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).

FiberLight is one of the first fiber optic carriers offering services to and from Provision’s Dallas data center. FiberLight will help tenants secure high-bandwidth connectivity to its dense optical network, enabling transport between the data center into critical business locations and then back to the internet through additional peering points and Points of Presence (PoPs).

The construction required for this project will tie seamlessly into FiberLight’s existing multi-state metro footprints on its recently announced 100-Gigabit long-haul network.

“Our new data center in the heart of Dallas’ CBD offers unrivaled available square footage and power redundancy, plus the experience and expertise that comes from our leadership team’s combined 80 years in the data center and transport industries,” said Clay Hill, Provision’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “By providing custom-engineered colocation design alongside in-demand storage and managed cloud solutions, Provision is poised to offer businesses in North Texas robust and reliable data center offerings with convenience.”

FiberLight Chief Executive Officer Jim Lynch also commented on the announcement.

“FiberLight has invested heavily in strengthening our fiber-rich network in Texas, which demonstrates our commitment to supporting the unmatched growth of its technology markets and overall economy,” Lynch stated. “FiberLight and Provision are similarly aligned with respect to our vision to provide state-of-the-art infrastructure for innovative organizations that are creating dynamic technological change both within Texas and across the nation. We’re excited for the opportunities this partnership presents.”
