Allied Fiber was the first open-access, integrated, network-neutral colocation and dark fiber superstructure provider in the United States with a national plan. Allied Fiber provided next generation long haul and short haul fiber optic solutions with integrated neutral colocation services for domestic and global network operators. Allied Fiber was on track to meet the demands for access to neutral colocation and dark fiber services throughout the continental United States as it was building a ring around the country connecting the submarine cable landing regions and facilitating open-access interconnection nationally.
Allied Fiber provided dark fiber, space and power within its own physical locations where neutral interconnection is fostered and facilitated between all network operators
Long haul typically relates to fiber that runs between major city pairs. Allied Fiber offered long term, long haul routes to clients via three primary options: 20 Year IRU, Lease-to-IRU and Monthly Lease.
Allied Fiber's short haul routes were designed to be accessed through handholes along the route which are spaced every 3-5k feet, depending on the Right of Way, for the purpose of providing fiber splice points for lateral connections to and from the Allied Fiber route.
Allied Fiber designed its own, unique modular, pre-cast concrete and steel buildings and placed them approximately every 60-miles along the route for the purpose of providing a secure, robust environment within which its customers colocated their optical amplification, regeneration and core transport equipment.
The location where a submarine cable transitions from the subsea to terrestrial fiber. The Allied Fiber system was designed to link the international submarine cable landing regions within the United States.
Mobile operators and, or the wireless backhaul providers used the Allied Fiber handholes to create lateral extensions from the Allied Fiber system to towers all along the route.
Allied Fiber built its long haul dark fiber route to link the neutral data centers and carrier hotels in the major cities.
Allied Fiber provided direct, physical layer access points for regional dark fiber and high capacity transport networks connecting to educational and government buildings.
Allied Fiber provided direct, physical layer access points for regional dark fiber and high capacity transport networks connecting to enterprises.
Any modular, or container data center could be directly connected to the Allied Fiber system anywhere along the route through the Allied Fiber handholes. This allowed for the physical distribution of cloud computing and storage of all data types.
The Global Broadband Economy in the U.S. remains underdeveloped and operationally inefficient relative to its potential, it necessity and as compared to many other countries in the world. The root of the issue is a lack of neutral dark fiber on a national platform which creates a situation where ever-increasing demand for mobile, video and cloud computing goes un-met.
The positive impact to GDP through investment in neutral dark fiber and colocation infrastructure. On a national and local level, governments and economies throughout the US will operate more efficiently. Consumer spending will be stimulated as a result of improved connectivity and better access to broadband.
Allied Fiber creates mutually beneficial relationships with multiple industry segments.
Allied Fiber created the Technology Showcase within its colocation facilities along the route to allow hardware vendors to highlight their latest and greatest in optical networking. This environment provides network operators an opportunity to be exposed to a live laboratory marketplace which brings together one of the main ingredients for network development already deployed on a long haul dark fiber route.Learn More
