Under the arrangement between the two companies, Bytegrid will connect its 214,000 sq. ft. Silver Spring, MD, data center campus to FiberLight’s fiber-optic network. FiberLight’s network connectivity spans 600-plus route miles from Baltimore to Washington, D.C. to central and Northern Virginia passing through thousands of businesses, government facilities, and the region’s data centers.

Bytegrid’s campus consists of two data center facilities (MDC1 and MDC2) encompassing 91,000 sq. ft. of computer room floor and 9 MWs of uninterruptible power capacity. MDC1 is the largest multi-tenant data center in Maryland, offering a high availability solution through a concurrently maintainable and fault-tolerant design.

Customers will be able to choose from a 1G, 10G, or dark fiber services, delivered over a private, low-latency network to the campus. The addition of FiberLight’s broad connectivity creates a offering that many enterprise and government customers will find invaluable as they seek to optimize and expand their mission-critical environments, the companies assert.

“Maryland Connect provides new levels of access for carriers and other data centers as they serve enterprise and government customer needs for data center expansions, new connectivity options from their office or cage to a diverse data center, or in support of data center migrations,” said Don Goodwin, EVP leasing and marketing, Bytegrid.
