South Reach Networks (SRN) is deploying equipment needed to offer high capacity 10G, 100G and 400G Ethernet and wavelength services across its networks across the Southeast US.

The upgrade forms part of the company’s network expansion and well as its ongoing project to light and interconnect key data centres and enterprise buildings from the Atlanta region to Jacksonville, Florida and onto Miami. It aims to connect an estimated 15 data centres by Q4 of 2021.

At the same time, SRN is also in the process of making several new connections to key cable landing stations along the coast, enabling data centres and carriers to access subsea routes connecting the Caribbean and Latam with North America.

Delivered using its metro fibre networks in Jacksonville, Boca Raton and Miami, SRN is creating new routes to support the growing demand of large enterprise and tech firms in these cities. As well as supporting Multiple Dwelling Units and Home Owner Association developments located on or near SRN’s fibre network throughout the state.

“In particular, the Central Florida Coast has been a growth area for these types of communities that are often underserved in terms of options for diverse fibre and the services that our infrastructure supports,” said Kevin Rocks (pictured), EVP of sales and marketing at South Reach Networks.

“Many of these communities in Florida are demanding network upgrades to existing facilities to offer the same services as new developments day one.”

In addition, the launch of new 5G towers in the Central Florida region requires terrestrial backhaul fibre that will allow SRN to extend its underground fibre network to these new sites. As such, SRN is working to provide fibre solutions near these new sites.

Additionally, the location of South Reach Networks Edge Data Centers to these areas enables new connectivity options where a short-haul fibre or wireless options are needed to connect the backbone to remote sites.
