Integra division’s fiber-optic route reaches Quincy data centers

The Columbian

Electric Lightwave, a division of the Vancouver-based fiber network provider Integra, said Tuesday that it has completed its long-haul fiber-optic route to Quincy.

The direct route to one of the country’s largest data-center clusters lets Electric Lightwave offer customers high-bandwidth connections between Quincy data centers and several western U.S. metro areas, the company said.

Quincy has attracted major cloud computing and high tech companies such as Dell, Intuit, Microsoft and Yahoo, the Port of Quincy has stated.

Electric Lightwave’s new route addresses the needs of enterprise, carrier and government customers for secure, high-capacity wavelength service connectivity to those centers, the company said.

In addition to supporting access to more than 100 data centers, Electric Lightwave says its dense fiber network supports access to more than 100 data centers and serves 3,350 buildings with 12,500 route-miles of fiber.
