With the construction of its dark fiber network, Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG) is enhancing connection options for the San Francisco Bay Area's densely populated area of data centers. Critical fiber infrastructure is now available from Santa Clara in the San Francisco Bay Area to the Great Oaks neighborhood of San Jose thanks to the deployment of a third completely varied route. In one of the most active marketplaces in the world, the newest route provides businesses and data centers with much-needed dark-fiber connectivity. 

According to Cushman & Wakefield, the Silicon Valley market is currently developing an extra 300 MW of data center capacity. The expansion highlights the critical need for dependable infrastructure to link computing facilities, cloud service providers, and network operators globally. With the help of Bandwidth IG's enlarged network, hyperscalers, businesses, and network operators now have access to high-count, newly constructed dark fiber that runs entirely underground between data centers or from data centers to businesses. 

The network extension project is the most recent example of Bandwidth IG's dedication to provide the San Francisco Bay Area with more dark fiber services. Bandwidth IG has constructed more over 200 route miles in the region during the previous three years. The company intends to add another 90 route miles in the year, enabling it to become one of Silicon Valley's most dense and varied networks. 

Almost 65 data centers in the market offer access to the San Francisco Bay Area network of bandwidth IG. All of Bandwidth IG's dark fiber networks are brand-new constructions that are entirely underground and follow the shortest path. Being one of the major data center marketplaces in the United States, Silicon Valley needs additional dark fiber options, and the genuinely diversified routes assure minimum overlap with existing networks.
