Integra Telecom, Inc. has added dark fiber to its roster of networking, communications, and technology offerings. Integra expects the dark fiber product will prove popular for network expansion, mobile backhaul, and on-net connectivity among wholesale customers as well as with large enterprises.

The network services provider says its new dark fiber product can support up to 400 Gbps of capacity per fiber pair across Integra's fiber-optic network. The network includes more than 150,000 fiber miles, with metro services available in Boise, Portland, Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Spokane. Integra's dark fiber offering will also be available within the company's 5,000-mile long-haul fiber network.

Integra will offer a variety of lease options including capital lease and Indefeasible Rights of Use (IRU). A lease-to-own option also will be offered “on an individual case basis,” Integra says.

"As business requirements for high-bandwidth applications continue to increase, both carrier and enterprise customers are evaluating alternatives for cost-effective, highly scalable network data transport," said Joe Harding, senior vice president of marketing at Integra. "Integra's dark fiber leverages the value of our network assets, meeting this demand with easy-to-manage, high bandwidth sold through flexible bundles, lease options, or IRU depending on customer needs."
