Atlanta, GA and McAllen, TX, February 26, 2024 –  FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of experience designing, building, and operating mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, today announced new fiber routes from Dallas to Querétaro and Dallas to Monterrey in partnership with MDC Data Centers, the leading provider of carrier-neutral colocation services along the U.S. border with Mexico, and NeuLink, a new telecommunications operator from Monterrey, NL. FiberLight provides fiber services into MDC’s Data Center in Eagle Pass, Texas, and bridges major data centers between the United States and Mexico. 

“FiberLight is proud to be the first fiber provider to deliver connectivity to Mexico through MDC’s data center in Eagle Pass, and our partnership with NeuLink strengthens our offering for businesses by providing a secure, diverse pathway from Dallas to Querétaro and Dallas to Monterrey,” said Jay Anderson, CTO of FiberLight. “As our extensive network footprint in Texas continues to grow, FiberLight provides our customers with a redundant route that enables cross-border connectivity and advances technology initiatives.”

Meet MDC Eagle Pass

Querétaro and Monterrey are two of the fastest-growing technology hubs in Mexico, where the demand for cloud services and over-the-top (OTT) media is creating a data center boom. The surge in new construction to support new communities of entrepreneurs and to facilitate cross-border trade for enterprises requires a secure fiber infrastructure and diverse interconnectivity at strategic crossing points along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“The rapid expansion of data centers in central and northeast Mexico, built to support initiatives ranging from AI to gaming and IoT, is fueling the demand for increased bandwidth and diverse, redundant routes that can support high-volume data transmission,” said Alejandro Guzman, Co-Founder and CEO of NeuLink. “Through our partnership with FiberLight and MDC Data Centers, we’re providing a secure, long-haul route between central Mexico into Dallas, and creating a new ecosystem to enable cross-border connectivity.”

The new Dallas to Querétaro and Dallas to Monterrey routes represent FiberLight’s focus on expanding its network across Texas and builds on its partnership with MDC Data Centers to diversify pathways into the Mexican market. FiberLight has previously announced connectivity through El Paso and border crossings through Laredo, McAllen, and Brownsville. 

“MDC is committed to building a BorderConnect Platform™ that spans the length of our U.S.-Mexico border to facilitate connections that fuel business growth,” said Juan Salazar, CEO of MDC Data Centers. “Through our partnership with FiberLight and NeuLink, we’re delivering on that vision by providing a carrier-neutral access point that connects NeuLink from central Mexico into the United States and FiberLight’s robust fiber network, and is meeting the growing demand for new pathways in strategically located markets.”
