South Reach Networks unveils wavelength, Ethernet services in Florida

Aug. 31, 2021
The fiber network leverages Infinera’s GX Series Compact Modular Platform to enable low-latency services at transmission rates up to 400 Gbps.

Florida-based South Reach Networks (SRN) is now offering wavelength and Ethernet services on a new fiber-optic network in the U.S. Southeast built on equipment from Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), the two companies say. SRN will target data centers, service providers, and enterprises as its main customers for the services.

The new route is more than 400 miles long and runs along the coast of Florida. The fiber network leverages Infinera’s GX Series Compact Modular Platform to enable low-latency services at transmission rates up to 400 Gbps.

“South Reach Networks is one of the first to offer such robust options for lit services from Miami to Jacksonville, and to provide new diverse fiber services to the growing communities in the Central East Coast that historically had limited fiber options for these types of services,” explained Kevin Rocks, executive vice president, sales and marketing for SRN. “Deploying industry-leading solutions like Infinera’s GX G30 platform across our network infrastructure enables us to offer customers 10G, 100G, and 400G Ethernet and wavelength services today while also positioning our network to seamlessly expand to 800G in the future.”

“Infinera’s GX G30 platform is an ideal solution for innovative network operators to quickly, easily, and cost-effectively launch the latest high-speed services to a diverse set of customers,” added Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Infinera. “Infinera is delighted to partner with South Reach Networks to bring these types of differentiated services to a broader set of customers.”
