JANUARY 14, 2011 -- Fiber-optic network services provider FiberLight, LLC say it will launch a dedicated IP platform for enterprise and government customers in the 21 U.S. markets it serves to meet the growing demand for high performance Internet service. The new service will be made available exclusively to enterprise and government customers and will aim provide customers with a secure alternative for high speed dedicated Internet that offers leading flow control, denial of service mitigation and cost-effective, scalable network architecture.
FiberLight will position the service as a way to reduce the congestion and threats inherent in mingling traffic from web-centric companies and service providers onto a single network “as most ISPs do today,” in the words of a company statement.
The new service offering will leverage Juniper Networks core routing platforms as well as the design and engineering expertise of IBM, a FiberLight partner. FiberLight will offer customers dedicated Internet service at speeds of 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps.
"IP traffic on our network is growing at an astonishing rate, which made it evident that we needed a very high-performance core router platform capable of scaling rapidly to meet the demands of enterprise customers converting from legacy TDM circuits and changing service requirements to more IP enabled applications," said Judd Carothers, FiberLight’s EVP of Operations. "By leveraging IBM’s engineering and design support and Juniper's core routers, we have built an advanced high-capacity network that meets our current and future scalability requirements, while also delivering the flexibility that enables us to rapidly introduce new services."
