrastructure to the San Francisco market, providing more options and changing the way businesses connect all over the region. Mobilitie will have a fully diverse ring across the Bay Area in addition to multiple metro loops,” said Christos Karmis, Mobilitie CEO. “As a leading provider of telecommunications infrastructure, we’re always looking for ways to deliver the most robust and cost effective connectivity services to our customers. With this new massive fiber backbone, we are excited to expand not just our traditional services for enterprises and wireless networks, but also the next generation of connectivity and edge computing services.”
Mobilitie is also improving indoor wireless connectivity throughout the Bay Area by leveraging the fiber network as the backbone for indoor 5G wireless networks at properties that will be on or near net. “Indoor wireless networks are core to our business,” continued Karmis. “We operate hundreds of wireless networks across the country and at some of the largest and highest traffic locations in the world. Our robust fiber network and backbone will provide the underlying connectivity to multiple wireless networks throughout the entire Bay Area.”
