Lightower at ITW 2014: Aggressive Network Expansion Drives Increased Connectivity Options for Global Carriers

BOXBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - Lightower Fiber Networks, the premier all-fiber provider of custom, high-capacity network services that ensure optimal application and business performance, will discuss the growing demand for fiber-based wholesale network solutions at ITW: International Telecoms Week 2014, May 11-14 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Chicago. ITW is one of the largest events in the U.S. each year for the wholesale telecommunications community. It offers the chance for thousands of delegates representing companies from around the globe to network and conduct business.

Lightower's participation at ITW comes at an exciting time for the company in Chicago. It is in the midst of an aggressive network expansion in the city and surrounding suburbs, constructing multiple new fiber rings that will make Lightower services available to hundreds of new commercial buildings and data centers throughout the area. The expansion, which is currently being deployed, will provide businesses, educational institutions and government organizations access to the new network and its high-performance solutions.

Lightower will also hold in-depth conversations about carrier solutions with the global array of carriers that attend ITW. Lightower provides proven and diverse wholesale connectivity for carriers that require a seamless augmentation or extension of their networks. The company's comprehensive suite of all-fiber services includes dark fiber, Ethernet, wavelength services and E-NNI

ITW comes on the heels of the completion last month of a major 400-mile all-fiber network expansion in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Demand for metro fiber continues to grow across cities in the U.S. Lightower is responding to this need by delivering increased density between key cities, commercial centers and data centers in its footprint. Lightower also simultaneously continues work on its 1,100-mile network expansion throughout the state of Virginia. This expansion will deliver much-needed fiber to commercial enterprises, government entities, military agencies, educational institutions and others that are experiencing non-stop growth in the volume of data they need to transport, analyze, store and back-up.

With more than 20,000 route miles of network and access to over 7,500 service locations, Lightower serves enterprise, government and carrier customers throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Metro Chicago.
