What is Dark Fiber?
Ufinet specializes in providing you with the most adaptable form of communications technology: Dark Fiber. Our customers benefit from this service by being able to use a 61,000+ km of optical fiber cable network with a full infrastructure ready for renting a single, a pair or more strands, either for small, medium or long-distance requests.
What is the main characteristic of Dark Fiber?
Unlike Capacity Services (purchasing bandwidth or leased line capacity on an existing network), Dark Fiber is fiber optic threads that have not yet been used and you can rent. These types of services allow you to be in full control of the network. This means that we create a privately-operated optical fiber network that is run directly by you.
Therefore, you will be able to select the transmission technology of your choice to provide a point-to-point or use star self-healing ring or mesh topologies for the solution your client is searching for.
Dark fiber networks may be used for private networking, or as Internet access or Internet infrastructure networking. The adoption of this knowledge grew very fast this last decade.
One of the features that make UFINET almost unique around the world is that we offer dark fiber, either in the form of rental of threads or in the mode of long-term transfer of rights to use through commercial agreements or IRU: Indefeasible Right of Use.
This kind of service is more convenient for customers requiring very high bandwidth connectivity. We provide the dark fiber cable and the customer illuminates it according to its needs and own equipment. Our laying of dark fiber has permanent maintenance, in a preventive and routine approach, as well as in the face of a breakdown.
Monomode optical fiber – we use monomode fiber optic only, which sends information through a single high intensity light beam
Fiber connections with or without redundancy by an independent second way
Diverse contractual periods and rental modalities
Unlike multimode fiber, monomode optical fibers reach very large distances and transmit information without loss of packages
Personalized bilingual customer support 24x7 through our Network Operations Center (NOC)
Fulfillment of the most demanding SLA's: Service Level Agreements of the market
We offer towering services with added benefits to our clients: bundle with electric power, connectivity by FO and RF (if needed). This provides additional advantages for customers, which increases their competitiveness.
