Metro Ethernet network supplier FiberLight said it “turned around a customized optical transport solution in record time” for Sago Networks, a Tampa-based Internet solutions company.

In just 24 hours, Atlanta-based FiberLight lit a 10 GHz DWDM network connecting Sago Networks to two Miami data centers: Terremark’s NAP of the Americas and Peak 10.

“I couldn’t find anyone else that could even come close to FiberLight’s delivery time,” said Miller Cooper, founder and CEO of Sago Networks. Added Ben Edmond, FiberLight’s EVP/Sales and Marketing, “One of our key differentiators is our speed to market capability, which enables us to meet challenging timelines that other providers would consider impossible. Because we own our network and are connected to many of Florida’s data centers and carrier hotels, we can offer rapid, customized solutions with enough built-in flexibility to grow with demand.”

According to FiberLight, its 300-mile, multi-ringed South Florida network offers low latency coupled with secure and redundant connectivity to many of South Florida’s data centers, thus enabling Sago Networks to offer rapid service to its military and medical clients.

“Our military customers fight the wars depending on ultimate network reliability, and our hospital radiology specialists need to be able to transfer information rapidly back and forth between facilities,” Cooper added.

FiberLight is continuing to extend its network presence in Florida with the addition of an optical network linking Miami to Kendall, a 32-mile expansion.
