ExteNet Systems Completes Acquisition of Axiom Fiber Networks
Expands footprint in Manhattan with high-bandwidth, purpose-built fiber
CHICAGO, November 13, 2017 – ExteNet Systems, , the leading provider of Distributed Network Systems (DNS) enabling advanced cellular, wireless and broadband connectivity across urban and rural America, today announced the completion of its acquisition of MetroFiber Co., LLC, d/b/a Axiom Fiber Networks. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Axiom’s high-bandwidth fiber will be accretive to ExteNet’s existing purpose-built fiber in Manhattan. Overlaying Axiom’s newly-built and high strand count fiber to its fiber plant positions ExteNet well to address the increasing densification, bandwidth and communication needs throughout New York City.
“Our customers, including service providers, building owners, municipalities and enterprises require scalable, reliable, secure and high-bandwidth network solutions,” said Ross Manire, President and CEO for ExteNet Systems. “ExteNet has an expansive fiber network in New York City, serving outdoor and in-building customers. This acquisition of Axiom Fiber Networks allows us to extend and densify our service footprint in lower Manhattan for the benefit of our customers. I would like to welcome Axiom customers, and employees, to the ExteNet family.”
ExteNet will undertake responsibilities of all existing Axiom customers. Axiom CEO Felipe J. Alvarez will join ExteNet’s management team.
