Bright Fibre offers the benefits of dark fiber without the associated complications of management, SFN asserts. This opens dark fiber services to a wider range of potential users, including enterprises and similar entities without the internal resources to manage their networks.

"As ongoing demand for international bandwidth continues to increase, growing 45% in 2011, a new wave of companies wish to own their own network infrastructure but lack the resources. Bright Fibre facilitates these organizations to exploit new Internet-based opportunities to manage in-house with greater certainty and massive cost-savings," Diane Hodnett, Sea Fibre Networks' CEO, said.
