A Robust, Resilient Network Paves the Way for Future Growth

With expanded infrastructure delivering high-capacity connectivity to a secure and scalable data center environment, the City of Roswell could quickly enjoy the always-on environment it needed to support its citizens and the services they depend on. This dark fiber network solution, deployed on a short timeline, enabled the city to leverage greater control, provision more reliable services for the community and support future expansion with added agility and security.


To support residents’ next-generation capabilities and provide heightened network performance, bandwidth, speed, redundancy and security, Roswell once again chose FiberLight to design and deploy an additional dark fiber ring. Having served as a dark fiber provider for elements of the community’s network since 2006, the city turned to FiberLight due to the company’s familiarity with the area’s network, history of ongoing support and close partnership, and ability to provide the ideal network solution with its presence in an adjacent data center.

We know that dealing with fiber and putting together a circuit takes time and planning, and we were really appreciative of FiberLight understanding our urgency on this need, valuing us as a customer and taking the time to really work with us and make it happen.

As demands on the city’s network grew parallel to its range of digital service offerings, the City of Roswell found that it needed to augment its fiber infrastructure and quickly deploy a network that would enable real-time and truly always-on user access. The city required a network that would empower geographic redundancy and failover capabilities, allowing critical data across the many city departments to be backed up at an additional data center location aside from the city’s primary on-premises facility.

Over time, the Roswell community has adopted and integrated an increasingly sophisticated digital environment, leading to growing network requirements as users interact with and employ a growing repertoire of mobile capabilities. Subsequently, Roswell found itself in need of greater storage capability, better connectivity to its server environment and overall augmented network performance to support its various mission-critical requirements.
