FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ashburn, VA – Today, USA FIBER which engineers, builds, and operates mission critical underground conduit and dark fiber networks for clients, jointly announced with Sabey Data Centers, a privately held real estate development and investment company specializing in mission critical data center space, that USA FIBER’s Ashburn Ring would be made available within Sabey’s new state of the art, 900,000-square-foot data center campus now under construction called SDC Ashburn.
“Not only is USA FIBER bringing the Ashburn Ring directly to the Sabey Data Center, we are making our Peering Ring available, which enables leading companies to connect between any of the Ashburn data centers across their own dedicated buffer tube. Customers can pick and choose which locations to interconnect, and have the flexibility to move without penalty. This scale and architecture allows for simple, cost effective and secure connectivity across the key service providers located in the market, including IP services, CDN, and Cloud infrastructure,” said John Schmitt, Chief Revenue Officer.
Rob Rockwood, Senior Vice President, Eastern Region, Sabey Data Centers, said, “Getting access to competitive fiber is one of the most important aspects of our data center infrastructure offering. In USA FIBER, we found an infrastructure owner that is willing to provide open access infrastructure on our clients’ terms. Flexible, scalable and engineered for performance.”
Daniel Meltzer, Sabey Data Centers Vice President of Sales & Leasing, said, “USA Fiber’s Ashburn Ring links the key data centers, cloud computing platforms and high technology companies in the market. Their Ashburn Express route will connect Ashburn directly with Baltimore, MD, bypassing Washington, D.C. and its inherent latency and network risks. At present, all other major carriers’ routes cross into Washington, D.C. USA FIBER will see significant customer adoption on this unique route given the requirements for performance, diversity and uptime being pushed in the market by government, enterprise and service providers.”
At SDC Ashburn, carriers will use three separate and discrete paths from the street; ensuring customers ultimate protection. Within the data center there will be two separate communications equipment rooms and two separate meet me rooms for carrier interconnectivity.
USA FIBER’s dark fiber service is more than 10 times larger than most of the existing networks in service in Ashburn, which average around 432 fibers. At present in Ashburn, a full buffer tube for dark fiber is rarely available, and enabling customers with the flexibility of a cross connect to move when and where they want is almost unheard of. USA FIBER, in partnership with Sabey Data Centers and Integrate.Ashburn, is looking to change all that.
