ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 28, 2020--

FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of construction experience building and operating mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, announces that it has completed its high-capacity fiber Texas Express Routes as part of an interstate connectivity superhighway within FiberLight’s existing and expansive Texas fiber footprint. The low-latency network now connects Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston (DASH), plus Corpus Christi, Laredo and McAllen, and includes brand new, diverse fiber routes to the Mexican border.

The new Texas Express Route network leverages the latest in Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) systems, delivering robust bandwidth with flex-grid, disaggregation, colorless and directionless optical technologies. When combined, these technologies ensure support for all current and future Nx100G modulations. Deploying this network architecture allows FiberLight to meet the industry’s high capacity fiber demands with a more predictable, flexible, efficient and scalable methodology.

Moving to this new Texas Express Route network enables network operators, enterprises, wireless operators, managed service providers and international carriers to quickly deploy connectivity to commercial, data center, and cloud on-ramp locations as well as IP peering sites throughout Texas with competitive, flat-rate pricing. Furthermore, all locations are available on a 25-day installation interval, and some locations on the routes offer 14-day intervals for customers that require even faster turnup.

“This deployment offers a number of important benefits to customers. If an enterprise in the Austin metro needs to reach its data centers in Dallas and San Antonio, FiberLight can now transport the traffic more directly between locations on the Texas Express Routes with faster speeds, better performance and more cost savings,” comments Marc Dyman, Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer for FiberLight. “For enterprises with locations outside of the major hubs, FiberLight can now add secondary locations with aggressive high-capacity pricing, extending the advantage of these express routes further into rural regions. We’re excited to see this new development support our customers and their digital demands.”

FiberLight’s Texas network leverages more than 10,000 route miles and 71 on-net data centers connected with newly constructed fiber. This allows customers to more reliably receive their full 10G or 100G throughput when compared to legacy networks, which often can’t support the full bandwidth.

The new 10G and 100G shortened interval, high-performing Express Route capabilities are available at the following 11 data center locations:

  • 1950 N Stemmons, Dallas
  • 7100 Metropolis, Austin
  • 4100 School Smith Rd, Austin
  • 323 Broadway, San Antonio
  • 5170 Westway Park, Houston
  • 660 Greens Parkway, Houston
  • 606 N. Carancahua St, Corpus Christi
  • 520 Matamoros, Laredo
  • 200 S 10 th St, McAllen
  • 110 N Main, Bryan
  • 1824 E Loop 340, Waco
