OAK BROOK, Ill. -- Looking Glass® Networks, Inc., a facilities-based provider of metropolitan data transport services, announced today that CANARIE, Canada’s advanced Internet organization, a not-for-profit corporation that facilitates the development and use of next-generation research networks and the applications and services that run on them, selected Looking Glass to provide dark fiber services to support networks which are central to international innovations in research and education.

“Looking Glass is delighted to be able to offer our services for research and education initiatives similar to those supported by international organizations like CANARIE,” said Lori McCaffrey, Vice President of Sales, Looking Glass Networks. “By offering connectivity to CANARIE’s key locations in Chicago, our metro network proved to be in the right locations for them allowing us to provide a flexible and affordable dark fiber solution.”

CANARIE purchased Looking Glass’ DarkGLASSSM services in Chicago to extend its connection to StarLight locations in furtherance of its commitment to research and education in Canada and around the world. StarLight is an advanced optical infrastructure and proving ground for network services optimized for high-performance applications. Looking Glass was able to deliver its dark fiber services to CANARIE on time and within their budget. The company’s dark fiber gives CANARIE and others like them the flexibility to manage their own networks with the confidence that the underlying fiber infrastructure is being expertly provisioned and maintained.

“CANARIE, as one of the first members of StarLight, chose Looking Glass to play an integral role in our ability to expand our participation and commitment to being an enabler and innovator of research, education and the promotion of the Internet,” said Bill St. Arnaud, Senior Director, Advanced Networks, CANARIE. “Looking Glass’ dark fiber service met our connectivity objectives and went beyond our expectations for fast delivery—they were at the right place, at the right time and at the right price.”
