Sidera Networks (News - Alert), a company offering tailored, high capacity communications services to carrier and enterprise customers, has initiated the construction of fiber-optic network that will interconnect major cities throughout Virginia.
For many years now, Sidera has been offering a comprehensive suite of facilities-based services including: Ethernet, Wavelength, Dark Fiber, Internet Access, Colocation, and more. The new network build out will include 1,000 route miles to the existing East Coast network that will enable the customers to take benefit of scalable, resilient, and diverse network solutions.
“The new Virginia network is an important extension of our footprint, providing both new and existing customers with access to key locations throughout Virginia,” states Clint Heiden (News - Alert), president of Sidera Networks. “Sidera already connects to approximately 125 data centers; the Virginia network will provide our customers with access to additional data centers in key areas such as Culpeper and Richmond.”
Customers in Chantilly, VA to major cities including Richmond, Newport News, Roanoke and points in between will be part of the Sidera’s fiber network expansion, and this new project is expected to be complete by the end of 2013.
Heiden continues, “This expansion also will provide a diverse, high-capacity network option to major Government and Military locations throughout Virginia, bringing us closer to data centers and Financial, Healthcare, and Education hubs in North Carolina - an important benefit to our customers.”
Officials at Sidera said that they are committed to delivering cost-effective, custom solutions coupled with superior industry expertise, service and support. The company’s fiber-optic network leverages unique rights-of-way that delivers connectivity to the major metropolitan areas from Maine to Virginia and out to Chicago, as well as access to Toronto and London.
