Second fiber path into data center gives local companies the ability to institute business continuity practices, which is often mandated by industry regulations

November 29, 2011 – ROCHESTER, NY and INDIANAPOLIS

Fibertech Networks, a leading provider of broadband capacity serving the Indianapolis community since 2002, has completed a dual fiber entrance to Lifeline Data Centers’ Eastgate facility. The new, second entrance willallow Indianapolis government, health care, and financial service organizations to effectively meet industry compliance standards for network uptime and access to information.

“Redundancy in the network is easily the most important offering that this dual entrance provides,” said Alex Carroll, president for Lifeline Data Centers. ”Customers that manage mission critical applications must be aligned with the telecommunications industry compliance standard TIA-942. One of the requirements with this standard is that there must be diverse, dual paths for customers that require 99.999% uptime and the entrance that Fibertech recently installed accomplishes this.”
