Fiber Network

MBC owns and operates nearly 2,000 miles of open-access fiber optic network in 31 counties in Southern Virginia.  MBC owns the fiber sheath, the colocation facilities, and the electronics. MBC uses Ciena 6500 for TDM; Ciena Z-Series platform and Accedian for Layer 2 Ethernet Transport Network; and Infinera DTN for our 400Gb/s wavelength network. MBC’s DTN-X system at current configuration transports 1.2 Terabits per second and has capabilities to grow to 9.6 Terabits per second of transport capacity on a single pair of fiber. The FLEX-ILS technology deployed on the DTN-X system provides MBC a great deal of flexibility to grow high speed connections to Northern Virginia, the Subsea Cable systems in Virginia Beach, and throughout the Southern Virginia region.

MBC has fiber IRU agreements in place for diverse connections from the Southern Virginia regional network to Northern Virginia and key markets in the Southeastern United States: 

Equinix – Ashburn   |   Digital Realty – Atlanta   |   Equinix – Culpeper   |   QTS – Richmond   |    Telxius CLS – Virginia Beach
