AiNET starts construction of metro fiber optic network in Washington


AiNET announced that it started construction of metro
fiber optic network in Washington. Expansion of AiNET’s current regional
network with a new 3-ring, 9,600 fiber-route mile, DWDM fiber optic network
throughout downtown Washington will satisfy bandwidth hunger in nation’s
capital and give commercial and Government users access to a range of
mission-critical applications residing in AiNET data centers.


Using the latest DWDM (Dense Wave Division Multiplexing)
technology, the AiNET network will bring limitless capacity to many underserved
users with applications hungry for bandwidth. Areas served by this extensive,
3-ring, 9,600 fiber-route mile network include: Georgetown, the lower Wisconsin
Avenue district, the West End, Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle, the K Street
corridor, Penn Quarter, and the Central Business District (CBD) – with special
focus on high concentrations of Federal office buildings, surrounding the
Capital, and south of the National Mall. Notably, the network will be completed
underground and offer a high degree of diversity from the fiber routes already
in place.


Data center and Cloud customers need high speed, highly
reliable connectivity. This expansion of our existing network, throughout
Maryland, DC and Virginia will enhance connectivity between AiNET’s Tier IV
data centers, carrier hotels and many customer facilities,” said Deepak Jain,
president of


Carrier hotels served by AiNET’s existing network include
1275 K Street in Washington and 300 West Lexington Street in Baltimore. With
the network in place, those in newly-served buildings in Washington will have
immediate access to the full range of AiNET’s mission-critical applications
including its best-in-class Cloud, Trusted Storage (as a Service), Disaster
Recovery/Continuity of Operations (DR/COOP), and Internet access services.


Qualified Federal and DC government agencies can have
physical access to AiNET’s Cloud services and COOP services via our fiber optic
network and contractual access to them through AiNET’s GSA Schedule,” Jain
