FiberLight recently announced new standard pricing for dark fiber on its newly constructed and diverse fiber ring connecting Washington D.C. and Ashburn, VA—also known as ‘data center alley’. This fiber ring densification throughout Ashburn is enabling data center access to flexible and competitively priced dark fiber solutions through FiberLight’s private dark-fiber network. The expansion, originally announced in January 2018, provides local companies including healthcare, government organizations, and educational institutions the ability to future-proof their network and data center operations with low latency, scalable, and virtually unlimited bandwidth. Dark fiber offers flexible, owner-managed options for companies that want privacy as well as security in their network infrastructure.
FiberLight’s new standard pricing is offered for up to three pairs of fiber and is available to over 750 on-net locations throughout Ashburn. The 1728-count fiber, known as ultra-high-fiber-count (UHFC), built in Ashburn’s ring six is designed specifically for data center applications to allow high fiber density and mass fusion splicing, supporting increased transmission capacity requirements for cloud computing.
