FiberLight Case Study

Kicking network management into high gear


From 400 to 14,000 route miles of fiber, FiberLight is rapidly expanding metro areas in the United States - and growing by the day. They require a network management solution that keeps them on track to deliver some of the most agile, secure, scalable, reliable, and flexible custom services in the industry.

Now equipped with a single view of their fiber and ancillary network data and augmented network routing capabilities, the business can target market campaigns to available resources. With more accurate network data in one system of truth, FiberLight is now able to document the connectivity of the fiber strands and report available resources and utilization of resources to reduce their municipal and regulatory reporting efforts.
