2016 – The Strategic Year

Haven’t kept up with our news over the past year? Don’t sweat it because as we turn the corner into 2017, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on what was a very strategic 2016. Our CEO, Felipe Alvarez, said it best when he stated, “It’s the year of the Monkey, expect lots of changes. This year will be really, really interesting.” Boy, was he right

When we entered 2016, Axiom Fiber Networks had just launched a brand new channel partner program, which has since opened many opportunities. We began by extending our reach through our strategic partnerships with Broadband Facility Partners (BFP), LightRiver Technologies and Adams Consulting. It’s our belief that the speed and simplicity that partners feel with Axiom is something that you cannot find with just any vendor – an aspect of our brand that has been an integral part of our success over the past year. As we head into 2017, we hope to continue to grow out our channel partner network, furthering the opportunity for growth and innovation.

Also this year, our VP of Operations, Patti Paulo was recognized by ISE Magazine as a 2016 industry influencer. In case you aren’t familiar with the program, ISE chooses a select number of telecom “influencers” who are asked a variety of questions on an array of topics relating to the industry today. If you happened to miss the articles where Patti spoke to the importance of small cells, strategic real estate for dark fiber and achieving network flexibility, you can read them here.

As you know, it wouldn’t be a successful year without all of those key industry events scattered throughout that our team made a priority to attend. Between our management team, we attended PTC, Metro Connect, Channel Partners, ITW, Telecom Exchange NYC, Marketplace Live and INCOMPAS. At
this stage, we arCiGXaRWUYAATdGs-1e really focused on leveraging and solidifying those essential partnerships that will not only help our customers but our partners’ customers. For that reason alone, these shows were critical and served as the ideal opportunity to foster relationships and assess the state of the industry. “These shows not only allowed us to go after those sophisticated channel partners that we’re hoping to work with, but it also gave us the opportunity to engage with industry thought leaders that we hope to collaborate with as we head into 2017,” comments John Trodden Jr., SVP of Sales.

Check out the rest of our blog to discover the many reasons we are thankful for  dark fiber as well as how to reap the benefits of our channel partner program.

As we enter into our second year, our team here at Axiom Fiber has been focusing on securing and fostering more strategic partnerships, just like the one with LightRiver.

It’s no secret that the New York City market is booming with data traffic and there is a seemingly insatiable appetite for dark fiber. In the recent months, Axiom Fiber has been focused on securing and fostering our strategic partnerships in order to better provide service providers with opportunities to grow and sustain their network. One of our partnerships has been with Broadband Facility Partners (BFP), who acts as the industry’s premier broker for dark fiber transactions. Founded in 2005, BFP specializes in asset and infrastructure dispositions and sourcing, and has quickly found the value in partnering with Axiom.

Just like Axiom, BFP values long-term relationships and, as with any fruitful partnership, long-term relationships translate to long-term revenue opportunities. Nick Kalavity, Principal at BFP explains, “We are eager to support Axiom’s network deployment in New York City. BFP has earned a reputation for facilitating ‘win-win’ deals between buyers and sellers, and that has been our focus since the company’s inception.”

“We are hungry,” comments John Trodden, SVP of Sales for Axiom. “Axiom needs a partner who can support our aggressive expansion into the New York City market, and BFP’s expertise and industry know-how makes them an ideal infrastructure partner.” Nick adds, “We value companies like Axiom who are collaborative and nimble with expertise within this niche.”

Axiom Fiber is a neutral telecom infrastructure services provider that specializes in flexible dark fiber solutions. Axiom believes in a supportive partnership, with ongoing training and a competitive commission structure.
