Colo Atl announced that Allied Fiber has joined their growing list of network operators and service providers. Allied’s partnership with Colo Atl is part of its fiber build across the Southeast, extending 700 miles from Miami, FL to Atlanta, GA. Along with Colo Atl’s strategic Downtown Atlanta location, Allied Fiber joins their long-time partner for its SSAE 16 certified colocation facility, ability to provide N+1 redundancy and access to multiple tier-1 network operators.
The Colo Atl facility is also home to the Georgia Technology Center (GTC), a test bed and live production facility for network communications equipment; and the Southeast Network Access Point (SNAP). SNAP provides next-generation Internet Exchange (IX) solutions, including SDN peering, testing and implementation.
“Colo Atl offers us a number of critical amenities, including convenient and affordable interconnection options via a first-class carrier-neutral colocation facility in downtown Atlanta,” comments Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber. “Additionally, the collaboration opportunities and innovative spirit of the GTC and SNAP align perfectly with our march to become the first national, open-access, integrated network-neutral colocation and dark fiber superstructure in the United States.”
Allied Fiber has a unique business model and network design created to facilitate open-access interconnection. Their three primary components are new, high-count dark fiber cables, handoles for lateral splicing and a fully integrated, network-neutral colocation facility, just like Colo Atl’s.
“We’re happy to have Allied Fiber join our increasing roster of network operators and service providers,” states Tim Kiser, Owner and Founder of Colo Atl. “The facility has greatly expanded in the last year. Our growth is directly attributable to folks like Allied Fiber and their desire to make a meaningful difference on how communications gets done.”
