FirstLight,  in addition to providing fiber-optic data, Internet, data center, cloud and voice services to enterprise and carrier customers throughout the Northeast has now added ‘Managed Edge’ solutions to its roster of offerings.

Connecting nearly 8,000 locations in service with more than 30,000 locations serviceable by a 14,000-route mile network, FirstLight offers a robust suite of advanced telecommunications products featuring a comprehensive portfolio of high bandwidth connectivity solutions to a selection of clientele including national cellular providers and wireline carriers as well as many leading enterprises, spanning high tech manufacturing and research, hospitals and healthcare, banking and financial, secondary education, colleges and universities, and local and state governments.

FirstLight’s Managed Edge enhances the company’s high quality, fiber-based communications services by offering customers:

  • Single solution for connectivity
  • Fully managed devices for a complete end-to-end solution
  • Performance-oriented edge network solutions
  • Deep insight into hardware, software and application performance, inventory management, redundancy, and resiliency

With FirstLight’s Managed Edge Security solution, customers benefit from next-generation firewall services and unified threat mitigation to protect their network, while FirstLight’s Managed Edge Routing solution allows customers to efficiently control Internet usage and manage Wide Area Network (WAN) resources across multiple locations.

“With the adoption of cloud-based applications continuing to increase, FirstLight recognizes the need for network optimization and protection. IT professionals invest time, money and effort trying to keep pace with their organization’s growing need for network resources, leaving little room for business innovation in their budgets or workload,” said Kurt Van Wagenen, President and Chief Executive Officer for FirstLight.  “Enhancing our high quality, fiber-based communications service with the addition of Managed Security and Managed Routing solutions was a natural extension for FirstLight.  With this complete solution, customers can work with one provider, one network and one team for their complete communications needs.”

FirstLight’s Managed Edge solutions incorporate customizable options to suit the network and hardware management needs of organizations of varying sizes, including the option of around-the-clock support.
