OCTOBER 16, 2008 -- FiberLight LLC (search for FiberLight), provider of metro optical transport, is partnering with 1Vault Networks to provide optical transport capacity throughout the South Florida market by connecting diversely routed fiber between 1Vault Network's Category 5 Data Center in Fort Lauderdale and global IP provider NTT America.
FiberLight says the agreement provides it with new partnership opportunities in Fort Lauderdale while meeting its core business strategy of supplying metro optical backbone between data centers and high-bandwidth user locations in growing metro markets.
"1Vault's premier carrier-class data center in Fort Lauderdale offers FiberLight a great presence in the tri-county area," notes FiberLight COO Kevin Coyne. "This is a good solution for our customers looking for disaster recovery options in South Florida but north of the downtown Miami area."
1Vault Networks' Data Center in Fort Lauderdale is built to withstand natural disasters, system failures, and human intervention through the construction of a fully redundant infrastructure of generator-backed utility fields, A/C chillers, and raised flooring. The Florida-based company says it selected FiberLight to provide fiber-optic connectivity, as its secure network complements 1Vault's comprehensive plan of business continuity, disaster recovery, and high-speed IP connectivity.
"With its 287-mile diverse and redundant South Florida metro ring infrastructure, 24x7 fiber monitoring capability, and 5 9's reliability SLA, FiberLight gives us the security and redundancy our customers require while eliminating the risk of network downtime," contends Kevin Bly, vice president of business development for 1VaultINetworks. "1Vault Networks' partnership with FiberLight enhances our core network infrastructure and adds another level to the diversity we provide our customer, enabling them to mitigate potential network interruptions."
