FiberLight takes charge of Miami's financial district with new fiber network

FiberLight has responded to the financial industry's need for low latency services with the completion of a 3.5 mile, 432-count underground fiber network designed to serve Miami's Financial District.

Available to building locations from the Miami River to 15th Street and along both sides of Brickell Avenue (U.S. Route 1) in addition to Brickell Bay Drive, customers will be able to access FiberLight's LightSource product portfolio.

Although a major focus of the new network build is centered on attracting more financial customers, Miami's Financial District also boasts a large concentration of enterprises, government and education institutions, public and private banking institutions and large condominium complexes.

Because the new network connects to FiberLight's South Florida fiber network, customers that do sign for service in the Miami Financial District will be able to get access to low latency routes to over 15 data centers in addition to key undersea cable landing stations and many of the telecom carrier POPs located in the market.

Expanding into Florida's Financial District is just one of many markets where FiberLight has been expanding its presence so it can address multiple vertical market opportunities. From an industry-wide perspective, FiberLight's move in Florida illustrates how fiber-rich service providers are expanding their respective networks to provide services like Ethernet, wavelengths or even dark fiber to very demanding customers like financial institutions where downtime is never an option.
