The FIBER20 network was designed by a team of experts experienced in the design and implementation of large-scale global networks. FIBER20 utilizes Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) to transport network traffic across hundreds of miles of new fiber through districts who have volunteered to serve as Hub Sites. The network is resilient around Northern and Southern rings with instantaneous failover in the event of a fiber cut. Resiliency like this is not even offered by big-name ISPs.
Each circuit is meticulously tested for connectivity and signal strength tolerances utilizing OTDR and Power Meter testing before any equipment is placed in-line. The FIBER20 network core is located at the Taylor Street datacenter with fail over control at Region 20. Network and member districts benefit from the following:
- Video surveillance 24/7/365
- Secure biometric access into the data center
- Two distinct 100Gb service provider connections with diverse building entrances and fiber paths
- Generator backup
