The seven-mile multi-duct fiber optic system will enable connectivity to data centers along the route offering fiber and conduit access
ASHBURN, VA – May 2, 2023 – Harbor Peak Network Solutions LLC (Harbor Peak), a joint entity specializing in dark fiber, interconnect and network planning services on a carrier-neutral basis, announces it has broken ground on a new middle-mile network infrastructure build in Ashburn, Virginia that will facilitate connectivity among numerous private and public data centers. Initially announced in January, the Harbor Peak project sets out to bring a seven-mile, multi-duct fiber cable system to facilities throughout Ashburn’s Data Center Alley.
The Harbor Peak conduit and fiber ring is designed to address the ongoing data center interconnection needs in the burgeoning Northern Virginia market. The planned route features conduit for fiber optic cables to enable multi-path, high-speed connectivity, with initial availability of at least 864 count fiber. The underground infrastructure system will provide local and long-haul dark fiber capacity and conduit access, with easy access points to enable interconnection. The network will enable lateral connections into the many data centers surrounding the conduit system, and interconnect to Harbor Link’s 60-mile conduit build along I-95 to Washington D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland, totaling approximately 300 route miles between the networks.
“We at Harbor Peak are thrilled to get construction for this venture underway in Ashburn,” comments Felix Dialoiso, Founder and CEO of Harbor Link, a partner in Harbor Peak. “We’re on a mission to interconnect Data Center Alley, and provide the market with increased access to high speed, reliable fiber optic cable connectivity. And it doesn’t stop here. When this first phase is complete, we will continue construction to connect the system to Manassas.”
Harbor Peak is an innovative network company that specializes in the development of infrastructure to support the digital transport needs of carriers, OTT’s and technology clients. With a focus on securing fiber routes and computing facilities that provide for diversity, scalability and cost efficiency, the company’s capabilities also include last mile access in metro areas and data centers.
When complete, the network will offer data center operators throughout the region access to a resilient conduit and fiber network ring that meets or exceeds G.652.d fiber specifications and standards. Carriers, data center providers and network operators will be able to utilize the Harbor Peak network to meet their connectivity requirements for either conduit or dark fiber access with leased options as well as long-termindefeasible right or use (IRUs). The system is expected to be ready for service by the end of Q’2 2024. The network route traverses key data center facilities located on Beaumeade Circle in Ashburn (21551, 21571, 21800), 22271 Broderick Drive; 44470 Chilum Place; Guilford Drive (44610 ,44633, 44664); 21955 Loudoun County Parkway; 45761 Maries Road; Red Rum Drive (21635, 21741); UUnet Drive (21821, 21830,); 44621 Waxpool Road, Digital Loudoun Plaza; Round Table Plaza and Devin Shafron Drive.
