FiberLight’s Miami POP extension deepens Central, South America connectivity options

July 27, 2023
The new route will offer 10G private Ethernet services from Miami’s NAP of the Americas Data Center to over 180 data centers serves as a landing point for Latin America.

FiberLight is giving providers and enterprises a new connectivity option for Central and South America by establishing a Point of Presence (POP) in Miami’s NAP of the Americas. The service provider will deliver up to 10G private Ethernet service from the data center to connect customers from Central and South America to anywhere FiberLight has on-net presence, including 184 data centers across its network.

Located at 50 NE 9th Street in Miami service provider’s Ethernet portfolio and internet services from the Miami NAP of the Americas Data Center will serve as a pivotal landing point to facilitate connectivity between Central and South America and the United States.

The new offering comes at a time when Latin America’s appetite for fiber networks has seen substantial growth. FiberLight’s footprint originating from Miami will deliver high-speed connectivity and enable critical cross-border service across a wide network to facilitate trade. 

Bolstering its footprint in Central and South America has been an ongoing theme for the service provider. FiberLight’s Miami expansion follows the company’s announcement in March that it was partnering with MDC Data Centers in Eagle Pass to deliver strategic cross-border connectivity between the U.S. and Mexico. 

“FiberLight’s POP in the Miami market represents an important expansion of our service offering and delivers 10G private Ethernet services into metro areas across the southwest and Texas at competitive rates,” said Peter Gallagher, Chief Operating Officer of FiberLight. “We’re excited to offer this cost-effective solution to carriers from Central and South America that use Miami as a cross-border data hub and want to extend their reach across FiberLight’s expansive network.”
