ATLANTA, Ga. -- FiberLight, LLC (FiberLight) celebrated the new year by surpassing a critical milestone in its Texas Expansion Project. As of December 31, 2013, it had completed over 4,500 miles of its planned 8,000-mile expansion across the central and western regions of Texas. FiberLight intends to install an additional 2,000 route miles in 2014 that will bring much-needed high-speed data transport services to underserved areas and will continue to support wireless backhaul demands throughout the state.

Included in FiberLight’s 2013 activities was a 400-mile expansion of its Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) metro area network. The DFW expansion connects 300 locations, including local data centers that will increase customer connectivity options and allow customers greater access to cloud-based services. Customers in smaller communities across Texas, including: Ballinger, Jasper, Happy, Shamrock, Reagan and Oilton, are also benefiting from FiberLight’s expanded network.

Once this phase of the expansion is complete, the FiberLight network within the state of Texas will span over 11,000 miles and bring critical, high-bandwidth applications to carrier, enterprise and government customers. Additionally, the expanded FiberLight network will connect major peering locations in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio to the state’s quickly-growing metro areas, including: Amarillo, Midland, Odessa, Lubbock, Abilene, Corpus Christi, Laredo, McAllen, Beaumont and Temple.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
