Delivery of Wavelength Services up to 400 Gbps to Globalinx offers pivotal access point in fast-growth Hampton Roads, VA region

Atlanta, GA, May 15, 2024 –  FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of experience designing, building, and operating mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, today announced the expansion of its service offering with a Point of Presence (POP) at the Globalinx data center and cable landing station in Virginia Beach, Virginia. FiberLight will deliver up to one terabit private ethernet service from the data center and subsea landing station to connect anywhere FiberLight has on-net presence, including more than 200 data centers across FiberLight’s network.

FiberLight’s lit fiber, accessible from the Globalinx Data Center Campus in Virginia Beach, will serve as a key landing point, ensuring seamless connectivity between subsea and terrestrial fiber networks. Located in the Hampton Roads area, home to the world’s largest Navy base and the Port of Virginia, the region is evolving into a dynamic tech hub with an IT sector spanning logistics, manufacturing and cybersecurity. FiberLight’s POP will deliver secure, high-speed connectivity across its expansive network, catalyzing business expansion.

“Gaining a foothold in this market has been a long-held goal for FiberLight. Through our partnership with Globalinx, we’re expanding our reach and delivering fast, secure, and robust infrastructure wherever our clients seek connectivity,” said Ron Kormos, FiberLight’s Chief Strategy Officer. “There’s a large ecosystem of business that flows through this region – from Central and South America to Europe – and we’re well positioned to pick up that traffic and deliver low latency data transport solutions. From this pivotal POP in Virginia Beach, we can unlock multiple avenues for growth and meet the diverse networking needs of our clients.”

Globalinx Data Centers is a 2N+1 carrier-neutral multi-megawatt data center campus, developed to facilitate direct connectivity between subsea fiber and terrestrial fiber systems. As subsea cable tenants transition to terrestrial networks within the Globalinx facility, FiberLight is positioned to deliver fast and secure data transport with speeds of up to 400 gigabits.  

“FiberLight has earned a reputation for excellence in the industry, and we’re excited to work together to enhance and broaden connectivity options,” said Greg Twitt, Founder and President of Globalinx. “While we maintain our carrier neutrality, FiberLight’s proven reliability, coupled with their history of successful partnerships with data centers, underscores their expertise and trustworthiness. We’re looking forward to a long-term partnership with FiberLight to meet the dynamic needs of our clients and deliver future-forward technology.”

FiberLight’s Virginia Beach expansion follows the company’s recent announcement that it has launched new, diverse pathways from Dallas to central Mexico, and demonstrates the company’s continued growth.

“We’ve long recognized the potential of the Virginia Beach area, situated within the vibrant landscape of Hampton Roads,” said Bill Major, FiberLight’s CEO. “With sectors such as education, healthcare, and DOD showing sustained growth, this region offers substantial opportunities for FiberLight’s expansion. We’re excited to expand connectivity options for our clients while also advancing our presence and pursuing new avenues for long-term development.”
