Currently under construction, Harbor Link, Inc.®’s network will span across three major metropolitan areas – Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia – providing fiber-based connectivity to major data centers, on-net and near-net enterprise buildings, business and educational campuses, carrier points-of-presence, and more.
This new route offers dual-diverse paths along I-95 and Maryland RT-97, fortifying connectivity from Baltimore, MD, to Northern Virginia, home to the world’s largest data center and network connectivity hub. This vital corridor currently has limited access to dark fiber, with only raw data pipes that can be lit and serviced by providers and private network operators for enhanced data transmission and security. Harbor Link’s underground infrastructure system will provide local and long-haul dark fiber capacity, with more than 300 easy access points to enable connectivity to bridge the digital divide for underserved communities along the route.
Key highlights of the new conduit route include:
- 60-miles of wholly new conduit
- Duel, diverse paths along I-95 and MD RT-97
- 300 easy access points to the conduit system from Maryland through Northern Virginia
- Full pathway resiliency, diversity, and redundancy
- End-to-end connectivity under 1 millisecond from Baltimore to Northern Virginia
Due to our construction plan devised for speed and efficiency, access to our robust network, stretching from Baltimore, through DC, and into Virginia comes with flexible design options to give channel partners, wholesale carriers, and their end customers the control, privacy, security, and bandwidth they need.
