• Expert fiber construction at every scale.

Fiber Construction Services

In order to make fiber work for your business, the fiber has to connect to the world. Terminating your fiber at an Involta data center provides for critical backup services, such as redundant power systems, redundant climate control, high security and 24/7/365 coverage. Expand your IT network easily by utilizing Involta’s extensive fiber network.

Some Involta data centers function as carrier hotels, providing a point-of-presence (POP) for multiple data and broadband carriers. Point-of-presence along the fiber optic network can also serve as a warm disaster-recovery site for Involta clients.

Key features:

  • Value-priced broadband access
  • Low utility costs
  • 24/7/365 monitoring
  • Critical support capabilities
