Dark fiber refers to unused fiber-optic cable. Often companies lay more lines than necessary to mitigate the cost of doing it repeatedly. The dark strands can be leased to individuals or other companies who want to establish optical connections among their own locations.
If you’re looking for scalable bandwidth and want to manage and control your network, then a dark fiber network might be the solution for you. Dark fiber networks are secure and scalable with high-capacity bandwidth.
You’ll purchase fiber from a ProQuester solution provider, and then light it up with your own network components. You will maintain direct operational control of your network, while leveraging the provider’s metro and long-haul fiber network.
