Colocation Provider InfoRelay Completes Dark Fiber Expansion in Los Angeles and Northern Virginia

InfoRelay, a colocation provider with 15 facilities across the USA, has announced the completion of several DWDM upgrades to its private dark fiber rings (networks) in the markets of Los Angeles, California and Reston, Virginia. The dark fiber network improvements include new 10 Gigabit Ethernet waves on its Los Angeles and Northern Virginia networks.

The recent capacity increases on InfoRelay‘s dark fiber networks through Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology allow colocation customers to send and receive data from other network providers on fully-private fiber connections. Customers that require connectivity to Internet service providers (ISP) that are not present in that customer’s primary data center can access those ISPs in other regional data centers over the dark fiber provided by InfoRelay.

100 Gigabit connections

The dark fiber network improvements include ten new 10 Gigabit Ethernet waves on the Los Angeles network, as well as several more 10 Gigabit Ethernet Waves on the Northern Virginia network.

The upgrade of InfoRelay’s dark fiber networks allows its colocation customers to connect server and network gear directly to network providers at other regional data center locations on fully-private, physical fiber lines using 100 Megabit, 1 Gigabit, 10 Gigabit 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit connections. This series of improvements is part of a larger infrastructure project InfoRelay began in August of 2013, that will run throughout 2014.
