Resurgence Infrastructure Holdings, LLC says it has acquired fiber-optic network service provider Strome Networks, LLC, to enable the company to own and operate a contiguous dark fiber network in Florida that now extends into Atlanta, GA. Strome Networks will operate under the new trade names “Resurgence” and “Resurgence Infrastructure Group” (ResurgenceIG). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition gives ResurgenceIG Florida dark fiber infrastructure that includes a link between Miami and Jacksonville with 120,000 optical fiber miles of available capacity, as well as connectivity to Atlanta with approximately 82,000 optical fiber miles of available capacity. The company plans to use the fiber-optic network infrastructure to offer dark fiber IRUs, dark fiber leasing, lateral construction, and leasing of cabinet space in its data/colocation facilities.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to acquire and build upon the network and colocation assets of Strome Networks,” commented Scott Drake, CEO of ResurgenceIG. “This geographically strategic network is constructed along secure private rights-of-way, interconnected to key data centers in both Florida and Georgia, and includes eleven Type-II data and colocation facilities.”
“Our operating model is based upon improved operating costs along with a fundamental change in direction—we are expanding our product offerings,” added Nick Lenoci, president and COO of ResurgenceIG. “A key growth strategy for us in the near-future is to offer Spectrum leases, also known as Alien Waves, in addition to our existing dark fiber IRUs and leases. We are also exploring a fundamental structural change of our network from a linear architecture to a ring architecture.”
