OAK BROOK, Ill. -- Looking Glass® Networks, Inc., a facilities-based provider of metropolitan data transport services, announced today that the University of Washington, the oldest state-supported institution of higher education on the Pacific coast, selected Looking Glass dark fiber to support research and education in conjunction with Pacific Wave, Pacific Northwest Gigapop, and other leading-edge high-bandwidth networking initiatives.

“Looking Glass is proud to be a part of the University of Washington’s visionary network supporting, among other programs, international academic peering exchange facilities,” said Nick Lenoci, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Looking Glass Networks. “Having built our own flexible Seattle metro network allowed us to fast track this project for the customer and meet their tight deadline by delivering dark fiber within two weeks of receiving their order.”

The University of Washington is utilizing Looking Glass’ DarkGLASSSM services to extend its connection from certain submarine cable landing points in Oregon and California to Seattle. This solution supports multiple applications for global, regional, and local research and education programs. Looking Glass’ Seattle network provided the capacity and connectivity to the key carrier and data aggregation locations the University of Washington required.

“The University of Washington prides itself on the advancement and dissemination of knowledge. Looking Glass’ dark fiber services helped us to further our mission in a timely and cost effective manner,” said Scott Mah, Assistant Vice President of Computing and Communications. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Looking Glass and accessing the company’s high bandwidth resources when and where we need them.”
