Case Study from FiberLight Explores a Use Case for Dark Fiber as Core Support for Digital Government Initiatives and Community Services

ATLANTA – SEPTEMBER 3, 2020 – FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of construction experience building mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, recently released a case study outlining its collaboration with the City of Roswell, Georgia. The release of this success story enables readers to understand the benefits of dark fiber for data center connectivity, in turn enabling better municipal application performance, enhanced administrative capabilities and more for local government.

The City of Roswell, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta and the state’s eighth-largest city, offers digital municipal and administrative services as an important pillar of its community. Among these online residential services are the ability to take on-the-go advantage of crime reporting, emergency response and public safety, parks and recreation applications, mobile utility billing and more.

The demands on the city’s network grew as use of these services expanded, and Roswell soon needed to augment its fiber infrastructure and quickly deploy a network that would enable real-time and truly always-on user access. The city’s network also needed geographic redundancy and failover capabilities, which would allow critical data across city departments to be backed up at more than one data center location.

To solve capacity, availability and reliability challenges, FiberLight, with help from SereneIT, a next-generation engineering IT firm quickly established a 400GB bandwidth connection to a highly secure and geographically advantageous Ascent, LLC data center facility near Atlanta. This environment offered operational autonomy, efficiency and control with future-proof scalability and security.

This expanded dark fiber infrastructure, delivering high-capacity connectivity to a secure and scalable data center environment, empowers the City of Roswell to quickly enjoy an always-on environment. This network solution, deployed on a short timeline, enabled the city to leverage greater control, provision more reliable community services and support its long-term expansion with renewed agility and security.
