Lumos Dark Fiber for Enterprise
NEED: Scalable, Customizable Connectivity between Corporate Sites
As an enterprise grows, its connectivity needs increase and become more complex. The organization’s demand for bandwidth may rise rapidly, a need that must be satisfied quickly to allow the business to continue accelerating. The company might have links to a data center that involve network interfaces not supported by the carriers serving that location. Or the enterprise may have critical applications with strict low-latency requirements.
If an organization has any or all of these needs, they may want a network infrastructure they can directly control and customize to suit their bandwidth, interface, and application requirements.
SOLUTION: Dark Fiber
Lumos Dark Fiber provides fiber-optic connectivity an enterprise can fully manage itself, from equipment selection and deployment, through network monitoring and performance. With this level of control, Dark Fiber gives an enterprise a dedicated network infrastructure they can tailor precisely to their needs.
- Control – Dark Fiber provides the freedom to choose the network equipment and protocols that best meet an enterprise’s specific needs.
- Scalability – With Dark Fiber, network capacity is easily increased as bandwidth requirements grow.
