Data Center Interconnect

Increase efficiency across your network

Data Center Interconnect: Scale your bandwidth and maximize network performance.

Scaling your organization’s bandwidth to ensure your applications are performing optimally isn’t an easy task, especially in today’s bandwidth-intensive environment. Applications are continuing to demand more bandwidth and businesses are transferring massive amounts of data each day. The increase in bandwidth needs requires a solution that will keep your business operations running smoothly. Wavelength services offered by FiberLight can enhance your application performance, decrease latency, and allow you to fully-leverage your bandwidth from 10Gbps up to 100Gbps.

Increase application performance with a better connection to your data centers.

Next-gen, scalable optical transport

With the rise in bandwidth needs driven by 4K/8K streaming video, 5G mobile networks, cloud computing, data backup and replication, and latency-sensitive applications, the need for a high-capacity Layer 1 optical transport network to support future bandwidth growth is critical. Traditional tactics like aggregating multiple 10Gbps are inefficient and costly compared to our wavelength services. Whether you’re increasing workloads to a data center or migrating between two data centers, achieve your business goals faster with Data Center Interconnect from FiberLight.
