FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of construction experience building mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, recently announced that it is offering a Managed Dark Fiber Network (MDFN) solution. This solution meets the needs of enterprises whose applications and business operations are expanding at unprecedented rates, requiring levels of dynamic capacity, security and cost efficiency that cannot be achieved through lit solutions only. 

Dark fiber adds control and cost-efficacy by allowing enterprises to adjust service independent of a provider and delivering virtually unlimited bandwidth with high levels of flexibility and security for as-needed network adjustments. 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. However, many may not have the in-house expertise or available capital that can be needed to buy equipment and properly run a dark fiber network.
