The financial benefits of dark fiber vs. managed services from carriers are more compelling than ever.
Many companies invest in dark fiber and place their trust in the providers to ensure the fiber is of the highest quality.
If you invest in dark fiber, you need to ensure that you are receiving fiber that meets the guaranteed specifications committed to you by your fiber provider.
There are numerous vendors involved in the delivery of the fiber, having the appropriate test gear empowers you to isolate where an issue is versus the finger pointing that can occur between your data center and dark fiber providers when standards are not met.
LightRiver has over 21 years of experience deploying and troubleshooting dark fiber networks. When there are issues with the quality of the dark fiber we can offer solutions. LightRiver is partnered with EXFO to provide the appropriate test and measurement equipment to ensure that your network is performing as it should.
