The FiberLocator API enables you to integrate the industry’s most current fiber and colocation infrastructure data with your own internal systems to leverage powerful intelligence in your network and data center planning efforts.
What is the FiberLocator API and what type of content is accessible?
FiberLocator offers an application programming interface that gives you access to our database of carriers, carrier lit building locations and data centers. We created our API services so that client companies can augment their own systems and analyses with our unique data sets. The FiberLocator API enables you to custom integrate continually updated fiber and colocation infrastructure information without storing the data or having to utilize the FiberLocator Online interface.
Why was www.fiberlocator.com developed?
FiberLocator was developed organically as an internal research and sales tool. We compiled and standardized map data for hundreds of facilities-based carriers and hundreds of thousands of lit buildings and data centers across the US. We did this to increase our efficiency and accuracy in consulting and quoting services for our clients. FiberLocator data allows us to quickly identify the optimal providers and network locations, measure fiber distances, see lit buildings and much more as we work on our clients’ projects. Once our customers heard about the tool, they expressed an interest in access to the system, and FiberLocator was born.
What are the specifications and what type of API?
Our system is built on a LAMP stack, and we use a REST API. You can import FiberLocator data directly into almost any GIS based application or enterprise system.
Are there limitations or restrictions with the API?
Our standard API offering includes access for 10 users and can go up from there. It is not a shared-platform API and each application is custom built for your company to your specifications.
How long does it take to get up and running?
Typically, we can get a beta version set-up in one week, and the full API can be rolled out in 30-45 days.
How do I get started?
Start by telling us more about your project, which data sets you might need, and how you’ll be using the data for your system. From there, we can design the API and program that suits your needs. Request a quote now.
