SEPTEMBER 6, 2007 — American Fiber Systems (AFS) added to its fiber optical metro network in the Salt Lake City region, citing commercial and customer growth in the West Jordan, UT, area. The expansion will connect AFS' existing network to a major wireless provider.

AFS constructed a more than 500-mile fiber ring for high-capacity, high-bandwidth metro service to enterprise and carrier customers to support expansion. The dark fiber network targets customers using more than 10 Mbits of bandwidth, explains Mike D'Angelo, VP of sales and marketing, AFS. The routes needed to be diverse from all other telecom providers for true redundancy and higher reliability, he notes, adding that commercial districts and area data centers are increasing connectivity demands in the region.
