Dark Fibre at City Lifeline
Installing dark fibre involves massive front-end capital outlay, digging up miles of London streets and installing specialised secure inspection and access points.
Dark Fibre providers only invest in presence in colocation data centres they know and trust, and where they expect to generate significant revenues from voice, data or internet traffic.
Dark Fibre is suitable for organisations with large and sustainable long-term bandwidth requirements. It means you can be completely in control of the communications between your various sites, you can operate with absolute minimum latency, and you can absolutely define, reserve, minimise and control the expansion capacity and costs at the outset of an installation’s life.
