Metromedia Fiber Network Leases Fiber-optic Infrastructure

Metromedia Fiber Network (MFN) today announced it would be leasing its fiber-optic infrastructure to IT consulting and outsourcing firm Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). CSC plans on using the fiber-optic infrastructure to provide clients with secure, high-speed connectivity to its data centers.

According to CSC, by securing the fiber-optic infrastructure from MFN, it can now deliver services over a private metro-area network, as well as offer new and enhanced services such as real-time data recovery and back-up, on-line storage and other bandwidth-intensive applications.

"CSC needs high-speed, robust and scalable bandwidth for interconnection of its data and hosting centers, campuses and key customer locations," said Harold Hickman, vice president, Network Engineering Services in CSC's Global Infrastructure Services group. "The MFN solution for metro-area fiber connectivity fits well into our global IP network architecture and strengthens our ability to deliver extremely reliable and secure communication facilities to our clients."
