Initial List Will Include 4,500 Buildings in Growing Metros Across the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern Regions of the United States
ATLANTA – October 24, 2016 – FiberLight, LLC, an industry leader in providing high performance fiber optic network solutions, today announces the release of its near-net building list, which identifies 4,500 buildings across its footprint that can be easily lit with FiberLight’s best-in-class data services. The building availability data will be managed and distributed through Connected2Fiber’s Building List Manager application. FiberLight’s Wholesale and Channel divisions will make this list available to current partners immediately and will continue to expand the number of on- and near-net buildings as its metro fiber networks expand.
“As FiberLight has continued to expand our metro fiber networks throughout our territory, we have now established a significant presence in cities and towns in need of high bandwidth broadband services,” states Jim Hintze, FiberLight’s Senior Vice President of Carrier Sales. “We are committed to leveraging our rich fiber assets to allow network service providers to connect into businesses across our footprint at the fastest speeds available in the market, which have been otherwise unavailable over existing copper networks.”
All buildings featured on FiberLight’s near-net list will be available with standard national pricing across bandwidth options from 10-Megabit to 10-Gigabit. Following the initial release, FiberLight will regularly add to the database new locations that fit specific criteria, including proximity to the network, costs related to construction and the presence of multiple tenants located within. These criteria will allow FiberLight to provide cost-efficient connectivity and aggressive installation commitments. Many buildings on the initial near-net list could be turned up in as little as 90 days.
FiberLight chose to partner with Connected2Fiber for this project because the platform allows it and its partners to update and access building specifications and service availability in real-time. The SaaS-based tool also allows FiberLight to custom-tailor details provided for each telecommunications service provider, managed service provider and master agent who receives the list. Through Building List Manager, partners will be able to see critical information about each building, enabling them to make targeted, rather than speculative, requests for proposals.
“The market currently has incredible demand for fiber. It is critical that network owners, such as FiberLight, communicate to the market the buildings available to serve so that customers searching for solutions can leverage that location information,” comments Ben Edmond, Chief Executive Officer of Connected2Fiber. “Too often the industry relies on sending stale spreadsheets, email, PDF maps or KMZ files, which makes it difficult to get into the customer’s buying process. FiberLight has done a tremendous job of building a validated location database to share with partners, prospects and customers.”
FiberLight owns and manages over 1.65 million fiber miles in over 400 cities and towns across the United States. It also maintains over 17,000 backbone access points, 1,700 on-net locations and presence in over 100 data centers across the country.
