GTT Communications Dark Fiber

Private network tailored to your needs

Custom high-capacity networks

GTT Communications Dark Fiber network is Europe’s largest and most recently deployed homogenous fiber footprint, with dense coverage both between and within all key European cities. Additionally, our clients can take advantage of their partner's fiber network interconnect capabilities to extend reach beyond the network footprint. Finally, we offer network-build options for bespoke off-net dark fiber expansions to ensure our clients have the connectivity they need.

Top Features

  • Reach

    The GTT long-haul fiber network dovetails into GTT’s metropolitan fiber footprints, with substantial fiber & duct assets in several key European cities including London, Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Rome, Milan, Madrid, Zurich, & Vienna. GTT also owns & operates minor fiber assets in many other cities & maintains multiple third-party partnerships allowing clients to extend their reach beyond GTT fully owned footprint.

  • Future-proof fiber

    GTT’s fiber network is the newest pan-European deployment, which translates to improved performance and ensures that circuits on long-term IRU contracts will meet their end-of-life specifications. Fiber has market-leading PMD and attenuation statistics, which is fundamental as the market moves beyond 100G wavelength deployments.

  • Fiber management

    Because they own the network from the duct up, any network fix is entirely under GTT control, meaning clients can expect a consistent, high level of service and rapid resolution of network issues. GTT utilizes superior, carrier-class telemetry and service indicators to predict fiber stresses that may lead to breaks, aiding in break prevention. Further, the telemetry can accurately locate cuts to improve field services mobilization and reduce service downtime.

  • Colocation

    A strong, complementary colocation capability is central to any credible long-haul fiber deployment. GTT’s amplifier colocation footprint is highly secure and expandable, with redundant power options, battery autonomy, and gen-set availability, all backed by well-established maintenance procedures and a stringent SLA. The average distance between colocation facilities is only 72km, and in 92% of cases, the distance between facilities is less than 90km.
