Southern Telecom Completes Installation of Georgia State University's Northern Fiber Optic Ring

Southern Telecom, a wholly owned subsidiary of Southern Company, today announced an expansion of its agreement with Georgia State University, a leading research university in Atlanta, Ga.

Southern Telecom has completed the installation of Georgia State University's Northern Fiber Optic Ring. Southern Telecom leveraged its inventory of existing Atlanta central business district ducts and expanded its duct system reach to complete a highly reliable, redundant, 432-count backbone fiber optic network for Georgia State University.

"Southern Telecom has supported Georgia State University for many years," said Leif Ericson , business development manager with Southern Telecom. "Georgia State has had significant growth in student enrollment and infrastructure. Due to this growth, Southern Telecom has worked with Georgia State to meet its ever-evolving, state-of-the-art communications needs."

This initiative serves as an extension of the Southern Fiber Optic Ring that Southern Telecom created for the university several years ago. The Northern Ring complements the existing Southern Ring by connecting 13 additional buildings to the campus network footprint. By adding fiber laterals to new and existing buildings, including two carrier hotels, the university has significant network capacity to meet its student and faculty needs well into the future.

"We look forward to continued assistance from Southern Telecom in meeting our future telecommunication needs," said J.L. Albert , Georgia State University's assistant vice president for Information Systems and Technology and CIO.

The project features multiple ring architectures and redundant hubs.
