RIVERVIEW — Light Source Communications, a Riverview-based provider of dark fiber communications infrastructure in the United States, announced a new intercity dark fiber route in Georgia.
Scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2017, the 200-mile route will connect Atlanta and Augusta and pass through Athens.
Construction on the new route is expected to be completed in 2018 and will include eight neutral colocation sites to provide space and power. Following completion, LSC will have completed long haul dark fiber available in Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma and now Georgia.
The route enables unlimited high quality bandwidth and communication infrastructure services with dedicated high-capacity, low-latency dark fiber optic cable for customers with critical applications and data centers in these markets. The network will be underground, contain multiple conduits, and will be diverse from other existing routes.
The dark fiber optical network is the answer to the limited, unsecured bandwidth issues businesses face today. Reducing latency, the time delay in transmission of data, has also become a mandate for companies that want to remain competitive, with demands increasing among end users for faster access to data and content.
