Alpheus launches dark fibre service for enterprise in Texas

04 August 2016 | Alan Burkitt-Gray

Texas-based Alpheus Communications has launched a managed dark fibre service aimed at enterprises.

The service gives them access to what Alpheus calls “virtually unlimited high-capacity bandwidth via a dark fibre solution designed, managed and monitored by Alpheus engineers”.

“We are responding to large businesses that need high-capacity bandwidth beyond wavelength services, but don’t want the commitment of long-term dark fibre IRU contracts and tying up valuable IT resources for network maintenance,” said Francisco Maella, Alpheus’s chief operating officer.

“There are significant complexities in building a fibre network, and large businesses are telling us they want reliable high-capacity bandwidth, but prefer to leverage Alpheus’s expertise to design, implement and manage their fibre infrastructure.”

Alpheus has facilities in Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi and the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.
