Allied Fiber creates mutually beneficial relationships with multiple industry segments.

Regional Service Provider (RSP) Program

Allied Fiber’s Regional Service Provider (RSP) Initiative

Allied Fiber’s network-neutral, infrastructure “real estate” enables local government, education, healthcare and enterprise-level organizations throughout Florida and Georgia to reduce their operating expenses while increasing their network capabilities and performance by establishing a network access presence in one, or more of the Allied Fiber colocation facilities.

Allied Fiber’s neutral infrastructure enables regional service providers throughout Florida and Georgia to grow their network footprints and increase their reach in local markets by:

  • Leasing dark fiber along the Allied Fiber backbone
  • Installing their own optical and electrical networking equipment in the Allied Fiber colocation facilities
  • Offering network services directly to and from the facilities
  • Interconnecting with new customers generating revenue without the need for and expense of local access circuits

In order for a RSP to benefit for the program, RSPs are required to:

  • Establish a physical network presence in one, or more of the Allied Fiber Florida and, or Georgia colocation facilities
  • Provide various “lit” and, or “dark” fiber network services to and from the Allied Fiber colocation facilities to organizations in the local communities
  • Participate in the Allied Fiber “Dark Fiber Community” outreach and awareness campaign educating organizations in the local community about the opportunity for RSP transport, transit and peering

hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform

Coriant’s FlexiGrid technology, hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform has been established within Allied Fiber’s technology Showcase to show network operators how the Coriant solution works together with the Allied Fiber infrastructure to enable connections between access networks, including fiber and wireless, through to long-haul carrier, content and enterprise networks through points of interconnection within the Allied Fiber system. Allied Fiber’s Technology Showcase sits within its Southeast Florida segment that covers more than 360 miles throughout the state of Florida and is available to all third-party network operators.

Key Benfits:
  • Reach - 1700 km un-regenerated reach (no OEO conversion) at 1 Tbps per super-channel
  • Capacity - Adapted each of the ten 100G sub-carriers of the 1 Tbps super-channel into 35.5 GHz bandwidth using innovative flexi-grid (Wavelength Selective Switch = WSS) technology at both endpoints. Most 100G systems deployed in the field support individual 100G channels within a 50 GHz fixed bandwidth grid
  • Enhance - improved spectral efficiency at 1700 km reach, which hits the U.S. City-to–city distance sweet spot
