July 27th, 2009 By: Rich Miller
FiberLight has completed the extension of its optical network to Terremark’s NAP of the Capital Region (NCR) data center in Culpeper, Virginia, providing access to an additional nine carrier networks, the companies said today. Terremark’s NCR now offers access to a total of 15 leading carrier networks.
“The completion of our optical network into Terremark’s NAP of the Capital Region represents a significant step for both companies,” said Michael P. Miller, CEO and Founder of FiberLight. “Connecting the NCR to Northern Virginia, allows us to extend our footprint while providing Terremark’s customers the benefits of FiberLight’s robust core metro network and our 24/7 network monitoring capabilities to proactively address any issues.”
Terremark’s NAP of the Capital Region opened in June 2008 with the completion of the first 50,000-square-foot datacenter on a 30-acre campus designed to accommodate up to five data centers. Terremark began construction of a second facility in January.
“The NAP of the Capital Region has experienced outstanding success, and we believe the additional connectivity offered at the facility will generate increased interest in the full suite of services Terremark offers there,” said Manuel D. Medina, Terremark’s Chairman and CEO.
