Dark Fibre is one of the sexiest terms in IT, but not many people understand what it actually is.

Dark Fibre


Data is transported over optical fibre networks by passing light through the cables.

If there is no data being transported, there is no light – this means that the fibre is ‘dark’.


Dark Fibre is essentially optical fibre infrastructure that is not in use.

Eloquent technologies bring these fibre connections to life with highly specialise optical connections, and then used this technology to develop bespoke dark fibre networks providing the ultimate in capacity and control.

Dark Fibre offers a physical fibre connection between sites with the ability for the user to completely control the network environment. Anything and everything that passes down the fibre is controlled by the operator, whose own network team light and manage the connection. The bandwidth is limited only by the hardware at each end.

Our Intelligent Design team use Dark Fibre to create the ultimate high speed, low latchey and highly resilient network solutions for our customers that require the best technical solution possible.
