Allied Fiber will connect the 700-mile dark fiber route it is building from Miami to Atlanta to Colo Atl, the network-neutral colocation, data center, and interconnection services company with a facility at 55 Marietta Street in Atlanta.

Besides its location, Colo Atl says it can offer longtime partner Allied Fiber SSAE 16 certified colocation, N+1 redundancy, and access to multiple Tier 1 network operators. Colo Atl also hosts the Georgia Technology Center (GTC), a test bed and live production facility for network communications equipment, and the Southeast Network Access Point (SNAP). SNAP provides Internet exchange (IX) services, including software-defined networking (SDN) peering, testing, and implementation.

"Colo Atl offers us a number of critical amenities, including convenient and affordable interconnection options via a first-class carrier-neutral colocation facility in downtown Atlanta," explains Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber. "Additionally, the collaboration opportunities and innovative spirit of the GTC and SNAP align perfectly with our march to become the first national, open-access, integrated network-neutral colocation and dark fiber superstructure in the United States. The arrangement is integral to the Jacksonville to Atlanta segment of our Southeast Route." (See "Allied Fiber opens southeast fiber-optic network route.")
