I am about to inherit 26 miles of dark fiber

Ah, the famous good-will of NANOG. I knew I would get some interesting responses.

I was part of the Field Ops group of Enron Broadband years ago. We deployed DWDM extensively. Admittedly it has been a while.

This 26 miles of dark fiber is deployed by a municipality in and around their fair city. Part of a deal with this new firm is that the firm will use the aforementioned six strands.

So the fiber is deployed throughout this city that has been largely under-serviced. By lack of resources, the city could not deploy services to businesses/enterprises.

So as I ponder the opportunity, I seek to tap the creative juices of NANOG.
