In an effort to improve their asset visualization and management capabilities, network operators are increasingly seeking new technologies to replace legacy tools like spreadsheets. New developments in market acceleration platforms allow operators to avoid information silos and streamline network asset management, making it easier to meet customer needs.
In today’s fast-paced digital environment, high-volume data and applications must flow seamlessly and securely between global financial markets, media hubs, data centers and service provider networks. Optical transport — with its highly scalable bandwidth and low latency connectivity — is a critical enabling element.
Businesses can obtain optical transport services by working with companies like GTT Communications, Inc., a leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients. GTT recently launched its new Optical Transport service, leveraging the company’s subsea and terrestrial fiber-optic network that is optimized for latency performance.
Demand has been growing in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area for diverse, carrier-class fiber optic networking solutions.
Now, more options will be available thanks to a new partnership between FiberLight, LLC and Provision Data Services, a Dallas-based Tier 3 data center services provider. FiberLight plans to construct dual entrances into Provision’s downtown Dallas data center, providing local and regional companies direct access to a combination of high quality fiber optic networking solutions as well as scalable colocation and interconnection services through Provision.
The 137,000 square-foot data center, located at 2020 Live Oak Street, offers 14 MW capacity right in the heart of Dallas’s Central Business District (CBD).

Right now there is massive demand for fiber optic connectivity among businesses. The challenge, however, is discovering customers who need it and connecting with them.
This process just got a lot easier, thanks to FiberLight, LLC, an industry leader for high performance fiber optic network solutions. Just recently, FiberLight released a near-net building list which identifies 4,500 buildings across its footprint that can be lit with its best-in-class data services.
What would happen if your business were to suddenly lose connectivity to a major U.S. market? Your entire operation would be disrupted, which would cost a fortune.
For this reason, you need to take point-to-point transport seriously. Your business is only as strong as its connections between U.S. hubs.
On July 26, 2016, FiberLight announced that the company will continue to invest in its Texas-based network.
Moving forward, FiberLight will provide low-latency transport to growing rural communities across Texas. The expansion will establish additional low-latency connectivity between its Dallas-Austin-San Antonio-Houston (DASH) footprint, and areas across the western part of its network including Amarillo, Abilene, Midland, Lubbock, Odessa, San Angelo and surrounding areas.
In the world of connectivity, an $80 billion-plus U.S. and $370 billion-plus global market, location matters. Across the nation, more than 8.3 million non-residential buildings exist, locations that increasingly need more connectivity and want fiber for that increased connectivity requirement.
