FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of construction experience building mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, announces that it is offering a Managed Dark Fiber Network (MDFN) solution. This managed dark fiber network service allows enterprises to move past deployment limitations to leverage FiberLight’s expert construction, installation, network management and equipment buying power to provision dark fiber’s high levels of flexibility, security and control for as-needed network adjustments.
Currently, enterprise applications and business operations are expanding at unprecedented rates and requiring levels of dynamic capacity that cannot be achieved with lit fiber solutions alone. Sophisticated enterprises demand the ability to scale bandwidth without incurring additional fees, and need higher level network security and control. Dark fiber averts the need to contact service providers or vendors every time service needs to be turned up or down to adjust to market demand — which adds both cost and delays — and its bandwidth is only limited by the equipment that is placed on it.
Dark fiber adds control and cost-efficacy by allowing enterprises to adjust service independent of a provider, but many do not currently have the in-house expertise or upfront capital that may be needed to buy equipment and properly run a dark fiber network. FiberLight’s managed dark fiber network services allow enterprises to move past these limitations to empower future-proof network solutions that grow and operate at the pace of digital and business evolution. Not only does this allow resources to be reallocated on core competencies, but FiberLight’s flexible financing options ensure that clients can purchase in a way that is most beneficial to them. This includes turning a traditional one-time capital expense into a monthly fixed operational expense.
The launch of managed dark fiber network solutions for the enterprise underscores FiberLight’s mission to align its organization and support its traditional channel partners, while enhancing its focus on strategic partners looking to leverage new fiber construction for high-bandwidth, high-capacity networks and dark fiber. FiberLight’s Strategic Partners and Alliances program continues to support the success of its partners’ overall business with the adoption and support of location-based intelligence that features a strategic focus on metro diversity, entrance construction and dark fiber services (IRU, lease, managed, etc.). MDFN expands FiberLight’s service offering collaboration with Ciena, which has been enabling enterprises and the channel with Data Center Interconnect, a 100Gbps wavelength service connecting data centers with high-capacity, secure and diverse data transfer leveraging the Ciena Waveserver® Ai platform.
“We’re proud to bring this managed dark fiber product to market in collaboration with Ciena, allowing partners, service providers, data centers and enterprises across healthcare, higher education and beyond to control their network operations and cost and cater to increasing network demands,” notes Marc Dyman, Chief Revenue Officer of FiberLight. “We’re excited to see this benefit our partners by addressing their customers’ concerns on how to keep pace with the need for scale and control with mission-critical fiber and network management capabilities that empower digital transformation in a data-intensive era.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with FiberLight to offer their Managed Dark Fiber Network solution,” comments Tim Wise, Chief Executive Officer of Advocate, the premier technology business management (TBM) services company. “For businesses needing to replace outdated legacy networks, this is a great solution that offers the ability to grow into full dark fiber ownership should the business decide to manage on their own in the future. We see this as particularly attractive to our healthcare industry clients, and with FiberLight’s extensive network in Texas, as well as Tampa, Atlanta and the DC Metro areas, we’re well-positioned to continue accelerating IT business value through comprehensive TBM services.”
