Intellifiber reaches connection milestone with U.S. DoD

Intellifiber Networks has made the most out of its Mid-Atlantic location--one that's home to major federal government agencies--by activating its 500th circuit for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

Currently serving more than 150 locations, Intellifiber provides the DoD with circuit speeds that range from as low as DS-3 (45 Mbps) up to 10 Gbps wavelengths.

Traditionally dominated by large carriers, competitive carriers such as Intellifiber have continued to make a name for themselves in the government services arena as alternative network service sources. While not completely an uncommon concept amongst large carriers, one thing that appears to have worked for Intellifiber in gaining the trust of the DoD is network diversity.

To maintain that network diversity, Intellifiber currently has interconnection agreements with a number of data, carrier and hosting facilities in key federal markets including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and of course Washington, DC. In addition, Intellifiber has reach into other key markets such as Norfolk, Richmond, Wilmington, Syracuse, Buffalo and Columbus.
