Anderson Municipal Light and Power Interconnects with Indiana Fiber Network

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Anderson Municipal Light and Power (AML&P) has established an interconnect relationship with Indiana Fiber Network (IFN), an Indiana statewide network service provider. The two organizations have partnered to provide the Anderson area with expanded fiber optic data service options.

The AML&P affiliation with IFN has worked on both the engineering and marketing sides. “We do not want to compete with private sector providers," said Darren Grile, network supervisor at AML&P. "AML&P did not initially deploy fiber to make money, but rather to provide reliability, security, redundancy and savings for city offices. We have no intention of becoming an internet service provider, but we did want connectivity options for existing and future businesses in Anderson.”

“IFN operates over 4,100 miles of fiber across the state of Indiana, so I have seen my share of fiber plant; Anderson has one of the best fiber infrastructures in the state," said August Zehner, IFN vice president of sales and marketing. "IFN brings carrier neutral fiber connectivity options to businesses via AML&P, that benefits their entire customer base. IFN does not build fiber in their service area. We value our relationship with AML&P and use them exclusively as the local fiber provider in their franchise area. Municipal partners can be a great class of fiber providers for IFN because they have a long-term vested interest in their local community.”
