Dark Fiber

Dark Fiber

Complete Control

As enterprises migrate to the cloud, access to applications across multiple data centers in different locations has become critical. Large organizations require blazingly fast connections without congestion. Dark fiber connections have virtually unlimited scalability, making them a future-proof solution for businesses with large, often sensitive, data requirements such as healthcare, finance, and oil & gas.

What is dark fiber?

Advances in data packaging, and preventative overestimation during installation, resulted in unused extraneous space on some fiber optic networks. Dark fiber, or unlit fiber, is simply unused optical fiber already laid. While it is not transmitting any light pulses, we refer to it as "dark." We lease out this dark fiber to create many different types of networks. The most common ways to install and set up these networks are point-to-point and point-to-multipoint. Dark fiber networks are separate from the internet and completely under the client's control rather than the network provider.

The development of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) improved the capabilities of dark fiber exponentially. DWDM allows many different data signals to be transmitted simultaneously through the same optical fiber. Data is transmitted on different wavelengths to keep it separate, allowing for significant increases in bandwidth and capacity. Additionally, we can split the single optical cable into multiple virtual fibers. These tremendous technological advances result in robust, secure, high-performance networks with breakneck internet speeds.
