BALTIMORE, Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- USA FIBER, a company that engineers, builds and operates mission critical dark fiber networks for clients in the telecommunications, Internet, data center, government, research & education and large enterprise space, has today announced an innovative dark fiber lease program for its new Ashburn, VA ring. The lease structure allows for an open dark fiber lease platform that simplifies how service providers exchange data between data centers in the market.
The Ashburn, VA multi-tenant data center market overtook New York City as the world's largest in 2015. This concentration of data center customers, combined with the largest IP peering market in North America creates an ideal place to launch a disruptive distributed dark fiber peering model. USA FIBER's newest offer, Dark Fiber Peer, enables a 1 to many ring drop architecture to access incremental data centers without needing to add additional pairs. "Simple, cost effective and designed to enable a next generation peering architecture with new unlimited bandwidth only constrained by the optics placed on the fibers. Today, we are excited to announce an innovative dark fiber design and pricing model that will enable more service providers to connect with each other and their customers in the Ashburn marketplace," said Ken Goff, CEO of USA FIBER.
"When we approached the market we looked at how we could help the market accelerate the key principals that have made Ashburn so successful. Open architecture, simple interconnection, huge scale, high performance and the ability to enable the core application to scale. Dark Fiber Peer, coupled with our new high count dark fiber platform helps us accomplish that," said Judd Carothers, President of USA FIBER.
The dark fiber peering platform offers clients to connect to up to 35 data centers across a single pair for a flat monthly recurring fee, regardless of how many destinations are enabled on the platform. USA FIBER has built the newest dark fiber platform for the Ashburn, VA market enabling 7 miles of 100% underground, highly scalable fiber optics to serve even the most demanding of applications.
