ASHBURN, Va., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- USA FIBER, a company that engineers, builds and operates mission critical dark fiber networks for clients, today announced the completion of the Ashburn Ring conduit system, a 7.2 mile network in the heart of Ashburn's data center community. The multi-conduit system was delivered by the USA FIBER engineering and construction team in a total of 138 days, of which only 75 days were active with construction, not working 63 due to weekends, holidays and weather. The platform will be used to provide dark fiber and conduit services to select customers, and anchor as the key destination of USA FIBER's newest cable system, The Ashburn Express, which is currently under construction directly connecting Ashburn to Baltimore.
USA FIBER has built a strategic core practice focused on engineering, building and managing mission critical fiber infrastructure. Employing the latest technologies, best practices and training, the USA FIBER construction team, led by Chris Pancione, Vice President of Fiber Construction, builds the highest quality systems on-time and on budget.
Members of USA FIBER team consist of outside plant engineers, project managers and construction experts, providing resources capable of dissecting complex fiber requirements, managing contract expectations, fulfilling safety and quality program requirements, and providing subject matter expertise in all areas of outside plant engineering, construction and maintenance.
"Ashburn was a showcase project for USA FIBER. Chris and his teams had to navigate some of the most congested right of way in the world to install our multi conduit package. 75 days of construction from start to finish with a zero defect and zero safety incidents is the work that we have come to expect from our team. The complexity of managing the public safety, engineering requirements and navigating the existing utilities is challenging and we delivered for our customers through that in record time. I could not be more proud of our team," said Judd Carothers, COO & Co-Founder.
USA FIBER's project expertise scales from construction of privately-owned outside plant fiber in large metropolitan areas to the delivery of conduit river crossings, highway or rail road builds and other complex network builds. USA FIBER has the staffed technical resources to oversee the transformation of networks needed driven cloud, video and mobility markets. USA FIBER is vastly experienced at mobilizing and supporting maintenance/repair tasks across large geographies and provide immediate response to network damage, service interruption and natural disasters for commercial and government outside plant networks. The Ashburn Ring project is an ideal testament to the capabilities of the company, and shall prove a key foundation for its next project, the Ashburn Express.
