Dark fiber

Renting 'dark' fiber is a simple and flexible-use solution. For example, a company can rent 'dark' fiber and then set up a communications line of the required capacity, increasing it if necessary, while continuing to operate the same cable. The cost of renting 'dark' fiber does not depend on data transfer speed. The stability of the monthly fee is an essential factor for many companies. In addition, with this model, the customer keeps critical communications infrastructure under control.

Renting a 'dark' fiber is the most secure solution against data interception and hacking. Normally, the user's own cable would be easy to identify simply by the identifying the cable owner's tags. With 'dark' fiber, however, it is almost impossible to determine which cable is used. Any outside interference into the FOCL operation is promptly fixed and immediately dealt with by Mastertel's dedicated staff teams.

The 'Master-Connect' network is built with high-quality optical fiber and covers the entire territory of Moscow and its suburbs. The total length of the Master-Connect network is over 8,000 km. Mastertel's unique network infrastructure, created to provide 'dark' fiber to telecom operators, is constantly expanding. The Company is continuously working on the design and construction of the network. Master-Connect is successfully used by many telecom operators, including large companies and corporate clients, eager to solve their own IT-tasks.

The client can buy or rent a part of the network ('dark' optics) for their own needs, having already received a reliable and high-quality communications channel to their data centers or remote offices. If the client so wishes, it is possible to sign a Service Level Agreement (SLA), which regulates the guarantee of compliance with the technical characteristics of the channel. Mastertel's own technical service deals with outages and technical issues 24/7/365.

To connect to the network, 'jumpers' are laid to the customer's facilities. The construction of these 'jumpers' is carried out entirely by Mastertel, in some cases at the expense of the telecommunications provider itself. The owner gets the opportunity to connect to the building of any provider, while retaining full control over their activities. For owners of office centers, a free connection to Master-Connect's network is provided.

The main features of the offer are its unique coverage scale, the extent of the Master-Connect network, it's highly reliable radial-ring structure and its full main-section redundancy. As a result, the average distance of the network to any customer's facility does not exceed 350 m. The network covers most commercial buildings of the Capital (over 2,000).

Mastertel is the only company that leases 'dark' fiber on a metropolitan scale. This allows you to quickly link up remote servers, communications equipment and other systems. The capabilities of the Master-Connect network remove the restrictions on the use of 'dark' fiber, increase the fault tolerance of networks and allow you to quickly assemble any route, including point-to-point connections between large data centers. Working directly with the provider of 'dark' optics, customers have the opportunity to manage their communications infrastructure without intermediaries.
