Fibertech Indianapolis network expansion targets new business service opportunities

Fibertech, a fiber-centric alternative service provider operating in the Eastern and Central regions of the U.S., has put the finishing touches on its fiber expansion effort in Indianapolis, Ind.

With the buildout complete, the service provider added over 50 miles of fiber, expanding the total amount of fiber in the area to over 310 route miles.

Pat Dolan, director of Enterprise Sales for Fibertech, said that this latest fiber network initiative "allows us to better serve business customers north of the city."

Having operated in the Indianapolis community for 11 years, the new network will enable a host of vertical market segments, including healthcare, financial, education and government organizations and other medium and large businesses, to get access to optical services, Ethernet, and dark fiber services.

To ensure constant uptime for its customer base, Fibertech builds what it calls diverse route, "open access" networks in a ring configuration.

In Indianapolis, for example, the network has been built with 10 core rings. Off of these core rings, it has created fiber connections to 160 buildings and to various ILEC central offices and high data aggregation points, in addition to major data centers.
