Bringing Clarity to Dark Fiber

For years, the process of purchasing dark fiber has been exactly that: dark and cloaked in mystery.

Most providers covet this asset while pushing more lucrative lit services on customers. On the rare occasion a provider does sell some fiber, it’s an overly complex process that can take months and come with severe restrictions designed to keep competitors out of the market.  

Even considering the above, the technology for “lighting” fiber has actually been vastly simplified and become far less expensive.  For many enterprises, it represents the ultimate assurance of performance, security, and quality: a high-speed private network that can connect you to every service provider, cloud, or content provider in the world.

That's why we are here.

 

 

Cleareon was founded to bring dark fiber out into the open… and the possibilities of better, faster networking to everyone.

How We Operate


 

 

 

 

 

Our Promise: Transparent by Design. Responsive by Nature.

From inventory to provisioning to support, Cleareon is guided by one simple promise: absolute transparency.

We’ll show you our routes and how quickly our services can be delivered. In many cases, our fiber is pre-terminated in carrier hotels, data centers and enterprise buildings, allowing us to provision strands in as little as 48 hours.

We keep the pricing simple and straightforward too, and we don’t restrict your use of the fiber: it’s yours to use as you see fit.

 

 

If you’re tired of dealing with carriers who act like they’ve got something to hide, it’s time to give Cleareon a call.

The Cleareon network consists of the highest quality fiber connecting some of the most popular facilities in Manhattan, including:

• 60 Hudson Street

Our dark fiber network terminates in each of these facilities, ready to cross-connect to hundreds of wired and wireless carriers, clouds, media companies, financial networks and content providers, giving your business instant access to just about anywhere in the digital world.

We will soon be adding several more carrier hotels, data centers and enterprise buildings. Please check our website often for new buildings and data centers.

In addition, near term plans are in place to further expand our network in downtown Manhattan and across the Hudson River into New Jersey.  This means we can rapidly extend into nearby enterprise office buildings, where we can provide in-building wiring, collocation of content/cloud services and small-cell/DAS/cellular.

 

Cleareon is always looking at the future evolution of network infrastructure – ensuring your network excels today and into the future.
