FiberLight will provide fiber to MDC Data Center in Eagle Pass, TX, to deliver strategic cross-border connectivity and diversity
Atlanta, GA and McAllen TX – March 30, 2023 – FiberLight, LLC, a company with more than 20 years of experience in building and operating mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, and MDC Data Centers, the leading provider of carrier-neutral colocation services along the U.S. border, have announced the launch of a new facility in Eagle Pass, TX. FiberLight will be a founding member of this new facility as the first fiber provider.
Featuring MDC’s International Fiber Crossing Infrastructure, the new data center located at 500 Bliss Street will act as a bridge between new fiber routes on the border, enabling connections between Dallas and the central Mexican city of Querétaro. FiberLight will provide fiber services to the data center.
Querétaro, located 125 miles from Mexico City, is experiencing a data center boom driven mostly by the need for cloud service providers and over-the-top (OTT) media companies to service customers and enterprises in Mexico. The fast-growing Data Center and Cloud Services industry in Santiago de Querétaro needs diverse interconnectivity with major OTT companies and Content Providers in the U.S., crossing strategic points along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Thanks to our Texas footprint, FiberLight is pleased to deliver fiber to the new MDC Data Center strategically located in Eagle Pass,” said Jay Anderson, Chief Technology Officer of FiberLight. “We are excited for the opportunity to offer connectivity to MDC Data Centers and enable cross-border consistent service for all their customers,” he said.
“For more than a decade, MDC has been a trusted partner, guide, and advocate for networks on both sides of the border,” said Juan Salazar, CEO of MDC Data Centers. “Our vision is to provide our clients with a BorderConnect™ Platform that spans the length and breadth of the U.S.-Mexico border. This new location is a vital step towards realizing that vision,” he said.
MDC Data Centers is committed to making its BorderConnect™ Platform even more accessible to generate connections between top network operators, content providers and communities all along the border. FiberLight provides connectivity to multiple MDC Data Centers in Texas, including:
- MDC McAllen (MCA1), 200 S 10th Street
