Allied Fiber’s Miami to Atlanta segment will comprise 754 route miles, with Jacksonville to Atlanta accounting for 360 of those route miles. The route will initially utilize a 528-count fiber cable from Miami to Jacksonville and a 216-count fiber cable from Jacksonville to Atlanta. Allied Fiber’s route includes a multi-duct design that ultimately will allow for intermediate access to the long-haul fiber duct through a parallel short-haul fiber duct all along the entire route.
"Our route will also intercept several sub-sea cable landing points and key data centers along the Florida coast in Jacksonville, Boca Raton and Miami that will meet additional customer needs," states Jason Cohen, President & COO of Allied Fiber
Along with intercepting at critical sub-sea cables and data centers, Allied Fiber will have a total of 11 colocation facilities in this segment of the route. There will be six colocation facilities between Miami and Jacksonville and five more between Jacksonville and Atlanta, where network operators will be able to set up shop to actually use the fiber for their own networks. The Miami to Atlanta route is expected to be complete by the end of 2013.
