FiberLight, LLC has announced a new partnership with Carrier-1 Data Centers, one of the largest data center facilities in North Texas, to deliver secure, reliable fiber connectivity from Carrier-1’s Dallas data center located at 1515 Round Table to Infomart Dallas, the hub of connectivity for the Southern U.S. and one of the most connected carrier-neutral data centers in the nation. The fiber solution provides Carrier-1 customers another diverse route to the connectivity hub, offering direct access and limitless connectivity options to network, cloud and Internet Service Providers (ISP) residing in the 1.6 million-square-foot facility.
“Redundancy is key in the data center business,” states Trey Berndt, executive vice president, Carrier-1 Data Centers. “Expanding with FiberLight by adding another route to the Dallas Infomart and 100-plus network providers solidifies our commitment to maintaining 100% uptime. FiberLight’s existing infrastructure allows us to easily tie Carrier-1 Data Centers to the hub of nearly all Internet providers in the Dallas market.”
FiberLight’s partnership with Carrier-1 demonstrates its ability to create a customized dark fiber solution for its customers as well as its intrinsic value to the data centers within the markets that it serves and, by extension, their clients in each data center. FiberLight owns and manages over 1.6 million fiber miles in over 44 metro areas across the United States. It also maintains over 17,000 backbone access points, 1,700 on-net locations and presence in nearly 100 data centers across the country. The FiberLight network within the State of Texas spans over 11,000 miles and brings critical, high-bandwidth applications to carrier, enterprise and government customers.
“FiberLight has a very strong and dynamic presence in the Dallas region and our partnership with Carrier-1 reinforces our commitment to expansion in this growing market,” comments Mike Ellison, Regional Vice President of Sales for Texas at FiberLight. “By deploying our fiber solution to connect its Dallas data center to Infomart Dallas, Carrier-1 and its customers gain direct, secure and reliable access to a host of national and international carriers and other service providers that can elevate their competitive edge and align with their business objectives.”
