Light Source Signs With Major Global Hyperscaler As Part of Phoenix Dark Fiber Project

Light Source Communications is moving forward with a new dark fiber route in the Phoenix, Ariz., metro area after securing a major global hyperscaler as its anchor tenant.

Once complete, the 140-mile, three-ring route will serve as a critical link for the Phoenix metro area, home to over 70 planned and existing data centers. In addition to data centers, this project will encompass nine cities and metro area universities, delivering an exceptionally high fiber count and conduit system in one of the largest, fastest growing markets in the country.

To complete the route build, Light Source, a leading provider of secure, scalable, reliable connectivity on state-of-the-art dark fiber networks, teamed up with engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) provider Future Infrastructure LLC, a division of Primoris Services Corporation, a leading specialty contractor in North America.

“This route is vital to meeting the growing demand for connectivity in the area. Phoenix embraces the growth of data centers and connectivity, and it is quickly becoming a premier destination for hyperscalers. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet of Things and other emerging technologies require connections with high levels of capacity and reliability. This route will not only help to meet hyperscalers’ needs but also provide secure, scalable connectivity for enterprise customers in the region.”

Debra Freitas, CEO of Light Source Communications

“We’re proud to partner with Light Source Communications on this impactful project, which will exceed the growing demands for high-capacity, reliable connectivity in the Phoenix area. Our commitment to innovation and excellence is well-aligned with Light Source’s cutting-edge solutions and we look forward to delivering with quality and safety at the forefront.”
