Axiom Fiber Networks Pulls 864-Strands through Manhattan

Axiom Fiber Networks, a new telecom infrastructure services provider, officially launched in New York City.

Axiom will offer dark fiber to enterprise and carrier customers from its newly constructed network.  The company says it will be able to supply single pair to high fiber-counts along routes that link the key traffic exchanges in New York City. Axiom’s core network operates "within striking distance of every building in Midtown and Lower Manhattan."

The network uses 864 strands of the latest generation fiber.  Construction began in late 2014 and the first stage, connecting multiple carrier hotels, is scheduled to be complete in the first quarter of 2015 with the remaining stages finalized in the second quarter.

Axiom Fiber Networks is led by telecom industry veteran Felipe J. Alvarez, who has more than 25 years of telecommunications experience gained from companies such as Sidera Networks (formerly RCN Metro), Con Edison Communications, Inc., Hibernia Networks, and Verizon.

“I am thrilled to be back at building a service provider business that not only addresses continued market demand for fiber connectivity but also gaps in the marketplace in areas such as customer service, deal flexibility, and speed of delivery” comments Mr. Alvarez “We have assembled a proven leadership team that offers a deep understanding of the complexities of deploying and operating a successful telecommunications network infrastructure, and that shares a common passion for customer focus and customer service.”
