Dark Fiber

A Dark Fiber is an existing fiber-optic line that is dormant — that is, not currently in use — to allow for flexibility as data needs evolve.

The ever-growing need for greater network connectivity and faster performance puts demands on existing telecommunications infrastructure, thus increasing the value of dark fiber as an option for data centers.

Stream routinely works with multiple service providers to lay dark fiber paths to major carrier hotels and cloud interconnection locations, giving customers the flexibility to expand beyond providers in their immediate area with access to a greater breadth of network and cloud providers.
