      Dark Fiber
      Fiber optic cable is composed of super thin glass cables that are capable of transmitting data as bursts of light. When a company leases a dark fiber strand, it has access to the fiber optic strand and conduit infrastructure, but not the equipment required to light the fiber and transmit data. This allows a company complete flexibility to procure and leverage whatever equipment is necessary to meet their individual transport needs.

       

      Dark fiber connections are commonly purchased or leased by enterprise businesses that wish to deploy and manage their own fiber lines as well as businesses that wish to invest up-front in future bandwidth capacity. Additionally, many companies purchase long-term Indefeasible Right of Use (IRU) contracts which allow them to consider their fiber lines as a physical business asset. For additional questions, please contact sales@highspeedroanoke.net

      Connect your Facility
      The RVBA Fiber network currently forms a ring around the Roanoke Valley, and businesses gain access by connecting their facility to the ring with a “Direct to Door” connection. Determine the best way to connect by scheduling a site survey and facility assessment with the RVBA at sales@highspeedroanoke.net.

      The RVBA can help you select the service that best fits your business.

      Step 3
