Durango, Colorado – FastTrack Communications selected the Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. modular 1FINITY optical networking platform to enhance its fiber optic network. With the help of Fujitsu and channel partner LightRiver, FastTrack is deploying a disaggregated architecture to boost network capacity, agility and scalability.

As demand for high-speed internet continues to escalate, FastTrack is updating its locally owned and managed fiber optic network to deliver enhanced next-generation business services throughout Colorado and New Mexico. In order to increase bandwidth as quickly and efficiently as possible, FastTrack opted for a solution that matches functionality to site requirements and employs a scalable pay-as-you-grow approach. With more flexibility, span reach and capacity, FastTrack can pass along peak operational efficiency to business customers and enterprises seeking mission-critical data transport, high-speed internet connectivity and voice over IP service.

“As the only local provider of fiber-based, business internet in the region, FastTrack services are unrivaled. This network update is a strategic investment in the long-term success of our business customers,” said Kelly Hebbard, general manager, FastTrack Communications. “The Fujitsu platform is a great fit for our first-rate fiber network, helping us power local businesses, community institutions and communications carriers at next-generation speeds.”

“Fujitsu is committed to supporting our long-standing customer FastTrack Communications in enhancing its scalable infrastructure,” said Annie Bogue, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc.

“We are proud to work with the team at FastTrack Communications to bring expanded bandwidth service to businesses throughout Colorado and New Mexico,” said Matt Briley, senior vice president of service provider sales at LightRiver Technologies.

FastTrack Communications is the only locally owned and managed fiber optic-based internet provider in the region. FastTrack operates and maintains its own advanced optical equipment and fiber optic network, delivering new and unique telecom products to organizations of all sizes at competitive prices since 2002. The entity was formed by two rural electrical cooperatives—La Plata Electric Association and Empire Electric Association—to bring state-of-the-art telecommunications to underserved rural areas. FastTrack technology powers local businesses, community institutions and communications carriers at very reasonable rates throughout Colorado and New Mexico. The company remains locally owned and operated, with corporate headquarters located in Durango, Colorado.
