What is Dark Fiber?

Dark Fiber refers to fiber optic strands that are not in use. The name references the lack of data being sent in the form of light pulses through the cables, leaving them “dark.” Customers leasing unlit fiber optic strands take full ownership of the network’s maintenance and operation and can customize speeds and capacity to fit specific needs.

That's how much downtime can cost an organization per MINUTE.

Work with a managed network service provider to lease dark fiber and increase security and reliability, while reducing costs for your organization.
