What steps should I take when building a private fiber optic network?

A self-built fiber optic cabling infrastructure can dramatically lower capital expenditures and operating expenses. If you’re an IT leader considering building a private network, follow these steps:

  1. Acquire dark fiber - select a provider who can fill your requirements and provide for your current and future needs, within budget and with good fiber quality.
  2. Decide on a colocation site - select a site (hybrid cloud, on premise, etc.) that fits your enterprise’s unique needs such as cost, location, power rental, security, and proximity to servers.
  3. Define equipment needs - consider capacity requirements, continuous data transmission between sites, level of security needed, and scalability of the infrastructure for future network needs.
  4. Train your staff - train your network managers and IT team to ensure smooth integration into the organization’s infrastructure.
