Allied Fiber (News - Alert) today added another member to its Dark Fiber Community: Dspoz-IT, a provider of information technology service management solutions (ITSM). The company tends to focus on finding environmentally responsible methods for disposing of IT assets, while gaining the highest possible return on those assets.
Indeed, through its E-Steward Certified Partnerships, Dspoz-IT provides IT/electronic disposal services. Each E-Steward Certified Partner is a top provider of environmental solutions for assets management and follows a full chain of custody security framework, ensuring that a company's electronic assets are recycled properly, in an environmentally friendly way. Furthermore, all Certified Partners follow standards of no overseas shipping and a zero landfill policy to reduce global e-waste.
“The rate of consumption of IT networking equipment has increased dramatically. In response, the demand for environmentally responsible ways to manage and dispose of IT assets has increased,” said Hunter Newby (News - Alert) , founder and CEO of Allied Fiber and founder of the Dark Fiber Community. “Dspoz-IT’s expertise in green disposal of IT assets will add a depth of knowledge and encourage better practices for network operators through the Dark Fiber Community and for our members.”
Allied Fiber's Dark Fiber Community currently boasts over 150 members and serves as a portal for access to the entire industry. Within a year of its launch on TMCnet, the Dark Fiber Community was receiving around 120,000 page views per month. According to Newby, the community's success is largely due to its focus on collaboration, allowing potential customers learn and collaborate with experts in the industry.
Categories within the community include equipment vendors, infrastructure builders, financing companies, carrier services and industry associations. Some companies involved in the community include Salsgiver, Metro Network Services and AFL. The overall goal of the Dark Fiber Community is to bring together those who aim to build optical transport networks efficiently and cost effectively.
