Washington D.C. First in Nation to Get 100-Gigabit Fiber “DC-CAN” Network

Washington D.C. First in Nation to Get 100-Gigabit Fiber "DC-CAN" Network

Washington D.C. First in Nation to Get 100-Gigabit Fiber "DC-CAN" Network

Mayor Vincent C. Gray and officials from the District’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) announced today that the first link in the DC government’s new high-speed fiber network, the DC Community Access Network (DC-CAN), has gone live with 100-gigabit-per-second (100G) service – enabling the kind of technology-infrastructure development vital to competing in a 21st-century economy.

The initial link serves communities east of the Anacostia River, but the ultra-high-speed network will soon serve the entire District – providing infrastructure not currently available on such a large scale anywhere else in the country, and doing so at affordable prices.

“With this 100G connection, we are making history by providing state-of-the-art network capacity that will help create jobs and grow the District’s economy well into the 21st century,” said Mayor Gray. “DC-CAN will help pave the way for greater broadband adoption across the District of Columbia, and I’m proud that we will be the first city in the United States to make such a forward-thinking investment in crucial technology infrastructure.”

This milestone makes the District the first city in the nation to build a network that is 10 times faster than typical service-provider networks today. The ultra-high-speed link allows “last-mile” service providers (who provide Internet access to end users) to take immediate advantage of low-cost services via DC-CAN – thus enabling them to bring affordable broadband services to residents and businesses in underserved areas of the city.

As the first city-owned 100G network in the nation, DC-CAN positions the District to deliver cost-effective “middle-mile” services at ultra-high capacity to government entities and private-sector Internet Service Providers (ISPs) well into the future. The network’s capacity surpasses that of other municipal networks in the country, including those in California’s Silicon Valley and other major tech hubs.
