Southern Telecom’s strategic partnership with SEIMITSU will offer colocation and a new fiber route; creating diversity to enhance the customer network

Southern Telecom, Inc. has partnered with SEIMITSU Business Technology Solutions to provide a major multinational technology company with new fiber connections and colocation in central Georgia. The technology company is utilizing STI’s fiber to connect and expand its own broadband network and support a greater customer experience across the Southeast US region. The joint fiber connection provides a lateral at each end of the route and offers one colocation space for the new customer.

Seimitsu has a long and proven track record in designing and building networks and has partnered with STI to offer a unique, diverse and cost-effective solution for providing an optimal end-to-end solution for STI’s end users.

The new fiber build is part of STI’s construction and evaluation of several new routes around the Southeast, as well as the company’s ongoing effort to support route diversity and access to numerous key colocation sites in Atlanta. Southern Telecom markets more than 2,600 route miles in the Southeast anchored by a robust conduit and dark fiber metro network throughout Atlanta.

“STI’s partnership with Seimitsu, one of our most valued infrastructure partners, to serve our customer is a huge step forward in our ongoing network fiber strategy to enhance our current routes and introduce new ones,” comments Barry Navarre, Business Development Manager for STI. “The new fiber route and colocation space will ensure faster connections in the Southeast for this major customer, and the thousands of customers it serves in the area.”

“We are honored to work with STI on this critical fiber optic build and support the enhancement of their network,” states Seimitsu “Sam” Cook, President of Seimitsu. “Owning a small metro network in Savannah, Ga., Seimitsu successfully provided STI with one of the laterals it needed to complete the connection without construction.”
