Fiber Maps Spanning Minnesota and Surrounding States Available to FiberLocator Community
NEWTON, Mass. (Jan. 25, 2012) – Leading fiber network maps resource FiberLocator announced today that Enventis, a subsidiary of HickoryTech, has published its metro fiber route maps and carrier information in FiberLocator’s quickly-growing database of high capacity networks, lit buildings and data centers. The Enventis fiber routes connect multiple strategic and geographic locations and extend throughout Minnesota, Iowa, the Dakotas and Western Wisconsin, areas generally under-populated with low-latency network solutions.
The Enventis network features more than 3,250 miles of fiber built as SONET rings for maximum redundancy and protection. Their product set offers fiber-based transport services including TDM from DS1 to OC192, DWDM and MPLS technology, and Ethernet and IP services up to GigE. Enventis provides secure, reliable connectivity to most national and regional carriers, and their footprint spans across Minnesota and into Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
Steve McCarthy, chief architect of the FiberLocator product suite, welcomed the addition of the Enventis maps, saying “The scope and breadth of their network is impressive, especially considering the region that they’re in. There isn’t a preponderance of fiber carriers in Minnesota and the neighboring upper Midwest states, so the new data from Enventis provides FiberLocator users and network planners with more map and lit building data in these thriving northern states.”
McCarthy continued, “By adding their assets to our extensive database, Enventis has opened up their presence and their network footprint to many potential new clients – especially carriers, enterprise customers and those in the commercial real estate industry.”
In addition to publishing their maps in the FiberLocator searchable application, Enventis has also provided a solutions detail in the FiberLocator carrier information feature to help users learn more about the company and the services they offer. This is particularly helpful on a national scale to those who are not located in the region and may be unfamiliar with Enventis and its network.
FiberLocator is currently accepting carrier maps for long-haul and metro networks as well as seeking data center locations and specs.
