Allied Fiber Launches New Network-Neutral Fiber Segment

NEW YORK, NY – Allied Fiber, LLC, a builder and operator of network-neutral, integrated dark fiber, colocation and interconnection systems, announced that it has begun construction on the Miami to Atlanta segment of its planned nationwide network system. Beginning in Florida, the Miami to Jacksonville segment of this route will continue north to Valdosta, Ga. where it will connect with 150 miles of Allied Fiber’s fiber optic system that was completed in February of 2012. The route will then continue on to Atlanta.

The exponential growth of mobile, wireless and cloud application traffic means that providers can no longer be supported by the legacy backhaul network infrastructure. Allied Fiber is addressing those needs by providing access to new dark fiber and colocation facilities on a network-neutral, open-access basis. The end user for these physical-layer services includes submarine cable systems, large wireline and wireless carriers and network operators, private enterprises, cooperatives, cable television companies and data center operators.

“Every element of Allied Fiber’s unique system design is being deployed and utilized in this segment, which also is expected to drive economic growth, productivity gains and jobs for the counties and states that we pass through,” states Hunter Newby , CEO and founder of Allied Fiber.

Multi-duct Design
Allied Fiber’s Miami to Atlanta segment will comprise 754 route miles, with Jacksonville to Atlanta accounting for 360 of those route miles. The route will initially utilize a 528-count fiber cable from Miami to Jacksonville and a 216-count fiber cable from Jacksonville to Atlanta. Allied Fiber’s route includes a multi-duct design that ultimately will allow for intermediate access to the long-haul fiber duct through a parallel short-haul fiber duct all along the entire route.

Along with intercepting at critical sub-sea cables and data centers, Allied Fiber will have a total of 11 colocation facilities in this segment of the route. There will be six colocation facilities between Miami and Jacksonville and five more between Jacksonville and Atlanta. The Miami to Atlanta route is expected to be complete by the end of 2013.
