Allied Fiber Launches Nationwide System in West Palm Beach
(West Palm Beach, FL) – A major high tech infrastructure company has just opened a new hub in West Palm Beach.
Allied Fiber, LLC, the first integrated, network-neutral dark fiber, colocation and interconnection provider in the United States has opened a high speed facility in the city. West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio visited the new facility during its grand opening.
The new network being built by Allied Fiber is essential for businesses requiring high traffic, high speed connections to succeed.
“Like the network of railroads were essential to growth over 100 years ago, these high speed networks will be critical tools for businesses locating in our downtown area,” said Mayor Muoio. “Hedge funds, for example, require these types of hubs in order to survive and we have exactly that infrastructure in place.”
As recently reported by PCIA, The Wireless Infrastructure Association, wireless infrastructure could be the key to the economic growth of the United States. The report predicts that wireless infrastructure could be responsible for a 2.2% increase in GDP by 2017 and goes on to forecast the wireless infrastructure industry creating 28,000 jobs in 2017 alone and over 122,000 jobs in the infrastructure industry within the next five years.
South Florida is the first region in the United States that will get to experience the technological and economic advantages this new network infrastructure is delivering. Beyond this, companies in the South Florida region will have enhanced access to technology as a whole, making for better internet access, faster connections which will lead to increased business success.
