FiberLight brings fiber ring connection to Atlanta Journal-Constitution

In considering a network provider, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution had three common requirements: a dedicated private network connection, 99.999 percent reliability, and sub 2ms latency. And the newspaper company found that FiberLight met those requirements.

By adopting FiberLight's [email protected] service, which leverages a a redundant, dedicated, multi-node ringed platform, the Journal-Constitution will get a full Gbps transport capacity to connect multiple facilities across the Atlanta metro area.

Each location on the private network has been built with full redundancy to support the newspaper company's core infrastructure and high-bandwidth applications. To ensure constant uptime, FiberLight provides 24/7 network monitoring of the fiber and network for stress, laser degradation and power issues, which it claims can speed up response time if a fiber cut or a network outage occurs.
