FiberLight completes 100G Texas Express Routes network

July 28, 2020
Low-latency network now connects the cities of Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston (DASH), plus Corpus Christi, Laredo and McAllen, and includes brand new diverse fiber routes to the Mexican border.

FiberLight announced that it has completed its high-capacity fiber Texas Express Routes network, as part of an interstate connectivity superhighway within the provider’s existing and expansive Texas fiber footprint. The low-latency network now connects the cities of Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston (DASH), plus Corpus Christi, Laredo and McAllen, and includes brand new diverse fiber routes to the Mexican border.

Per a FiberLight statement, "the new Texas Express Routes 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," says the provider.

FiberLight contends that moving to the Texas Express Routes 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.

Further, 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 turn-up.

FiberLight’s Texas network now 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 full 10G or 100G throughput when compared to legacy networks, which often can’t support the full bandwidth.

The provider's 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 10th St, McAllen
  • 110 N Main, Bryan
  • 1824 E Loop 340, Waco

“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,” explains Marc Dyman, executive vice president and chief revenue officer for FiberLight.

Dyman adds, “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.”
