Metro Bytes: Zayo, Integra, FiberLight

August 12th, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

Here’s a quick review of some metro network news from the end of last week that I didn’t get to:

Up in Seattle, Zayo has sold some conduit. Gigabit Squared is making the investment as part of its FTTP project in partnership with the University of Washington. They’ll be combining it with fiber they’ll be leasing from the city itself to help kickstart the infrastructure.  Zayo has been rather quiet lately, that can’t last forever…

Integra has been busy up in Montana this summer. They have now moved to connect Billings and Bozeman to their regional fiber network, bringing their full suite of services to bear on the two metro areas. In Billings, that means reaching out toward nearly 100 business locations.

And down in Texas, FiberLight says it has turned up its first 100Gbps link, hooking up the neighboring cities of Dallas and Fort Worth. They’re still plowing through that 8,000 route mile regional and metro buildout throughout Texas they’ve been working on.  The DWDM gear in this case comes from Fujitsu.
