AUGUST 27, 2009 -- Pryme Technologies has selected FiberLight LLC (search Lightwave for FiberLight), an optical network services provider, to provide the network backbone for high-bandwidth transport from Pryme's new Tier III 72,000-sq-ft colocation facility in Ashburn, VA, to FiberLight's Ashburn point of presence (POP) at Equinix.
"This data center has been specifically designed to meet customer needs for diversity, flexibility, and service, without investing additional capital," said Bart Rogers, Pryme Technologies' vice president of sales and business development. "We feel FiberLight offers secure, reliable, and scalable network solutions our customers require. FiberLight's carrier-neutral status will enable us to serve all customers regardless of specific carrier needs."
The fiber-optic connection to Pryme's data center will also provide Pryme's customers with access options to FiberLight's 400-mile private metro network connecting Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland.
"This partnership opportunity is a win-win for both companies as it allows us to extend our footprint while providing Pryme's customer base with state-of-the-art SONET, Ethernet, wavelengths, IP, and private network solutions in a carrier-neutral environment," said Ben Edmond, FiberLight EVP of sales and marketing. "We maintain multiple operational offices in the greater D.C. market including one in Herndon, Virginia and provide 24-by-7 monitoring through two fully redundant NOCs, which gives Pryme customers added security to transport mission-critical data for data storage and applications."
