DukeNet Communications has finished expanding a big part of its fiber network.
The company, which provides high-bandwidth connectivity for enterprises, data centers and carriers in the Southeast through channel partners, now reaches markets in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia. The specific cities include Birmingham and Huntsville, Ala.; Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville, Tenn.; Athens and Atlanta, Ga.; and Richmond, Va.
DukeNet soon will offer service in Ashburn, Va., as well. That capability will allow the company to interconnect from its regional markets into large Internet hubs, DukeNet said.
DukeNet said it built its own greenfield dense wavelength division multiplexing infrastructure while also connecting cell towers with long-haul and metro fiber.
“Both our carrier and enterprise customers alike will benefit from an expanded footprint and the ability to interconnect at more of the industry’s critical data centers and cell towers," said Mike Prendergast, senior vice president of sales and marketing for DukeNet. “Our network becomes more valuable with the addition of more segments and endpoints, which is something that will also positively impact our channel program."
